FSP Hydro G 850 proved to be a solid unit that delivered very good performance with minimal noise and an attractive price. The cooling fan is very #quiet and the power supply operates in silent fan-less mode at low power levels...
When we look at the DC output quality of the FSP Hydro G 750W, we see that this unit once more is flexing its muscles and not just doing well by absolute terms but also by relative terms. During testing, the Hydro G 750W saw all of the main DC output rails start off at ~10mV of ripple/noise or below.
Redundant computer power supplies have been a fixture in the enterprise server market since failover hardware solutions were first conceived to deal with contingency planning and system disaster recovery. FSP has now brought its Twins solution to the enthusiast market, and FSP have done it quite well.
FSP released their Hydro G series late last year, and it was well received in our labs. It excelled in all key areas, delivering first class load regulation and stellar efficiency – ripple suppression was also close to top of the class. Not everyone could afford the Hydro G and today we look at the latest, more affordable Hydro X range of power supplies from FSP targeting a much wider audience.
