FSP Group Everest 900 Watt Power Supply

FSP Group Everest 900









The FSP Group Everest 900 is a solid power supply that is aimed at the gaming community.  After all, who needs 900 watts to run their E-machine?  Anyways, the Everest 900 is a stylish piece of equipment with a modular design so you get exactly as much clutter as you need.  The Everest 900 also boasts a large 120mm fan designed to keep the power supply within operating tolerances quietly.

The Everest 900 offers every feature you could want from a power supply including active power factor correction and a high operating efficiency allowing you to use your power hungry components as efficiently as possible.  Speaking of power hungry components, the Everest 900 comes with four 12V rails and all of the PCI-E/SATA connectors you could ever need.  All this for a reasonable price; it won’t break your bank, but it’s not exactly cheap either. Let’s see if the performance justifies the price starting with an in depth look at what this particular power supply has to offer.
