Sometimes even a quiet fan is too loud, for those situations Rosewill has you covered with this Silent Night PSU. It doesn’t have a loud fan. It doesn’t have a quiet fan. It doesn’t have a fan at all! The claim is that this makes it a 0dB PSU. It certainly goes a long way towards that goal, but fans aren’t the only source of noise from a PSU.
Rosewill has decided to get into the High Wattage High Efficiency power supply game, their TACHYON series runs from 550 W up through 1000 W. Naturally enough, I went for the 1000 W flavor. It boasts 80+ Platinum efficiency, modular cables, as well as general awesomeness. This isn’t the first 1kW Platinum unit we’ve had here at OCF, let’s see how Rosewill’s model compares!
Here we have Cooler Master’s latest PSU. No longer content with mere Silver or Gold ratings, this unit is rated as an 80+ Platinum unit. The 80+ Platinum badge certifies that the PSU is disgustingly efficient and contributes a bare minimum to global warming. Or at the very least, that it’s at least 89% efficient at full load, 92% at 50% load, and 90% at 20% load.
Here we have it folks, EVGA’s entry into the “Ultimate PSU” market. EVGA has gone above and beyond the usual even for this market segment. 1500 W isn’t enough, so they put in eight rails (that can be set to a single huge rail via software or a DIP switch), fan controls, software to monitor and adjust the unit, 16 PCIe cables. It’s an impressively excessive PSU, really.
NZXT has released a sequel to their excellent HALE82 power supply lineup, the HALE82 N Series. We have the 750 W flavor here today. It will get checked out, poked, prodded, abusively tested (twice), ripped to shreds, analyzed, inspected, quantified, and finally given an official Overclockers.com rating.
