In Figure 21, you can see the power supply label containing all the power specs.
This power supply is sold as having two +12 V rails, which is correct, since this unit has two +12 V over current protection channels. Click here to understand more about this subject.
The two +12 V rails are distributed as follows:
- +12V1 (solid yellow wire): Main motherboard cable, the SATA and peripheral connectors, and one of the red connectors of the modular cabling system
- +12V2 (yellow/blue wires): The ATX12V/EPS12V cable, one of the red connectors of the modular cabling system, and the video card cable that is permanently attached to the power supply
The power supply has a sticker on the modular cabling system saying which red connector is connected to which +12 V rail. This was correct from the original CMX 700 W unit, where this information was present, but internally both connectors were installed on the same +12 V rail.
How much power can this unit really deliver? Let’s check it out.
