To begin with, MX-F1 PSUs offer 87% of ultimate efficiency. Operating at 20%/50%/100% loading, they are able to achieve 82%/85%/82% efficiency correspondingly. Nonetheless, the models cannot receive 80Plus Bronze certificate, since they feature limited voltage input range. All the models within the series employ a single +12V rail and boast a non-modular design.


This promotes for the connection of middle-efficiency components. They support Active PFC and a wide spectrum of protective functions (over-voltage, over-current, over-power, short-circuit). Cooling of internal components is ensured by a single 120 mm fan. …
