Final Thoughts and Conclusions

The new Hydro Platinum 750W PSU from FSP proved to be a very good power supply and a worthy addition to their power supply lineup. The unit delivered excellent efficiency and very good performance across the board.

The electrical performance of the Hydro PTM 750W PSU was very good. The unit exhibited tight voltage regulation, high efficiency (80 Plus Platinum) and good AC ripple and noise suppression. The cooling fan starts out relatively quiet and stays that way through mid-power levels. The Hydro PTM Series also features fully modular, flat ribbon-style cables for easy installation and clean builds.

The FSP Hydro Platinum power supplies offer a full complement of safety and protection features and come backed by a 10-year warranty. Very nice!

The FSP Hydro PTM Series power supplies should be currently available from your favorite online retailer. As you might expect, Platinum level efficiency certification comes at a price, which translates to about $10 more than FSP’s Hydro Gold Series.
