SilverStone Nightjar NJ520 520W Fanless PSU Review
     Mon, Jan 19 2015 | 4:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What is more quiet than a computer power supply with a fan? You guessed it, a PSU with no fan. This unit has small footprint builds in mind featuring excellent Platinum efficiency, flexible flat cables, and of course no sound profile to speak of. Does the 520 watt rated SilverStone Nightjar hold up when we put it in the incubator?

     Mon, Jan 19 2015 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake has traditionally shined when it comes to computer power supplies in excess of 1000 watts. But in the past these power supplies have often been very costly. Today we cover Thermaltake's new 1200 watt power supply that is currently selling for $139 after $30 MIR. Is it worth your hard earned dollars?

Silverstone SFX Series 600W SST-SX600-G @
     Sun, Jan 18 2015 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past few years we have really seen the Small Form Factor market grow, especially when it comes to small easy to transport gaming PCs, or what we call LAN Rigs. Early in 2013 I upgraded our Lunchbox 2 by upgrading the cooling and opening up room for airflow with a new SFX power supply from Silverstone. Later when I built Lunchbox 3 I used the same model of power supply. Why didn’t I change it up? Well not only did the first 450 watt SFX power supply perform reliably for me, but also frankly there just wasn’t any other competition. Silverstone had the highest wattage in the form factor not to mention the only SFX power supply with modular cabling. Well today we have the chance to check out the new top dog in SFX power supplies, Silverstone’s 600W SST-SX600-G.

Corsair HX1000i 1000W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Jan 18 2015 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair's HX series represents its "second tier" line of enthusiast computer power supplies, but its new HX1000i does take the top spot when it comes to its ~1000 watt power supplies that are Platinum certified and fully modular. Let's see if this latest addition from Corsair represents its quality pedigree of days gone by.

Seasonic PLATINUM-1050 Power Supply Review
     Sat, Jan 17 2015 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seasonic is one of our long-time favorites when it comes to truly high-end power supplies. The new PLATINUM-1050 PSU claims to deliver excellent power efficiency and does so with a fully modular design. Seasonic is often known designing products with excellent sound profiles. Does the PLATINUM-1050 fit the profile?

Corsair HX750i Power Supply Review
     Wed, Jan 14 2015 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Corsair has become known as a quality supplier of quite a few different products over the past few years, one of those being power supplies. Power Supplies have become a big part of their business and their professional HX series has been out for the past few years, being updated every so often. Just recently Corsair updated the line with the HXi series giving the units an 80PLUS Platinum certification, which means the unit will be 89% efficient at 100% load and 92% efficient at 50% load. The HXi series units also feature a fully modular design so you only use the cables that you need, have a Zero RPM mode which means the cooling fan will only spin up during high load and HXi series is Corsair Link ready so you can monitor and log fan speed, voltages, efficiency and more. Will this be the perfect power supply for your next build? Read on as we find out."

SilverStone SST-SX600-G 600W Power Supply Unit Review
     Mon, Jan 12 2015 | 1:56P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everything seems to be getting smaller and smaller nowadays (oh miniaturization) from the very obvious everyday things like clothes and cars and up to electrical and electronic devices of all kinds. Of course PC hardware couldn't be far behind (although it actually seems to be leading the "pack") and so lately we've seen many manufacturers produce really small/compact CPU coolers, graphics cards, mainboards, PC cases, power supplies and even complete systems. Power supplies however have always been amongst the first thing people tend to check out when starting to build a brand new system from scratch and that goes double for mATX/mITX configurations. Well today we're going to take a look at what could be the solution for people after compact SFX form factor PSUs with adequate power outputs, the SST-SX600-G 600W by SilverStone.

be quiet! Power Zone 1000W Modular Power Supply Review
     Mon, Jan 12 2015 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is fairly common for high wattage power supplies to boast top-end components, the best performance and as a result of that a very hefty price tag – making them quite inaccessible for most consumers. However, it doesn’t have to be that way: there are affordable options. Enter Be Quiet’s Power Zone range of power supplies which cover 650-1000W with extremely competitive price points. Today we are looking at the 1000W flagship Power Zone power supply which is the power supply that we run on our high-end graphics card test system. One of the key features with the Power Zone units is that they offer a fully modular design, solid power & performance and most importantly competitive price points. To reach this competitive price points some things do have to suffer: this unit is only rated for 80 Plus Bronze and the fan is going to be a fair bit louder than we’d expect from Be Quiet to tame all that extra heat, potentially up to 2900 RPM. Yet the Be Quiet Power Zone series still has all the hallmarks of an enthusiast product so let’s dig in with today’s review and take a closer look at what the Be Quiet Power Zone 1000W PSU has to offer.

Super Flower Leadex Gold 850W Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Jan 09 2015 | 4:21P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Leadex Gold 850 Watt, Super Flower has a PSU in their portfolio which they manufacture in-house. Especially in the case of their high-end power supplies SuperFlower is known for excellent build quality and apart from that their choice of components is very well though. Therefore it might not strike as a surprise, that we're really curious who this PSU is going to deal with our test parcours

Chieftec GPS-700A8 Review
     Tue, Jan 06 2015 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the GPS-700A8 Chieftec has an entry level power supply in its portfolio which offers 700 Watt output power. This unit comes with an 80Plus certificate at a low price point. Since Chieftec doesn't own their own PSU factory, they're using an OEM platform from High Power for this model. As usual we're curious to find out what this cheap 75 Euro 700W PSU is capable of.

Chieftec A-80 Series 650W Non-Modular Power Supply Review
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 6:18P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Chieftec A-80 Series 650W Non-Modular Power Supply Review A little while ago we ran a story about how the brand “Chieftec” were making a return to the UK market: Chieftec had previously been a sizeable player in the UK market selling a variety of cases and power supplies. Since their departure around 8 years ago they’ve been doing well in Asia and North America and now they are looking to get a foothold back in the UK and EU markets. As part of that they have launched a brand new range of power supplies and cases to get things moving. Peter Donnell, one of our senior reviewers, recently took a look at Chieftec’s newest full-tower case offering: the DX-02B. Now I will be taking a look at one of Chieftec’s newest power supply offerings; the CTG-650-80P. The more catchy name for it is the Chieftec A-80 650W power supply and as the “80P” model name suggests it comes with 80 Plus certification, the Bronze one to be exact. Aside from that it isn’t exactly the most exciting power supply in the world: you’ve got 650W of 80 Plus Bronze power with a decent chunk of cables and a fairly plain-Jane OEM style design. Of course, this isn’t a bad thing: Chieftec’s slogan for this product is “Why pay more than necessary?”. I couldn’t agree more, why waste money on painting the power supply, prettying up the cables and adding in loads of accessories when that just adds extra cost. Of course, without all those little extras the price to performance is going to be key here so let’s see exactly how it performs.

Posted by: STAFF
With the A135 Series APS-850CB Chieftec has a mid-range power supply in its portfolio which offers 850 Watt output power. When looking for an 80Plus certificate we find a Bronze sticker on this unit. Since Chieftec doesn't own their own PSU factory, their using an OEM platform from High Power for this particular model. As usual we're curious to find out what this 93 Euro PSU is capable of.
