PSU Review – Xigmatek NRP-MC802

The NRP-MC802 is a relatively simple looking power supply with a glossy all-black chassis. The chassis of the NRP-MC802 is slightly longer than a standard ATX product, measuring 18cm deep, but it should easily fit inside most ATX compliant case. Care should be taken if the unit is to be installed into smaller and HTPC cases, where the space provided for the PSU is strictly limited.

At the left side of the chassis Xigmatek placed a simple, white sticker with the electrical specifications of the power supply. We suspect that most hardcore enthusiasts would prefer the white sticker to be placed at the top side of the chassis, away from their windowed case side panels.

The rear is entirely perforated to allow for the air pushed by the cooling fan to escape towards the outside of the case. Xigmatek went with the proven honeycomb grill design. Only a rounded on/off switch and a standard 3-DIN A/C power plug can be found at the rear side of the power supply.

The front of the power supply is partly perforated in order to aid the thermal performance of the PSU. It is also littered with the connectors for the unit’s modular cables. This unit offers the following number of connectors:

Native cables

24-pin ATX connector

1 x 4+4 pin 12V CPU connector

2 x 6+2 pin 12V PCIe connectors

Modular cables

2 x 6+2 pin 12V PCIe connectors

2 x 6 pin 12V PCIe connectors

10 x SATA connectors

6 x Molex connectors

2 x Floppy connector

The black 140mm cooling fan with the semi-transparent blades found inside of the Xigmatek NRP-MC802 is made by Young Lin Tech. The DFS132512H is a Hysint (high-quality sleeve) bearing high speed fan which can reach a maximum rotational speed of 1700RPM.
