"Once again we have another brand of power supply on the test bench that many of our readers will know little to nothing about. FSP Group has been around for quite some time and produces a very wide variety of power supplies for consumer, professional and industrial uses all across the world. Those that have been around long enough might also recognize the brand known as Fortron Source. We've been told that some of their latest power supplies boast great performance and efficiency, so we gladly accepted the offer when FSP asked if we would like to sample a unit.
FSP sent us the AU-700 power supply, the largest of four models in the AURUM lineup. FSP claims that the AURUM family of power supplies meets the 80Plus Gold standard with 90% efficiency and goes on to say that they are also "a perfect combination of premium quality and efficiency". Let's start taking a look at the features that our AU-700 offers and then we'll see if it has the performance to back up what it boasts on paper."
