**B Grade** GX-F 550W 80 Plus Gold Modular Power Supply
B Grade items may have been used, have damaged packaging, missing accessories or a combination of these (Motherboards may be missing I/O shields).
Some items may have scuff marks or slight scratches but should otherwise be an operable product.
In addition to the famous gaming accessories and stylish cases, Cougar also offers PC power supplies. The GX-F Series is directed at gamers that value performance, style and efficiency. To this end Cougar has combined modern technology with 80 Plus Gold efficiency, quiet fans and fully modular black cables with enough connectors for modern gaming PCs. Rated at between 550 and 750 Watts, Cougar covers the entire performance range from value-oriented systems with a single high-performance graphics card up to SLI and crossfire setups.
The Cougar GX-F 550 Watt at a Glance
- 550 Watt power supply with powerful 45.5 A single rail
- Very high efficiency thanks to 80 Plus Gold certification
- Quiet 135 mm fan with semi-passive mode
- Fully modular cable management
- Two 6+2-Pin PCIe connectors for graphics cards
- Six SATA connectors
Power Supply with 80 Plus Gold Efficiency and Powerful 45.5 A Single Rail
Cougar packs modern technology including DC-DC down-conversion for the +5- and +3.3 Volt rail into the particularly compact 15 cm deep housing. This type of voltage conversion makes the GX-F series power supplies particularly flexible: If required, almost the entire rated power can be called up on the +12 Volt rail. The 550 Watt model can therefore consistently provide up to 546 Watts for the CPU and graphics cards. If the +3.3- and +5 Volt rails are required, up to 130 Watts can be supplied. GX-F power supply units can therefore produce the full rated power no matter the load case scenario - even with an ambient temperature of 50 degrees Celsius.
Cougar attaches particular importance to the noise produced by mid-range and high-end power supplies. After all, your gaming experience should never suffer because of how loud your power supply is - especially in games where a quiet and stealthy approach is of utmost importance. The supplied 135 mm fan utilises quiet hydrodynamic plain bearings and is controlled via an advanced fan controller. Under load load the fan can spin at less than 550 RPM and thus remain virtually inaudible. The airflow-optimised fan grille also helps to ensure quiet and efficient operation due to it being optimised for reducing air turbulence. GX-F series power supplies therefore operate either quietly or silently no matter what load is placed on them. Thanks to the premium components and build quality, the quiet operation and low fan speeds have no effect on the service life.
Extensive Electronic Protection & Multiple Connectors
Just as important as performance and noise is the safety of the power supply, especially when gamers demand a lot from their high-end hardware. Due to the precise voltage regulation and low residual ripple, the protective circuits are also important in order to preserve the power supply as well as nearby components in critical situations. With over- and undervoltage protection (OVP, UVP) as well as protection against overload (OPP), overcurrent (OCP) and short-circuit (SCP)), power supplies in this series are ready for anything.
Cougar also undoubtedly takes the needs of gamers seriously when it comes to connectivity: The 550 Watt model offers two 6+2-pin PCI-Express power connectors, in order to supply both SLI- and Crossfire setups. Additionally 20+4-pin ATX- and 4+4-pin CPU connectors are available for additional components as well as six SATA and three 4-pin Molex connectors. For neat and tidy cabling, all cables come braided in black. As such the Cougar GX-F can be said to offer incredible value when it comes to 80 Plus Gold power supplies!
