NZXT HALE82 850 W Power Supply Review
NZXT has sent us a brand new just-released power supply known as the HALE82 850w. If the HALE branding sounds familiar you're probably thinking of NZXT's HALE90 series of PSUs. The only downside to the HALE90 units is that 80+ Gold parts and designs are expensive! The HALE82 series is 80+ Bronze rated and should cost significantly less than the HALE90 units, while maintaining the excellent NZXT quality.

Very nice review
The pictures you took of the scope display are much easier to read in this review than the antec one you just did.
Thanks for all the hard work doing these reviews.

Those antec results were downright weird, those were better pictures of a very strange output
Glad you like the review!

Another good one Bobnova
Just curious, does the "82" and "90" in HALE82/HALE90 have any reflection of the efficiency or 80+ rating of the unit? Sounds like it might.i7 6770K | ASUS Maximus VIII Impact | 2x8GB Patriot Viper 4 DDR4-2800 | EVGA GTX980 Ti | 256GB OCZ Vertex 4 | SeaSonic X750

I believe so, 80+ bronze says minimum 82% efficiency at 20% and 80% load levels.
80+ Gold may well mean 90% minimum.

I think it's nice that we as a site have people who are clearly very good at reviewing certain hardware: Mudd with heatsinks, Bobnova with PSUs ...David J. Nelson MChem(Edin) PhD(Strath) MRSC [ResearcherID: D-3927-2011] [Google Scholar]
