Corsair CS450M Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 9:19A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair has been a very active player in the PSU market the past year, announcing release after release, bringing several new power supply units into the market. A few weeks ago, the company has announced the release of the CS-M power supply series, a series designed for basic and midrange PCs, bringing the number of the power-related products that they offer even higher. Even though the series is designed with value in mind, Corsair claims features and performance that would significantly outperform their previous mainstream series, the TX. Today we are having a close look at the CS450M, which, as the name implies, is the 450 W version and the least powerful unit of the series."

Cougar CMX V.3 850W Power Supply Unit
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the things every single one of us likes about the computer industry in its entirety is that as time goes by once expensive enthusiast grade hardware eventually always becomes mainstream and I’m not only talking about old products. Take SSDs for example, 3-4 years ago only enthusiasts and professionals could afford them while now you can find incredibly fast models for as low as USD80/80Euros not to mention that most PC systems (desktop and notebook) come with at least one pre-installed. The same also applies for power supply units so although a while back you needed to invest quite a bit on a good model now you can find very good ones for a lot less. Cougar may not be one of the most well-known PSU manufacturers (still it’s a sister company to the very well-known HEC/Compucase brand) but in the somewhat short time they've been around their products have managed to secure many awards by media around the world and for good reason since they offer both performance and quality. Today’s review is about one of their latest PSUs to hit the market the CMX V.3 850W model.

Corsair AX1500i DSP-based power supply - CES 2014
     Tue, Jan 07 2014 | 1:21P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Corsair's AX1500i Digital ATX power supply utilizes digitally-controlled circuitry to deliver 1500 watts of ultra-stable power with efficiency that goes beyond 80 PLUS Platinum, making the AX1500i the most technologically advanced, energy efficient, and customizable power supply available for extreme PC enthusiasts. The AX1500i’s groundbreaking efficiency meets the current draft for ATX 115 Volt 80 PLUS "Titanium" for consumer PSUs.

The AX1500i's second generation digital architecture enables the PSU to consistently deliver up to 1500 watts of power with class-leading Titanium energy efficiency levels of up to 94%. The DSP-controlled circuitry of the PSU allows it to consistently deliver exceptionally stable voltages along with amazingly low ripple and noise. Tremendous power reserves combined with a vast array of cabling options enables the AX1500i to power heavily overclocked PC systems with up to four graphics cards in NVIDIA® SLI™ or AMD CrossFireX™ configurations with headroom to spare.

The AX1500’s leading performance is possible thanks to a streamlined component count and circuit-board layout made possible by the DSP-based design. The AX1500i’s high efficiency results in reduced heat, allowing the PSU to operate in silent Zero RPM Fan Mode until the load reaches 450 watts. A custom-designed fluid dynamic bearing 140mm fan, specifically designed for low-noise operation, allows the PSU to run quietly even when running at full 1500 watt power output.

"When we released the AX1200i, the world’s first digital ATX PSU, we defined the new standard for PSU performance, efficiency, and customization," said Aaron Neal, product manager of PSUs at Corsair. “Now with the AX1500i’s evolved digital architecture we’ve raised the bar again, creating the most efficient and technically advanced PSU available for the uncompromising PC enthusiast.”

AX1500i's DSP-based design, combined with Corsair Link™ technology, gives enthusiasts unprecedented control over the features and performance characteristics of their PSU. This includes real-time monitoring of temperature, current draw, and power efficiency, as well as the ability to adjust the speed of the internal 140mm fan. These features also allow for a unique level of customization, including the ability to set overcurrent protection points on a per-rail basis in the default multi-rail +12V configuration or simply switch to single +12V rail mode.

94% efficiency at 50% load at 115V
Includes 8 PCI-E cables for support for up to 4 GPUs
Native USB onboard for Corsair Link real-time monitoring and customization
100% Japanese capacitors
Custom-designed fluid dynamic bearing 140mm low-noise fan
Silent Zero RPM Fan Mode up to 450 watts and ultra-quiet operation at full 1500 watt output (26.5 dBa)
Dimension:  150mm x 86mm x 225mm 
 

The AX1500i Digital ATX Power Supply is backed by a 7-year warranty and will be available in Q2  from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors. The suggested US retail price is $449.99 USD.

Full details on the Corsair AX1500i Digital PSU, here.

Corsair at CES 2014 in Las Vegas
Corsair will be showcasing the AX1500i Digital PSU at CES 2014 in Las Vegas from January 7-10. The products will be shown by appointment only in Corsair’s press suite at the Venetian.

ST75F-GS 750W & ST85F-GS 850W models
     Fri, Jan 03 2014 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There are many PSUs in the Strider Gold series, but currently only 2 in the Gold S Series; the ST75F-GS 750W & ST85F-GS 850W models. Their main focus on PSUs recently have been on downsizing the enthusiasts PSUs. Note that these are the smallest fully modular ATX PSUs in their wattage class. This makes them compatible with all ATX cases, even SFF cases. The SilverStone Strider Gold S Series ST75F-GS Power Supply offers clean, quality power, it's 100% modular, comes with a quiet fan and is 80 Plus Gold certified." ~3dGameMan.com

Cooler Master GX II 650W
     Sun, Dec 29 2013 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“While the general trend has been higher energy consumption, there are many consumers that don’t need a high end kilowatt power supply. There is a considerable market for mid-range units to power a single graphics card setup, somewhere around 600W to 650W of power. The Cooler Master GX II 650W is one such mid-range power supply, and while it’s not a beast like one of Cooler Master’s premium V-Series units, for examples, the GX II is 80PLUS Bronze certified and comes with an affordable price tag of $80. Seems like a very enticing budget-oriented unit, so let’s take a closer look at this Cooler Master GX II 650W power supply and see how it fares.”

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.
