Fractal Ion+ 2 Platinum 860W PSU Review

The power of silence

Fractal Ion+ 2 Platinum 860W

Today we’ll be taking a look at Fractal’s update to the Ion+ Platinum power supply, the Ion+ 2 Platinum. All of your favorites remain like the iconic UltraFlex cables, fully modular connections, and 80+ Platinum efficiency. One of the new additions is a second 8-pin EPS power cable to handle higher-end motherboards with multiple CPU power connections. An update to ATX 12v v2.52 offers better support for low power modes such as Alternative Sleep Mode (ASM) for high efficiency even when the computer isn’t in use. Add in user-selectable semi-passive cooling, and a solid 10-year warranty, and you have the right formula for worry-free power.


PC Test Bench would like to thank Fractal Design for sending over the Ion+ 2 Platinum for us to check out!


Fractal’s take on the Ion+ 2 Platinum Power Supply:

The Ion+ 2 Platinum is a high-performance fully modular PSU with whisper-quiet operation, enhanced cable flexibility, and superior output quality. It ships with two 8-pin ATX12V/EPS cables, ensuring compatibility with new motherboards.

A user-selectable semi-passive Zero RPM mode maintains pure silence under light loads, and the custom-tailored 140 mm fan with FDB bearings stays practically whisper-quiet even under heavy load. Revolutionary UltraFlex™ cable with its ultra-high strand count wire and special insulation bends and twists effortlessly to make installation and cable-routing a breeze.

Ion+ 2 Platinum is available in 560, 660, 760, and 860-watt capacities, all with 80PLUS® Platinum Efficiency, 10-year warranty, and a full electrical protection suite for peace of mind.
