    Default So where's the thread? (BFG ES-800 discussion)

    How did it do? Well, personally this is probably the most impressive SMPS design I've seen to date. I mean, it stays over 80% efficient at all loads and can run with the 12V rails maxed out and no 3.3V/5V load. How impressive is that?
    Read on for all the juicy details. And when finished there, take a look over at Hardware Canucks, where SKYMTL also takes a look at this groundbreaking power supply.
    Looks like a real winner for BFG
    Congrats to jG for the great job. Should be available April according to HWC, looking forward to it.
    Anything else we might see included in the end product?

    That is a big e-penis right there....

    I already bought a Corsair HX620....I might have to make that my backup when this sucker comes out....maybe I will get that Woodbutcher guy over at Anandtech to make it modular for me

    It's really too bad about the high ripple on the 5V rail and the so-high-it's-only-barely-within-spec ripple on the 3.3V rail; if it wasn't for those, this would be just about perfect.

    Who pushes their 3.3V rail that far anyways?

    I've always been wondering....

    Yeah - the 3.3V/5V ripple doesn't really bother me. It's a lot like CWT's 1kW+ PUC designs... it's just not meant to power old P3's
