NZXT Hale82 750W and 850W
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.
