High Power comes to us today with a beast of a unit - an 80 Plus Gold fully modular unit called the Astro GD 1200 watt. Let's see if this unit can take on the latest and greatest as I mercilessly throw it under the wheels of the load testing bus. High Power units haven't always reviewed well here at the site, and I'm anxious to see how this one does.
Silverstone comes to us today looking to further push the limits of big power in small spaces. Today, I'm looking at the brand new SFX form factor SX600-G, an 80 Plus Gold unit that happens to be fully modular, somehow. Given that the unit in question could probably hide behind a bottle of ketchup, I really wonder if this unit can possibly give us the performance we want to see from it.
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.
