Seasonic S12G-Series: S12G-550 Power Supply Review
     Wed, Feb 19 2014 | 9:25A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seasonic builds some of the best computer power supplies on the market. When do we ever get a power supply that is actually a better product than what it is marketed to be? Not often, but that is the case with the S12G-550 PSU. It is not terribly inexpensive, but it is a great value for your hard earned dollars.

NZXT HALE82 V2 550W Power Supply Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Feb 17 2014 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to building a PC the power supply is something that is often overlooked and really at the bottom of the component list. Many people want a quality power supply that is feature rich, but do not want to pay the premium cost. This is where NZXT comes in with the HALE82 V2 power supply. Their main goal with this power supply is to bring consumers a high performance, feature-rich power supply without the premium price tag. Today we are taking a look at the 550W version that features a fully modular design, 80PLUS Bronze certification, 135mm silent fan, and a single +12V rail. Is this the power supply for your next build? Read on as we find out."

Antec HCP-1300 1300W Power Supply Unit
     Wed, Feb 12 2014 | 9:48A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Much like everything else in this world power supply units come in many types, outputs and sizes but the quality of components is perhaps the one thing they all have in common so regardless everything else owning a high quality PSU should always be on top of your list. However what many people fail to realize is that the 80 Plus certification is not just a marketing gimmick since at least in most cases (we haven`t had the chance to test every single PSU in the market) it goes hand to hand with the quality of components used so a bronze certified model will obviously be less durable than a platinum certified one (performance is another story but generally the same applies there too). Antec has been manufacturing power supply units for as long as i can remember but although they have quite a few 80 Plus Platinum certified units in their product line aside the very good HCP-1000 they haven`t focused in high output models. This has changed with the latest HCP-1300 (High Current Pro) 1300W 80 Plus Platinum PSU which strangely we are amongst the very first to have on our test bench."

Antec EarthWatts Platinum 650W Non-Modular Power Supply Review
     Mon, Feb 10 2014 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Power efficiency is a significant consideration for any system that is running frequently – a home server, mining system, a workstation or any other system that gets close to 24/7 usage is a prime candidate for a high efficiency power supply. With the need to cut electricity related carbon emissions, and consume less electricity in the wake of rising electricity prices, the time to get an efficient power supply is now – particularly if you are upgrading from an old unbranded power supply that lacks any form of certifications or efficiency standards. The 80 Plus standard has been around for a while to ensure that customers know what they are getting in terms of efficiency. At the top end of this efficiency standard is 80 Plus Platinum which promises 90/90, 92/94 and 89/91% efficiency at 20%, 50% and 100% loads on 115/230V circuits respectively. Antec’s EarthWatts Platinum series is designed specifically to meet those certifications and offer consumers affordable 80 Plus Platinum power supplies in a range of sensible wattages. We’ve already reviewed Antec’s 450W EarthWatts Platinum power supply and today we are moving on to the 650W variant. With the EarthWatts Platinum 650W power supply Antec are seeking to capture some of the higher end market – 650W is more than enough for a dual GPU system. Like other power supplies in this same series this unit is made by FSP, is non-modular and is backed by a three year warranty. Of course there is more to a power supply than just efficiency so let’s move onto having a look at this power supply and see how it performs.

Corsair CS Series Modular 650W Power Supply Review
     Wed, Jan 29 2014 | 6:26A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CS Modular Series adds yet another new tier to Corsairs already formidable PC power supply offering. The CS650M test unit produced very good DC load regulation with very good efficiency (easily met 80Plus Gold certification criteria) across a full range of loads. And the unit was able to keep AC ripple and noise well under control, even at full load. The CS650M comes with a good assortment of fixed and flat ribbon-style cables. The main 24-pin ATX, 4+4-pin ATX/EPS, and PCI-E connector cables are nice and long (25-29). The only minor issues we could find to complain about are the 3-year warranty and use of a sleeve bearing fan."

Silverstone Strider Gold S Series 850W
     Sat, Jan 25 2014 | 4:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Silverstone is here to tell you that size doesn’t mean everything, and that you can have your cake and eat it, too. Enter their Strider Gold S series power supplies, which are labeled as not only the world’s smallest ATX power supplies, but are also rated to supply as much as 850W of peak output power. For today’s review, we have their top dog on hand: rated at 80 Plus Gold certification and being fully modular with a silent operating 120mm fan and 850W of total power output, we’ll see if this PSU lives up to Silverstone’s legendary quality. We will also be taking a quick look at their new line of PP07 braided cable extensions for those of you who are simply not satisfied with plain looking cables, but lack the skill/time/patience to do your own custom braiding.”

Lepa G Series 850W
     Sat, Jan 25 2014 | 4:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we’re looking at a unit from Lepa, specifically the G Series 850W power supply, which comes with a partly modular design, flat cables, and 80Plus Gold certification. With a solid feature set and the ability to run a couple of high-end graphics cards, the Lepa G Series 850W looks like a promising power supply. Lepa is the sister company to Enermax, a company which is known to make some of the best power supplies on the market, though interestingly they are not the OEM on this particular unit. So, can this non-Enermax Lepa unit measure up? Let’s take a closer look and find out.”

XTPower MP-23000A 23000mAh Ultra-High Capacity External Power Supply Battery Pack
     Fri, Jan 24 2014 | 4:58P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are counting only a few hours until Christmas so as Im sure all of you can understand writing a review at this time is not exactly easy for me, however it`s not every day that we receive a unique product to review and since we will be hitting the mountain to spend new years eve we feel that this can come in handy to you as it will to us. A few days ago we reviewed the Patriot FUEL+ 7800mAh Mobile Rechargeable Battery which left us with the best impressions thanks to its design, size and real battery capacity. However although 7800mAh and even 9000mAh (capacity of its larger brother) are more than just enough for use with smartphones, MP3/4 players and small tablets they are simply not enough for people who happen to own large screen tablets and this is where XT Power comes in with their latest and quite massive MP-23000A 23000mAh Ultra-High Capacity External Power Supply Battery Pack."

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.
