The Tagan SuperRock 680W is a great power supply for budget aware users who are looking for a cost effective way to power their system. With 680W it should be good for almost everything you can throw at it. During our testing we found out that the PSU is running very quiet which makes it a good candidate for a silent media PC system, too.

So this PSU draws 53 watts when the PC is switched off? I never knew that PSUs still used power when the PC is off, is this common to all PSUs?

Nice review too BTW.

ever noticed your motherboard light stays on, and some USB devices still have LED's illuminated? For me my external harddrive and my N52te stay lit up even after turning my system off, no idea why they remain active.

As always, a thorough and consistent review! Now I sound like a broken record, but let's see some really quality modular 80 plus (~800w) PSU put through it's paces!

Perhaps there's already one on here and I haven't seen it :rolleyes:
