Cougar GX-F Aurum 550w Power Supply Review
Mike Sanders / 2 years ago
Cougar has always looked to build upon its excellent range of power supplies with models to suit consumers of all levels and types. Want an inexpensive PSU? What about a top of the range model? – Then Cougar almost certainly has something to tempt you!
In announcing their latest design, however, I must admit that I’m more than a little taken with the GF-X Aurum!
Cougar GF-X Aurum Power Supply
The Cougar GF-X Aurum is certainly a design that appeals to the more ‘high-end’ specifications of the market. With gold-rated efficiency and a huge 7-year warranty, the particular model we have is the 550-watt version. It should, however, be noted that 650 and 750-watt versions are available.
With its sleek gold and black design, however, it’s definitely eye-catching. And in the good way too!

What Does Cougar Have To Say
“The COUGAR GX-F AURUM is a high-quality 80 PLUS Gold certified PSU with flawless power delivery in 50°C environments. Compact, efficient, silent and durable, GX-F AURUM is the best answer for those looking for the best value in PSUs.”
As this is a fully-modular power supply, you have a lot of flexibility in using only the cables you required. You are, however, limited as to how many are supplied with your particular model.
Fortunately, Cougar has you covered with a full list based on their entire GX-F Aurum range. The only factor I would note with the 550w version is that you only get 1 (spitting into 2) PCI-E cables. Pretty much exactly what the vast majority of us need for a graphics card, but not much scope for anything more beyond that.
