Thermaltake ToughPower Grand Platinum 850W Power Supply
     Wed, Nov 04 2015 | 12:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Leaving out computers and gadgets studying about airplanes and more specifically jet fighters has always been one of my hobbies. I never did try to enter the air force of my country especially since even up until today it doesn't use any of the airplane models I’d love to learn how to fly with but that hasn't stopped me from visiting various joint exhibitions abroad to check them out up close and personal. Roughly two months ago i managed to attend one such show and although i didn't get the chance to approach the new models i went there for i did talk to some engineers about the long history of the those two legendary fighter lines that got updated recently. What surprised me and is also why I’m even mentioning this was the amount of research and weight engineers give to the engines used in those aircraft since they consider those to be their heart. Likewise I’ve always believed that the heart of a computer system is the power supply unit so as soon as i came back i started working on the latest model by Thermaltake the ToughPower Grand Platinum 850W.

Chieftec SFX 500GD-C 500w Power Supply Review
     Mon, Nov 02 2015 | 1:14P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Compact systems are becoming increasingly popular, with many chassis now being so small, that they no longer support the common ATX PSU standard. This is where smaller form factor power supplies, such as the Chieftec SFX 500GD-C we have on the test bench today, come into play. The smaller form factor makes them perfect for compact system builds and with 500W of power on offer, this tiny PSU still has more than enough juice to power a decent gaming system, making it a prime choice for those building a small LAN gaming system, HTPC style gaming system, or even just those who have limited room for a desktop rig/workstation.

Smart DPS G 600W/650W/700W/750W
     Fri, Oct 30 2015 | 4:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake is expanding their Digital Power Supply (DPS) lineup with the introduction of the new Toughpower DPS G Series, which includes six models ranging from 450W up to 1050W. We will be taking a detailed look at the Toughpower DPS G 850W PSU in this review. Note: the new DPS G Series is a new line and is different than the Toughpower DPS 750W/850W/1050W models, which use the basic DPS App software. All DPS G Series power supplies support Thermaltakes new comprehensive suite of Smart Power Management (SPM) software. Thermaltake has also introduced four DPS G power supplies in their Smart Series, the Smart DPS G 600W/650W/700W/750W

Antec HCP Platinum Continuous Power 1000W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Oct 11 2015 | 12:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec have produced some extremely popular power supplies over the years, such as their very reliable PGS series, many of which I’ve owned and used myself over the years. For those with demanding systems, such as test benches, rendering systems and gaming rigs, their HCP Continuous Power units are a popular choice, so we’ve been eager to get one onto our test bench and see how good they really are!

RM Series of PC power supplies
     Tue, Oct 06 2015 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overall, the new RM850x proved to be an excellent power supply (great performance, high efficiency, and quiet operation). And Corsair was able to lower the price $10 (as compared with the RMi Series) by eliminating the Corsair Link interface. It’s really hard to find anything to complain about; but when pushed I would prefer to see some dedicated PCI-E cables supplying a single connector instead of having two connectors on the end of each PCI-E cable."

Corsair RM1000x and RM750x Review

CoolerMaster V750W Fully Modulated 80+ Gold PSU
     Tue, Sep 29 2015 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When building a PC some will debate the PSU (Power supply) as the most essential component, warranting a thorough analysis of the available choices. Choosing a well built PSU with a high efficiency rating, good solid construction / internals, and enough power headroom to cover your future upgrade plans means you could potentially not have to think about spending money on a PSU for years, or even not have to spend money buying one on your next build. Still running that non modulated PSU from a few years back or that came with your pre-built PC? (If you were unfortunate enough to buy a pre-built PC that is) It’s most likely time for an upgrade.

"I’ve reviewed a lot of portable power banks or portable batteries and most are the same, but some are different like the one I today which is solar powered, or it can be powered by the sun. There are many of these out there and this one works just like all the others. The Treqkr50 is a 5000mAh power bank with a secondary solar panel built-in so in an emergency you can power your phone by the sun. It works fine, read on to learn more… "

Cooler Master V750 Modular Power Supply Review
     Mon, Sep 28 2015 | 1:52P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master is one of most recognisable and well-respected names in the PC component market. Over the years, Cooler Master has created some of the best power supplies, coolers and chassis around, not forgetting their gaming division CM Storm, which has delivered some very impressive headsets, keyboards, mice and much more too! With all that in mind, I am very excited to see another Cooler Master product in the office today, their brand new V750 power supply, which promises premium performance in a tidy and compact form factor.
