Thermaltake comes to us today with an exciting new product. One that I have personally been waiting for ever since Corsair came along and dropped the AX860i at our doorsteps. Folks, we now have a second 850 watt class unit on the market able to be monitored and controlled via software through a USB port. Let's get right to it and see if this bad boy has what it takes to topple Corsair off the throne.
As another Halloween approaches, EVGA comes to us with what they hope is their next big thing: the Supernova P2 series at 1000 watts. I'm about to find out if this unit is a trick or a treat. Care to join me?
It's time... today, we're looking at the third and smallest unit in Cooler Master's brand new V series line of units. At 700 watts, this unit is still rated as 80 Plus Gold and is still fully modular. We're about to find out if it is able to overachieve just like its big brothers.
Cougar is back today with a brand new 850 watt entry into the value segment. Called the CMX version three, this unit promises high efficiency with excellent performance. I'm going to see how it does. Care to join me?
Antec has thrown a special challenge my way today. This will be two reviews in one... I'm looking at both the new HCG-750M semi modular power supply and a case to go with it: the GX-700. Both of these are intended for the budget minded consumer. Let's get right to it.
Seasonic is arguably at the top of their game right now. When it comes to the best of the best units on the market, their name springs instantly to mind. But what about the more value oriented segment of the market? What if you can't afford the latest whiz-bang 80 Plus Platinum unit? Seasonic would like to help you there, too, with the new M12 II Evo Edition 850 watt unit. This is a Bronze certified DC-DC regulated design that looks to not break the bank.
Today, we're going to look at something we haven't seen before in any incarnation - High Power's brand new Astro PT design. Weighing in at 700 watts, this is the unit that recently won an award at Computex in 2012 for design and innovation. Let's waste no time at all and find out just how innovative this little 80 Plus Platinum unit really is.
Coolermaster's been on a bit of a roll lately. After partnering up with Seasonic, they released several awesome new V series units and instantly upped their game to a new level. Today, I'm looking at one of their new bargain units, the GX II 750 watt model. You may remember the original GX series unit turning out to be a little underwhelming. But that was then and this is now. Let's see if the new guy is improved enough to warrant a buy this time out.
Our latest power supply target for reviewing is the Antec HCP-850 Platinum, an updated and more efficient version of the original High Current Pro 850 watt unit. In the time since that unit came out, the competition from the likes of Seasonic, Corsair and Super Flower to name a few has only gotten stronger and stronger. Does Antec still have what it takes to compete in an increasingly cutthroat market? I don't know yet, but I'm going to find out.
EVGA's sent us quite a few awesome power supplies lately, haven't they? The flagship NEX1500 notwithstanding, the Supernova G2 series has been just amazing so far. But what if you have no money for something that awesome, or need for something that big? EVGA wants to help you out there, too, with the 500B. The B stands for Bronze efficiency, so we'd best see if it lives up to that. Come on in.
