I think the cable distribution is interesting, with SATA and Molex connectors mixed on all cables.

OCP seems a bit slack though, since you could pull 30A off the 12V2 line that is rated for only 18A.

Cheers

I've just got this email from FSP:

Thank you for article, it is good to see AU-750M on HardwareSecrets.com. I would like to update you a few things regarding the AURUM 700 and AURUM 750M.

1. AU-700 and AU-750M are not exactly identical. The main differences on PCBA are the PFC Chokes (AU-750M has got bigger PFC choke and AU-700 has a smaller PFC choke) and Bridges.

2. AU-750M has higher efficiency from the PCBA since we need to compensate for the loss of modular cables and connectors.

3. We have managed to adjust the acoustic level to a pretty good acoustic profile. The latest profile looks like the graphs below and we are continuously trying to make it even quieter.
