NZXT HALE82 850W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" When building your own PC one of the most important components is the power supply. If you skimp on this item your machine can literally go down in flames; thus quality and reliability are paramount in choosing a power supply unit (PSU). NZXT, known for their high quality PC cases are now offering high-end power supplies to pair up with their cases. One of their latest models is the HALE82 850W modular power supply designed for power-hungry PCs."

SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 850-watt (ST85F-G) PSU Review
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 12:20P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ST85F-G Evolution shares the same feature summary as the rest of the Evolution series. It has full of protection features including over temperature protection, but the unit is not rated for 100% continuous output at 50C. It is instead rated for 100% continuous output at 40C. The power supply is fully modular and fully sleeved. The full modular design also allows for the use of SilverStone`s PP05 short cable kit. Antares Pro comes in with the cheapest price of $168.99. Alternatively you can find the unit for $169.99 at Directron. Hardcore Newegg fans will find the unit a tad more expensive, costing $195.82 after shipping. At about $170, the ST85F-G Evolution is one of the cheapest 80Plus Gold rated 850W models available. SilverStone backs the unit by a three year warranty."

Antec VP350 Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:25P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Basiq power supply series from Antec is targeted to users with serious budget restrictions. The new VP350 and VP450 models are the most entry-level power supplies offered by Antec, as they don`t have a PFC circuit or 80 Plus certification. We`ve already reviewed the VP450, which achieved terrific performance for its class. Now it is time for us to test the 350 W model."

Kingwin Lazer Platinum LZP-1000 1000-watt Power Supply Review
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:10P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingwin makes sure you`re taken care of with plenty of features in the LZP-1000. All your protections are present. The LZP-1000 has both native and modular cabling, all of which is fully sleeved. The LZP-1000 is also capable of delivering 100% continuous output at 50C. Kingwin has an MSRP of $229 on the LZP-1000 1000W unit. We were able to find it cheapest at Newegg for $193.98 at the time of writing this article after shipping and a $20 MIR. That makes it at least $50 cheaper than any other 1000W Platinum unit on the market today. Kingwin backs the LZP-1000 with their customary five year warranty."

Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1000W PSU review
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 9:29A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Silent Pro M2 line of power supplies come with modular cabling, a 135mm hydraulic dynamic bearing fan, copper-aluminium heatsink, single +12V rail and dual-layer EMI filter. Today we focus on the kilowatt model priced 169.90 EUR. A very nice power supply rates 80+ silver, that comes with a modular design and one big massive whopping 12V rail, which we all like so very much. In fact that translates to 80A / 12V on our 1000W model. Part of the new spec is RoHS and ERP 2010 Certification for a more eco-friendly design and power efficiency. The 135mm fan has been improved by making use of a durable Hydraulic Dynamic Bearing. Read the review right here"

OCZ ZT 650W power supply review

Posted by: STAFF
OCZ releases the ZT model in a three fold of models, a 550W model priced at 55 EUR, a 650 model priced at 75 EUR and a 750W model priced at 90 EUR (USD conversion is roughly similar at the moment).

Antec VP550P 550W PSU Review
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec have recently released a new range of lower end basic modal power supplies so they are not just targeting high end gamers anymore, but the “average Joe”. The VP550P is a brilliant little model that you might want to think about getting your hands on if you possibly have a small HTCP system running. With a top processor and a highly respectable graphics card the VP550P runs at very high efficiency levels on idle and load. The power supply runs at the same efficiency as a certified 80PLUS product. Brilliant for any “average Joe”. Take a look...

[DreamWare Computers] OCZ 750W ZT Power Supply
     Sun, Feb 26 2012 | 2:48P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During 2011 I reviewed both OCZ`s entry level power supply line, the ZS, and their high end line, the ZX. Although they did have a line in the middle, it was mostly composed of older, outdated models until recently. Looking to update their middle-end line, OCZ has now released the ZT. The ZT takes many of the great performance features seen on the lower end ZS and adds things like a modular cable design and improved cooling system. I have a 750W ZT on the bench here today to see just how it fares up!"

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.
