Once in a while, something comes along in the power supply world that promises not only the moon, but the rest of the solar system as well. Today's review unit looks to break new ground not just for efficiency, but for offering sheer mind melting power with the kind of stability that was unheard of back when I started reviewing power supplies. People, today's review unit is the brand new 80 Plus Titanium Corsair AX1500i. Let's see if it lives up to our rather lofty expectations.
It's Easter week, and children everywhere are enjoying handfuls upon handfuls of candy. I don't have any candy to share with you guys, so I'm going to give you a look at another kind of treat from EVGA: the Supernova G2 850 watt unit. This unit promises to be even better than a chocolate overdose, if that's possible.
Deepcool comes to us again with their new flagship model in the Quanta line of units: the DQ1250. This is our second look at the offerings from this brand new entrant into the power supply arena, and you may recall the 750W model doing pretty well for itself. Let's see if the same is true of this 1250 watt 80 Plus Platinum monster of a unit.
Back when I first reviewed the brand new Antec HCP Platinum line of units, all that was available to me was the 850 watt model. Which, I might add, completely obliterated the competition with its outstanding performance. Afterwards, my readers had only one question: when would I review the 1300 watt model. Good peoples of the Internet, the day has arrived.
We've been looking at a lot of 700-800 watt units lately, haven't we? Well, I see no harm in taking a peek at one more. This time, we'll dig deep and peel back the layers of a new Enermax product, the Revolution XT 730 watt. This is a semi-modular 80 Plus Gold unit that should give us some decent performance.
Once in a while, a completely random and unknown product comes in for review. Today, I'm looking at a brand new offering from Deepcool, a company formerly known for cooling solutions, who now wants to make a splash in the power supply business. But do they have what it takes to be competitive in a market dominated by the likes of Seasonic, Antec, Enermax, and Corsair? The Quanta DQ750 is here to answer that very question.
Super Flower comes to us today with their Leadex Gold 750 watt model today. We've already seen that this platform is nigh unbeatable at higher power levels, but what about the low end of the scale? Will it turn out to be better or worse or the same? Let's find out.
Not long ago, we took a look at our first RM series unit from Corsair, the RM650. Today, we'll be looking at big brother - the 850 watt model. This is a unit that bears very little in common with its smaller sibling, as it is a completely different platform from a completely different OEM. Let's have at it.
Most of the power supplies we review here are the standard full sized PS2 form factor. You know, the ones that go into 99.9% of the cases that are sold today. But these do come in smaller packages, like the SFX form factor. For my first review of 2014, I'm looking at Silverstone's brand new ST30SF. This is a tiny little SFX unit that somehow manages to boast a semi-fanless design capable of full power operation to fifty degrees.
