We’ve been huge fans of be quiet’s Dark Power Pro power supply series since we were first introduced to it a few years ago. It is no wonder that be quiet! is Germany’s number 1 power supply manufacturer. The Dark Power Pro 11 takes the Dark Power Pro series to the next level by adding new power conversion topology that delivers 80PLUS Platinum performance, and an unparalleled array of enhancements that augment this unit’s compatibility, convenience of use, reliability, and safety. Be quiet says that this unit is the most technologically-advanced power supply they’ve ever built! The unit also features a semi-modular design so you only use the cables you need, a 135 mm SilentWings 3 fan so you know it is going to be quiet, and an overclocking key which allows switchover between quadruple independent 12V-rail mode and high-performance single-rail operation. The unit comes in wattages 550W – 1200W and today we are taking a look at the 850W unit, let’s see what it can do!
Cooler Master first launched its V-Series power supplies with the semi-modular series that featured an 80 Plus Gold certification and a semi-modular cable design.

These power supplies feature 100% high quality Japanese capacitors, a 3D circuit design, Cooler Master’s own Silencio FP fan, a flat cable design and come with a 5-year warranty. The V-Series comes in 550W, 650W, 750W, 850W, and 1000W units, today we will be taking a look at the 750W which sits right in the middle of the V-Series. Let’s see what it can do!

When it comes to power supplies there are always a few names I always recommend and Corsair is typically at the top of my list. I still find it quite impressive that Corsair has transitioned from a memory to producing some of the best cases, power supplies, AiO watercoolers and more. Corsair’s HXi Series power supplies and designed with gamers and enthusiasts in mind. Each HXi model features 80PLUS Platinum certification, Corsair Link compatibility, and a Zero RPM fan which means it will not even spin up at medium and low loads. Today we will be taking a look at the flagship unit the HX1200i, which if you can guess is the 1200W unit. Let’s jump in!
Corsair has really made a name for themselves in the power supply market over the past few years. This is mainly because of their high-end AX and HX series, but at the end of the day not everyone needs a super high-end power supply. Corsair’s CS series is marketed more towards the typical user / builder who is looking for low energy use and easy installation. Today we are taking a look at the CS850M which is an 80PLUS Gold certified power supply. It also features flat modular cables and a 3-year warranty. Does this power supply hold the same high-quality and performance that we’ve seen from other Corsair power supplies? Let’s take a look!

It has been quite a while since we have heard anything about Google’s Project Ara. This is of course Google’s ambitious fully modular smartphone project. The idea behind it is that users can select each part of their phone (screen, camera, battery, etc) and create a perfect smartphone to fit their needs. Well it looks like Google is moving along with the project and will be creating an online store, much like Google Play for the device.
