Specifications and Package

The features for the NZXT Hale82 series are below:

  • 80+ Bronze Certification – The HALE82 series from NZXT operates with high efficiency: at 20%, 50%, and 100% loads, efficiencies are 82%, 85%, and 82% respectively.
  • 100% Japanese Capacitors – High quality components promote longer lifespan and better reliability.
  • 120mm Two-Ball Bearing Fan – For smooth, silent rotation and optimal air intake.
  • Strong Single +12V Rail – A single +12V rail provides stability and ease of use with the ability to deliver clean currents under a heavy load.
  • Modular Design – Includes a selection of flat cables that allow the user to pick and choose which cables they want to use, maximizing cable management and airflow inside chassis.
  • Large Tower Support – Extended 8pin connector for bottom mounted cases or large cases.
  • Dual 8pin connector – For high end motherbaords dedicated to overclocking.
  • Keeping it Safe – The HALE82 series offers over voltage, current, power, temperature, under voltage, and short circuit protection.

The included cable connectors for the Hale82 series units are as follows:

  • 20+4 Pin: 1
  • 4+4 Pin: 2
  • 6 Pin: 2
  • 6+2 Pin: 2 (4 on 850W model)
  • Molex: 4
  • SATA: 8

Looking at the specifications there are two main differences (other than wattage) between the 750W and 850W models. The first is the 850W model receives two additional 6+2 Pin connectors to handle multi-GPU setups. The second difference is the 750W has 636W/62A on the 12V single rail, whereas the 850W has 840W/70A available. Again, this is due to the likelihood of having a multi-GPU setup more suitable for the 850W model.

Moving onto the packages, the boxes for the Hale82 Series products are simple and sleek: black box with white lettering and colour bands that are model-specific. For the 750W it’s a green band of colour, while the 850W model gets yellow trim.

Nearly identical on the bigger model.

The accessories included are rather minimal: User’s Manual, a cable bag, and screws.

The cables are flat and plasticized, a design that many users find easy to work with, particularly due to the flexibility working well in tight spaces when trying to practice good cable management inside your case.

A closeup of the cables shows the flat design. Each connector is labelled to avoid possible problems by novice system builders.

Let’s take a closer look.
