PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 600W power supply
Back in 1985, Doug Dodson revolutionized the computer aftermarket/DIY power supply market segment by offering products that were quite a bit more than the drab gray box that hardly anyone seemed to care about. In 1986 Doug's company, PC Power & Cooling, was the first to introduce a "low noise" power supply (the Silencer 150W) and the first to introduce a "high performance" power supply (the Turbo-Cool 200W).

That brings us to now. A few days ago, OCZ dropped me a line and asked me if I wanted to review the new PC Power & Cooling Silencer MkIII power supply.  This power supply comes in a 400W, 500W and a 600W.  They will be sending me the 600W.

Today's power supply comes to us from OCZ. The ZT Series is a fully modular, 80 Plus Bronze certified power supply, available in 550W, 650W and 750W. We're going to have a look at the 750W today.

Thortech Thunderbolt 1000W power supply
GeIL, or "Golden Emperor International Limited", is a company that has been in the computer memory business since 1993. At Computex 2010, GeIL announced their own line of power supply products under the Thortech subsidiary. Not long ago, I reviewed a "Thunderbolt 1200W". And not to long before that, Tazz reviewed the "Thunderbolt 850W" power supply which includes a 5.25" bay display that shows the power supply's voltages, wattages, fan speed and temperature. Today, we get to have a look at the Thortech Thunderbolt 1000W power supply. It's 200W less than the 1200W version, costs a few bucks less, yet has all of the same connectors as the 1200W.

Corsair TX550M 550W
Recently, Corsair revamped their Enthusiast Series with a line of brand new modular units. I already took a peek at one of these units in the TX750M. Today, I'm going to have a look at another one to see if there are any major changes down at the 550W level. Folks, let's take a look at the TX550M.

Coolermaster Silent Pro Hybrid 1050W
Here's a scenario for you: you've been a longtime member of a certain online forum, and people keep asking you how to do the 7 volt trick for fans. Other people jump in after you post how to do it, arguing that you really shouldn't be using the 5V rail as a ground for your fans. Well, what's the solution then? No power supply on the market comes with a 7V rail!

Until now. Coolermaster decided to come up with a new line of units that do, in fact, have a 7V rail. An evolution of the Silent Pro Gold line, they also include such goodies as an external fan controller and full modularity. I'm looking at one of these units today, the 1050W middleman. Let's waste no time and see how it works.

Today's power supply comes to us from "Rosewill", the "in-house brand" for Newegg.

The "Lightning" series consists of three semi-modular power supplies: an 800W, 1000W and 1300W. Today we're having a look at the 1300W.

Silverstone ST50NF Fanless 500W
It's become a trend lately. More and more often, I'm seeing units come through here that are higher efficiency than ever, and many of these are turning up without fans. Silverstone is the latest company to float one of these fanless units my way in the ST50NF. You may recall that I once had a look at another fanless unit from these folks in the Etasis built ST45NF. Let's find out if this newer, higher efficiency fanless unit has what it takes to compete these days.

Enermax Platimax 1200W
Not too long ago, Enermax contacted us with an opportunity to review their new 80 Plus Platinum certified, fully modular power supply, the Platypus... err... sorry.. The Platimax. The Platimax is an upgrade over Enermax's 80 Plus Gold effort, the MaxRevo. Needless to say, we wanted the chance to see if the Platypus.. sorry... Platimax performed at least as well as the MaxRevo, but with better efficiency.

Kingwin Stryker Fanless 500W
Not very long ago, I took a look at a fanless power supply from Superflower that turned out to be the bee's knees when it came to providing stable power at very high efficiency without so much as a cooling fan to help it. At the time, I wished and pined for this unit to come to the North American market, since you cannot buy any Superflower retail units on this continent. Well, Kingwin has granted my wish. They are now offering their own version of this awesome unit which goes by the name Stryker. Let's see if anything has changed about the design.
