The Fractal Design ION+ 560P packaging is trimmed out in Scandinavian simplicity of white and black along with a picture of the included unit. The front of the package is mostly devoid of information. The rear of the packaging is similarly spartan. We see a few advertising points, a fan noise graph, and the 80 Plus Platinum seal. When we check the 80 Plus website we do find this unit listed so we will be seeing how this unit does in that regard a bit later on. The side of the package has the connector counts (reproduced below) and power label (reproduced below) for this unit. Lastly, this unit is covered by a 10 year warranty.

Fractal Design ION+ 560P Power Specifications

The Fractal Design ION+ 560P is advertised as being a single 12v rail power supply with a capacity up to 46.6A (or ~100% of the unit’s capacity) if necessary. The minor rails (5v and 3.3v) have a capacity of 20A each and the combined capacity of those two rails is 110W. Combined with these outputs, we find that this unit has 4 PCIe connectors, 6 SATA connectors, and 4 Molex connectors.

Once we open the Fractal Design ION+ 560P packaging we find the power supply, cables, mounting screws, power cord, velcro straps and user manual”. The user manual covers 40 pages in 9 languages and is remarkably complete. We find not only power tables and fan graphs but also a complete set of pinouts and other electrical specifications. Then, there are install instructions and troubleshooting guides. This is some of the best documentation we have seen outside of SilverStone here at The FPS Review and it is all very useful! So, let’s move on to the unit itself now.
