BitFenix Fury Passes Intel Haswell Testing

The release of the Fury PSU Series has made serious waves in the hardware community with impressive power specifications and cables featuring all Alchemy sleeving. Another great benefit is high efficiency and cost savings, especially when paired with Intel's Haswell-class processors and their low-power sleep states. To ensure full compatibility with the latest hardware, BitFenix has worked closely with Intel to make sure that Fury delivers according to spec. After recent testing from the Intel labs, the BitFenix Fury PSU Series passed with flying colors, reaffirming their full compatibility with Intel Haswell C6/C7 sleep states.

Intel Haswell C6/C7 is a low-power state that is meant to lower power usage when the system is in sleep mode. The issue arises when certain power supplies are unable to provide a minimum load of 0.05 amps on the 12V2 rail, which can lead to stability issues. However, Fury PSUs are fully compatible with these sleep states, as the Intel testing labs have confirmed. See below for the Haswell test for the Fury 750G:

Unlike Corsair's implementation, which involves an internal USB connection to your motherboard, and a Windows app, Rosewill did something similar to Cooler Master, by equipping its PSUs with Bluetooth modules, and Android apps, which let you tweak your PSU on your smartphone, so system instability doesn't come in the way of setting your PSU right, if something goes wrong.

The AIM series of digital PSUs comes in five models - 600W, 750W, 850W, 1000W, and 1250W. It features partially modular cabling (the 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS, along with one pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors, are fixed). The 600W comes with wiring for single high-end graphics card systems; 750W and 850W for two, 1000W for three, and 1250W for four.

The units come in three variants, the HX750i, the HX850i, and the HX1000i. The 750W HX750i has enough juice for most dual GPU builds; the HX850i could let you squeeze in a third GPU, while the HX1000i might let you drop in a fourth one; although with vampires such as the R9 290 series and GTX TITAN Black on the prowl, we'd pick HX750i and HX850i for no more than two high-end cards, and the HX1000i for no more than three.
