MSI’s latest addition to their power supply unit lineup is the MAG GL Series, which complements their existing range of PCIe 5.0 ready power supplies. It is not only ATX 3.0 compatible and PCIe 5.0 ready, but it also features distinctive yellow native 16 Pin connectors that aid in easy assembly identification. This power supply unit is certified as 80 Plus Gold and boasts full modularity, a single rail design, and a DC to DC structure. With these impressive features, it is evident that this power supply unit is specifically designed to handle the demands of high-performance graphics cards while ensuring a consistent power supply. Furthermore, its compact dimensions of 140x150x86 mm make it suitable for most micro-ATX chassis installations.
The MAG GL series introduces an ATX 3.0 power supply that provides full compatibility with NVIDIA GeForce 40 series graphics cards. It adheres to both the PCIe 5.0 and Intel PSDG (Power Supply Design Guide) ATX 3.0 standards. The ATX 3.0 standard ensures that the power supply can handle up to twice the total power excursion and three times the GPU power excursion. With its native 16 Pin PCIe connectors, it can deliver up to 600 W of power, reducing the need for adapters and optimizing assembly space. These ATX 3.0 power supplies from MSI are now available across the entire series, offering users a range of options to choose from, including the MAG A850GL PCIE5 and MAG A750GL PCIE5 models.
After investigating instances of power supply connector burnouts when used with high-end graphics cards, the primary cause was found to be improper plugging and pin fallout. To address these issues directly, MSI developed a new cable that effectively resolves both concerns.
In order to enhance visibility and ensure proper connection, the color of the cable’s connector is changed to yellow. This modification allows users to easily confirm if the connector has been securely plugged in.
