Chieftec CFT-650-14C compatibility review

The Chieftec CFT-650-14C power supply has a maximum wattage output of 650W. This is a decent capacity, and should be fine at handling the majority of mid-performance PC builds, but you could find yourself in trouble if you do not make certain of its capability to power any proposed build. Remember that a higher PSU capacity does not necessarily equate to a higher wattage output and a more expensive electricity bill. In fact, you may find that a higher capacity PSU will function more efficiently than a lower capacity PSU because it is dealing with a lower percentage of its maximum load - that is, it is not being stressed to the same extent.

The Chieftec CFT-650-14C has an 80 Plus rating of Standard. This means the PSU operates at average efficiency levels of at least 80% for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%. Standard is the lowest 80 Plus certificate available, but with 80% load efficiency minimums, the Chieftec CFT-650-14C is still reliably efficient and is by no means a bad PSU choice. The actual efficiencies for this PSU are 80.51%, 84.42%, and 80.22%, for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%.

The dimensions of the Chieftec CFT-650-14C (LxWxH) are 15cm x 15.4cm x 8.5cm. Make sure to compare these measurements against the case you desire if planning on using it in a build.

The Chieftec CFT-650-14C is modular, meaning that cables can be taken out and connected back in as necessary. This can make cable management much easier, leading to a less chaotic build, and better airflow.

The Chieftec CFT-650-14C is designed for low volumes, meaning that its constant drone while your PC is on would be less noticeable - ideal for those that prefer silent environments.
