Cougar SX700

Roundup: 12 Gaming Power Supplies Compared
By , Patrick Afschar

With a street price of around $180 (if you can find it in your country), the Cougar SX S700 is in the most expensive upper-third of this roundup. As expected, it comes well-packaged. With premium materials and an interesting orange/red underside, the Cougar SX S700 is a real treat both to the touch and for the eye. This goes for the well-constructed modular and round cables as well. Only the ATX, PCIe, and CPU cables are hard-wired.

When it comes to cable length and connectivity, the Cougar SX S700 is rather generous with its eight SATA and four PCIe cables. The PSU is both Nvidia SLI-ready and AMD CrossFire-certified in case you want to use multiple graphics cards. The Cougar SX S700 has four dedicated +12 V rails available, two of which provide up to 20 or 24 A.
