BeQuiet Dark Power PRO 850 Watt PSU review
Posted by: Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 01/30/2007 02:00 PM [ 0 comment(s) ]
The last time I received a power supply from them I received an email back from a friend working in the graphics card industry. He said "Hilbert, I just bought one of these and you were 100% right. I'm really glad I bought one." So for Listan it's difficult to improve an already great product I figured. Hmm, nope! In the ever-growing demand of power consumption they have yet again released an affordable power supply, this time with a 850 Watt rating yet for a price that's stunning. Next to that it's modular, has high energy efficiency, is quite silent and will fit in any case due to it's small size opposed to the Kilowatt PSU's we recently have seen.

Zippy/Emacs 500w & 720w PSUs

Zippy have given their PSUs a face lift, if you like. They have been updated to move with the times. Zippy have introduced a range of PSUs with the title of "Gaming Power," they have been given a chic black finish and the cables have been sleeved. Inside, however, are still the same core components that have earned Zippy their excellent reputation in the server market.

BeQuiet! Dark Power Pro 600 Watt PSU
Posted by: Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 08/18/2006 06:00 AM [ 0 comment(s) ]
Sound levels coming from your PSU. The high rated PSU's typically have two fans and a lot of manufacturers did not pay attention to all the noise a PC makes these days. So the third factor was utilizing silent high-performance fans preferably with smart-fan technology (variably fan speeds based on heat). And with these factors in mind we land at a product line called BeQuiet! As the name suggests we do not expect this product to make heaps of sound. The product is named mysteriously the "Dark power Pro". We'll be testing the 600 Watt model to see if it can manage a high-end system with NVIDIA SLI technology.

We recently reviewed BeQuiet's Dark Power Pro 600 Watt PSU and were very impressed with it. When the company contacted us and asked us if we wanted to review their new line of power supplies, we just couldn't say no.
Enermax Galaxy 1000 Watt PSU

Now quite frankly I don't like where we are heading, power consumption of PC's is really getting out of hand. We need to start thinking about mother nature a little as next to our power bills .. this can't be healthy. Luckily we see a strong movement in the processor industry where we start to see performance to watt ratio's. Power consumption is getting more and more awareness. With that in mind today our first ever 1000 Watt power supply is being published.
SilverStone 750 Watt ATX Power Supply
Posted by: Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 06/26/2006 06:00 AM [ 0 comment(s) ]
Today we will have a look at the Zeus 750 Watt continuous power supply from Silverstone. A really awe-inspiring power supply with four (yes four) +12 Volts rails and which is also an SLI ready power supply. We'll put it to the test buy using our quad SLI setup. The new Zeus is cool, literally, as up to 750W it'll maintain a temperature of 50°C. You get 60 AMPs combined (over 700W) for these four +12V rails alone, making the ST75ZF capable of powering any top of the line system available today and the near future.
Nextherm PSU460 Power Supply

The power supply unit is the part of the computer that most people buy without thinking or researching about it and by only looking at the wattage number. The Power Supply is actually a crucial part of the whole system as that is responsible for providing with the electronics with a constant, steady and clean current for them to be able to function without any hiccups. Also, the wattage number on a power supply is almost always a misleading number. A buyer must check with the total combined wattage that can be provided and not the peak number. Also, what are most important are the amps the PSU can provide.
Ultra X-Finity 2nd Gen 500w PSU w/ Active PFC
Posted by: Dave Crewe on: 05/05/2006 06:00 AM [ 0 comment(s) ]
The unit itself isn't anywhere near as flash as the X-Connect. It has a more mature look to it. There are no windows or UV, not even LEDs, and the finish is simply a matt black. Once again, whether you like this is purely a matter of taste. I personally think this look is a more fitting look for a power supply. I'm not sure why, but Ultra decided to give the APFC model a completely different look to the other X-Finity 2nd gens, which all have highly polished and "bling" style finishes. This unit features an industrial theme.
