Super Flower Leadex Gold 650W Review
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 2:18A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we have been focusing recently on super high power output supplies in excess of 1000 watts, we felt today it was worth revisiting a popular unit sold by Overclockers UK for £85.99 inc vat. The Super Flower Leadex Gold 650W is fully modular with 80 Plus Gold Certification and support for two high end graphics cards – ideal for those building a new SLI or Crossfire system with a budget under £100.

500-550 watt power supplies review: 40 models tested
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 11:18P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: After testing 40 power supplies, we can only draw two simple conclusions: 1. do not purchase exceptionally cheap power supplies; 2. the established brands do not offer bad power supplies in this segment. Codegen's and MS-Tech's offerings will generally only be purchased by system builders who are looking to earn a quick buck while building a cheap computer; individuals who purchase them to save a few tenners will only end up hurting themselves in the long run. Assuming they won't simply suffer a premature death, they'll likely result in unpredictable problems and a noticeably higher energy bill, and they're noisy to boot! You should therefore spend a little extra, but there's no need to overdo it.

Be Quiet! Straight Power 10 800W Power Supply Unit Review
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 4:18P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I recall a time long ago when you would walk into a computer store and the only power supply units you'd find were low-cost OEM models which surprisingly enough would last long if you were lucky. Fast forward to today and if you visit a computer store chances are that you will find yourself in front of a wall of power supply units from a very large number of manufacturers, with power outputs ranging anywhere from 250W and up to 1500W and various 80 plus efficiency certifications. Low-cost OEM models do exist even today aimed towards casual users who don't wish to spend much on one such device but today you can also find models that cost even more than a brand new laptop. Today with us however we have something more affordable and more specifically the latest offering by our friends over at be quiet! the Straight Power 10 800W power supply unit.

EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 1300W Power Supply Review
     Mon, Dec 29 2014 | 2:18A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA has a bit of a rocky road with HardOCP when it comes to PSU reviews. Today we give EVGA the opportunity to redeem itself with its 1300 watt powerhouse touting "exceptional efficiency" and a fully modular design that is "silent and optimized for the enthusiast." All this with a 10 year warranty? It must be a badass.

Seasonic X-Series 1250W Power Supply
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 7:18A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seasonic have had an active couple of months – in May we reviewed their Platinum 1,200W Modular PSU and today we are looking at the new X-Series 1250W – a refresh on the older model which we looked at, way back in 2012. The new model is a pure modular design with 80 Plus Gold Certification, but it has received a handful of upgrades since the original launch. Is it worth shortlisting for an upgrade in 2014?

Corsair RM Series 1000 W
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 2:50A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair's RM series includes some of the quietest PSUs available on the market. Today, we take a detailed look at the strongest member of this series, the RM1000. It promises good performance and ultra-silent operation, a rare feature for a 1 kW unit.

SilverStone SFX SX600-G 600W Power Supply Review
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 2:18A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With many people looking for a smaller enthusiast computer system footprint, the size of a power supply gets very important. With SFF motherboards getting better for overclocking, many folks are looking for higher PSU powers for overclocking. SilverStone brings an SFX form factor 600 watt capable pint-sized PSU.

TRENDnet TPL-407E2K Powerline 500 AV Adapter Starter
     Sun, Dec 21 2014 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"TRENDnet is a name that is known within the networking industry, though most regular consumers I imagine probably haven't heard of them like some of the other bigger networking names. TRENDnet has a 24-year history in creating and offering network solutions with great value along with performance.

SilverStone SX600-G SFX 600W Power Supply Review
     Fri, Dec 19 2014 | 4:49A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the overall build quality and performance are good, the SX600-G doesnt stand out in any particular area (other than size!) when compared to other enthusiast-grade 600W ATX power supplies. It normally would not bring home a PCPerspective Gold Award (especially with a 3-year warranty) except that the SX600-G is unique and occupies a very specific niche market. We have enjoyed our time with the SX600-G and have come to appreciate the advantages of a relatively high power small form factor PSU for use in compact, cramped chassis; even when they are designed to accommodate a full size ATX PSU. The SX600-G does an excellent job of delivering on its design goals and deserves to be recognized."

EVGA SuperNOVA P2 1600 Supply Review
     Fri, Dec 12 2014 | 7:07P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We aren’t messing around today. Up for analysis is the latest flagship power supply from enthusiast favourite EVGA. Their new SuperNova 1600 P2 Power supply is a monster product designed for power crazy SLI and Crossfire systems. It is 80 Plus Platinum certified, fully modular, and incorporates the highest grade Japanese capacitors inside. The EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 P2 is designed to deliver a staggering 1600 watts – which for 90% of our audience, will be completely overkill. This is not for the faint of heart, as the £275.99 inc vat asking price will testify.

Thermaltake Toughpower DPS G 850W
     Fri, Dec 12 2014 | 7:07P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We have seen digital power supplies for a while now from many different manufacturers. Today we have Thermaltake’s latest in their Toughpower DPS G 850W unit. This unit features a sleek design, 80PLUS Gold efficiency rating, 140 mm cooling fan and a fully modular design with flat cables. On top of all of that you can plug this power supply into your motherboard (via USB) and with Thermaltake’s DPSApp you can easily monitor stats, calculate cost, change fan speeds and more. Is this power supply perfect for your next build? Read on as we find out."

EVGA SuperNova 1600 P2 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply Review
     Thu, Dec 11 2014 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With their largest power output unit to date, EVGA has also reached 80PLUS Platinum certification with their SuperNova 1600 P2. The SuperNova 1600 P2 is the current flagship in EVGA’s outstanding new lineup, and one glance shows many common traits with the balance of the line. The 1600 P2 uses the same outer shell styling we have seen in the SuperNova line, along with the same outstanding modular cable system."

Chieftec Navitas 650W GPM-650C Review @ ocaholic
     Mon, Dec 08 2014 | 11:27A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Navitas 650W Chieftec has a high quality mid range power supply in its portfolio which offers 650 Watt output power. When looking for an 80Plus certificate we find a Gold 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 92.90 Euro PSU is capable of."

XFX XTS Series 1000 W @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Dec 06 2014 | 2:43P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
XFX teamed with Seasonic to introduce the new XTS line of PSUs. In this review, we will test the flagship of the series with 1 kW capacity, Platinum efficiency, a fully modular cabling design and hybrid-fan-mode operation for as little noise output as possible at light loads."

Seasonic X Series XM2 1050 W
     Fri, Dec 05 2014 | 4:42P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We had the chance to evaluate many Seasonic products within the last couple months. Today, we will take a look at their 1050 W Gold-certified X series unit. Like its big brother, the X-1250 XM2 we tested recently, we expect it to perform incredibly well.

Seasonic Platinum Series 1050 W @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Nov 29 2014 | 5:18P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We evaluated the flagship Seasonic unit SS-1200XP3 some time ago. In this review, we will check on the second-strongest model of the series with 1050 W capacity, the SS-1050XP3. It comes with the same features - Platinum efficiency and a fully modular design, for instance. Like its big brother, it also delivers top-notch performance."

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.
