Seasonic is continuing its evolution of the Prime platform by taking a 600 watt version and making it fanless today. Will it be as awesome as all the other Prime units? There's only one way to find out.
I'm looking under the hood of another beast of a unit today in the Enermax MaxTytan 1250 watt model. This is the top of the line Titanium unit for Enermax, and I'm excited to see how it holds up against some very strong competition.
Many moons ago, Corsair rocked the power supply world with the release of the AX1500i... a very impressive and also very expensive piece of hardware that showed just what this company was capable of. But that was then and this is now. Corsair's come back to the table today with another beast of a flagship to succeed that model in the AX1600i. This unit comes with a lot of design improvements inside, particularly in the PFC section. Let's see if it's worthy of carrying the Corsair torch for a few more years.
Let's look at another one of Seasonic's Prime Ultra units today. This time, it'll be the Platinum 1kW variant of the platform, where Seasonic promises all the performance we came to expect with the old unit, except without those meddlesome in cable capacitors. Let's see what happens.
For my second review of 2018, we'll be revisiting the products of Hungarian company Kolink. Today, it'll be the 1500 watt Continuum model under the microscope. Let's see if this unit makes more of an impression on us.
I've decided to start the New Year by reviewing something only slightly less incandescent than the Great White North itself, the new Corsair RMX White 850 watt unit. This unit promises all we came to like about the original RM850x packaged with a nifty looking white and black color scheme with individual sleeving on its white fully modular cables. Let's find out now if Corsair's still bringing the goods.
I can see no better way to close out 2017 than to review another one of Seasonic's latest and greatest units, the flagship of the new Prime Ultra line of units. Folks, meet the 1000 watt Prime Ultra Titanium.
Not too long ago, we saw Silverstone release a new line of SFX units that promised to be good quality, small, and silent. We've already seen what the larger 650W model can do, so how about we check out the 500W version?
Seasonic has been on a real winning streak for a few years now. It seems like each time we see them, they bring a little better performance each time. Now, they're freshening up the successful Prime line of units and calling them Prime Ultra. I have the 650W Titanium variant in front of me. Let's see what improved this time.
We're taking another look at the products of Bitfenix today, a company with very little market presence outside Europe. On tap for this week - the Formula Gold 750 watt model. This is a budget oriented model that promises to be as no frills as possible, yet with enough performance to do a good job.
