After removing the top of the case, we can see the following:


It's a 135 mm fan - Champion CF1325H12D. It’s a Double Ball Bearing brushless fan running at 12V DC 12V, 0.6A. The so-called Axial-Tech design places an outer ring on the propellers to maximize incoming airflow without compromising noise generation.


Without cables, the unit weighs 2.36 kg.



Coming from ‘Nippon Chemicon,’ this is a well-recognized and highly reputable 100% Japanese manufacturer of capacitors. Asus’s PSUs provide high reliability, and that’s why they offer an excellent, 10-year warranty. Rated to 105C, this is precisely what you want to see in any good quality PSU.




Inside, there are mainly high-end Japanese capacitors. The soldering quality is very good.


ROG heatsinks, according to Asus, have 2x more volume than traditional designs, facilitating lower temperatures, longer component lifespan, and extended 0dB operation.



Seasonic has made a platform, and it’s a very close one to their Prime Ultra Platinum product. The APFC MOSFETs are 2x Infineon IPP60R080P7 (600V, 23A @ 100°C, Rds(on): 0.08Ohm), with On Semiconductor NCP1654 APFC Controller. The IC drivers are 2x Silicon Labs Si8230BD and Champion CM6901T2X Resonant Controller. On the secondary side, you’ll see a Weltrend WT7527V supervisor IC. You can also see the standby PWM controller, Leadtrend LD7750R.
