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.
Hydro G 750 W Efficiency was a pass for Gold on both sets of tests, and pretty awesome at load levels where it was not required. The semi-fanless mode with an FDB fan and some extra stickers in case you don't like the default ones, and you have a great value in a really good power supply.
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.
