Fractal Design Ion+ Platinum Power Supply

Article Pages:

The newest power supply from Fractal Design focuses on silent operation. When set to semi-passive, the fan in the power supply drops to 0 RPM until enough load is applied to the system and it needs to spin up.

The other notable feature from the press release below is the new cables that come with the power supply. Fractal designed them to be ultra-flexible to make cable management and routing easier. They are made from high strand count wires and new insulation materials which, reduces the diameter of the cables in order to achieve the flexibility needed.

The Fractal Ion+ is available now in 560, 660, 760 and 860 watt capacities, and is rated 80 PLUS® Platinum Efficiency. You can check out the press release below.

 

New UltraFlex™ cables and custom semi-passive fan offer game-changing flexibility and performance with silent efficiency
Sweden, July 31st, 2019 – Available immediately from Fractal Design, the Ion+ Platinum is a modular, high-performance PC power supply with emphasis on whisper-quiet operation, enhanced cable flexibility, and superior output quality.

A user selectable semi-passive Zero RPM mode ensures the fan won’t spin up until needed, and even then it is unlikely to be noticed thanks to a highly efficient custom design leveraging an exceptionally low minimum speed.

One of the most revolutionary new features introduced with the Ion+ is Fractal Design’s UltraFlex™ DC cabling. An extremely high strand-count with specially formulated insulation made it possible to reduce conductors to just 0.08 mm in diameter – half the thickness of competing products – without loss of efficiency or current capacity. The UltraFlex™ cable bends and twists effortlessly, eliminating the inherent hassles of traditional rigid power supply wiring to make installation and cable-routing a breeze.
Ion+, available now in 560, 660, 760 and 860 watt capacities, is rated 80 PLUS® Platinum Efficiency, comes with a 10-year warranty and sports a full electrical protection suite for your peace of mind.
