Rosewill Tachyon 750W Modular Power Supply - BCCHardware
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 1:45A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our test system never even made this sweat until we added an extra load on this unit. As it stands, the Tachyon 750W unit is solid enough to run most hardware without any issues. To stress out the 12v line, we plugged in a heavy 12v load and watched the power draw climb. It pushes out a lot of watts and has proven to be solid, stable and run quite cool. . ."

In Win Commander III 700 W Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Feb 14 2013 | 5:12P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Commander III power supply series from In Win, also known as Desert Fox, has 600 W, 700 W, and 800 W models, all with the 80 Plus Gold certification and a modular cabling system. Let`s take an in-depth look at the 700 W version."

XFX PRO 850 W Black Edition Full Modular Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Feb 14 2013 | 9:22A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
XFX recently released a new series of power supplies with the 80 Plus Gold certification and a fully modular cabling system, with 750 W, 850 W, 1,050 W, and 1,250 W versions, dubbed the PRO Black Edition Full Modular. Be aware that the name PRO Black Edition has already been used by XFX for an 80 Plus Bronze power supply series, and the new series has the Full Modular words added to its name. (The new models have the letters BEF added at the end of their part numbers.) Wouldn`t it be simpler to just use a different name? Anyway, we`ve already reviewed the 750 W model, which proved to be an outstanding unit. Let`s see if the 850 W version also deserves our recommendation."

PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 850-Watt 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Review

PC Power & Cooling`s Silencer MK III series has been missing something for power users. Find out how well the new 850W model fills the void."

Corsair AX760 PSU review
     Tue, Feb 12 2013 | 11:50A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the Corsair AX760 PSU. This 760 Watt Power Supply is grand in performance, the one massive 12-volts says it all really. Excellent for multi-GPU solutions and hardcore overclockers. Being the more `regular` non AXi model these power supplies are a bit more affordable, yet remain high quality and high performance and Platinum rated. I also now have the 760W and 860W versions of the new AX power supplies (the non-digital models). These are actually based on Seasonic platforms, and so are completely different PSUs to the AXi models, though they are still 80 Plus Platinum and fully-modular. The 760W is also fanless to 70% load (the 860W to 60%) at 25C ambient, which is pretty impressive."

FSP Raider 550w Review - XSReviews
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 5:12P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A lot of companies are in the PSU game, which is why it`s important to make sure the one you`re buying is a good one. Or at least, one that won`t damage your system. Because that can happen with a cheap unit and while here at XSR we might not have all the fancy testing facilities of the bigger boys, we can make sure that yours won`t overload your components at the first opportunity. So today I`m looking at the FSP Raider, the 550w baby version. Let`s throw it into our test setup and see how it gets on. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Aerocool GT-SG 700 W @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 11:04A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aerocool enters the high-end PSU market with their fresh GT-SG PSU series. It offers great looks, Gold efficiency, modular cables, and quiet operation. In this review, we will take a detailed look at the GT-SG unit with a capacity of 700 W - Aerocool`s medium capactiy member of the series."

REVIEW: Cougar GX-S 600W@ PureOverclock
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 9:14A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While premium kilowatt power supplies may garner much of the attention and buzz in the marketplace, it is the more affordable, mid-range units that quietly bring in the profits. And that`s where the Cougar GX-S 600W might offer a solution. While this unit isn`t a behemoth like some we`ve seen of late, the GX-S 600W is 80PLUS Gold certified and comes with a price of $119. Seems pretty good so far, so let`s take a closer look at this Cougar power supply and see how it fares."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Rosewill Tachyon 1000 Watt 80PLUS Platinum ATX Modular Power Supply Review
     Thu, Feb 07 2013 | 10:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Power supply manufacturers are really focusing on 80Plus efficiency standards versus max wattage. And, it seems that many of them are paying closer attention to what we the consumers want. For example, we recently tested one of Rosewills strategically focused 750 watt Fortress Platinum power supplies and found that the OEM, ATNG, manufactures decently efficient units for them. While the price conscious unit takes care of them, the Tachyon 1000 Platinum modular PSU caters to a more demanding enthusiast. Lets take a look to see if the Tachyon 1Kw plant offers what is needed and whether or not it has the heart to keep up with todays top end systems. *"

LEPA G1000-MA 1000 Watt Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 12:50P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The LEPA G1000-MA 1000W power supply is 80 Plus Gold rated, meeting the strict standards for efficiency. The cooling system of the LEPA G1000 features a honeycomb mesh and a 135mm variable speed ball bearing fan to keep the PSU cool while maintaining low noise levels. Four independent 12V rails are provided, each with a max of 30A load, for compatibility with high end CPUs and GPUs. The G1000 has a semi modular cabling design. Hard wired cabling is present for the motherboard, CPU, and (2) 6+2 pin PCI-E cables. Modular cables are available to be used for additional PCI-E connections and storage/accessory connections. LEPA has designed modern protection circuits into the PSU as well, with Over Power, Over Current, Over Voltage, Under Voltage, Over Temperature, and short-circuit protection."

Rosewill Tachyon 650W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The overall performance of the Tachyon 650W power supply is very good. We could even dare saying that it was much better than we initially expected, considering that Rosewill is an infant when it comes to high performance products aiming towards hardcore enthusiasts. Nevertheless, the Tachyon 650W unit displayed excellent electrical performance, maintaining a tight voltage regulation and offering very good ripple suppression. Furthermore, the efficiency of the Tachyon 650W does meet the 80Plus Platinum certification levels just like Rosewill advertises, even if only barely..."

SilverStone PP06B Individual-Sleeved PSU Cables Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If this last route seems the best avenue for you and if you already own a SilverStone power supply that was manufacturer after 2009, they have some for you to look at. SilverStone has gone the route similar to Corsair and is offering sleeved cables. For a few weeks only black were available but red and white have recently showed up on their site. So, it is some to clean of the interior of one of our test rigs."

SilverStone Strider Plus ST60F-PS 600 W @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone has a rich portfolio of PSU products, which became even richer with the addition of the Strider Plus 600 W unit: one of the shortest ATX PSUs available on the market. This one exploits a fully modular design, which greatly simplifies the installation process, something many users will appreciate."

[Affiliates News] PC Power & Cooling Silencer M k III 1200W Review @ APH
     Fri, Feb 01 2013 | 9:44A | Power Supply | PermaLink

Up to 600W fanless? That`s the PCP&C Silencer Mk III 1200W. Let`s see if it is any good."

REVIEW: Thermaltake Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W@ PureOverclock
     Fri, Feb 01 2013 | 1:17A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of late we`ve started seeing a few more 80Plus Platinum certified power supplies, and today we`re looking at one from Thermaltake: the Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W. It has a rather stealthy aesthetic, but good looks and nice features will only get you so far though, as performance is what matters in the end. Coming with a price tag of $290, the Thermaltake Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W certainly brings a premium price tag, but does it have the top performance to match? Let`s find out."

EVGA SuperNova NEX 1500W Classified review: a beast of a PSU
     Thu, Jan 31 2013 | 3:13P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EVGA SuperNova NEX1500W Classified is a beast. It's clearly aimed at overclockers that need as much power as possible for their high-end components. That is why EVGA focused on power and stability, and sacrificed a little in the area of noise production. Strong qualities of this PSU are its voltages, ripple, efficiency, extra software and its looks. Drawbacks consist of the noise and also the usage without load.
