Mushkin Enhanced Joule 700 Watt Power Supply Review
     Sat, Jul 02 2011 | 12:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This time around we have another power supply from Mushkin ready to go through our load tests. Last month we took a look at the Mushkin Enhanced Joule 800W power supply. Now we have the Joule 700W on the bench for testing. Being that the unit is from the same series and manufacturer, you would expect almost identical builds and results. Right off the delivery truck we could tell a big difference in design between the 700W and 800W models. It was quite apparent that the Joule 700W didn't have nearly as extensive cooling on the inside. We also noticed that while the 800W model holds an 80Plus Silver rating, the smaller 700W model only manages to hold an 80Plus Bronze rating."

FSP Group Aurum Gold 500 Power Supply
     Thu, Jun 30 2011 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Unless you are running multiple video cards and a beefy processor, you won't have any use for a monster 1KW+ PSU. Even relatively powerful hardware doesn't come close to using the kind of power that super high-end units provide. Today we will be taking a look at a "mainstream" power supply from FSP Group, the Aurum Gold 500. The Aurum is a 500 watt non-modular power supply that features 80+ Gold certification and dual 12v rails. The 500w model is one of four in the Aurum series; other models include a 400w variety and beefier 600w and 700w units."

Pico Power Supply Backplate Review
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you use a picoPSU in a case with space for a full ATX power supply unit (PSU) two questions can’t help but come up: how to plug the giant gap in the back, and where to mount the external plug. In the past I’ve just cut the back off a broken standard PSU and drilled a hole. While certainly functional, it’s clearly not ideal for everyone as it requires power tools, a sacrificial unit and tolerance for a less visually appealing final product. Fortunately there is a solution which allows a more polished look and alleviates the need for surgical skill -- sourced from Doug Kenyon, a fellow HTPC enthusiast who mentioned the plate’s existence on AVS Forum.

Corsair TX850 V2 Power Supply Review
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Let's take a look at the revamped Corsair TX850 power supply, dubbed TX850 V2, now featuring a DC-DC design and 80 Plus Bronze certification. It is important to understand that while the old TX850 was manufactured by CWT, being a relabeled 850VH unit from this manufacturer, the new Corsair TX850 V2 is manufactured by Seasonic, being internally identical to the XFX PRO 850 W unit.

FSP Aurum CM Gold 750 W Power Supply Review
     Fri, Jun 24 2011 | 4:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In the beginning of this year, FSP launched its 80 Plus Gold power supply series, dubbed Aurum Gold series (which is a redundant name, by the way, since Aurum means "Gold" in Latin; calling something "Gold Gold" makes no sense). With models ranging from 400 W to 700 W, this series surprised everybody with its incredible low price, thanks to the unusual electronic architecture used. FSP is now launching another series based on the same design, featuring a modular cabling system and offered in 550 W, 650 W and 750 W versions. The first version won't be available in North America, but the other two should arrive in the North American market by the end of this month. Let's see if the 750 W model is a good buy."

Posted by: STAFF
"The Lepatek G700-MA 700W PSU arrived Technic3D. See you in the following Review from Technic3D the next PSU with three +12V rails (25A), a 140mm Fan, 8x SATA hard disk connectors and 4x PCI-e 6+2-Pin. Better than Enermax PSUs?"

The Linux Kernel Power Problems On Older Desktop Hardware
     Wed, Jun 22 2011 | 4:33P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As mentioned last week, a plethora of Linux power tests are on the way now that we have found an AC power meter with USB interface that works under Linux and we've been able to integrate nicely into the Phoronix Test Suite and its sensor monitoring framework. In this article is one of the first tests that have been completed using this power-measuring device as we monitored the Linux kernel power consumption for an old Intel Pentium 4 and ATI Radeon 9200 system for the past several kernel releases. Even this very old desktop system looks to be affected by the kernel power problems."

Arctic Fusion 550R Review
     Wed, Jun 22 2011 | 4:33P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Arctic Fusion 550R is a very small, silent and cheap power supply delivering efficient performance for your mid range equipment. The Fusion R is the upgraded PSU from the previous Fusion; the differences are increase in voltage to give more reliable efficiency. This PSU is equipped with its own external 80mm fan. With an efficiency of 82 to 86%, the Fusion 550 is very efficient. This eco-friendly power supply unit protects the environment and saves energy costs for you as well. Even when the PC is switched off, the low standby power consumption of the Fusion 550 helps to save energy.”

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1050W Power Supply
     Mon, Jun 20 2011 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As a hardware enthusiast, trade shows like CES and Computex showcase many new products that you can expect to see on the market either immediately or sometime after the show. As a hardware reviewer, these shows are even more insightful as it gives a pretty solid road map of what we will be working with over the next six months or so. We have already looked at products from OCZ, Cooler Master and SilverStone that we previewed at the show, just to name a few. Today that trend continues as we have Thermaltake's Toughpower Grand series power supply on the hotbed. "

Since Hardware Secrets made us all look a little silly a few years ago, without access to the full test setups that the big sites and PSU manufacturers have, XSR has backed off its PSU reviews to instead make them unboxing-previews.

Enermax Platimax 600W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 11:19A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax is well known amongst the enthusiast community for their quality power supplies inside and out. The examples we have seen in the last year with the MaxRevo and the Modu87+ were no exceptions, so when Enermax offered us the chance to get an early look at their upcoming Platimax unit, we gladly obliged. Enermax already has several Platimax power supplies available and we`ve heard that the 600W model will launch sometime in January 2012. The new Platimax 600W power supply boasts a lot of features that make it sound great on paper. Platinum efficiency, 100% Japanese capacitor construction, 600W of multi-GPU ready power, SpeedGuard, SafeGuard, HeatGuard, CordGuard and so much more. All of this doesn`t mean a thing if the power supply can`t back it up where it counts."

OCZ ZT Series 650W Power Supply Review @ APH Networks
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 9:45A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the progression of time, the evolution of the human race and ideas change with it. This is quite obvious when you take a look at your photo album or history books dating back to who-knows-when. Whether it be experiences of your own life, or mistakes and successes recorded in the books of history, there are many valuable lessons to be learned. Success is what we all should take pride in, and further improvement makes us even more successful people. But as you flip the coin over and take a look at the failures, do we simply push them aside and forget that it ever happened? Getting your finger burnt on the stove teaches you to watch what you`re doing and where you`re placing things. Such concepts could also be applied in the world of technology. While in the process of developing the carbonized cotton-thread filament for the incandescent light bulb, Thomas Edison had said, I didn`t fail; I found out 2,000 ways how not to make a light bulb. The process of trial and error is one of the many paths that can be taken in the development of ideas and technology. I`m not exactly sure how some companies get things done, but what I am certain of is that the method of trial and error has been used at least once here and there. What we have today is a fully modular 80 Plus Bronze Certified mid-range power supply from OCZ -- namely, the ZT Series 650W. From the looks of it, the ZT Series 650W is a more budget friendly power supply for those that are looking for performance with 100% modular cables. Generally speaking, is the OCZ ZT Series 650W an error or a success? Read on to find out!"

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
