Coolermaster iGreen Power 430w
Being a 430w power supply, i wasn't expecting anything spectacular inside of the iGreen power supply. Most low wattage units have small components and poorly implimented cooling. Would this be the case with the iGreen? Lets find out.
The insides of the iGreen are fairly packed with the whole surface area of the power supply being fully utilized. The components are of a reasonable size for a unit rated at 420w and are even compareable to the components used in our recently reviewed FSP Epsilon 700w PSU!
I was slightly dissapointed to see no adjustable potentiometers (pots) inside the unit. Pots can come in useful for increasing the voltage levels on each of the rails if they dip outside of ATX specification.
Cooling the iGreen is a 120mm fan manufactured by Cooler Master. The maximum speed of this fan is 2400rpm with a noise level of 38db whilst pushing 87.85cfm. Luckily Coolermaster have implimented a fan speed controller to keep noise levels low, but we'll talk more about this on the next page.
