Fractal Design Ion+ Platinum 860 Watt Power Supply Review




/ 4 months ago

Next Page »

If you’re currently on the market for a brand new power supply, then you might feel a little overwhelmed at the technical terms used. Efficiency, ratings, wattages, rails, etc. It’s a factor that (sadly) leads many to just buy the cheapest one they can find that offers the highest wattage. As if that was what made the difference between a good and bad power supply. Fractal Designs, however, are hoping to make things easier for you.

Fractal Design Ion+

The brand new range of Ion+ power supplies are, at least in terms of specifications, some of the most impressive power supplies released in recent memory. Platinum rated efficiency (the 2nd best you can get) and a design that speaks of a company who works hard to give you the best!

In this particular review, we look at the 860-watt variant. A power level delivered with a reported efficiency that should make this tick all of the right boxes for anyone looking for a new (or replacement) power supply.

What Fractal Design Has To Say

The Ion+ Platinum is a high-performance fully modular PSU with whisper-quiet operation, enhanced cable flexibility and superior output quality.

A user selectable semi-passive Zero RPM mode maintains pure silence under light loads, and the custom-tailored 140mm fan with FDB bearings barely breaks a whisper under heavy use. Revolutionary UltraFlex cable with its ultra-high strand count wire and special insulation bends and twists effortlessly to make installation and cable-routing a breeze.

Ion+ is available now in 560, 660, 760 and 860 watt capacities, all with 80PLUS® Platinum Efficiency, 10-year warranty, and a full electrical protection suite for your peace of mind

Connections

As this is a modular power supply, it’s important to know exactly what connectors are provided and what you need for your PC. Fortunately, Fractal Design has you covered.

The Ion+ 560w comes with more than enough to hook up any ‘normal’ gaming PC. Particularly with 4 PCIe connectors. Of course, you get more as you ‘up’ the wattage, but this model clearly has you covered!
