Fractal Design Integra M 550W 80Plus Bronze Power Supply Review

A Closer Look – Exterior
First impressions of the unit are promising, with a matte black finish that gives it a nice premium look, contrasted by the 120mm white fan behind the ample ventilation on the top.
A nice Fractal Design logo on the side, smart enough to look nice when on show in your system.
A rather cool Fractal Design frosty logo is embossed on the bottom of the PSU; this will look great when you inverse mount the PSU.
The main specifications are on the other side, as you can see, we’ve got a powerful 12V rail, so there should be no issues pushing power to a hungry graphics card.
Around the back, you can see there’s a little extra ventilation at the top, as well as some modular connectors. The 24-pin and the 4+4 pin, which you’re absolutely going to need on any motherboard anyway, are hard-wired to the PSU.
Around the back, even more ventilation, as well as the power socket and a most welcome master power switch for when you need to completely power down your system.
There isn’t a lot of cables to deal with here, but you’ll find all the ones you’re likely to need. There’s a few Molex and SATA, as well as a dual 6+2 PCI-E cable.
The motherboard power cables are nice and long, great for those using a full-tower chassis where the PSU mounts in the bottom, as this will still allow you to route the cables behind the motherboard.
