Thermaltake Toughpower DPS 750W Modular Power Supply Review
     Thu, Oct 23 2014 | 10:21P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The term “digital power supply” is rarely used in the power supply market at the moment; we have seen digital power supplies before (the Corsair AXi series springs to mind) but they still remain uncommon and unpopular due to their high price. Thermaltake are the latest power supply brand to venture into the digital power supply arena with their Toughpower DPS series units, of which we have their DPS 750W model in for testing today. On paper the DPS 750W is a direct rival to Corsair’s AX760i offering similarly strong efficiency, the same 7 year warranty, a fully modular design, quiet operation and digitally controlled voltage regulation. Thermaltake’s DPS 750W does benefit from a fairly unique piece of software that is bundled with the power supply but Corsair’s AX760i also has something similar in the form of Corsair Link. Thermaltake’s software allows you to monitor efficiency, voltages, watts, energy costs, the power supply temperature and control the fan speed.

be quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 850W Power
     Thu, Oct 23 2014 | 10:17P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This review is for the creme de la creme of the be quiet! Power supply series with an 80PLUS Platinum rating the Dark Power PRO 10 850 Watt PSU that is truly the best that the be quiet! company has to offer. It was commissioned to be made in the highly prestigious Seasonic power supply factory. One of the best power supply factories in the world. Other brands of the be quiet! line are commissioned by different fabricators and should not be compared with this product or this review as they are manufactured in other places and have a different sources and therefore may have different design tolerances and characteristics. This review is based solely on the be quiet! (BQT-P10-Unit) and they include the Dark Power Pro 10 series including the 1200 watt / 1000 watt and the 850 watt models that are all commissioned with the Seasonic manufacturing plant."

Chieftec Navitas 1250W GPM-1250C Review
     Thu, Oct 23 2014 | 7:11P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Navitas 1250W Chieftec has a high end power supply in its portfolio which offers 1250 Watt output power. When looking for an 80Plus certificate we find a platinum sticker on this unit. Since Chieftec doesn't own their own PSU factory, their using an OEM platform from CWT (Channel Well Technology) for this model. As usual we're curious to find out what this 169.90 Euro PSU is capable of.

Cooler Master V1200 Platinum 1200W Modular Power Supply Review
     Thu, Oct 23 2014 | 7:11P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Developing a power supply with a wattage as high as 1200W involves a lot of technical expertise; this is why you’ll find the number of OEMs producing power supplies at this wattage level is lower than in the sub 750W market. The market for 1200W power supplies is significantly smaller too with only a handful of desktop PC users needing this much wattage. Furthermore, the build quality and standards of high-wattage power supplies tend to be higher so users in this market segment will upgrade less: especially when 5, 7 and 10 year warranties are becoming the norm. Cooler Master know all of the aforementioned things which is why they teamed up with veteran power supply vendor Seasonic to produce theirPlatinum series V1200 unit. On paper this unit is as good as it gets with 80 Plus Platinum efficiency certification, a semi-passive fan operation mode, high quality Japanese capacitors, a fully modular design and a 7 year warranty. In terms of hardware support Cooler Master offer a staggering 12 PCIe connectors and dual EPS 8 pin connectors allowing you to easily run quad GPU systems or even dual CPU socket based motherboards such as the Haswell-EP Xeon platform from Intel.

Antec High Current Pro Platinum 850W Modular Power Supply Review
     Thu, Oct 23 2014 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you think of Antec power supplies Seasonic instantly come to mind as they’ve been the OEM producer of a significant chunk of Antec’s products. However, when it comes to Antec’s extremely high end “High Current Pro” (HCP) platinum series, they actually use Delta Electronics. This is fairly interesting because Delta Electronics haven’t really had a presence in the consumer market for quite some time, instead they’ve focused mainly on the enterprise and server power supply market where the big money is. Whatever deal Antec struck up they’ve done well to get their HCP series made by Delta Electronics, inevitably this means they will hold a significant premium but in return you quite literally get a server-class power supply in a consumer package. Today we are taking a look at Antec’s HCP 850 power supply which is a fully modular and 80 Plus Platinum rated power supply. Right off the bat you might be surprised with just how big Antec’s HCP 850 is but the reason for that is simple: all that performance and quality requires additional components over a standard consumer power supply. If the fact Delta Electronics make Antec’s HCG 850 wasn’t enough to convince you, then the 7 year warranty definitely should. Let’s take a look at Antec’s HCG 850 and see exactly how it fares in our review!

be quiet! Straight Power 10 700W Review
     Wed, Oct 22 2014 | 11:39P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“be quiet! has an established reputation in the power supply market for those living in Europe, but the company isn’t quite as well known in North America. Looking to make further inroads into North America, it’s targeting a fairly lucrative mid-range segment for the power supply market. The be quiet! Straight Power 10 700W features simple styling, a mostly-modular setup, an 80Plus Gold certification. Let’s take a closer look at this power supply from be quiet! and see if it can deliver the goods to a demanding consumer base.”

Deepcool DQ750 Quanta Semi-Modular Power Supply Review
     Fri, Oct 17 2014 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Deepcool have been making their presence felt in the PC DIY market increasingly more over the last year. They have made a push towards gaming and enthusiast market segments with new cooling solutions, cases and power supplies. Today we have one of Deepcool’s newest power supplies on the test bench: the Deepcool DQ750. As its name suggests, this is a 750 watt power supply and it is very much targeted at PC enthusiasts with 80 Plus Gold certification, a Blue LED fan and a modular design with flat black ribbon cables. Deepcool have opted for a semi-modular design but unlike some power supply vendors they have also ensured that the hard-wired cables conform to an all-black aesthetic just like the modular cables. Deepcool’s expansion into the power supply market for consumer buyers is certainly an interesting one and given that Deepcool have teamed up with Corsair’s preferred OEM Channel Well Technology we could see Deepcool competing for similar buyers with similar features. Let’s see what the DQ750 has to offer.

It was nigh time to test a small PSU with less than 500 W since such units are among the most popular. The smallest member of Enermax`s Revolution X`t line will be our test subject today. This small fellow comes with Gold-certified efficiency, a semi-modular cabling design, and, like every modern PSU, support for the sleep states Intels Haswell CPUs introduced."

Posted by: STAFF
The ETS-N30 from Enermax might not blow you away with top-tier performance, but its affordable price will certainly be easy on your wallet. It even offers up lower noise levels and better performance compared to the stock heatsink bundled with today's processors. If you want lower noise levels with a bit more cooling power, the ETS-N30 might be just what you need.

Silverstone Nightjar 520W Passive Modular Power Supply Review
     Mon, Oct 13 2014 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One thing that you learn reviewing power supplies is just how big Seasonic are. Seasonic platforms are used by multiple brands due to their exceptional quality, performance and reliability. Silverstone are one of those brands that use Seasonic platforms. In a case of déjà vu I am looking at another Seasonic Platinum rated 520 watt passive power supply. Firstly, I took a look at the XFX XTS 520, then Seasonic’s own Platinum 520 and now Silverstone’s Nightjar 520. The internals are identical to the aforementioned PSUs: we’ve still got 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, Seasonic’s promised +-2% voltage regulation, active PFC and a fully modular design. The best part is of course the passive operation and the “Nightjar” moniker of this Silverstone power supply is supposed to reflect that passive segmentation. To aid with the passive operation the Platinum efficiency is vital for minimising heat but the well ventilated enclosure is also important.
