NZXT HALE82 850 Watt Modular Power Supply Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Feb 17 2012 | 9:29A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At 850 Watts, and with an 80+ Bronze Certification, the NZXT Hale82 850 Watt Modular PSU packs plenty of punch while still maintaining excellent efficiency. The NZXT Hale82 850 Watt Modular PSU is able to maintain greater than 82% efficiency, even at 100% load, lightening the amount of energy consumed and, consequently, lightening your electric bill. Unlike many items where energy efficiency typically equates in loss of performance, PSUs like the Hale82 use this to deliver every bit as much power to your components while drawing less from your outlet. In addition to efficiency, the NZXT Hale82 sports some very impressive power numbers, including 70A and 840W capabilities on a single high capacity 12v rail. NZXT keeps things safe in the Hale82, using protection for over voltage, current, power, temperature, under voltage, and short circuit protection. /"

Kingwin LZP-1000: Platinum Efficiency at a KiloWatt
     Fri, Feb 17 2012 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The subject of our second KW power supply test in a row is an 80 Plus Platinum rated Kingwin vying for top honors among gaming silent PC enthusiasts. How does it fare against the Seasonic X1050 celebrated in a recent review? http://www.silentpcreview.com/Kingwin_LZP-1000_PSU

[DreamWare Computers] FSP Aurum Gold CM Power Supply
     Thu, Feb 16 2012 | 8:17P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To fix one caveat of the original Aurum series, it`s non-modular cable design, FSP came to market with the Aurum CM series. The CM series is very similar to the basic Aurum series in almost every way except that it has a modular cable design with flat ribbon style cables. I have an Aurum CM here today, so let`s take a better look, shall we?"

Antec VP450 Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 11:09A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Basiq power supply series from Antec is targeted to users with serious budget restrictions. The new VP350 and VP450 models are the most entry-level power supplies offered by Antec, as they don`t have a PFC circuit or 80 Plus certification. Let`s see whether the 450 W model, which is sold for only USD 40, is worth considering."

[Affiliates News] PC Power & Cooling Silencer M k III 600W Review @ APH
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 10:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Stealth and sneak is the way to be, as a sniper sits behind a nearby tree. Oh the many things he may yet to see, but only one target is the key. Seasons come and seasons go, but the time came when the ground is covered with snow. PC Power & Cooling drops by to say `hello`, only to say that the target is blended in with the snow below. A white power supply is what we see, but a Silencer Mk III 600W is its true identity. Before you slowly move towards the little `X` at the corner of your browser, let me inform you that this power supply we have here at our APH labs is truly unique. Nowadays, more and more people are leaning towards such products, and I am no exception. Sometimes, such unique products come with a high price tag, as some people possess the idea of unique means special, and if I want it, I am willing to pay more. I don`t know about you, but when it comes down to such products I want, there is always a tight budget; especially money is usually not in your favor. Being the computer enthusiast that I am, having only a couple computers in the house for my personal use doesn`t seem to cut it. This eventually leads to spending more and more money on secondary computers in different locations of the house for the sole purpose of conveniently accessing the internet or files on my network. Whether you have a mindset like me, or if you simply have a limited budget for a decent enough computer, PC Power & Cooling`s Silencer Mk III is a good place to start for mid-range power supplies. With most power supplies possessing the usual dark colors, the Silencer Mk III comes in a unique white body. But does its outer look live up to market niche expectations? Read on to find out!"

Athena Power AP-MFATX40P8 400 W Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 8:24P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Athena Power AP-MFATX40P8 400 W is a tiny FlexATX power supply measuring 3.2 x 1.7 x 6 inches (80 x 40 x 150 mm), targeted to small form factor (SFF) computers with Mini-ITX motherboards, coming with the 80 Plus Bronze certification. We tested the 350 W version of this power supply, which didn`t pass our tests. Let`s see if the 400 W version is a better product."

Spire BlackDragon 400 W @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 1:26P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of you probably know Spire from their cooling solutions and maybe their enclosures. However, the fact is that Spire actually has a rich portfolio of PSU products with capacities ranging from 400W to 1200W (RockIT II). Recently they released a new PSU series, called BlackDragon and they were kind enough to send us the 400W model for review."

Thortech Thunderbolt 1000W PSU
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 12:48P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thortech Thunderbolt 1000W PSU arrived Technic3D. See you in the following Review from Technic3D the next PSU with four +12V rails (30A), a 135mm Fan, 12x SATA hard disk connectors and 8x PCI-e 6+2-Pin."

Thermaltake Smart 630 W Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Tue, Feb 07 2012 | 10:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Smart Series is a new entry-level power supply series from Thermaltake, with the standard 80 Plus certification. Coming to replace the old Purepower and TR2 standard series, this new series features 430 W, 530 W, 630 W, and 730 W models, all with the standard 80 Plus certification.

Gold and Bronze: NZXT Power Supply Units Roundup
     Sun, Feb 05 2012 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink

Thermaltake SMART 630W Power
     Fri, Feb 03 2012 | 4:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks ago, we have taken a look at the Thermaltake SMART 730W power supply. The SMART series is a value oriented line of PSUs designed to be not only budget friendly, but also eco-friendly. But the thing is, not everyone needs 730W. To cater to those who only need a power supply that delivers a moderate amount of juice, what we have here at APH Networks this morning is the 630W version in the same product line. With an extra rated 30W and $5 cheaper than the PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 600W after mail in rebate at press time, how does it step up? Read on to find out!

Thermaltake Dr. Power II ATX Power Supply Tester Review @ Tweaknews
     Fri, Feb 03 2012 | 11:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake`s Dr. Power II works as advertised, is relatively accurate and has an easily used and intuitive interface. Two testing modes allow the user to make a quick pass or zero in on a suspect connector or rail. It`s compact, lightweight and the large LCD screen is easy to read."

Cooler Master Choiix Power Fort 5600 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Feb 03 2012 | 9:07A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Extended batteries. When I mention those two words, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Does anything even come to mind for you? Well, to most people that I talk to about getting an extended battery for their phone or other mobile device they just respond with ?I will just make sure that I plug it in every day.? But what if you use your device all-day, every day, and you find yourself on a long flight across the Pacific? What if you are just too lazy to plug your phone in every night? Well, the Power Fort is a device that claims to be the savior of those moments. But how does it hold up in testing? Let?s find out!"

Seasonic X-1050 PSU: Gold at Kilowatt+
     Fri, Feb 03 2012 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seasonic recently entered the ranks of kilowatt PSU makers with new 1050W and 1250W models in its X series, and a 1000W model in its new X-derivative Platinum line. Our acoustics-focused review of the 80 Plus Gold approved X-1050 finds Seasonic in fine form.
