Going in the heatsink testbed today is a new offering from NZXT, the Havik 120. I tested its older brother, the Havik 140 several months ago and found it to be a pretty decent performer. The design philosophy on this one is just a little bit different than their first offering, so we are going to put it through the mill and see how well it cools a 200+ watt heatload.
Today, we’re looking at InWin’s new Glacier 900 W power supply. It’s an 80+ Gold rated, modular cabled unit with a nice looking spec sheet and a staggeringly long seven year warranty. Sounds pretty good to me! I’ll give it a taste of hell with my load tester, peer into its secret high frequency workings with my oscilloscope, and lastly crack it open to see if any wooly mammoths are inside the glacier. If I don’t find frozen mammoths, I’ll look at the build quality and see what components were used.
