corsair-hx850-80plus-platinum-psuBy E. Fylladitakis @ AnandTech

In this review we are having a look at the latest revision of Corsair’s HX PSU series. The main improvements of the new series revision are an improved certification to Platinum, a fully modular design, and now an extended 10-year warranty. We are testing the HX850 model, suitable for 850W which can easily feed a powerful dual GPU gaming/workstation system.

enermax-platimax-df-1200w-psuBy Paul Johnson @ HardOCP

If you are looking for a powerhouse of a PSU that is shoehorned into what is a tiny ATX package for the wattage, the Platimax D.F. (Dust Free) PSU may be worthy of your short list. As the name suggests, this PSU sports excellent power efficiency and is fully modular and that could make your HEDT build a lot easier.

be-quiet-sfx-l-600w-psuBy Lee Garbutt @ PC Perspective

BeQuiet! recently expanded their power supply lineup with the addition of two new small form factor (SFX-L) units, the SFX-L 500W and SFX-L 600W. The new power supplies are fully modular and optimized for quiet operation as you might expect from BeQuiet!. The SFX-L 500W and SFX-L 600W are 80 Plus Gold certified for high efficiency and feature a high-quality 120mm cooling fan thanks to the lengthened SFX-L chassis design. While SFX-L power supplies are designed for use in small form factor enclosures, the BeQuiet! SFX-L power supplies can also be used in standard ATX cases to save room via the included SFX to ATX adapter bracket. However, keep in mind the cables are quite short as these power supplies are mainly intended for Small Form Factor builds. We will be taking a detailed look at the new BeQuiet! SFX-L 600W power supply in this review.

evga-supernova-850-g3-psuBy Aris Mpitziopoulos @ Tom’s Hardware

EVGA refreshed its popular G2 PSU family with the G3 one using Super Flower’s Leadex II platform. The 850 G3 is the second strongest member in this line-up, offering high performance and a depth of just 15cm. The SuperNOVA G3 units are based on a fresh Leadex II platform, and their most obvious upgrade over the G2 series is more compact dimensions. Packing higher capacity into smaller enclosures affects what we refer to as power density. Increasingly, PSU vendors are trying to do battle based on this concept of power density. Not long ago, SilverStone was the only company that really put an effort into shrinking its power supplies. Now the list is a lot longer.

be-quiet-pure-power-9-cm-700-wattBy Hilbert Hagedoorn @ GURU3D

We review the new 700 Watt Pure Power 9 CM 700W Power Supply from Be Quiet! The series has been fiddled and fooled around with and comes with some new tweaks, features and hey now, is an 80 Plus Silver certified product series. With the ever-growing demand of power consumption this is a highly modular, with two 12V rails (for this 700 watt model), highly energy efficient product that remains very silent.

fsp-hydro-g-750w-80-plus-goldBy  E. Fylladitakis @ AnandTech

Fortron Source (FSP) is one of the oldest computer PSU manufacturers in the market, and is the OEM behind a number of rebranded products. Their designs are usually found in advanced mid-range units, such as the Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 series, but FSP has also developed interesting high-wattage designs, some of which they have been selling under their own brand. To that end, today we’ll be taking a closer look at one of thier first-party PSUs, the FSP Hydro G 750W.

zalman-1000ebt-psuBy Hilbert Hagedoorn @ GURU3D

We review the Zalman ZM1000-EBT power supply. This 1 kilowatt powerhouse of the model comes Gold certified, that means it’s roughly 90% efficient at 50% load. Efficiency matters. The PSU itself is fully modular, for most of you with a side panel window in their chassis that is a must really as you’ll want modular cables. Have a peek at the article. This 80 Plus Gold certified power supply is profoundly advertised as a PSU with solid Japanese capacitors, and offers a fully modular design in cables.
