It has been a while since I've pitched in on this side of the site, but I plan on trying to take a bit of the load off of OklahomaWolf. We don't want to overwork him. So to start things off we have had a few units show up here in the office from XFX. Believe it or not, it has been 1235 days since our last XFX fix here at JonnyGURU.com. I knew it had been a while, but I really didn't think it had been 3 years, 4 months, and 19 days. The first unit out of the box is the XFX TS 650, so let's get things rolling.
We've been reviewing a ton of EVGA units lately. This company has seemingly flooded the market with their units, and it's hard to remember that they used to be known for only video cards and motherboards. Today, I'm looking at a unit that's been flying under the radar at most review sites: the G1 1000 watt model, also known as the 1000G.
Recently, we took a peek at the budget minded Corsair CX750M. It turned out to be a somewhat long in the tooth unit that didn't hold up all that well against the competition. But what about the 850W model? Are all CX units created the same? It's my intention to find out today.
It's been a few months since the last time we saw either an Enermax unit or a fanless unit come through here. Today, that dry spell ends on both counts as we take a look at the very promising Enermax Digifanless 550 watt unit. This is a fanless 80 Plus Platinum unit that recently turned some heads at Computex. And I have one. Let's take a look.
Our adventure through the lands of EVGA continues today with my fourth look at the Supernova GS line of units geared for the silent computing crowd. I'm especially curious about this one, as what I've seen of the insides around the net doesn't look to be a platform I'm familiar with. It's certainly not the same one used in the higher powered units we've already seen.
Not too long ago, Andyson came in here with a brand new 1200 watt 80 Plus Platinum unit that really impressed me. As if that wasn't enough, no sooner had the review gone online than Andyson was sending me emails asking if I wanted to have a look at one of their brand new Titanium units. Of course, I said yes. Folks, this is only my third Titanium level unit ever... let's see what it's made of.
Not too long ago, it was discovered that Corsair had made some changes to their RM series lineup. The old Chicony built units were being discontinued and replaced with a newer platform. For a while, this was just a rumor going around. But folks, the rumor happens to be true. And I just happen to have one of the newer RM850 units here in front of me now.
We've been taking a look at a lot of EVGA units lately. Not too long ago, we looked at their brand new GS 1050 watt unit, and found it to be fantastic. Today, we're checking out a 1kW 80 Plus Platinum version of that unit. Let's see what happens.
Folks, we have a new subject to study today, and it comes all the way from Poland. The SilentiumPC Supremo M1 Gold 550W promises to be a good, stable unit that won't break the bank while still giving you such things as semi-modularity and high efficiency.
Recently, I had a look at a budget power supply from Corsair called the CX750M. Long story short, I came away from that review feeling more than a bit underwhelmed with that unit, positing that perhaps the CS series would make for a more competitive product in today's world. Folks, I have a CS850M in front of me right now and I have every intention of finding out if it really is the budget unit you should go for.
