Diablotek isn’t a well-known company, but it has a surprising amount of products in their inventory. A lot of which consist of power supplies. We will be looking at their latest power supply line, the UL Series power supplies, more specifically the 575W version. This affordable gaming power supply is enough to power your gaming computer, but for those with higher end systems you might want to check out the 675W or 775W models. Read on further to see how well it performs.
Today we’ll be checking out a fully modular power supply recently released by Cooler Master. The Silent Pro Hybrid 1050W power supply is 80PLUS GOLD certified, has a 200W fanless mode and even comes equipped with its own fan controller. This is a first for Cooler Master and is even available in two other models, 850W and 1300W. Read on further to see how well the 1050W version performed.

This new line of power supplies is Cooler Master’s first fully modular power supply series with integrated dual 7V fan ports. The power supply also comes with a neat fan controller. Read on to check out our unboxing video and for more information on the power supply!
Almost everyone wants the quietest yet most powerful computer possible. Most components generate noise because of the fans cooling them, or because of moving parts. Obviously, solid state drives have eliminated the necessity for moving parts for storage and liquid cooling can replace fans for most components. However, there’s still one pesky component which still generates noise: the high wattage power supply unit. Fanless PSUs have been around for a while, but they’re generally lower wattage and meant for business machines or ultra-efficient HTPCs.
In Win, the company that brought you many different types of cases in the past is now upgrading one of its power supply series into the 80PLUS age. The Commander II series of power supplies, the successor to the original Commander, are available in three different models: 750W, 850W and the 1200W, which we have to review today. All three models are 80PLUS Bronze certified, have an army green color scheme and a silent 135mm fan in them.
The thing that certainly stands out the most about Kingwin’s Lazer Platinum Power Supply is certainly the 80 Plus Platinum certification printed right on the front of the box. Platinum is the highest level of CSCI certification, which means, in a nutshell, that it one of the most efficient PSU’s on the market and will help your PC’s lifespan last longer with greatly reduced heat.
Another great feature is the ECO Intelligent Thermal Control System, which will help keep maximum cooling performance while maintaining minimal fan noise by preventing fan rotation, unless the temperature reaches around 70 Degrees Celsius. The unit was also designed with high end GPU performance in mind with two 6 Pin and two 6+2 Pin PCI connections. Let’s take a look.
Enermax enters the heavyweight class with its new MaxRevo, high-performance PSU specially designed for multi-GPU systems, industrial PC, workstations and servers. It complies with the strictest standards for server PSU, and is equipped with six powerful 12V rails for a safe and stable supply of power to today’s high-end systems with full modular design for easy customized use for various peripheral GPU settings.
ThinkComputers last reviewed a power supply unit from primarily cooling company Zalman in 2008, the ZM850-HP. Now, we have in our hands a much newer model building upon three years of innovation and standardization: the ZM1000-HP Plus. The ZM1000-HP Plus features a dual heatpipe cooling system, lots of connectors, modular cables, and 80PLUS Silver certification for efficiency. See how the unit measures up in this review.
Kingwin is a company we have not heard much from in the past year. Recently they have released a new series of power supplies called the Lazer Gold Series. These power supplies are available in 550W, 700W, 850W and 1000W sizes and are 80PLUS Gold certified meaning they will run at least 87% efficient between 20% and 100% load and 90% efficient at 50% load. These power supplies also feature support for the latest processors and graphics cards, an active PFC, modular cables and a 140mm blue LED fan. Today we will be taking a look at the 1000W version, let’s see if it performs up to our expectations.
Antec is a staple in the power supply market around the world. Its Earthwatts line was introduced last year to target the green computing market. This line is designed to be sans no-frills, aside from partial modularity and 80PLUS certification. This SLI-certified, quad-12V-rail unit sports plenty of connectivity for its wattage, with nine SATA and nine device connectors in addition to its PCI-Express cables. ThinkComputers takes a look at this unit in this review.
