PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 600W Power Supply Review
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 4:20P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of our readers are very familiar with PC Power & Cooling, so we will skip right to the chase with their latest product. PC Power & Cooling has yet again revamped the Silencer series of power supplies that has become almost infamous for their performance, reliability and low cost. One of the first things that you will notice is that this unit only has a single 46A 12V rail. It is becoming rare to find a power supply that isn`t capable for outputting 99% or more of its power on the 12V rail, but here we have one. What it lacks in 12V output, it makes up for on the minor rails. Both the 3.3V and 12V rails are capable of 24A each with a combined maximum output of 130W. This is more juice on the minor rails than even the recently reviewed XFX ProSeries 1000W PSU. Total combined continuous output is 600W."

Enermax Platimax 1000W Super Overclock Edition Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 2:42P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Enermax Platimax 1000W power supply is 80 plus platinum certified just like the rest of the Platimax lineup. The Enermax Platimax 1000W power supply, however, is unique to the rest of the series with its single 12V rail design. This makes the Platimax 1000W perfect, even at demanding high-output overclocked loads. The Enermax Platimax 1000W power supply is also equipped with a plethora of safety features, including multiple protection circuitry of OCP, OVP, DC UVP, OPP, OTP, SCP & SIP, as well as a low-noise-long-lifetime twister bearing fan that continues to cool for 30 to 60 seconds after shutting the system down for optimal thermal support. The Platimax 1000W power supply is also ready for future technologies, capable of C6 and Hybrid states compatibility, as well as utilizing a 12P modular design for possibly upcoming CPUs and GPUs."

Thermaltake Dr.Power II Universal ATX PSU Tester Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Nov 30 2011 | 8:58A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thermaltake Dr. Power II Universal ATX Power Supply Tester makes testing a PSU simple and easy. The Dr. Power II has been designed to support every ATX power supply available today. Dr. Power II includes an oversized LCD panel to show the values of each rail tested. There are connections for the 24-pin motherboard connector, 8 pin CPU connector, molex connector, SATA connector, and 8 pin PCI-E connector. This means that there is accurate voltage indicating for the +12V/+5V/+3.3V/5VSB/-12V rails. Inside are built-in PG alarm systems that will signal in low-voltage, high-voltage, and no voltage situations."

Thortech PSU Roundup 800-1200w Review - XSReviews
     Tue, Nov 29 2011 | 8:35P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since getting our greedy mits on an oscilloscope XSR has been back in full swing with PSU reviews, or at least half a PSU review. Today we`ll be doing the same with a couple of Thortech units, part of Thunderbolt Plus range. One`s 800w, the other 1000w. While our test rig can`t pull anywhere near the maximum of these units, let`s see if we can stress them a little."

NZXT HALE82 750 Watt Modular Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Nov 29 2011 | 3:56A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT HALE82 750 Watt Modular Power Supply is a new implementation of an old product. NZXT has redesigned their existing HALE82 750W to push out the same power with more reliability. The new design still retains 744W and 62A on the +12V rail. This rating puts it at a good advantage to power all of the newest GPU`s on the market. The HALE82 750W still retains the same look and functionality as the older model. There is a modular design to maximize airflow and cable management. For cooling there is a 120mm two-ball bearing fan for silent operation and optimal air intake. All of the important protections have been implemented for over current, voltage, power, temperature, under voltage, and short circuit. The HALE82 is 80 Plus Bronze certified. Efficiency ratings are advertized at 82% @ 20% load, 85% @ 50% load, and 82% @ 100% load."

In Win Commander II 1200W @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Nov 28 2011 | 4:33A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The power requirements of enthusiast and gaming PCs have increased dramatically over the last few years, due to the development of ever more powerful and sophisticated CPUs and graphics processors. The need to power these systems in a stable environment is greater than ever, and the power supplies required to feed these setups are a select group of products. We`re looking at the In Win Commander II 1200W power supply, a unit that comes with a military themed aesthetic, modular design, and 80PLUS Bronze certified at a current price of $220 that won`t break the bank."

Sentey Golden Steel Power 1000W Power Supply Review at Overclockers Online
     Sun, Nov 27 2011 | 10:18A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sentey may be a new name, but they?re one I?m definitely hoping will stick around. We?re getting a bit too comfortable here in the world of power supplies. We see many of the same names over and over again and were Sentey to keep pushing out units like the Golden Steel Power, I feel they?d help make things interesting, at least for a while. I for one am convinced and sold on the Golden Steel Power 1000W."

Enermax NAXN 82+ 550 W Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 9:19A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax has just expanded their NAXN 82+ series of power supplies with the 80 Plus Bronze certification to include three new models, 450 W, 550 W, and 650 W. (This series also has 750 W and 850 W models.) However, you need to pay attention, as Enermax also has two other series called NAXN, the plain NAXN, also known as Tomahawk II, featuring 350 W, 450 W, and 500 W models, with no 80 Plus certification, and the NAXN 80+, featuring 350 W, 450 W, 500 W, and 600 W models, with the standard 80 Plus certification. To make things more confusing, the 550 W model that we are reviewing is sold as NAXN (and not NAXN 82+). Anyway, let`s see if this new power supply is a good pick."

OCZ ZT Series 550W Power Supply Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ZT Series is found within OCZ`s High Performance category and is significant due to its fully modular cabling system. Most PSUs that name themselves modular refer to a certain group of cables that are removable but the ZT boasts a completely modular configuration - even the motherboard ATX cable is detachable. The ZT series adopts 80 Plus Bronze certification and is available in following variants 550W, 650W, and 750W. Today we will be taking a look at the first model and lowest rated wattage - 550W. Ideal for those who are looking to build a gaming system with a powerful graphics card and typical assortment of drives and devices."

Kingwin Stryker STR-500 500W Fanless Power Supply Review
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 12:29A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the best parts of covering hardware for computer enthusiasts is that there are so many different needs for enthusiasts. Usually when someone thinks of someone as being an enthusiast, they relate them with someone who has the fastest or most powerful equipment available. This isn`t necessarily the case, especially with what we are looking at today. HTPC enthusiasts often look for something that is small and unobtrusive, or something that is silent yet powerful. Silent and powerful is something that is hard to come by with a HTPC, especially since fanless power supplies are few and far between. Thankfully we now have another option thanks to Kingwin launching their Stryker Fanless series. Today we are going to take a look at the 500W model. It boasts quite a few features that will allow it to fulfill a variety of roles and should also appeal to a wide customer base. Not only is the Stryker series a fanless power supply, but it also comes with enough connectors to power multi-GPU systems and has an 80Plus Platinum efficiency rating. Keep reading to find out more about Kingwin`s latest."

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.
