    Bottom Line: Given the nice finish, the modular cables and the around $100 price tag, I'd say this power supply gets a good rating in the features column. Does the CableFree 550W pull off being a quality power supply from the masters of mod or does it turn out to be all show?

    Technical Overview and predictions

    First, let's see what's on A.C. Ryan's label......

    A.C. Ryan ACR-PS2100 +3.3V +5V +12V -12V -5V +5VSB
    Max Output Current 32A 35A 30A 0.5A N/A 2A
    Max Combined Peak Wattage 550W

    Looks good on the 5V and on the 12V.  This power supply may be suitable for just about any build you have.  There was no rating for -5V, which isn't surprising since the Intel ATX12V2.0 specifications doesn't have provision for -5V.

    Let's take a look at what connectors we get with this power supply.  Keep in mind this unit is modular, so these numbers can change by simply swapping out a cable.

    ATX connector 24-pin
    2 x 2 12V connectors 1
    2 x 3 PCIe 1
    6-pin Xeon/AUX connector 0
    5.25" Drive connectors 9
    3.5" Drive connectors 1
    SATA Drive power connectors 3
    Fan only connectors (thermostatically controlled 12V only) 4

    The A.C. Ryan comes with some specialty cables.  From left to right, we have fan only connectors (not thermostatically controlled,) SATA cables (without the 3.3V wire, as the case with any current modular power supply) and a PCI Express power connector.
