The Nexus NX-5000 power supply is guaranteed to provide you with over 85% efficiency (see graph). This means the power supply is using the power it is drawing from the wall outlet more efficiently, with less electricity wasted. Obviously, this is better for the environment and it saves you money on your electricity bill! A more efficient power supply also results in a cooler power supply. So less cooling was needed and Nexus was able to make the power supply even quieter.
By carefully selecting each component, Nexus has created the best possible of mix of components to make their power supplies as silent as possible. Nexus leads the market when it comes to solid performance at the lowest possible noise level. When Nexus tests the noise level, they do this in an ISO-certified chamber for noise tests. It is important to know that the background noise in such a chamber is a little over 15 dB(A). These are the best possible conditions for these tests and hence you should always be wary when a manufacturer is claiming dB(A) values lower then 15 dB(A). How was the manufacturer able to measure this?
NX-5000 Sleeved Cables
Messy cables interfere too much with the airflow inside your PC. The NX-5000 cables are sleeved with a quality black and white X-mesh for a clean good look.
Active PFC Circuit
Power Factor Correction (PFC) allows the power distribution system in the NX-5000 to operate at maximum efficiency. This does not directly cut your electricity bill, but it will reduce energy consumption at the side of the power provider. As such, Nexus silent power supplies make better use of our planets resources. Active PFC is technically more complex then passive PFC, and matches the overall high quality standard and reliability of this Nexus power supplies.
This power supply is an ErP2013 power supply, which means your PSU is not using more than 0.5W at standby mode.
Full Range Automatic
The Nexus NX-5000 power supply can be used on 115VAC and 230VAC input power. Selection is automatically made. No voltage selection has to be set. Just plug in and go.
