Two weeks ago, we had a look at the first and smallest unit in Corsair's new HXi line of power supplies. Enabled with Corsair Link, that unit proved itself a solid little unit indeed. It's time to go two sizes up from there and see how the 1kW unit behaves. Come on in, won't you?
We've been looking at a lot of EVGA power supplies lately as that company continues to build momentum in the power supply market. So far, they've all been good units. Today, I have the 750W B2 under the magnifying glass... let's find out where this unit fits into the overall scheme of things.
Corsair comes to us today bearing a new and improved HX series power supply, the HX750i. Taking the old HX750, upping the efficiency to Platinum level, and adding Corsair Link support, this promises to be a welcome improvement and update to the Corsair power supply line.
It's been a couple years now since EVGA sought to set the world of power supplies on fire with their NEX1500. While I liked that unit, I didn't quite think it was the groundbreaking unit EVGA was really going for. Recently, Corsair came out with the AX1500i, which showed us all what an ultra high powered unit looked like when done right. But EVGA has not been resting on their laurels. Today, I have their first ever 1600 watt unit on the load testers. Does this beast of a unit improve on the old NEX1500? Can it possibly compete with the elite AX1500i? Can it do it for less money than either one of those units? I'm going to find out.
It's been some time now since I reviewed the original and completely mind blowing Seasonic X-1250. In that time, Seasonic has worked hard to stay up to date and current in the marketplace. Today, I'm looking at the newest version of the X-1250, named the SS-1250XM2. How can Seasonic possibly improve on something that remains nearly untouchable in terms of performance? We're about to find out.
EVGA has to be happy with their place in the power supply market right now. They took an awesome platform and ran with it, and now everyone else has to play catch-up. Today, I'm looking at the Supernova P2 1200 watt unit. It seems a foregone conclusion at this point that it will be just as awesome as ever, but why don't we just check it out anyway to be certain?
It's not too often that I get a fanless unit in to review, but that's exactly what I have on my plate for today. Silverstone's brought me their newest member of the Nightjar family, the NJ520. It's time to put the load tester to work.
Rosewill comes to us today with a modular version of their Capstone 1000 watt unit. It's been quite some time since I had one of their units in the lab, so I'm looking forward to this one. Let's see what it's all about.
Recently, we forked out some cash out of our own pockets to see what happens when we actually go out and buy cheap units companies won't, don't, or can't send us from retailers directly. As a result, we ended up with two units, the first of which was the EVGA 500W reviewed not long ago. Today's test subject is the second of those units, the Cooler Master Elite V2 550W unit. Let's see if it brings the goods.
Seasonic has been on such an amazing roll these past few years. One after another, it's been amazing power supply after amazing power supply. But things can change, particularly in this industry. You've got to stay on your toes to stay on top of the game. Let's see if Seasonic is still bringing the awesome as I test their new Platinum 1200W unit.
