gigabyte-xtreme-gaming-xp1200m-psuBy Hilbert Hagedoorn @ GURU3D

This unit lagged under the XTREME GAMING series comes Platinum certified (seriously efficient), fairly silent, is modular and can be spotted for just $279 / 259 EUR. Platinum certified means it can offer up to 92 per cent energy efficiency at 50% load which prevents wasted power.

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.

andyson-rplatinum-1200-psuBy E. Fylladitakis @ AnandTech

When it comes to high performance >1 kW computer power supplies, almost every reputable OEM has released at least one design to serve as their flagship. This is not necessarily because the companies expect high revenue because they are well aware that this segment of the market is very small and overly saturated. They do this because the flagship serves as a symbol of the company’s capabilities and competence, enhancing their profile on all fronts in order to produce that halo product, hoping the performance of the high end results in trickle-down sales. In this extremely competitive and saturated market, we have a new contender – Andyson.

evga-supernova-1300-g2-psuAuthor: Paul Johnson @ HardOCP

EVGA has a bit of a rocky road with HardOCP when it comes to PSU reviews. Today we give EVGA the opportunity to redeem itself with its 1300 watt powerhouse touting “exceptional efficiency” and a fully modular design that is “silent and optimized for the enthusiast.” All this with a 10 year warranty? It must be a badass.

evga-supernova-1200-p2-platinum-psuAuthor: Lee Garbutt @ PC Perspective

EVGA continues to raise the bar with the introduction of two new power supplies in their popular SuperNOVA line, the 1000 P2 and 1200 P2. Both new power supplies are 80Plus Platinum certified and feature all modular cables, high-quality Japanese brand capacitors, a single high-power +12V rail, and a 140mm dual ball bearing cooling fan (with the ability to operate in silent, fan-less mode at low power levels). The 1000 P2 and 1200 P2 are also backed by a 10-year warranty (with registration). And last but not least, many PC PSU enthusiasts will be happy to know the new 1000 P2 and 1200 P2 are being supplied by Super Flower; the same OEM that EVGA has been using for many of their higher output, premium PSUs! In this review we will be taking a detailed look at the EVGA SuperNOVA 1200 P2 power supply.
