The Cougar CM 550 uses a modular part system. Both the EPS / ATX cable, as well as the 4 / 8 pin cables are firmly connected to the power supply. This cable is a kind permanently mounted with two 4-pin and a 4 pin floppy connector. The other ports - as shown below - are designed Modular. The ATX / EPS power connector and 12V power connectors are both constructed variable, the power supply, the problem with older 20-pin ATX and the newer 24-pin EPS connectors are connected. With the number of the 4-pin connector to keep the Cougar Moltex CM 550 how many modern power supplies back a bit and is only 5 pieces available, as they more and more, SATA connections are replaced.
Unfortunately, the power supply exactly stingy with the SATA ports, of which four of them on two tracks available only. Other power supplies are bidding often six ports on two strands or even more. Demanding users with two CD-ROMs a raid of two disks with four ports have already used them all. Cougar should perhaps reflect on the floppy connector on the fixed cable to remove cable and Molex to two times and one or two SATA to twice the change. The floppy connector adapter may be attached to an above. Or one out modular cables as the CM 700 in the form of the 2x3. The power supplies of the Cougar series have an automatic dynamic load balancing on the 12V line. not used to all the output lines of the power supply, then the use of performance does not automatically leads to the lines use diverted so that the voltage is stabilized there. This can also improve system stability even in when a few lines much 12V current is based, such as in SLI / Crossfire systems.
