Seasonic X-460 Fanless 460W Powersupply Review
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 4:44P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"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. If you're planning on building 100% silent computer system the Seasonic X-460 Fanless is certainly tempting; it features a 460 Watt power level, modular cable system, matt black fingerprint resistant steel case, good EMI shielding and is able to sustain a peak load of 38A on the +12V rail."

AXP SuperNova 1000 Watt Power Supply
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Suffice to say, I think the power supply is possibly the most important component in today’s computers. It gives life to our pieced-together monsters, and then takes it away in an instant, if it isn’t up to the task. All the shear computational and graphic processing in the world sits unused without electricity. With reverence, I give you the AXP SuperNova , a monster 1000 watt power supply with enough connectors it looks like a boxy spaghetti monster. How well does it work? Let’s just say it’s worth the asking price. Ramen.

Thermaltake Element Q Mini-ITX Chassis w/ 220W Power Supply
     Sun, Jan 09 2011 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you are even slightly computer savvy and have been shopping for anything PC related, I'm sure you have run across the name Thermaltake in your travels. Everything from power supplies, chassis', and cooling has been handled for years by them, and they did quite well making a name for themselves. A while back we did get the opportunity to look at a couple of the mid and full tower chassis' in the Element series designed for gamers and having cooling and wire management being of utmost importance. Today the Element series is taking a turn, or a reduction to be more precise. The chassis we are about to look at is quite Spartan compared to its much larger brethren, as this chassis isn't exactly directed at gaming as the others were. This time the chassis gets dropped to about the height of your favorite 12 oz. beverage, and is designed to go in a HTPC environment or a low power web surfing and email machine if you don't want to include this to your home theater."

Cooler Master Choiix Cruiser Mouse and Power Fort Charger
     Thu, Jan 06 2011 | 4:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The world is getting more and more mobile when it comes to technology that used to be centered on the home computer. More and more people are now depending on laptops to do what used to only be attainable via the desktop at home. While this can partly be attributed to the fact that laptops are now just as capable as desktops when it comes to basic functions like internet surfing, word processing, and the like, the move to mobile is also for convenience whenever you are away from home. With this in mind, Cooler Master's Choiix line of products caters to the travelling laptop and mobile device user. The two products we are looking at today, the Choiix Cruiser mouse and Power Fort portable charger, look to enhance your mobile experience without taking up a whole lot of space in your bag. Let's take a look at what these two products have to offer."

Ultra LSX 750W Power Supply
     Thu, Jan 06 2011 | 12:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I know from past experience that other Ultra power supplies haven't quite been up there with the best, but the LSX 750W electrical performance is excellent. The DC voltage load regulation, in combination with very low noise/ripple levels, make for very good DC quality on all the rails. The efficiency, though not quite meeting its 80 Plus Bronze certification following the OCC power supply testing methodology, is still very good at 87% maximum."

Seasonic X-750 750W 80Plus Gold Power Supply Review
     Fri, Nov 27 2009 | 4:18A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

In this review PCSTATS will be testing out a 750W power supply from Seasonic's flagship modular gaming "X" series. The Seasonic SS-750KM is an Active Power Factor Correction (A-PFC F3) class unit which boasts the exceedingly hard to come by 80 Plus Gold rating. The X-750 reveals some clever internal choices; a quiet Sanyo Denki 120mm fan operates at near inaudible levels, the strategic use of solid state aluminum polymer capacitors, the modular cable board being a DC-to-DC converter rather than just a bundle of wires extending to jacks, and most strikingly... a nearly cable-less interior.

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.
