Newton R3 800W '80 Plus Platinum' Modular Power Supply

Fractal Design NEWTON R3 Series power supply units (PSUs) provide clean power efficiently and silently. The NEWTON R3 is the ultimate choice for demanding high-end gaming computers and ultra-quiet media PCs.

The visual appearance of NEWTON R3 Series PSUs is proof of Fractal Design's commitment to providing innovative computer components infused with stylish, elegant, contemporary Scandinavian design.

80 PLUS® Platinum certified efficiency

Newton R3 Series PSUs meet the highest efficiency specifications currently available for consumer-grade power supplies. This efficiency produces both positive environmental impact, as well as reduces electricity bills. Additionally, because the Newton R3 Series PSUs generate less heat, they provide power at lower fan speeds, which results in reduced noise levels.

Excellent electrical performance

Newton R3 Series PSUs feature excellent DC voltage regulation and ripple suppression; they can deliver their full-rated wattage continuously even with an intake temperature as high as 50°C.

SLI and CrossFireX support

Newton R3 Series PSUs are tested and certified compatible with the latest graphics cards.

Modular Cables

With the exception of a few, all cables on the Newton series power supplies can be detached from the PSU unit. This reduces the clutter, assists with a clean installation and improves the airflow in the computer case.

Compliant with the latest standards

Newton R3 PSUs are compliant with the latest PSU standards: ATX12V 2.31 and EPS12V2.92.

Semi-passive Fan Operation

Newton R3 Series PSUs generate very little heat, they work well without active cooling in most environmental and loading conditions, especially in a well-ventilated case. Subsequently, Newton R3 Series PSUs are equipped with temperature sensors that only start the fan when required to keep the operating temperature down.

Single powerful 12V rail

To provide maximum support for modern components, Newton R3 Series PSUs deliver their full wattage from a single 12V rail.

Extra-long ATX12V cable

Newton R3 Series PSUs are equipped with a 700mm long 12V ("P4") connector cable, which accommodates bottom-mounted-PSU computer cases.

Long-life Ball-bearing Fan

Newton R3 Series PSUs are equipped with ball-bearing fans, which provide the longest expected fan life available on the market.

Premium Japanese capacitors

Newton R3 Series PSUs are equipped with premium Japanese capacitors for maximum reliability and durability.

This oozes that 'premium feel' at first.

So my main reason for purchasing this PSU is that it was the cheapest Platinum rated power supply that didn't look suspect, I could find. I don't like noise, neither do I like needlessly wasting power.

Having had a look online, I saw that this Power Supply must have at one point been priced much dearer than the mere £90 I paid for it. I think that even if it were some £20-30 more expensive I'd still be very happy with this purchase.

The box it comes in is huge, the general experiencing opening up builds up a bit of excitement, they lay out a nice manual presented neatly as you open the box up. Taking out the innards reveals the unit itself, wrapped in a nice branded tie-bag, with a reeled up modular cable kit that has slots with each type of cable labelled, and a standard kettle lead.

The Power Supply is virtually silent, running an overclocked i5-6600K with a notoriously hot Radeon R9 270X reveals a faint murmur from the fans, barely any noise at all even when it's drawing nearly 25A from the 12V rail. So I'm pleased with this as it is quiet but mighty and didn't break the bank.

As far as cable quality is concerned, I found that the braiding on the cables wasn't great, and the connectors (especially SATA) were quite sharp on the plug, so much so that I cut myself on the finger trying to connect them to my HDDs. But apart from that I'm pretty happy with it!
