    HEC subsidiary Cougar Power is unveiled its newest lineup of high-end power supply units (PSUs), the Cougar Power S-Series. These PSUs come with three big selling points: modular cabling, 80Plus Silver efficiency rating, and eye-catching aesthetics. Part of the series for now, are the S550 and S700, with output powers of 550W and 700W as their names suggest.

    The PSU comes with a rugged casing with three-tone colours (graphite, silver, and orange). Under the hood is a 100% Japanese 105 °C capacitor design. DC-DC switching ensures high efficiency. The +12V circuit uses four rails. Packed with with undervoltage, overvoltage, overload protection, these PSUs bag 80Plus Silver efficiency rating. These are expected to hit stores on September 1.

    Looking a bit like Enermax PSU's....I hope the rails are strong, if so, they don't look too bad of a PSU and may sell well so long as the price is right. :)

    I agree. Enermax-like and very attractively styled. Hopefully they're beefy and reliable enough to compete.

    Does an orange PSU or something like neon green strobe light in your computer makes you feel like a l33t hax0r?

    Don't worry about him, his only reply in this thread was a simple troll.....not unusual though. :nutkick:


    I like the PSU and the design of it...it screams "Enermax" and that's in my view is a good thing. :toast:

    I agree, its a very good design, it's mostly grey with a nice touch of orange to make it stand out a bit.

    hmph, looks nothing like a quasi attractive middle aged woman on the prowl... but I'd let it buy me a drink

    P.S. That sleeving is disgusting!

    learn to typo less (you just told him to 'do' his mother, then a pimp emote)
    learn not to troll
    learn that other people have different tastes to you.

    The color is reminescent to a Dodge Challenger. :respect: Considering I use their WinPower 550AB, this Cougar should be awesome.
