The most notable difference between the NZXT PP800 and most of the power units which I’ve reviewed in the past few months is the presence of an 80 mm intake fan on the front of the unit. While NZXT claims that these fans together are quite quiet, an additional, uncontrollable fan is sure to generate some potentially unwanted noise.
Physically, though, the PP800 is quite sound. It’s black, and the outward-facing side bears the power outputs mentioned in the Features and Specifications section of the review. The rear of the unit is honeycombed for airflow and protection. A rocker switch can disconnect power entirely.
The bottom of the unit has a 120 mm intake fan which is circularly grilled.
The cables are sheathed for better airflow and cable management. The PP800 has one 20+4-pin motherboard connector, one 8-pin CPU connector, eight 4-pin device connectors, six SATA connectors, four PCI-Express connectors (two 6-pin and two 6+2-pin), and a floppy connector. The cables are not modular.
