Antec HCG-620 High Current Gamer Series Power Supply Review
     Fri, Aug 05 2011 | 4:22P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Antec HCG-620W power supply is in the middle of the High Current Gamer pack. The Antec HCG-620W is 80 plus bronze certified and comes with full industrial-grade protection, including over-voltage, over-current, short-circuit and over-power protection. Internally, the Antec HCG-620W uses all Japanese brand capacitors for reliability and is equipped with a 135 mm fluid dynamic-bearing fan for quieter performance and longer lifespan compared to the standard sleeve-bearing fan. For peace of mind, the High Current Gamer 620W power supply also comes with Antec’s Quality warranty, which covers performance failure up to 3-years from the date of purchase."

Posted by: STAFF
"Lately we've been trying to reach out and make sure that we cover a wide range of manufacturers in an effort to provide you with more information when choosing a power supply. One such manufacturer that we have yet to see on our bench that we have had several requests for is Kingwin.

This is probably one of the most attractive features of this power supply from an enthusiast standpoint, but it does have quite a few other features as well.

Corsair HX1050 1050 Watt Power Supply Review
     Thu, Jul 21 2011 | 4:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Corsiar has been on a massive refresh of their various series of power supplies. We've covered just about everything they have to offer from the low output CX430V2 to the massive AX1200 and many in between. Today we are taking a look at another one of their higher end power supplies, the HX1050. As a part of Corsair's Professional series of power supplies, it is intended for those who demand high performance and high reliability. Corsair already has the HX1000 available, so many may ask as to why offer another power supply in the series that is capable of an extra 50W. The answer is simply that the HX1050 is completely different from the HX1000 and not just an old model with a few changes to lengthen the lifespan. With a single 12V rail, increased efficiency and a seven year warranty, the HX1050 is starting to look much more appealing than the aging HX1000. Read on as we cover the tech specs of the HX1050."

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200W Power Supply
     Thu, Jul 21 2011 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What is the first thing that comes to mind when I mention the words 'cake' and 'cheese'? Cheese that is melted on top of a cake? A cake made out of cheese? Or should I simply refer to it as a cheesecake? Recently, I have been reading Preston's Toughpower Grand 750W report, and thought to myself: What better way is there to start the Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200W review, than to plagiarize a few lines from the my colleague's article introduction earlier in March this year? Now obviously plagiarism and cheesecakes have nothing to do with a power supply we are reviewing today -- but before you click the little 'X' next to your browser's tab, let me ask you this question first before moving on further in this review: Would you buy an ugly looking cheesecake to munch down on, or an ugly plagiarized cake (Oh yes, cakes can be plagiarized) for that special someone? Probably not, and I believe nine out of ten people would agree also. In the world of computers, PC enthusiasts will go pretty far in obtaining hardware to make their system look pretty, and I have to admit that I am one of them. Not too long ago, I was checking my email, and it so happens Thermaltake dropped by with a note asking if I wanted to check out the Toughpower Grand 1200W. At first glance, it still has a simple, yet unique strip of red on a dark matte body with rounded corners; this no different than any other models in this product line. Knowing how awesome the 750W is with regards to its top notch build quality and simply class leading performance, without further thought, I told myself this is really the one to get if I desired awesomeness. But what and how much has changed under the hood in this kilowatt-plus monster? Keep reading to see what we have found

Seasonic X-Series 660W Modular Power Supply @ Bjorn3D
     Wed, Jul 20 2011 | 5:30A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seasonic has been making high-quality power supplies ever since they hit the market two years ago. Not only is their new X-660 660W power supply 80Plus Gold rated, but also comes with a quiet fan. The PSU?s fan does not kick in till the user reaches 20±5% load, and it maintains a 16dB(A) acoustic noise level until it reaches 50% load. From that point on the fan speed begins speeding up, still maintaining low acoustic noise. The Seasonic X-660 750W power supply is also 100% modular, which makes it very easy to install and prevents large cable messes from accumulating."

Enermax NAXN 80+ 600 W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Jul 17 2011 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The NAXN, the latest power supply series from Enermax, is subdivided into three sub-series: the NAXN, also known as Tomahawk II, featuring 350 W, 450 W, and 500 W models, with no 80 Plus certification; the NAXN 80+, featuring 350 W, 450 W, 500 W, and 600 W models, with the standard 80 Plus certification; and the NAXN 82+, featuring 750 W and 850 W models, with the 80 Plus Bronze certification and modular cabling system (a feature not available on the models from the other two sub-series.) Let's see if the new Enermax NAXN 80+ 600 W is a good option."

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.
