FSP Hydro G PRO 1000W

FSP Group is one of the few actual power supply manufacturers and can be found providing OEM services for a number of other brands at various times including OCZ, Zalman, AOpen, Antec, SilverStone, Super Talent, Sigma, and many more. This wide distribution of power supplies by FSP is not surprising given that it has been in business since 1993 and is one of the top 10 producers of power supplies in the world. For this review, we are looking at the new Hydro G PRO line and, in particular, the 1000W model (HG2-1000). This is part of the Hydro G PRO series.

Has This Power Supply Gone PRO?

The Hydro G PRO 1000W is the second power supply we have seen from FSP here at TheFPSReview and it could not be more different than its predecessor (the SFX Dagger 600W). Today, we are looking at a full ATX12v/EPS sized unit that tips the scales at that magic 1000W figure. With the launch of new GPU’s by NVIDIA with their 30 series sucking down huge amounts of power again, this is certainly a timely moment to look at a unit that can support a system running one of these cards. Now, before we move on let’s see what FSP has to say about this unit:

Upgraded from the last generation, Hydro G Pro is an IEC62368 certified PSU that has been greatly improved in its safety design as well as a more compact dimension without compromising its efficiency. Like all FSP’s power supplies, Hydro G Pro delivers stable performance. The 80 Plus® Gold mark serves as an assurance to offer users a worry-free gaming experience.

Let’s move on now and see what we can expect when a user purchases the FSP Hydro G PRO 1000W power supply in retail in terms of documentation, accessories, cable count, rail layout, output characteristics, and general build quality.
