Corsair CS850M 850W Power Supply
     Thu, Aug 27 2015 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair has really made a name for themselves in the power supply market over the past few years. This is mainly because of their high-end AX and HX series, but at the end of the day not everyone needs a super high-end power supply. Corsair’s CS series is marketed more towards the typical user / builder who is looking for low energy use and easy installation. Today we are taking a look at the CS850M which is an 80PLUS Gold certified power supply. It also features flat modular cables and a 3-year warranty. Does this power supply hold the same high-quality and performance that we’ve seen from other Corsair power supplies? Let’s take a look!"

Posted by: STAFF
SuperFlower is one of the leading names in the PSU market, with a wide range of products that cater to a wide range of budgets, although their specialty certainly seems to be in the high-end market, where they offer an impressive range, both in terms of aesthetics and performance for the enthusiast and prosumer markets. Today, I’ll be taking a look at not one, but two of the latest SuperFlower power supplies; the Platinum rated 750W and the Titanium rated 1000W.

SilverStone Strider Gold 1500W Power Supply Unit Review
     Wed, Aug 19 2015 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few days ago NVIDIA released the fastest single GPU graphics card in the market called the TITAN X a real beast featuring a massive 12GB's of onboard VRAM memory, 3072 CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, 96 ROPs, 384-bit wide memory interface and a TDP of 250W. Luckily although a few years back such performance would be far more power hungry today even 4 of these beasts would require a total output of roughly 1000W. Of course although these power requirements are indeed very low for such cards we need not forget the rest of the system components so adding those as well means that you'd certainly need around 1500W to be on the safe side. Unfortunately the market is not really filled with 1500W (1.5KW) power supply units but if you can afford to get 4 ultra-high end graphics cards then you shouldn't have a problem finding a suitable one and the Strider Gold model by SilverStone which we have here with us today could be the right one for the job.

If one can speak of reason with a power supply, this Cooler Master 550 Watt power supply not only falls in this category for its semi modular design. In the following review we take a closer look to the cable management, the power supply part and the energy efficiency in practice of the Cooler Master V550SM 80PLUS Gold power supply.

FSP Aurum Pro 1200W Power Supply Unit Review
     Thu, Aug 13 2015 | 4:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you happen to be one of those people who like spending a small fortune to build a gaming rig then the two hardware components on top of your to buy list are (or at least should be) the best graphics cards available for dual/tri/quad configurations (the NVIDIA Titan X was just released by the way) and an power supply unit powerful enough to support them. Up to 10 years ago you'd really have a hard time to find models capable of outputting even 800W but things were quite different since tri/quad-card configurations were not really available back then. Today however in order to build a gaming rig with 3 or 4 graphics cards you need at least a 1200W PSU although that depends a lot on what cards you decide to use. Titanium and Platinum 80 Plus certified PSU models may have the spotlight on them since they offer the best electrical efficiency money can buy currently but that also means you can find 80 Plus Gold certified models for much less. The Aurum Pro 1200W by FSP is not amongst the newest models in the market since it has been around for roughly 3 years now but because we recently gave one away and many of you asked for it today we're going to take a closer look and see how it performs.

Raidmax Vampire RX-1000GH 1000W Power Supply Unit Review
     Sun, Jul 26 2015 | 4:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Compared to even just 10 years ago the market today is literally overflowing with PC hardware components and peripherals suitable both for regular consumers (gamers, overclockers, enthusiasts and casual users) and professionals (enterprise users included). Unfortunately due to their target audience high-end components are not always affordable by everyone and that goes double for power supplies since they are considered to be the heart of every PC. We have seen several "affordable" high-end models in the past by many manufacturers but in the end there's always room for more such products aimed at people on a tight budget. Raidmax is mostly known for their towers but they've also ventured into the PSU market and today we're going to test their latest Vampire RX-1000GH 1000W PSU to see whether or not this was the right move by them.

Corsair RMi Series RM650i Fully-Modular Power Supply Review
     Sat, Jul 18 2015 | 12:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair is one of the biggest names in the industry, covering a wide range of products from chassis, peripherals, cooling, audio and more importantly today, power supplies. Their latest range of PSUs promises to deliver some impressive performance figures and we’ve got two of their new RMi series products on our test bench and ready to rock. First up, we have the 650 watt unit, which to some may not sound like a lot of power, but from my experience, few systems pull more than 500 watts even at full load, so there’s no doubt in my mind that this unit is the one aimed at mid to high-end gaming systems and day-to-day users.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
