Features & Specifications
The standard features of Mushkin PSU's enable wide range compatibility with the latest connector and power standards. Also included are advanced power and thermal management with safeguards to protect installed components.
VersaPlug - Mushkin's innovative slide-in 20/24-pin and 4/8-pin universal motherboard connectors allow wide-spread compatibility with motherboards using the latest ATX/BTX/EPS standards. Allows for an organized case and improves airflow by using only the required cables.
Enhanced Power Conditioning - The HP-580AP's components are selected to provide ultra-low ripple and superior regulation under varying load. Additionally, this unit features a heavy-gauge ground/return wire to further reduce noise and ripple. All these features provide ultra-low ripple (1%) and superior voltage regulation (1%) under all load levels.
RailFusion - When high draw devices exceed the maximum allowed current per 12V rail (20A), this feature combines the rails to avoid overcurrent shutdown. THe green LED on the back of the unit will illuminate when RailFusion is active.
ActiveShield Technology - The HP-580AP PSU incorporates active protection for installed components. These protection measures include:
Power Factor Correction - Facilitated with the universal input 90VAC ~ 250VAC active PFC with the PF value 0.96 at 115V or 230V with the EN 61000-3-2, class D standards.Enhanced Thermal & Acoustic Design - Under light load, the fan speeds are reduced for quiet computing. When loading is increased, the PSU fan speeds are increased for proper temperature regulation.
