Antec HCP-850 850W Power Supply Review
     Sat, Aug 02 2014 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The recent appearance of 80 Plus Titanium certified power supply units (although not really that many in number) has finally forced manufacturers to perform price cuts on their Platinum and Gold certified models so it's not really a surprise that lately some of you have asked us to also focus our reviews on the best Platinum models currently in the market (we would had done so either way eventually). A few months back we had the latest HCP-1300 (High Current Pro Platinum 1300W) power supply unit by Antec on our test bench and as some of you may recall it was without doubt one of the best units to ever pass from our lab (not to mention one of the most highest output ones to date). Since the HCP-1300 isn't however the only model in the High Current Pro Platinum line by Antec we decided to also test its two smaller brothers and so today we will start with the lowest output model the HCP-850 850W PSU.

Silverstone Nightjar 520 W @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone has been offering fanless PSUs for quite some time; however, they hadnt released a relevant product for some years now, which changed recently as their Nightjar fanless series now includes the NJ520 with Platinum efficiency, a fully modular cabling design, and a promise of total silence."

Rosewill Capstone Modular 1000 W @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Aug 01 2014 | 6:07A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill built up a solid reputation over the last few years, especially for PSUs, where things are tough because of the strong competition. In this review, we will evaluate the Capstone series` flagship model. It features 1 kW capacity, a semi-modular design, and a nice price tag. Our expectations are high because the unit is based on a Super Flower platform."

MSI Z97 MPower Max AC Preview
     Tue, Jul 29 2014 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Z97 MPower Max AC, MSI has a rather interesting motherboard in its portfolio, since there are features relevant for overclockers as well as gamers. For overclockers there is for example a 20 phase power design and gamers will love the beefed-up audio as well as quite a bunch of other features.

be quiet! TFX Power 2 300W Gold review
     Mon, Jul 28 2014 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We don’t often need a 1500 watt power supply – actually most of our systems are probably consuming less than 300 watts under load. What if you are building a new mini or media system into a tiny, space restricted chassis and need some quality juice to power it? Today we look at something totally different from be quiet! – the TFX Power 2 300W power supply, designed for systems with low installation depth.

BitFenix Fury 550G Alchemy-Sleeved Power Supply Preview
     Thu, Jul 24 2014 | 8:29A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year the BitFenix Fury PSU Series was introduced, and quickly gained interest among desktop system builders looking to benefit from the power supply?s individually-sleeved modular cables and 80 PLUS GOLD energy efficiency certification. Builders wanting to manage cables now have the option to choose the connections they need, then cleanly route the sleeved wires through smaller spaces. In this product spotlight, Benchmark Reviews covers the new BitFenix Fury PSU series."

Thermaltake ToughPower Grand TPG-0750M 750W Power Supply Unit Review
     Sat, Jul 19 2014 | 7:45P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whenever my road brings me close to an electronics store i almost always go inside not only because i want to see if there`s something new in the market that I?ve missed but also because i enjoy listening (curiosity i guess) to what consumers ask from the sales people. That of course has led me to realize that not all sales people have the necessary knowledge needed in order to guide consumers to the right choice (not their fault really, not in the times we live in). For example just two weeks ago i overheard a sales person recommend a 600W PSU to someone who had just bought a brand new MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 for his Core i7 system. True an 600W can easily handle that card (since it has a max power consumption of less than 300W) but the total power draw of the system obviously depends on the rest of the components so when the only thing you know is that the consumer owns an Intel Core i7 4790 then you shouldn`t take any chances. In the end it seems that the consumer knew his way a lot better than the sales person so he left with an 750W power supply unit instead a model by Thermaltake which coincidentally i had yet to get my hands on. Today we`ll be taking a look at the new ToughPower Grand TPG-0750M (or ToughPower Grand Gold Fully Modular as some call it) by Thermaltake which finally found its way over."

BitFenix Fury 650G Power Supply Review
     Fri, Jul 18 2014 | 1:35P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“BitFenix opted to take the road less traveled with their first-ever power supply. They took a solid, stable 80 Plus Gold certified platform using all Japanese top shelf capacitors, then sleeved every single cable for you right out of the box. The name is somehow ironic to us, as they call it the BitFenix Fury, yet this power supply is poised to be anything BUT infuriating. Having well sleeved cables with a myriad of connector options and varying wattage ratings for your individual computing needs, could this be part of your next build?”

Thermaltake Smart SP-850M 850W Power Supply Review
     Wed, Jul 16 2014 | 4:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake has been hit and miss in the power supply department over the years. It has produced some excellent PSUs and some that were just "good," and others that did not meet ATX12V specification. Thermaltake comes to us today with its Smart Series PSU that touts Bronze efficiency with its semi-modular design.

Raidmax Horus MX Micro ATX Tower Review
     Sun, Jul 13 2014 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Largely thanks to the somewhat recent technological advancements people can now experience the features and performance only found in full sized ATX/EATX/XL-ATX mainboards up until today with the much smaller mITX and mATX ones. None of us here are much into such solutions since we prefer to use full towers for a number of reasons but we also can't deny that for people who want a system that doesn't take much space such mainboards are the obvious choice. Now in the past when people chose such a mainboard they normally paired it with a relatively small HTPC case in order to save both space and money but nowadays with many people pairing such mainboards with long high-end graphics cards (even mGPU ones) getting a small HTPC case is really not the way to go. Raidmax however decided to take things a bit further with their brand new Horus MX Water Cooling Gaming Micro ATX tower which we have here with us today.

SilverStone Nightjar 520W Fanless Power Supply Review
     Sun, Jul 13 2014 | 8:59A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SilverStone Nightjar SST-NJ520 fanless power supply occupies a niche market and is targeted towards users who want a silent power supply for use in noise-sensitive areas such as a recording studio or science lab. The NJ520 easily delivered 520W combined DC load with outstanding voltage regulation and excellent AC ripple suppression, even at full load. The Nightjar 520W PSU meets the requirements for 80Plus Platinum efficiencies, even while operating on 115 VAC at elevated, real-world temperatures. The component selection and build quality is excellent (as we have come to expect from Seasonic, the OEM for the NJ520). Our only minor complaint is with the 3-year warranty that SilverStone offers with most of their PSUs the NJ520 deserves better."

Deepcool Quanta DQ1250 1250 W @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Jul 12 2014 | 8:59A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Another high-end Platinum PSU, this time by Deepcool, the DQ Series 1250 W unit uses a high-end platform with incredible performance, Platinum efficiency, and low noise output. Especially the latter is something not often seen in such a strong PSU, so stay tuned if you want to learn more about this product."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
