SilverStone Strider Gold S ST75F-GS V2 PSU Review
     Wed, Apr 08 2015 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A lot of PC applications have been trending toward smaller footprints in the last few years. SilverStone is looking to further address this need by packing as much wattage as possible into a confined space. The Strider Gold S ST75F-GS V2 is fully modular and is billing it as the "world's smallest full-modular ATX PSU" at its capacity.

Silverstone Strider Plus 700W Review
     Tue, Apr 07 2015 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone have earned a positive reputation over the years, crafting some of the finest computer cases for the enthusiast audience. They have also had great success with their range of power supplies, especially in the high end. Today we look at something more modest, designed for the mainstream audience – the Strider Plus 700 W, a 80 Plus Bronze certified modular power supply sporting a single +12V rail.

Sandberg Outdoor Powerbank 10400 mAh Review
     Wed, Apr 01 2015 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As most of you know portable batteries (also known as power banks) are not new in the market and as a matter of fact I’ve been testing and using such devices for roughly 5 years now so whenever someone tells me that this is the first time to ever hear about them I’m quite surprised honestly. For example 3 days ago my smartphone was quickly running out of juice while i was drinking a cup of coffee at my favorite place by the beach (WiFi does that) so i decided to get back to my car and bring a portable battery with me to charge it. Well i don't know if it was the design of the portable battery i used or the fact that it was larger than my smartphone (much thicker actually) but people where staring at me for quite a while (even the waitress came over and asked what that was). Now the reason i mentioned the design of this particular portable battery model is because it's a rather unique looking device and more specifically it's the latest Outdoor Powerbank by Sandberg.

VisionTek 800W 80 Plus Bronze Modular Power Supply @ Bjorn3d.com
     Wed, Apr 01 2015 | 11:45A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Several years back we shopped power supplies and the PSUs in the 1k range ran from $130 to well over $200. One of the biggest draws on the power supply were the video card but video cards have downsized their power requirements as technology moves forward. Most single core GPUs only require a good quality 500W power supply but toss on a Haswell core and overclock it until it screams having extra overhead on your power supply is a good idea. Having extra overhead on your power supply ensures that you dont over strain the PSU and have a catastrophic failure potentially taking expensive components with it. To that end we are taking a look at the VisionTek 800W Bronze rated power supply. Coming in at $99.99 for 800 watts of solid power sustaining your expensive enthusiast rig the VisionTek 800w Bronze modular power supply is a great foundation to build your dream rig on."

Xigmatek Maverick S 500 W
     Tue, Mar 31 2015 | 11:24A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Xigmatek released the Maverick S line consisting of three rather compact, Bronze-certified PSUs a while ago. We will evaluate the line's 500 W member today; it features a semi-modular design and interesting looks. This unit's strongest point is its incredibly low price; however, you currently won't find it anywhere in the US.

     Sun, Mar 29 2015 | 2:37P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

SilverStone Silver Strider 750 Watt PSU @ Bjorn3d.com
     Sat, Mar 28 2015 | 11:45A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SilverStone Silver Strider 750 Watt PSU is the smallest full modular ATX power supply on the market. From the back of your chassis to the front of the Silver Strider 750 its a mere 140mm making it the mightiest Mini sized PSU available. Struggling with a smaller chassis but need killer voltage regulation for your dream builds components , look no farther SilverStone, one of the premier PSU manufacturers in the world, has you covered front to back (at least 140mms worth). The previous generation (Version 1.0) was 150mm in depth and quite the mighty Mini in itself but SilverStone had to one up themselves and go for a 140mm Version 2.0. "

Posted by: STAFF

Be Quiet! Silent Base 800
     Wed, Mar 25 2015 | 12:37P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Be Quiet! has a bit of price tag which brings it down when it comes to desirability. The temperature charts put the chassis near the worst I've tested. This is not because of poor airflow, but because it was designed around near silent operations, which in turn means slows fans and they don't ramp up when the temperatures start to raise. That is all the gripes I have. While this chassis isn't design for the high performance that many readers have come to expect from a bigger tower. It also doesn't help some chassis like the NZXT H440, is marketed towards one and does the opposite. Just remember you are buying a product geared towards quiet operations that sacrifices a little bit of performance.”

Enermax DigiFanless 550W Review
     Wed, Mar 25 2015 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been quite some time since we have analysed an Enermax power supply, so it is with great interest that we take a look at the new DigiFanless 550W today. This supply is a pure modular, fanless design and has achieved an 80 Plus Platinum certification. Enermax also incorporate management software, which will surely appeal to a specific audience who enjoy ‘tweaking’ settings.

EVGA SuperNova P2 1200 PSU Review
     Wed, Mar 18 2015 | 12:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA have earned a fantastic reputation over the years for their selected range of motherboards and graphics cards. Today we look at one of their high end power supplies – the SuperNova 1200 P2. This is a creation with OEM partner, Super Flower. The EVGA SuperNova 1200 P2 supply is full modular, 80 Plus Platinum certified and can be driven in a semi passive mode. The warranty is certainly exhibiting a confidence in the product that EVGA wish to pass onto the customer – ten years is not to be sniffed at.

Seasonic Snow Silent Series 1050 W
     Tue, Mar 17 2015 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink

be quiet! Silent Base 800 Review
     Thu, Mar 12 2015 | 7:18P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At a first glance, the Silent Base 800 from be quiet! is a well thought and good looking case. Although the manufacturer is rather new to the case business, the Silent Base 800 appears to be very interesting silent case, which has been equipped with thick and effective soundproofing material.

FSP PB Runner 10400mAh Power Bank Review
     Wed, Mar 11 2015 | 4:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Long distance running is something I’ve just recently gotten into since in the past i never thought that it was really important so walking for a couple of kilometers per couple of days seemed to be sufficient (trust me it's not). Anyways a couple of weeks ago i was away with a friend trying to put my latest Mizuno shoes to the test when suddenly after almost 30 minutes of running my smartphone indicated that it was almost out of battery. Luckily I’m always prepared for that so while in one armband i have my smartphone in the other i have a small credit-card power bank (sometimes i carry a larger one) which can give my smartphone roughly 3 extra hours of life which although not really much especially if you use your smartphone a lot but for me and for that specific day it proved sufficient. Today however we're going to be taking a closer look at a much higher capacity power bank solution, the PB Runner 10400mAh model by FSP.
