Thermaltake Smart Series 730W Power Supply @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 11:55A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake is claiming that the new Smart series power supply is just that. The Smart series is only offered in a non-modular version for now. But the power range within the spectrum of anybody building a system from basic web browsing to gaming that reason is 430 to 730 watts."

Kingwin Stryker STR-500 & Silverstone ST50NF
     Wed, Feb 01 2012 | 12:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review and compare two fanless 500W ATX12V power supplies from quality brands. One has 80 Plus Platinum efficiency; the other sports Silver. In other ways, they appear similar, with the exo-heatsink design of so many passively cooled devices.

Hardwareoverclock.com has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the Thortech Thunderbolt Plus 850W PSU. The Plus series includes the world’s first interactive PSU control panel with fan speed control which also provides critical PSU data such as efficiency, wattage, Voltage, current, fan RPM and PSU internal temperature.

NZXT HALE82 750-watt Power Supply Review
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 11:46A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT expanded the features just a little bit on the HALE82 power supplies. This time around we get a full range of protections with the addition of over temperature protection. Usually when this is added they also rate the unit for 100% continuous output at 50C but oddly enough, we couldn`t find any documentation that the unit had the rating. The power supply still sports both native and modular cabling. NZXT has the HALE82 power supplies readily available through all of your normal online merchants. Once again, the cheapest we were able to find the unit online at the Directon for a total of $114.99 with free shipping."

Antec EarthWatts Platinum 650 W @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Jan 30 2012 | 1:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec finally decided to enter the Platinum efficiency club with the new EarthWatts Platinum series. These units address all users that just need a high efficiency PSU, with no bells and whistles. This new series creates a new mainstream class of PSUs and is placed between the EarthWatts Green and the High Current Gamer series."

Antec EarthWatts Platinum 650 W Power Supply Review

"The EarthWatts Platinum is the latest power supply series from Antec, and will be available in 450 W, 550 W, and 650 W versions, coming with the 80 Plus Platinum certification. This new series will reach the North American market next month; we were able to get a sample before its official release. Let's see if the 650 W model is a good option."

Super Flower Golden King 1000 W @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 8:09A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite the name, the Super Flower Golden King PSUs are 80 Plus Platinum certified. Today we will test the 1000 W flagship model to find out if it has the potential to claim the throne for the best, high capacity, Platinum PSU and put the excellent Seasonic SS-1000XP in second place."

NewerTech 7 Port USB 2.0 Hub with 3.5 Amp Power Supply @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 4:30P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The folks from OWC/NewerTechnology were kind enough to send over their 7 port USB 2.0 Hub with 3.5 amp power supply for review. Each port has a full 500 mA per port meaning devices such as scanners, optical drives, external drives, digital cameras and external drives can be simultaneously connected to your PC/Mac via the Hub"

NZXT HALE82 850-watt Power Supply Review
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 11:30A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was squarely aimed at enthusiasts with high efficiency and great performance with several options not normally seen in a mainstream product. All of this came with a little bit of a price premium and as such, there were many that passed on the power supply simply because it was a little bit out of their budget. Enter the NZXT HALE82. The new NZXT HALE82 series of power supplies aren`t meant for enthusiast, but are more geared towards mainstream gamers. One of the main differences that most will notice is that the new HALE82 series is only rated for 80Plus Bronze efficiency."

XFX ProSeries 1250 W @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Jan 25 2012 | 12:46P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
XFX is well known for their graphic cards but for quite some time they are also into the PSU market with two series called classic and Pro. Today we will test the flagship unit of the Pro series which with 1250W capacity will easily power even the most demanding systems."

Antec High Current Gamer 620W Power Supply Review
     Wed, Jan 25 2012 | 9:39A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you look at other power supplies in its class the Antec High Current Gamer 620W is very competitively priced. It`s not a high end power and certainly doesn`t claim to be but it works well at a good price. If you`re after a power supply to run your latest gaming PC with a single powerful graphics card and you don`t mind a captive cable set then it`s certainly worthy of your consideration. I have no hesitation in recommending the Antec HCG-620, it`s price/performance ratio is very good and certainly worthy of the OCC Bronze award."

Posted by: STAFF
FSP Aurum CM Series Gold 650M Power Supply Review @ HardwareHeaven.com A number of years ago FSP started producing retail power supplies for desktop PCs and during 2011 released their 80 Plus Gold Certified range of PSUs. There are two ranges available in the Aurum range, standard and semi-modular and today we have the 650w version of the modular PSU on our test bench."

Lepa G500 Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Jan 24 2012 | 11:04A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lepa G500 is a 500 watt Gold certified Power supply which will deliver up to 93% efficiency. The G500 Gold certified PSU from Lepa has three 12v rails that run at 25A each, a 3.3v rail and a 5v rail that both run at 20A a piece. The Lepa G500 is cooled by a 140mm fan, which should help keep the temperatures in check when you have your system running for extended periods of time. The G500 also has a slew of features, like Over Power, Over Voltage, Over Current, Short Circuit and Brown-out protection. The Lepa G500 is also a modular power supply, so it will help with any extra cable clutter, if you`re using a SFF or Mid-Tower case."

First Look: Corsair Individual Sleeved Modular PSU Cables @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jan 24 2012 | 7:51A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair usually makes a ton of noise when they launch new products, but for some reason the company silently launched a new product line on Facebook yesterday that went unnoticed by most tech sites. Corsair has announced individually sleeved modular cables! We bumped into Corsair at the FX GamExperience down in Dallas, Texas today and got a chance to check out the cables in person. Read on to check them out!"

TechREACTION Review: Enermax Briskie
     Sat, Jan 21 2012 | 11:31A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For testing, we decided that there was no better way to test it than to install it and type this review with the keyboard/mouse combo. Since it is geared toward portability and ease of use, we did not do any serious gaming on it. We all know wireless is not always the best gaming solution. The keys were very responsive while typing this review and the mouse, while taking a little while to get used to, worked great as well. With the on-the-fly DPI changes, we were able to control the mouse speed and find the perfect movement speed that suited us. The mouse is very light and somewhat on the small side (or maybe we just have big hands), but it was comfortable despite being designed for use with either hand. We never lost the signal with either the mouse or keyboard while typing, which was good."

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.
