EVGA Recalls Bad Batches of SuperNova PSUs

EVGA issued a recall notice to a small batch of SuperNova series PSUs, specifically models 1000 G2, 1000 P2, and 1300 G2, after it discovered a manufacturing flaw affecting entire batches. The affected batches went into distribution before October 1st, 2013; so if your unit was bought after that, it's not affected. The defect involves the lack of sufficient insulation material on the thermal pads of certain heatsinks, which could cause the overheat protection to kick in, and the PSU to shut down. EVGA set up a page where you can input the serial number of your unit, to check if it's part of the bad batch. If it is, you can apply for RMA, and the company will freely replace the unit (including shipping), and toss in a free EVGA t-shirt. The support page can be accessed here.

Enermax Extends "Ahead of the Game" Series

One month ago, Enermax informed about the introduction of a new product line which is specially designed for the requirements of modern gaming machines. "Ahead of the Game" covers different PC areas. "The models of our new series allow for a game play on the highest level. They are the perfect choice for high-end systems and provide leading technology for the pure joy of gaming", explains Benjamin Schäfer, PR/Marketing Team Leader of Enermax Europe. With the midi tower iVektor, the first gaming series from Enermax made a perfect market debut. The racing-style chassis with the soft-grip coating offers a variety of functions and many possibilities for system upgrades. But for a steady flow of game at highest resolution, the hardware inside is the crucial factor.

Schäfer: "We offer users the perfect starter set to build up a performance-capable and at the same time durable gaming system. Most often, people focus on the graphics card or CPU only. But at the end, the power supply decides how stable a PC runs. If your system is crashing down regularly, the PSU might be a possible source of trouble. Therefore, it is worthwhile to spend more money in a quality brand product instead of buying the cheapest of the cheap models. And if you consider about an efficient cooling system, you need to know that you can not only prolong the lifetime of the installed components, but you can also draw the ultimate performance out of your hardware. You will only achieve the highest clock rates if you rely on the best cooling solution."
