haven’t reviewed a power supply unit in quite a while and suppose it was inevitable that another one was on its way. Well today I will be reviewing a 550W power supply from a company named HuntKey. Never heard of them right? Same here and thus was curious at what HuntKey could bring to this already competitive power supply market.
Power supply demands have grown over the past few years with the arrival of faster machines sporting dual cores and quad core architectures that it’s crazy to think of where we’re at today. It’s not even microprocessors but also graphics cards where one card can draw huge chunks of power from a system. A few years back 300W was sufficient and yet today things have really changed because there are power supply offerings that even top over 1000W!
Just like Seasonic, HuntKey designs and manufactures their own power supplies under their own name and as well make power supplies for a couple of brands in the USA (Lenovo and Best buy to name a few). Operating out of China, HuntKey claims to be China’s largest PC power manufacture and today we will be reviewing their top of the line GreenStar 550W power supply which claims to have efficiency of up to 85%. I think 550W seems to be the norm nowadays so it will be interesting to see whether or not HuntKey should be a manufacture you should consider on your next power supply purchase. Read on my friends, read on!"
