Deepcool DQ1000 Quanta Power Supply Review

A Closer Look – Exterior
Power Supply Unit
Deepcool make use of a textured black PSU enclosure while the overall style of the PSU is dominated by the fan grille and 140mm black fan.
Both sides feature Deepcool labels, one which sports the branding and the other with all the power details and certifications.
The DQ1000 uses a semi-modular design with clearly labelled connectors, the hard wired cables come with basic sleeving.
The base is plain and gives us a closer look at the textured finish that Deepcool use.
At the rear we find ventilation mesh, a power switch and the kettle lead input. 100-240 VAC is supported
The hard-wired cables are quite dire: the quality of the sleeving is really poor. It feels cheap and it barely even hides the colour of the cables underneath. Hard-wired to the unit is a motherboard 24 pin and a pair of CPU EPS 8 pins. Having both EPS 8 pins hard wired seems strange as most people are unlikely to be using both.
The modular cables include four PCIe 6+2 pins which is sad because for a 1000W PSU I really wanted to see six. You also get 8 SATA, 6 Molex and 2 FDD spread across four cables which is a nice selection.
