Corsair has extended its portfolio of the power supplies with the introduction of the latest RM Series. The new RM Series will be silent functioning devices as the fans will start buzzing only if the units of power supplies are under a heavy load.
Over the past couple of months we have been taking a look at Fractal Design’s line of power supplies. We started with the high-end Newton R3, we then moved down the line to the Tesla R2 and now we have the budget and mainstream Integra R2 750W. This power supply is currently selling for $89.99 at my favorite online retailer. It features a 80PLUS Bronze certification, a silent temperature controlled fan and the great styling we know from Fractal Design. This power supply is a great choice for anyone who is on a budget for a power supply, especially if you are not looking for a modular power supply. Let’s take a look…
Not that long ago we took a look at our first power supply from Fractal Design, the Newton R3 600W. While that unit sits as Fractal Design’s top tier power supply today we are checking out one of their more mainstream units the Telsa R2 650W power supply. While this power supply is not modular it still features an 80PLUS Gold certification, single 12V rail, and a temperature controlled 135mm cooling fan. The Tesla R2 still has the same great looks we saw on the Newton R3, but can it perform? Read on as we find out!
be quiet! is a new company to us here at ThinkComputers. We’ve seen their products over the past year, but finally caught up with them at CES and were rather impressed with what they showed us. Now we have some of their products in to test and to start things off we are taking a look at one of their latest power supplies, the Dark Power Pro 10 550W. This power supply features an 80PLUS Gold certification, semi-modular design, virtually silent operation and an overclocking key that switches between quadruple independent +12V rail mode and high-performance single-rail operation. be quiet! has really made a name for themselves in Germany let’s see if that will carry over to the US.
It actually has been quite some time since we have taken a look at a power supply from FSP. FSP is mainly known for power supplies and their latest one, the Aurum Pro has a lot of great features. These features include 80PLUS Gold certification, a single 12V rail, CrossFire and SLI ready, a 5 year warranty and much more. Today we get to open the Aurum Pro and see what it is all about. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
It seems lately many companies have been coming out with power supplies that are very efficient and are made to be installed and just forgot about. Well Antec has had a line of power supplies like this for a long time, the EarthWatts series. Today we are going to be taking a look at one of the newest power supplies in the EarthWatts line the Platinum 650W. This 650W power supply has an 80PLUS Platinum certification, the highest efficiency mark for power supplies. With this power supply you will ge 92% efficiency at 50% load and 89% efficiency at 100% load. Read on as we take it through the paces.
When you are traveling or on the go you want to keep your bag as light as possible. No one wants to be walking around carrying a heavy bag that slows them down or is uncomfortable. Besides your laptop the next biggest thing in your laptop bag usually is the power adapter for your laptop. Depending on your laptop your power adapter can be quite large and bulky. Another thing that I see with a lot of my friends is them carrying around two laptops. One personal laptop and one work laptop from their job. So that means two power adapters to carry around with you. If you are tired of carrying around two power adapters or just one large one we have the perfect solution for you, the NB Q90 Universal Notebook Adapter from FSP.
Today we’ll be looking at one of the many new power supplies released by NZXT. The NZXT HALE82 750W Power Supply is one of many 80PLUS certified power supplies recently released. All of the HALE82 series are 80PLUS Bronze certified and while the more efficient HALE90 series are all 80PLUS GOLD certified, which is pretty impressive coming from a company that mainly manufactures cases.
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.
Phones, cameras, and other mobile devices are power hogs. Those who have moved to smartphones have to plan ahead if it’ll be more than ~20 hours before they’ll next be near a power outlet. A dead battery means disconnection, which means the device isn’t receiving messages, which means business isn’t getting done. Fortunately, a new class of portable batteries has hit the market. Prices on these devices are dropping, and they are diversifying in capacity and features. Once such device is the subject of this review, the Kiwi U-Powered Charger. This device sports a 2000 mAh capacity, multiple charging tips, and, as its name indicates, an array of photovoltaic cells for sun-powered recharging. ThinkComputers has the review…
