Review FSP Hydro G Pro 1200W Gold ATX 3.0 PCIe 5.0



Introduction


FSP has shown us quality in every product I have had the opportunity to review and they recently shipped their new ATX 3.0 series PSU with PCIe 5.0 connection which powers the new Nvidia RTX 4000 series of cards so we will take a look at the FSP Hydro G Pro 1200W in detail in its new version.



Unboxing FSP Hydro G Pro 1200W ATX3.0 PCIe 5.0

 

FSP presents us with a fairly familiar packaging offering relevant information that together with the small ribbon that FSP adds tells us that we have the source compatible with ATX 3.0 and PCIe 5.0 with it we know that we can connect any Nvidia RTX 4000 graphics card. On the other hand, we find a fully modular power supply with flat cables that will allow us a good management of the mimes inside the cabinet and without forgetting that we have Japanese capacitors of last generation to provide the best performance of the same.



On the back of the packaging we find relevant information about the FSP Hydro G Pro such as its main features as well as in detail how the inside of it would look like and also showing that it is fully modular which uses as mentioned before flat cables for better handling inside the cabinets.


We also show us the ECO mode which is an optional function for the user if you want to activate it or not with it will keep cool the power supply until reaching an estimated load otherwise we have enough information about the FSP Hydro G Pro 1000W ATX3.0 PCIe 5.0.



On the sides we are provided with information on the distribution of the rails in a small table that breaks down every detail and on the other side we find the amount of cables that we include and as we have seen the packaging complies with the just enough to inform us of what we have in our hands.



Accessories FSP Hydro G Pro 1200W ATX3.0 PCIe 5.0


The accessories that FSP includes are quite complete and offer everything necessary for the use of the Hydro G Pro and therefore a form of customization quite consistent with the brand already known.



Here is a breakdown of what is included with the FSP brand:


- Power cord

- Sticker for customization

- Screws for installation

- Product Warranty

- 24-Pin Cable

- GPU Cable

- 12VHPWR GPU Cable (12+4 pin)

- CPU Cable

- Molex Cable

- Sata Cable

- Floppy cable

- Velcro straps with FSP logo

- Power supply tester

As we could appreciate the amount of accessories and all the wiring is complete to perform the installation so we will not have major problems.

 

Technical Specification




FSP Hydro G Pro 1200W ATX3.0 PCIe 5.0

When looking at the Hydro G Pro 1200W we see an excellent job by FSP its extremely careful design in matte black make it very elegant and very well built. The dimensions are 150X150X86 mm a more compact size than their brothers in the Hydro PTM PRO series.



As mentioned on the sides we have the option of customization through some Stickers that are included in green and red which allow us to change a little our source, although it is something that FSP has shown not only in this model but in others of his authorship something that will attract the attention of the most enthusiastic users.

In the part of the modular connections of the FSP Hydro G Pro 1200W ATX3.0 PCIe 5.0 are well marked to avoid connecting something wrong and as we have a new connector 12VHPWR for the new Nvidia cards now we will see it in this model so that part is excellent otherwise its original design to the traditional version Hydro G Pro 1000W Hydro G Pro that does not have connectors.


In the other part we find the connection for the power cable and the on/off button and the ECO Mode button which has the purpose of making our power supply have a hybrid mode, so we will not have the fan permanently active but when the load exceeds 30% the fan will be activated at a certain speed and as it would rise depending on the load itself, but this is an option for the user that can be activated or not.


And at the bottom we have the label that shows a complete description of the power and its distribution in each of the rails, as well as more remarkable information of their protections or other relevant data of this product of the FSP brand.


As we have been able to appreciate the design of the FSP Hydro G Pro 1200W ATX3.0 PCIe 5.0 has been excellent as its construction is quite solid and has very good components that make it ideal for Gaming and enthusiast apart from it has a fully modular design which allows effectively order all the wiring inside the cabinet as we can choose what we need to install and even more being compatible with the new technology of Nvidia makes it a very viable alternative for those who want to be at the forefront in terms of PSU is concerned.

Performance Testing

Test Equipment



Methodology

First of all, we perform the tests using the AIDA64 Engineer program which has Test to measure the load of our equipment and in turn verify its consumption and also the variability that may exist in each of the main rails with which we can see if our test equipment is stable or not. Each test will take approximately one hour for stock configuration and also for an Overclocking configuration so we will know if our equipment is stable.

Installation FSP Hydro G 1200W Gold ATX 3.0 PCIe 5.0







FSP Hydro G 1200W Gold ATX 3.0 PCIe 5.0 Testing


We have subjected the power supply to the AIDA64 Engineer stress test to analyze the regulation offered by the voltages on the +12V, +5V and +3.3V rails. As we can see it offers at all times values very close to the theoretical values, being very stable and within the ATX standards.


The graph shows the little variability that we will have using the equipment at full power or in more demanding environments such as overclocking so the FSP Hydro G Pro 1200W offers very good stability and excellent power delivery so its performance and this shows that the ATX standard is met.




As for its consumption in CPU load (W) the increase is palpable with Overclocking since in the default configuration of the test equipment maintained normal margins according to what Intel mentions so the use of more energy is confirmed if we perform Overclocking.



Final Conclusions

The FSP Hydro G Pro 1200W Gold is an excellent power supply highlighting its stability in each of the rails and very low noise in the fan. Its power offers the ability to adapt to the needs of the user being compatible with the Nvidia RTX Series 40 as it offers the 12VHPWR connector. In addition, it offers excellent energy efficiency 80 plus Gold and Cybenetics Gold so we are more than guaranteed its excellent performance.


The Hydro G Pro Series comes in variants ranging from 850W to 1200W being this 1200W model on sale for $230 in online stores and its maximum value is the one we mentioned so each user will decide whether to go for this capacity or a lower one.
