Default Chieftec's Nitro 88+ Series 80PLUS Silver

There are four models:
  • SPS-650C 52A (only 2 PCI-e power connectors...)
  • SPS-750C 60A (4 PCI-e power connectors)
  • SPS-850C 68A (4 PCI-e power connectors, 6 would be nice)
  • SPS-1000C 80A (4 PCI-e power connectors )

Think they are CWT DSG's.


The also launch the A-85 Serie, six models.
  • CTB-350S 22,5A
  • CTB-400S 25A
  • CTB-450S 29A
  • CTB-500S 33A
  • CTB-550S 38A
  • CTB-650S 46A
crmaris already reviewed the 500W

Sirtec



And last the iArena Series
  • GPA-350S
  • GPA-400S
  • GPA-450S
  • GPA-500S
230V only, think it's CWT DSAII (same as the Enermax NAXN Tomahawk II?)
  • GPA-350S8
  • GPA-400S8
  • GPA-450S8
  • GPA-500S8
80PLUS(?), again CWT DSAII?

Woah, haven't seen plain grey PSUs for a while. They all seem to be matte black these days

80+ Silver? Chieftec has probably slept too long.

It mostly reminds me of cheap, generic PSUs taking out the rest of the system with their during their fiery death. Unless it's a Deer. Then it would just kill the system while pretending to still be okay itself, ready to strike again.

I got nothing against plain grey for PSU if I know the contents are fine, it just brings back bad memories

Hey Tinpoint you are making me drool with these load testers

Don't they have an environmental chamber to lend you at Be Quiet's labs?

recently I tested a PSU and in normal temperatures all were fine and it had perfect ripple suppression. Hoever, when I raised the temperature to 45 C ambient then all hell broke loose. At 10-60% load I saw even 180mV ripple at +12V!!! instead of 30mV I had at room temps (also ripple in the minor rails was excessive). The weird thing is that at 80 and 100% load ripple was normal even with 50C ambient.

Bottomline. A hot box some times makes a huge difference. Otherwise the above PSU would flew under the radar.
