Space Saving

The Nexus Value 430 is an ATX form factor power supply and it will fit in any ATX form factor computer case. We have only made the VALUE 430 a bit shorter then regular ATX power supplies. The smaller size results in more space inside your pc for more/better airflow.

The Value 430 has a length of just 12.5cm. Compared to regular ATX power supplies that is 1.5cm shorter and 4 to 5,5cm shorter than modular power supplies.






Noise Level

By carefully selecting each and every component we aim at creating the best possible mix of components to make our power supplies as silent as possible. We carefully balance performance and noise level to get the best of both worlds. We confident that our power supplies are leading the market when it comes to solid performance at the lowest possible noise level.

We test the noise level of our power supplies in an ISO certified chamber. This chamber is the industry's standard for noise tests and the background noise in such a chamber is a little over 15dB(A). Any product producing lesser noise then 15dB(A) cannot be measured. The below graph shows our measurements at different loads.






We aim to use the electricity from your wall outlet as efficient as possible. The Value 430 is guaranteed to provide you with over 80% efficiency at all loads and as you can see from the graph below, the efficiency level reaches sometimes as high as 85%. Lesser waste means lesser heat and better conditions in your pc system...and a lower electricity bill.





a. Maximum continuous total DC output power should not exceed 430Watt

b. Maximum continuous combined load on +3.3V and +5V outputs should not exceed 140W.

c. Mamximum peak total DC output power should not exceed 500W.





- 430 Watt true power power supply
- a minimum of 80% efficiency guaranteed at all loads!
- Real silent performance with less then 15.0 dB(A) in idle mode
- with 4x 12V Rails 
- Sleeved cables for a tidy system
- Active PFC
- Real Silent 12cm fan
- Excellent airflow, honey-comb grill
- Full range automatic. No voltage selection has to be set
- Safety features such as: over-voltage and short-circuit  protection
- Complies to WEEE & RoHS environment directives


Sleeved cables

We want to keep things nice and tidy. Messy cables interfere too much with the airflow inside your PC and... it does not look very nice. So therefore we have sleeved all cables of this power supply with a black mesh. Nice clean and tidy.


Active PFC circuit

Power factor Correction (PFC) allows the power distribution system to operate at maximum efficiency. This does not so much influence your electricity bill but it will reduce energy consumption at the side of the power provider so it is contributing to using tour planets resources better and more carful. Active PFC is technically more complex then passive PFC and better matches the overall high quality standard of this Nexus power supply.

Full range automatic

This power supply can be used on 115VAC and 230VAC input power. Selection is automatically made so no voltage selection has to be set. Just plug and go.



 Now let's go to the packaging!
