Be Quiet! Unveils Straight Power 10 Modular PSUs

Be Quiet unveiled its Straight Power 10 (E10-CM) line of mid-range, semi-modular PSUs. We went hands-on with its 500W variant, the E10-CM-500. The idea behind the series is to offer 80 Plus Gold efficiency, and semi-modular cabling at category-first, sub-$100 price-points, combined of course, with Be Quiet's reputation for making stuff that's, well, quiet. This particular model features enough cabling to power a gaming PC with a single high-end graphics card, or two performance-segment ones, provided you balance them out with energy-efficient CPUs. It features a single +12V rail design. It offers a 24-pin ATX, 8-pin EPS, four 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and a number of SATA, Molex, and Berg connectors.

Rosewill Unveils AIM Series Digital PSUs

Rosewill unveiled its own line of digital PSUs, which give you software monitoring and control over its various power domains, and fan-speed. 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 feature single 12V rail designs, and boast of 80 Plus Platinum efficiency ratings.

Be Quiet Woos SFF Crowd with SFX Power 2 and TFX Power 2 PSUs

Be Quiet launched its SFX Power 2 and TFX Power 2 lines of power supplies for compact gaming PC builds. As their names suggest, they're based on the SFX and TFX form-factors, respectively. The SFX Power 2 comes in capacities of up to 400W, with enough juice to drive a gaming PC with a single high-end graphics card; while the TFX Power 2 comes in sizes of up to 300W, with the ability to power gaming PCs with performance-segment graphics cards. The TFX Power 2 300W flaunts 80 Plus Gold efficiency, and a dual-12V rail design; while the SFX Power 2 400W makes do with 80 Plus Bronze efficiency rating, and a dual-12V rail design.

Thermaltake Unveils Toughpower Titanium 1500W PSU

Thermaltake unveiled its flagship power supply, the Toughpower Titanium 1500W. As its name might suggest, the PSU boasts of 80 Plus Titanium efficiency rating, and offers 1500W of power. That's enough to drive gaming PCs with four high-end graphics cards, or two dual-GPU ones. This unit features a single massive +12V rail design. It also features fully-modular cabling, with sleeved cables, Japan-made innards, and a 140 mm temperature-controlled fan, which spools down at low loads.

Corsair HXi Series Power Supplies Gone Hands-on

Corsair's plans to get the Corsair Link in the hands of as many enthusiasts as possible, are spearheaded by the HXi line of fully-modular PSUs. These are not just the old CWT-built HX series units retrofitted with Link support; but feature entirely new innards, which explain how they boast of 80 Plus Platinum rating. 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.

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.

Cougar GXD Digital PSU Lets You Tweak Output Voltages

Cougar's new GXD line of high-end PSUs may not be the first to offer software based control, but it could well be the first to let you tinker with output domains such as 3.3V and +12V. The PSU's control software, which interfaces with it over USB, lets you tweak key voltage domains by ±3%. In theory, this should let you raise voltages under heavy load. Apart from electric control, the software lets you monitor the PSU's temperature, and control its fan-speed curve in relation to temperatures and load. It also lets you monitor the PC's input power and power output, and efficiency in real-time. Cougar GXD series come in two variants, 800W, designed for gaming PCs with up to two high-end graphics cards, and 1050W, for up to three.

Cooler Master Designs PSU that Talks Directly with Your Smartphone

In a bid to take on Corsair's AXi and HXi line of PSUs that can interface with your PC over USB, letting you monitor and manage some of their specs over Corsair Link software, Cooler Master is giving final touches to its own line of high-end smart PSUs, beginning with the Digital 1200. Cooler Master's unique selling point here is Bluetooth direct access. The PSU is outfitted with a WLAN module of its own, letting your smartphone or tablet access it over Bluetooth. Cooler Master will have PSU monitoring and configuration apps on Google Play and the App Store. The app lets you monitor power consumption, efficiency, and temperatures, and tweak PSU fan speeds on the fly. The Digital 1200, as its name suggests, is a 1200-Watt PSU that boasts of 80 Plus Titanium efficiency. It features fully modular cabling, with enough wiring to drive gaming PC builds with 2 to 3 graphics cards in multi-GPU configurations. This PSU's most obvious advantage over Corsair Link, is its lack of dependency on your OS, and stability of your system.
