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."

Thermaltake Toughpower DPS G 850W Power Supply Review @HiTech Legion
     Sat, Nov 29 2014 | 1:12P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gold rated Thermaltake Toughpower DPS G 850W Power supply, earns its gold rating by reaching the same high standards as an Olympic athlete with up to 91% efficiency. It features a fully modular flat cable design, offering the benefits of expandability, and easy cable routing, without the clutter of extra cables inside your computer case that you do not need. It has a large 140mm fan that can be run in two modes, silent and performance, adjusted through the DPS APP."

Antec Edge Series 650 W
     Sat, Nov 29 2014 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec recently released a fresh mid-capacity series for enthusiast users. The EDGE unit with 650 W will be evaluated today. All EDGE units use a fully modular cabling design and are 80 Plus Gold certified, and Seasonic is their OEM, so we expect great things from them.

High Power Astro GD 1200W Fully Modular Power Supply Review
     Mon, Nov 24 2014 | 10:35A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new High Power Astro Series GD-1200W power supply is currently available and shipping. The MSRP is $239.99 but you can currently find it at newegg.com for $224.99 USD (November 2014). This puts the Astro GD-1200W pretty much in the middle of the pack for value. You can find 1200W power supplies for less money and there are others available at a much higher cost. Its a tradeoff between cost and performance; you have to decide where your particular sweet spot lies. Last but not least, we arent thrilled with a 3-Year warranty; a good power supply deserves better."

be quiet! Straight Power 10 CM 800W Semi-Modular Power Supply Review
     Tue, Nov 18 2014 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today be quiet! are expanding their Straight Power series of power supplies with a new range of models. The Straight Power series already has 400W to 700W models under the Straight Power E9 label but now they are adding 400-800W models to the mix under a new Straight Power 10 series. We are looking more specifically at their Straight Power 10 800W CM power supply which, like many existing products in the Straight Power series, features modular cables, a Silent Wings PWM fan and 80 Plus Gold certification. Given the wattage of this model, it also has multi-GPU support making it ideal for Crossfire or SLI based systems. With this new launch be quiet! are continuing their tradition of using FSP as the main OEM as they’ve had a long and successful partnership with FSP who make great power supply internals and be quiet know how to finish the product off with high quality fans, useful features and sharp presentation.

be quiet! Straight Power 10 CM 600W Review
     Tue, Nov 18 2014 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
be quiet! have earned an excellent reputation over the years in the enthusiast sector by releasing a series of high grade fans, coolers and power supplies. Today we look at one of their latest power supplies – the Straight Power 10. This model replaces the best selling Straight Power E9 range and brings new enhancements including lower noise levels and improved voltage stability and regulation. Today we look at the 600 watt, 80 Plus Gold Certified model which features cable management.

be quiet! SFX Power 2 300W Power Supply Review
     Tue, Nov 18 2014 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When a compact ATX power supply just isn’t compact enough you have to think outside the box, or use a new form factor. The SFX and TFX form factors are two of the most common small form factor power supplies aside from the standard ATX that is so common in desktops. The SFX form factor measures in at 100×125×63.5 mm compared to TFX at 146×83×64mm. SFX is short and stubby while TFX is long and thin. In that sense TFX is more server orientated when server racks tend to be long and thin. Conversely SFX is more orientated towards compact computer systems that are not so obscurely shaped. Very few power supply vendors produce SFX or TFX units for the consumer market due to the fact demand is so low. However, be quiet! being the smart company they are have seen the trend towards SFX and TFX power supplies in recent years as small form factor builds have become more fashionable.

Corsair HXi Series 750 W @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Nov 17 2014 | 10:07A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the flagship HX1000i unit, the time has now come to evaluate the smaller member of this series, the HX750i. Like its big brother, this one is fully modular and 80 Plus Platinum certified. It is also fully compatible with the Corsair Link system because of the digital monitoring circuit it is equipped with."

Enermax Revolution XT 530W Semi-Modular Power Supply Review
     Wed, Nov 12 2014 | 6:57P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been a while since we’ve taken a look at a new Enermax power supply here at eTeknix. Despite that Enermax have been busy releasing new products left, right and centre under their own brand name and under their other power supply brand LEPA. Enermax have always targeted a fairly high end user with their power supplies which is probably what has gained them a long-term reputation as being trend-setters in the power supply industry. In this review we are checking out one of their units from the Revolution XT series and we are looking at the popular 530W wattage model. I remember from reviewing past Enermax PSUs that although their products were stellar quality they often lacked a little something special in the cable design and also in pricing: let’s hope this unit can reverse this trend. Straight away we can see Enermax listened to feedback on the cabling as they now offer all-black ribbon cables on the modular and hard-wired cables. The rest of the key features of the Revolution XT series include 80 Plus Gold efficiency, a semi-modular design, a DC to DC converter design, a 5 year warranty and the promise of “ultra silent” operation thanks to the high quality Enermax fan used. The Revolution XT series is geared for single and dual GPU systems depending on the voltage chosen, the Revolution XT 530W that we are testing is mainly geared for high performance single GPU systems running demanding graphics cards like AMD R9 290(X)s or Nvidia GTX 780(Ti)s.
