Grand 750W Power Supply Review
     Mon, Mar 28 2011 | 4:01P | 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 invited to a wedding, and the first thing that comes to my mind is the bride and groom cutting their wedding cake. Now obviously weddings 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 wedding cake 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 browsing the internet in search of some new hardware for my system, and it so happens that I have stumbled across a good looking power supply, in which I am going to report on today. This is no other than the Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 750W. At first glance, it has a simple, yet unique strip of red on a dark matte body. As well, a Ferrari/Lamborghini inspired logo is stamped onto the honeycomb mesh in front of the fan. Without further thought, I told myself this was one power supply is a must-have for looks. But how well does its outer appearance reflect its internal quality? Being an 80 Plus Gold certified power supply, I am quite confident that Thermaltake has produced a quality cheesecake... I mean, a power supply. Keep reading to see what we have found!

Any PC enthusiast is quite familiar with the name PC Power & Cooling. Ever since the company's inception in 1985, the name has been synonymous with quiet computing and shortly thereafter high-quality power supplies. Since then, the company has been a leader in the PSU industry producing many firsts such as the first redundant power system, first NVIDIA certified SLI PSU, 1000W PSU, and first power supply to ship with its own certified test report. They are clearly a company dedicated to providing the best product available to their customers. The PC Power & Cooling Silencer 760 is meant to deliver high quality power and with sufficient power output to drive the latest graphic cards on the market. PC Power & Cooling packs the Silencer 760 with features, connections, and a great warranty. The Silencer power supplies have always been known for their excellent performance and reliability, so read on as we put the PPCS760 through our testing methodology and find out if this new PSU is worthy of the Silencer title."

Corsair AX1200 1200W Power Supply Review
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 5:29P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Six years ago, loading a true enthusiast machine down with all the hardware you could muster meant that you were pulling no more than 600W-700W, and finding a power supply to handle that kind of load was nearly impossible. Since then we've seen a huge change in the hardware that enthusiasts utilize in their rigs. SLI brought about multi-GPU systems that required more power than ever. While you have your selection of vendors for motherboards, memory, storage, and more, finding a power supply to fit the bill of such a machine produces few options. The last 12-18 months have brought some more selections, such as the Corsair Professional Series AX1200 that we are taking a look at today. The AX1200 is Corsair's flagship power supply. It is the biggest, meanest beast that they offer."

FSP Aurum 700W Power Supply Review

Posted by: STAFF
With four Hybrid Synergy 12V rails, 105 °C Japanese made primary capacitors, MIA (Multiple Intelligence Ability) processor, active PFC (power factor correction), 80 Plus Gold certification (over 90% efficiency) and a five-year warranty the Aurum series of power supply units manufactured by the FSP Group maybe small in size but they are a force to be reckoned with.

Belkin Conserve Insight and Conserve Socket (Energy Conservation)
     Fri, Mar 11 2011 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A few years removed from the start of the economic crisis, people are still experiencing the effects to this day, but thankfully things are starting to slowly improve. When something of this extent hits, people come to realize that they need to alter their lifestyles in order to adapt to the economic crisis. What this means varies from person to person, although it could mean saving a little money by denying yourself that Starbucks coffee or Tim Horton’s donut, which is a blessing in disguise (health wise). Or perhaps it’s even more drastic than that, by forgoing your monthly cable or satellite TV bill, in exchange for going with OTA (over-the-air) HD instead, something that ModSynergy.com has covered in the past with reviews pertaining to HDTV antennas and giving you information on the digital ATSC standard. Simply put, people are becoming money conscious as they know the state of their economy. Saving money can be motivating and fun too, almost making it such as a game to play. This review will introduce you a product that gives this impression. Today I review the Belkin Insight Energy Use Monitor and the Belkin Conserve Socket Power Timer."

OCZ ZX Series 850W power supply review
     Fri, Mar 11 2011 | 12:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until someone can effectively convince me otherwise, I am not an environmentalist. Let me clarify before we begin that the probability of convincing me otherwise is zero, so please do not even try. And no, egging my house will not change my mind. I can assure you I will promptly dial 911. On the other hand, don't take me wrong and label me as someone who don't care about the environment -- I do and will continue to do my part in recycling and the such. It is just I am not about to go out of my way just to 'go green'. Admittedly, I drive an 8th generation Honda Civic, and routinely get over 40 US MPG on average with some hypermiling techniques. But I do that not because I want to protect the environment per se. I just happen to really like my wallet. You know, using less gas saves me money. I like that. And let's be honest here -- do you think companies actually reduce their product packaging out of the goodness of their own hearts to save the earth? No, they're just saving money on reduced packaging so they can make more money; at the same time advertise they are being green. Therefore, let's deal with it: This is called killing two birds with one stone. At this point, you may be wondering what my whole little rant on being environmental has to do with our OCZ ZX Series 850W article today. In fact, this has everything to do with it. The latest flagship in OCZ's line of computer power supplies is unsurprisingly another 80 Plus Gold certified unit, meaning it is at least 87%, 90%, 87% efficient at 20%, 50%, and 100% load, respectively. In fact, every power supply we have looked at since August last year were Gold certified. Other than saying this is a very 'green' power supply, for most computer enthusiasts, this means it is yet another high performance PSU built with top notch components inside. Being efficient also means less heat is generated for a quieter operation in conjunction with improved thermal management inside your chassis. Oh yeah, you get to save some electricity and reduce your next utility bill. The best of both worlds? Sounds like a winner to me. So whether you are someone who cares about the environment or want maximum performance, we opened up an OCZ ZX Series 850W power supply for our report today. Read on to see what we have found!

Corsair TX850 V2 and TX750 V2 Power Supplies Review
     Tue, Mar 08 2011 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On our test bench are two models from Corsairs new TX V2 range of enthusiast PSUs. The TX V2 range goes through the same certification as the modular AX and HX range of PSUs that Corsair use for their high end products but feature fixed cables rather than modular versions which gives the V2 a better price to performance ratio. Lets find out if Corsair can keep up their fantastic record for high quality power supplies."
