The Fractal Design ION+ 2 Platinum 860W PSU
We Like Long Cables And We Cannot Lie
The Fractal Design ION+ 2 Platinum 860W PSU is a fully modular PSU and offers 600mm long ATX and EPS power cables, as well as 550 + 120mm 6+2 PCIe cords, which means you shouldn’t be struggling to get those EPS cables plugged in at the top of the motherboard. The 80 Plus Platinum certification is nice to have, especially at a price tag just under $170 as the premium charged for some PSUs with this rating make it less than attractive.
NikkTech’s testing showed soild performance with voltages staying well within range under load. The PSU also generated less than 41dBA under full load, while at lower loads the fan disengages to give you essentially silent performance. If you are looking for an efficient PSU of about 860W power, and offers extra 12V power for your motherboard, the Fractal Design ION+ 2 Platinum 860W is one worth looking at.
Fractal Design recently updated their popular and award winning ION+ Platinum series of power supply units and with me today I have none other than the ION+ 2 Platinum 860W model.
