Default Computex 2014

Corsair HXi Series PSUs Launching in August
Quote:
Ahead of Computex 2014, Corsair has launched a new line of power supplies, the HXi Series, which includes 750, 850 and 1000 watt models. They will be made available in August for $169.99, $189.99 and $229.99 respectively.

A list of specifications reveal an 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency, a fully modular DC cable set, and 100 percent Japanese electrolytic capacitors rated at 105 degrees Celsius. The list also shows a Zero-RPM fan mode for silent operation during slow and medium modes, and a 140mm fluid dynamic bearing fan.

"The ultra-efficient design found within the HXi Series generates minimal heat and runs exceptionally quiet, even when delivering high levels of power," states the PR. "The PSUs meet the stringent requirements for 80 PLUS Platinum certification by achieving greater than 92 percent energy efficiency — reducing both energy waste and the electrical bill."

The list of specifications also reveals a continuous power rated at 50 degrees Celsius. There’s even Corsair Link support, which is desktop software that monitors in real time "efficiency, voltages, power output, temperature, and fan speed plus user customizable setting of rail modes and fan speed."

"When we launched the first PSUs in 2006, the HX Series redefined what a PC PSU should be, raising the bar for PSU quality and performance and making them a long-trusted favorite of PC enthusiasts,” said Aaron Neal, product manager of PSUs at Corsair. “The new HXi PSUs build on that legacy."

Again, the PSUs will launch in August, so stay tuned for more details.

Default be quiet! Straight Power 10 (CM)

Quote:
On the power supply front Be Quiet! has two new models, the Straight Power 10 and the Straight Power 10 CM (cable management), featuring their new 135mm Silent Wings 3 fan. The fan has an upgraded motor to reduce the noise, and Be Quiet are working on a consumer model aside from their power supply designs. For the PSUs, they will be rated at 80 PLUS Gold and offered in 400W-700W for the Straight Power 10 and 500-800W for the Straight Power 10 CM. The later should be coming to North America, whereas the former has focus in other markets.

The E10 should be way better regarding voltage regulation than E9. HXi sounds really promising. Let's hope it's up to Corsairs traditional standards.

Funny (or sad) thing is E8 already had DC-DC, so in a way E9 was a step back.

Smile Cooler Master Designs PSU that Talks Directly with Your Smartphone

Quote:
In a bid to take on Corsair's AXi and HXi line of PSUs that can interface with your PC over USB, letting you monitor and manage some of their specs over Corsair Link software, Cooler Master is giving final touches to its own line of high-end smart PSUs, beginning with the Digital 1200. Cooler Master's unique selling point here is Bluetooth direct access. The PSU is outfitted with a WLAN module of its own, letting your smartphone or tablet access it over Bluetooth. Cooler Master will have PSU monitoring and configuration apps on Google Play and the App Store. The app lets you monitor power consumption, efficiency, and temperatures, and tweak PSU fan speeds on the fly. The Digital 1200, as its name suggests, is a 1200-Watt PSU that boasts of 80 Plus Titanium efficiency. It features fully modular cabling, with enough wiring to drive gaming PC builds with 2 to 3 graphics cards in multi-GPU configurations. This PSU's most obvious advantage over Corsair Link, is its lack of dependency on your OS, and stability of your system.
