The Fractal-Design Edison M 650W 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 Fractal-Design Edison M 650W has an 80 Plus rating of Gold. This means the PSU operates at average efficiency levels of at least 87%, 90%, and 87% for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20% respectively. Gold is the second-best 80 Plus certificate available, and as such the Fractal-Design Edison M 650W is extremely efficient and comes highly recommended. The actual efficiencies for this PSU are 88.92%, 90.99%, and 88.63%, for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%.
The dimensions of the Fractal-Design Edison M 650W (LxWxH) are 16cm x 15cm x 8.6cm. Make sure to compare these measurements against the case you desire if planning on using it in a build.
The Fractal-Design Edison M 650W 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 Fractal-Design Edison M 650W is not designed for low volumes, meaning that its constant drone while your PC is on could potentially be noticeable and irritating, though this may only be a problem for those that require silent environments.
