FSP Launches Hydro G Series 80 Plus Gold Power Supplies

FSP, an experienced power supply manufacturer, today announces the Hydro G 80 Plus Gold Power Supply that has been redesigned to maximize cooling efficiency with features such as a smart fan, internal component arrangement for increased airflow, enhanced heat dissipation and efficient energy conversion. This FSP power supply also features changeable logos that allow DIY enthusiasts to match the logo with the rest of the hardware.

The smart 135mm FDB (fluid dynamic bearing) fan of the Hydro G PSU automatically starts when over 30% load, and automatically stops when lower than 20% load. This smart design keeps the power supply cool, and your system quiet. The interior of the Hydro G PSU has been completely redesigned to allow for a better flow of air inside the PSU chassis. Additionally, the internal server grade copper pipes connecting the motherboard and daughterboard increase the conversion efficiency and output reliability of this more than 90% efficient power supply, leading to less excess heat.

SilentiumPC Rolls Out Enduro FM1 Gold Series Power Supplies

SilentiumPC rolled out a pair of premium mid-range power supplies (PSUs) for gaming PC builds, under the the Enduro FM1 Gold. Built with a design focus on low noise, the Enduro FM1 is characterized by a compact design, with a unit length of just 140 mm, giving you more room to deal with your cable-spaghetti. The unit measures 150 mm x 140 mm x 86 mm (WxDxH), and is cooled by a 120 mm fan, which stays off until a temperature or load threshold is reached.

The Enduro FM1 Gold comes in two models based on output - 550W and 650W. Both offer fully modular cabling. The 550W model offers two 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors, while the 650W model offers four. Both offer 24-pin ATX, 4+4 pin EPS, eight SATA power, and four Molex connectors. Under the hood, the two offer single +12V rail innards, with 80 Plus Gold efficiency, Active PFC, and modern electrical protection circuitry, such as OVP, UVP, OCP, OLP, and SCP. While SilentiumPC didn't disclose pricing, it's backing the two with 5-year warranties.

Sharkoon Announces SilentStorm SFX Power Supply Series

Sharkoon expands its range of computer power supply units under the SilentStorm SFX brand and presents two new SFX power supply unit series with "80 PLUS Gold" and "80 PLUS Bronze" certification. They offer the highest efficiency in a compact design for powerful computers such as multimedia or mini-PCs. With the included ATX mounting frame, the power supplies can be used in standard ATX cases.

The SilentStorm SFX Gold 500W is an "80 PLUS Gold" certified SFX power supply for high demands. It offers outstanding efficiency of over 90 percent by 50 percent load and meets the strict requirements of the independent 80 PLUS Initiative "PLUG LOAD SOLUTIONS". The compact dimensions total to only 130 x 125 x 63 mm. Thanks to the modular cable system the only cables used are those needed in the PC. For the setup of modern systems there is a 500 Watt power supply with two 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors for high-performance graphics cards.

SilverStone Announces SX500-LG Power Supply

For small form factor enthusiasts, the standard SFX power supply form factor has excellent combination of size, power, and affordability. At 100mm deep, however, the standard SFX PSU is also limited in fan size to 80mm. While advances in engineering and components have made modern high-end SFX PSUs quieter than ever, there is still inherent limitation with 80mm fan's ability to dissipate heat at maximum loading conditions while maintaining satisfactory noise profile for users sensitive to higher-pitch sounds. With this in mind, SilverStone has released a "lengthened" variation of the SFX form factor called, SFX-L. With 30mm of added depth, a SFX-L power supply has enough room to fit a 120mm fan, thus its maximum load noise can be not only lower in intensity (via slower fan speed), but also lower in pitch (due to larger fan size).

The first model to debut in the SFX-L will be the SX500-LG, a 500W model that includes all features available from top of the line SFX SilverStone PSUs such as 80 PLUS Gold efficiency, modular flexible flat cables, and semi-fanless capability. An ATX adapter bracket is included as well to enable users to install this PSU into any small or even larger cases that do not have SFX mounting holes.

EVGA Unveils a Trio of 1600W PSUs

EVGA unveiled no less than three new 1600W power supplies at Computex, including the Supernova 1600 G2 (recently announced), the Supernova 1600 T2, and the Supernova 1600 P2. Their model names should be a dead giveaway on how the three differ from each other. While the 1600 G2 lives up to 80 Plus Gold efficiency standards, the 1600 P2 scores 80 Plus Platinum, and the 1600 T2 80 Plus Titanium. The three feature nearly identical power-distribution diagrams, feature-sets; although we're not sure if the P2 and T2 translate their higher efficiency into more output connectors. Either of the three should be good enough for systems with four R9 290X, or two R9 295X2 graphics cards; but we guess the 1600 P2 and 1600 T2 should appeal to professional overclockers who also plan to throw 150W TDP Core i7-5960X "Haswell-E" into the mix.
