LEPA G1600 MA EU 1600W PSU Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are looking at a high end power supply rated to deliver 1600 watts of power. The LEPA G1600 has been a successful high end product for parent company Enermax – so much so that they have not updated it since the original release in 2012. Available for around £250 inc vat, is this a power supply you should be considering for a new ultra high end system build?

SilverStone Strider Gold S ST75F-GS V2.0 750W Review @ APH Networks
     Sun, May 03 2015 | 10:16A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
V2.0 of SilverStone`s Strider Gold S 750W PSU takes it to the minimum at 14.0cm long, while still being a fully modular, 80 Plus Gold certified power supply. We took one apart to see what is inside."

BitFenix Fury 650W Gold Modular Review
     Sat, May 02 2015 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Bitfenix have earned a strong reputation in enthusiast circles thanks to their wide range of quality case designs. In the efforts to diversify their portfolio they recently launched a power supply range – dubbed the ‘Fury’. Available in three capacities – we look at the mid model today – the Fury 650W. These semi modular power supplies have all achieved 80 Plus Gold Certification and are competitively priced. One of the main talking points is actually the individually sleeved cabling, eye catching at this price point.

Antec VPF550 Strictly Power 550W Power Supply Unit Review
     Tue, Apr 28 2015 | 1:21P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This may not come as a shock to some people (however it does to me sometimes) but not every gamer or professional in the market is willing to spend much on a quality power supply unit even if they happen spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars/euros on a single graphics card. The good thing with this however is that it's not possible sometimes since really strong graphics cards require quite a bit of power and to get that people have no choice but to spend a lot more than they'd like to. On the other hand if you just want to power a low-mid/end system you don't have to worry about that (not as much anyways) and so even a low-output PSU should suffice. Today we're taking a look at one such PSU, the Strictly Power VPF550 550W model by Antec.

Andyson Titanium N 700 W
     Fri, Apr 24 2015 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the release of the 1200 Platinum unit, Andyson has now also put a Titanium unit with four models into their portfolio. We will take a look at the N700 today: It features a semi-modular cabling design to keep its price down and promises to perform incredibly well.

Seasonic X-Series 1050W Power Supply
     Fri, Apr 10 2015 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we look at the new X-Series 1050W power supply from Seasonic, a refresh on the older model which was hot news back in 2012. This new model is a pure modular design with 80 Plus Gold Certification and has received a handful of upgrades for 2014.

Super Flower Golden Silent 500W Semi-Modular Passive Power
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 12:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you want a truly silent system there are a lot of things to consider purchasing: a passive graphics card, a passive CPU cooler, SSD storage instead of mechanical hard drives and more importantly a passively cooled power supply. The advantages of a passively cooled power supply are numerous but the main advantage is that unlike most power supplies that will get noisy above 50% load a passive power supply never gets noisy. Other advantages include the fact that passive power supplies tend to require higher quality components in order to keep heat output down so when you buy a passive power supply you also know you’re buying quality and an efficient unit. Today I am taking a look at my second passively cooled power supply but this time from a brand not many people have heard of. Super Flower may not be well known as a consumer brand but Super Flower already feature inside many high-end power supplies sold by big brands, EVGA is the most notable one of those that springs to mind. In the UK market at least Super Flower are deciding to go at it as a standalone brand selling a wide range of their power supplies through Overclockers UK at very competitive prices. In this review I will be looking at Super Flower’s Golden Silent 500W passive power supply. This is an interesting power supply for a number of reasons: because it is 80 Plus Platinum rated, because it has a whopping big heatsink built into the PSU but also because the design has been built in its entirety from the ground up by Super Flower.

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

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. "
