Xigmatek Centauro 600W Power Supply Review

The Xigmatek Centauro 600W modular power supply offers a good energy efficiency at low and moderate load, has most cables modular designed, has a low price and is thus well suited for mid-range PCs.

Even the modular cables from the Centauro power supply were provided with an additional mesh cover and can be pleasantly installed in most chassis, but the protective cap on the back of the SATA plugs can get off too fast, as seen on a few PSUs before. All hard wired cables are high quality build and well made. And the PSU offers two additional 3-pin Molex connectors to connect two more 12 volt fans to the PC. It would be favourable for the durability of the PSU, when only 105°C capacitors are used, which was unfortunately not the case inside of this Centauro power supply.

However, one receive a economically priced high quality 80Plus Bronze PC power supply with a good energy efficency. You can compare the power consumption depending on daily usage easily with the interactive cost of electricity calculator, to see if it is worth for your daily usage to buy a 80 Plus Bronze, Silver, Gold or 80 Plus Platinum PSU. If you like to save a bit more money in the future, then you should buy an 80 Plus Gold PSU.

All in all the Xigmatek Centauro 600W is inexpensive for a modular power supply and shows an overall good result.
