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.

Built in the SFX form-factor, this unit can supply 600 Watts of power, letting you drive high-end graphics cards, 2-way multi-GPU configurations using performance-segment ones, and perhaps even gluttonous ones such as the GTX TITAN-Z (NVIDIA rates its typical power consumption at 375W). The unit features a single 50A +12V rail design, and boasts of 80 Plus Gold efficiency rating. Other features include active PFC, and most common protection mechanisms. The best part? It features 100% modular cabling, so you can keep out cables you don't need from your compact build.

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.

Corsair Launches the HXi Series Power Supplies

Corsair, the most awarded PC power supply brand in the world1, today announced its new HXi Series PC power supply, the latest evolution in the award-winning line of HX PSUs.
