Enermax Hoplite
     Sat, May 14 2011 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Enermax Hoplite PC case is the latest offering in their line of cases for value-conscious users. However, affordable and practical do not always go hand-in-hand, but for Enermax this synergy is usually blended and what comes out is usually quite good. This chassis looks to live up to such high expectations with its features and design, and a promise to not be hard on the wallet."

FSP Aurum 500 Gold Power Supply
     Thu, May 12 2011 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Only a couple months ago FSP came to market with the Aurum series of 80PLUS Gold certified power supplies. The Arum models start at lower wattages, and lower price tags, than most other 80PLUS Gold power supplies. Here today I have the base 500W model - a great contender for mainstream systems that want to save on their electricity bills without paying an unnecessary price for a power supply that's way more powerful than they really need."

Seasonic X-460 Fanless 460W 80Plus Gold Silent Powersupply Review
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 2:08A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those that know what to look for, power efficiency and silent operation are chief considerations when it's time for a power supply upgrade. Since power issues are also the number one cause of dead PC's it pays not to cheap out on this critical but typically underestimated computer component. While it's tempting to pick any old metal box with a suitable Wattage figure, in the long run most users quickly discover that power efficiency and quiet operation are equally important. Where power efficiency is concerned, certifications like '80 Pl us' are a good place to start.
www.pcstats.com
In this review PCSTATS is testing out an entirely fanless, silent 460W power supply from Seasonic's modular "X" series. There aren't very many fanless power supplies on the market so this is a bit of a treat. The Seasonic X-460 Fanless (SS-460FL) is an Active Power Factor Correction (A-PFC F3) class unit which boasts the exceedingly hard to come by 80 Plus Gold rating. A fanless 400W model (SS-400FLM) is also produced.

Seasonic X-760 760W 80Plus Gold Power Supply Review
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 2:08A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Seasonic SS-760KM is an Active Power Factor Correction (A-PFC F3) power supply that boasts an80 Plus Gold rating. It features a +12V rail capable of delivering 63 Amps, four 6/8 PCI Express videocard power connectors and the convenience of modular cables. The Seasonic SS-760KM X-760 power supply retails for about $180CDN ($180 USD, £90 GBP) and is covered by a five-year warranty.
www.pcstats.com
Under the matt-black steel case and honeycomb air vents are a few clever electrical choices. Seasonic use solid state aluminum polymer capacitors strategically throughout, for greater heat tolerance Japanese 105°C rated caps, to reduce current transmission resistance gold plated terminals. Furthermore, where the modular cables connect to the X-760, Seasonic employ a DC-to-DC converter board rather than a bundle of wires soldered to the modular cable jacks. Seasonic insist that by moving the +3.3V and +5V voltage regulator modules to the connector panel it has minimized voltage drops and impedance, improved airflow by doing away with unnecessary wires within the PSU and aided heat dissipation with a simple, unobstructed component layout.

"The Mushkin Enhanced Joule 800W power supply proved to be a very capable power supply following the OCC power supply testing methodology. The power supply itself is really hard to fault; satisfactory build quality, good DC voltage load regulation and very low AC noise/ripple in combination with high efficiency are everything the enthusiast needs in a power supply."

Kingwin Lazer Gold LZG-850 850 Watt Power Supply
     Sat, Apr 30 2011 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One company that was not offering power supplies until more recently, and have been doing a great job in that market now is Kingwin. We know Kingwin mostly for their hard drive accessories like docks and enclosures, or even cooling products. During their time in power supply production Kingwin has shown their knowledge and competence in this field by offering some fine products, including their latest model with an 80PLUS Platinum rating. Today, we will be taking a look at one of their 80+ Gold rated Lazer Gold models, which has an 850W rating and boasts some quality features.

NAXN 82+ 750W unit
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:30P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to have a look at a product from their latest series of power supplies, called NAXN, the NAXN 82+ 750W unit. How Enermax chose such a strange name for their new series of PSUs we will never know; what we do know is that the NANX series consists of the most aggressively priced products the company currently offers and they are obviously designed to appeal to budget-minded enthusiasts.

XFX Pro Series Core Edition Power Supplies
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The XFX Pro Series Core Edition power supplies performed very well across the range. The DC voltage load regulation was excellent from 20% to 100% DC loading and in combination with very low AC ripple/noise levels means excellent DC quality on all rails on all three power supplies. The 3V3 and 5V0 rails dipped a little lower than I would have liked but they still remained well within the limits set down by the ATX12V V2.2 specification and won’t prove to be a problem when the biggest dip below ideal rail voltage was only 0.09V."

"XFX is releasing their PRO series of power supplies, with single +12 V rail, DC-DC secondary design, and 80 Plus Bronze certification. So far three models were released: 650 W, 750 W, and 850 W. We have already tested the 650 W and the 750 W models, and both proved to have terrific cost/benefit ratios. Let's see if the 850 W model follows the same path."

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.
