HuntKey Jumper/R90 300W 80Plus Gold

We recently received a new power supply from HuntKey dubbed the R90, or Jumper 300G for the western markets. It uses the HK400-52PP layout, which means the PSU is capable of delivering 400W at lower temperatures; however, the 300W rating is for 45C operation. The 300G is also one of the smaller PSUs with an 80 Plus Gold rating, making it an interesting option for HTPCs and average computers. But what about the price?

We don’t have an exact figure for the US market yet, but materials and parts should cost less than half of what the Seasonic X-400FL requires, which means final pricing could be around $80-$90. One advantage the Jumper 300G has over the X-400FL is that it uses a native 400W design, where Season is building off an 850W design. Since the 300G comes with a fan, it will obviously generate more noise than the fanless X-400FL, but the temperatures should also be lower. This could very well be the actively cooled alternative to Seasonic’s X-400FL.
