Antec Launches NeoECO C Power Supply Series in Europe

Antec is pleased to announce the launch of its new NeoECO C power supply series to all European markets and channels. NeoECO C is a series ranging from 400-620W made for casual gamers and SOHO users, who want a silent and efficient solution, which reliably and safely powers their system.

NeoECO C has 80 PLUS BRONZE certified efficiency and features Japanese heavy-duty capacitors for tightly regulated DC output. The high-quality double ball bearing fan is made whisper-quiet by the Thermal Manager fan control, whilst CircuitShield protection IC works to prevent most possible damages to the PSU and system in case of 3rd party failure.

Cooler Master Announces New G-Series Power Supplies

Cooler Master is proud to announce the new G-Series Power Supplies for ATX-computer systems. This series consists of three models: 500W (G500), 600W (G600) and 700W (G700). The G-series are high efficient because of active PFC and are 80 Plus Bronze certified. These energy-transformers are able to handle big graphic cards and the latest processors on the market (Haswell), because of the single 12V rail topology with high DC out support up to 55A/660W (G700).

The intelligent speed control of the 120mm fan prevents noise during workload and also prevents overheating of the PSU. Until 70% load conditions the fan will work in silent mode to prevent extra noise. The G-series also provides plenty of connectivity. There are nine SATA connectors (6 for G500/G600) and three Molex connectors available and the G700 even provides multi graphic-card support. Of course all the different models of the G-series come with multiple protections, such as Voltage-Protections, Current-Protections, Short Circuit Protection and Temperature-Protection.

On the Clock with Parvum Systems

The modding and custom water cooling scene has never been a particularly stable or reliable medium to build a business in and around of, with its intrinsically superfluous character making it a particularly risky bet for a start-up of any sort, and indeed a losing bet for very many of those who did bite the bullet, invested the money and delivered the goods, but failed to capitalize on what can best be described as a frivolous demand. A multitude of brands with a wide variety of products have come and gone, while some of those still on the scene are slowly fading into irrelevance, all of whom failed to correctly grasp the nature of that demand.

Thankfully, all is not gloom, this is a vibrant scene I'm talking about, with many household names that have been around for many many years, and some quite new ones also, doing very well and in some instances thriving. All of whom brought and bring to market products that not only meet existing demand, but primarily come to generate it. While generally a low volume market, the sheer variety of products is quite overwhelming, from completely over the top contraptions such as the Aqua Computer GIGANT radiators or the obscenely expensive, functional artwork boasting the Murderbox branding, to grotesquely designed and executed kitsch that will remain unnamed, in-between you'll find anything meeting every taste or budget. And from this busy, vibrant and idiosyncratic scene a new player by the name or Parvum Systems is looking to carve a piece for itself.

The new VP550F is Antec's all-round entry level model; for end users and system integrators looking for an affordable solution; which is built upon a durable and efficient platform.

VP550F is 80 PLUS certified with up to 87% max efficiency and a whisper-quiet 12cm fan and equipped with heavy-duty capacitors. "I expect VP F not only to succeed among end users, but also integrators who need not only 80 PLUS certification, but the reliability of a series minimizing their after sales & support costs.", says Jerome Francois, "Our 230V input VP P series is known for exactly that kind of affordability and one of the lowest RMA rates in the industry, VP F will offer the same to our customers."

Be Quiet! Introduces Pure Power L8 PSU Series

Be quiet!, market leader with power supplies in Germany for seven consecutive years, introduces its brand new "Pure Power L8" power supplies. The new series ranging from 300 to 700 Watts offers unprecedented low noise levels in the entry market and takes recent customer needs into account, offering PCIe connectors already for the 300 Watt model.

Be quiet!'s Pure Power L8 with cable management is one of the most successful power supplies for the company. It offers a great set of features for a reasonable price. Now be quiet! decided to broaden this offer even more by releasing Pure Power L8 models in a version with fixed cables. Doing so, be quiet! is able to bring the fantastic feature set of these popular PSUs to an even lower price level.

EVGA SuperNova 1000 G2 Hits Retail

Announced a little over a month ago, the SuperNova 1000 G2 is the latest addition to EVGA's SuperNova power supply series and is now available for purchase. Major European and North American retailers have listed the unit during the last few days, with prices falling inline with segment norm, around €/$ 180. The SuperNova 1000 G2 is the second high output unit of the series, after the SuperNova NEX1500 Classified, which received mixed reviews and failed to generate the desired traction for EVGA's recent PSU venture, partially because of its price (being the most expensive consumer PSU on the market at launch) and partially because of its lackluster performance for a halo product.

The SuperNova 1000 G2 is based on a leading platform from renowned OEM/ODM, Super Flower, a first for EVGA which previously collaborated with Etasis Electronics (for the SuperNova NEX 1500 Classified) and FSP (for the rest of its SuperNova lineup). While Super Flower's aformentioned platform, dubbed Leadex, is itself new, we did get to see it put through its paces by OklahomaWolf at jonnyGURU.com, where it performed exceptionally well, legitimizing expectations of similar feats from EVGA's own version of it. The SuperNova 1000 G2 also boasts superb connectivity, offering functionality superior to most competing products, and not least, a 10 year warranty period, something no other power supply offers, except for EVGA's own SuperNova NEX1500 Classified.

Seasonic Shows Off 1200 W Platinum Power Supply

More than eighteen months after it first debuted the P Series, Seasonic unveils its range topping SS-1200XP3 (where XP3 denotes a third generation product). Visually, the new power supply closely resembles the 1000 W version and the first generation 860 W version (now retired). Also similar is the fan employed by the new unit, being the same Sanyo Denki San Ace 9S that Seasonic employs across its premium product lines. The similarities do not stop here though, the unit boasts the same semi-fanless operation mode where the fan is engaged only at loads exceeding 30% of the PSU's rated output, also the customary 105° C rated Japanese capacitors are used throughout the unit. Seasonic also advertises this unit as a single +12V rail design, just like it did (and still does) with its first generation P Series products, in spite of the fact that they are quad-rail designs with OCP trip points set very high. Remains to be seen if that is the case with the 1200 W version as well.

be quiet! Power Zone Series Detailed

During the recently ended Computex event in Taipei, be quiet! presented a wide range of new products, CPU coolers as well as power supplies. Among them a new upper-mainstream PSU line dubbed Power Zone, which consists of four models starting at 650 W and followed by 750 W, 850 W and 1000 W versions. This constitutes a premiere for be quiet! in that these are the first fully modular power supplies to be offered by the German brand. Another aspect intended to be addressed with this product line is affordability, which is something few of us would associate with the be quiet! moniker.

The four units comprising the Power Zone line are single +12V rail designs, use only 105° C rated capacitors and claim 80 Plus Bronze efficiency. They also make use of the be quiet! Silent Wings 135 mm fan, which is a Protechnic made Fluid Dynamic Bearing fan, probably the best fan you can have inside a power supply. The modular connector panel also houses three fan headers, feature carried over from the Dark Power Pro P10 line. be quiet! will offer these products with a 5 year warranty and pricing should start below 100 €.
