jonnyguru.com: We continue our exploration of some of the market's lesser known power supplies today with the GP-PS550BP from GlacialTech, a budget unit featuring semi-fanless operation, passive PFC, and a promise by the company of being capable of full power to 45 degrees.
ocia.net: BFG offers several different models of power supplies, from the value-oriented GS to the modular MX series, all the way up to their top of the line ES-800; they have something for every need and budget. The one I have for review today is the LS-550, which seems to fall somewhere in the middle of their lineup. Despite the relatively smallish power rating, the LS-550 offers quad +12v rails, 6 and 8-pin PCIe and ATX 2.2 version compatibility, all backed up by an impressive 5-year warranty.
hardwaresecrets.com: ES-800 is a power supply using a different internal design called frequency conversion, with BFG claiming it provides higher efficiency. Is that so? Lets check this out.
virtual-hideout.net: BFG has a great power suppy here - not only does it look good, but it does it with performing style. For the duration of the testing, and the subsequent gaming session afterwards, performance remained solid while silence was in full effect. I found no issues with any of the cabling, or the installation of the unit - that was the fault of the unit. Overall, I would have to say that if you're in the market for a PSU at this price point ($219), BFG's ES800 is an excellent choice.
bigbruin.com: The BFG Tech line of power supplies consists of several models that offer a variety of interesting features and power ratings from 550W to 1000W. In this review we will be taking a look at the LS-680, a 680 Watt unit that features desirable items such as quad 12V rails, four PCI Express graphics card connections, and a typical efficiency of 85%.
trustedreviews.com: Ok, I?m exaggerating a little, but the point is that the power supply is severely overlooked when considering an upgrade or a fresh PC build. For many, it?s the same state of confusion as the day you first walk into Starbucks to discover there are 192 different ways of ordering coffee. Gone are the days of ?just a coffee?, so equally, say goodbye to the concept of ?just a power supply?.
futurelooks.com: Wait a sec... Doesn't CORSAIR make memory? Well, they do, but now they do Power Supplies too! CORSAIR's latest entry into the power supply world known as the HX is all business. Without any flashy LED's or chrome, just what could make this power supply special? Let's find out!
hi-techreviews.com: In our continuing search for what we consider to be outstanding power supplies we can add the Mushkin HP 580AP to that list. Thanks to its four separate 12-volt rails this unit is able to maintain near perfect voltages on all rails, even when being subjected to a stress test.
ocia.net: A while ago I reviewed a power supply tester, and while I found the unit useful, I also mentioned it would be nice to be able to determine the exact voltage outputs rather than a simple pass/fail. Today I am reviewing a tester from CoolMax that offers exactly that... an LCD that displays exact voltage outputs for each of the different rails. CoolMax advertises this tester to be accurate to within +/- 0.1V and with all outputs displayed to the tenth of a volt we can infer the unit is simply rounding up or down.
3dgameman.com: Logisys has created a wonderful answer to those looking to help the look of their acrylic setups. This power supply has great construction with eye catching neon Green mesh. Performance with medium level hardware shows strong but with a transition to updated hardware, the numbers will greatly be affected as the amperage just cant keep up with todays newest hardware
hardwarelogic.com: The VX450W from Corsair touts itself as a low noise and high efficiency 450 watt power supply. Corsair claims the VX450W produces 21db of noise under all but the heaviest loads (not much more than the sound of a whisper at three feet away), and will remain over 80% efficiency over its entire range. They call the VX450W a rock solid performer and ideal solution for home theater PCs (HTPCs) and Energy Star PCs (we read this as mainstream and budget). Oh really? Well, we shall see about that.
hardwaresecrets.com: TX750W belongs to the latest power supply series from Corsair, TX. It is the power supply with the highest wattage from Corsair today rated at 50?? C, by the way, which is great and also the only one featuring four power connectors for video cards even the 650 W model from TX series doesn't have four connectors. Another technical feature of this new series is the use of a single high current +12 V rail instead of several virtual rails with lower currents units from their HX series have three virtual rails, but models from their VX series also feature a single +12V rail.
dreamwarecomputers.com: With power hungry systems on the rise, so is the need for a solid power supply that can provide consistent and clean power to a system.

With 700W of power and an efficiency rating of 80+%, it looks like they may have a solid contender for those looking for a high quality power supply for their system.
hardwarelogic.com: FSP group first opened its doors in 1996. A decade later they have built themselves into one of the top 10 suppliers of power conversion products in the world. The 700 watt FX700 FX-Epsilon we are testing today is touted as a high efficiency, quiet operation, SLI ready, ATX V2.2 compliant unit. Well, we'll just see about that. Nurse, bring us our screwdrivers! (shaken, not stirred).
hardwaresecrets.com: ABT-450MM is one of the most low-end power supplies from Kingwin, targeted to users building a very basic PC. Kingwin promises that this power supply can really deliver its rated power at 50?? C. Is that so?
hardwaresecrets.com: Zalman has a complete line of power supplies from 360 W to 1,000 W. We decided to take a look on the simplest model, ZM360B-APS, which costs only around USD 60. Even though it is an entry-level power supply, it features active PFC, a 120-mm fan and two video card power connectors, so things looked pretty spec-wise. But can it really deliver its rated 360 W? Is this a really good product for Average Joe? Let's see.
hardwaresecrets.com: Corsair is a traditional memory manufacturer they gained a lot of respect in the industry with their power supplies we reviewed HX620W and TX750W and they are terrific products.
