The Fractal Design Ion+ Platinum with 760W max power is a very good power supply with plenty of strengths. The overall efficiency is high and the output noise is low even under severe operating conditions. The flexible modular cables offer a stress-free installation process and the build quality is excellent. The cherry on top is the fair price that Fractal Design asks for it, which allows for a high performance per dollar ratio. Lastly, the PSU has two EPS connectors along with a large number of PCIe ones, so it will easily support high-end gaming or potent video editing systems.
The major opponents of the Ion+ 760P are the aged, but still highly competitive, Corsair HX750 and a member of the highly popular Seasonic Focus line, the Focus Plus Platinum with 750W max power. Both achieve higher overall performance than the Ion+ 760P, but the latter takes the lead in the overall efficiency and noise output sections. With some small fixes, e.g., higher efficiency at super light loads and a more efficient 5VSB rail, the Ion+760P will be even better.
