EVGA Shows Off SuperNova G+ Series High-Wattage PSUs

EVGA grabbed quite some attention at CES earlier this year, when it unveiled its gargantuan SuperNova 2200W P2 power-supply. The P2 series are 80 Plus Platinum rated. EVGA thinks there's room for a slightly cheaper line of high-Wattage PSUs that are 80 Plus Gold rated, but have the feature-set of more expensive P2 series models. Enter the G+ series. For now, the series has to very dissimilar variants - the SuperNova 850W G+, and the SuperNova 2000W G+. Both models feature single +12V rail designs, DC-to-DC switching, large 135 mm cooling fans, and most common electrical protections. The 2000W model even has an "Eco mode" toggle, which turns off the fan below a thermal/load threshold.

The SuperNova 850W G+ has enough juice and straws for a reasonably high-end build with up to four graphics cards, using eight 6+2 pin PCIe connectors. It also features two 4+4 pin EPS (handy in some of the newer HEDT platforms), twelve SATA power, three Molex, and a Berg. The SuperNova 2000W G+ is a different beast. You can power up to ten graphics cards over twenty 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors, in addition to two 4+4 pin EPS, sixteen SATA power, six Molex, and two Bergs. Both models provide flat, fully-modular cabling. EVGA expects to launch these within Q3-2018.

The minimum expected noise level for the FX350-G is around the 20 dBA mark. According to the datasheet, the Silverstone FX350-G has built-in over power, over voltage, and short circuit protections. Besides the typical 24-pin and 8-pin EPS power connectors, the power supply comes with one 6-pin PCIe connector, three SATA connectors, two 4-pin Molex connectors, and a 4-pin Berg connector. No pricing was revealed.

Raidmax Announces Cobra Series 1200W PSUs

Raidmax today rolled out the Cobra series power supplies (not to be confused with the Akasa CobraPower series from 2013). These PSUs are part of the Cobra Gaming line of hardware Raidmax debuted in September 2017 with AIO liquid CPU coolers. The company also has a case by that name from 2012. The Raidmax Cobra PSU lineup includes two models for now, 1000W and 1200W. The 1000W model has been available in some markets since January. The 1200W model launched today.

The PSUs are characterized by a black+yellow color scheme on the units, and cable sleeves resembling certain species of cobra. They feature partially modular cabling, with the 24-pin ATX, two 4+4 pin EPS, and two 6+2 pin PCIe power (1000W) or four 6+2 pin PCIe power (1200W) connectors being fixed; while two additional 6+2 pin PCIe power, nine SATA power, six Molex, and one Berg, are modular. Under the hood, these PSUs feature single +12V rail designs, with 80 Plus Gold efficiency, DC-to-DC switching, active PFC, and most common electrical protections. A 135 mm fan keeps the unit cool. The quirky styling extends to even the airtight plastic boxes these PSUs ship in.

Seasonic Intros Prime SnowSilent Series PSUs with 12-year Warranty

Seasonic today introduced three Prime SnowSilent series PSU models. The series is characterized by white main body, a chrome-finished steel fan grille, and a white impeller on its main fan. The internal DC outputs and AC receptacles are contrasting black. There's an intense design focus on keeping the noise output of these units low. The fan downright stays off below a load threshold, and only has a low noise output beyond that. The fans feature fluid-dynamic bearings to help low noise and longevity, to keep up with the series' staggering 12-year product warranties.

The three models launched today are the SnowSilent 550 Gold, SnowSilent 650 Platinum, and SnowSilent 750 Titanium. The SnowSilent 550 Gold puts out 550W continuous output, and boasts of 80 Plus Gold efficiency. It is intended for gaming PC builds with 1-2 graphics cards. The SnowSilent 650 Platinum features 650W continuous output, and 80 Plus Platinum efficiency. The SnowSilent 750 Titanium leads the pack with 750W continuous output, and 80 Plus Titanium efficiency. The 650 Platinum and 750 Titanium are intended for builds with high CPU power draw, and 2-3 graphics cards.

Gamdias Intros Cyclops and Astrape Series PSUs

Known more for its gaming peripherals (input devices), Gamdias entered the power-supply market with the launch of its Cyclops X1 and Astrape P1 series. The Cyclops X1 is the more premium series of the two, and for now, only has a 1200W model. The Atrape P1 comes in 750W, 650W, and 550W models, with three 650W models based on cabling and efficiency. What's common between all Gamdias PSUs is RGB LED-illuminated fan, with a rear-panel switch to toggle lighting, a and "silent mode" switch that turns off the fan, which feels too closely placed to the main AC input switch (what could possibly go wrong?).

The Cyclops X1-1200P features 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, fully modular cabling, and enough juice and straws for an enthusiast build with up to four graphics cards (ten PCIe 6+2 and two 8-pin EPS). The Astrape P1-750G and P1-650G feature 80 Plus Gold efficiency, fully-modular cabling, and cabling for high-end builds with 2-3 graphics cards. The Astrape M1-650B has 80 Plus Bronze efficiency and completely fixed cabling, while the Astrape M1-650W and M1-550W only have 80 Plus (no extension) efficiency, and fixed cabling for a mid-range build with 1-2 graphics cards.

Be Quiet! Announces Straight Power 11 Modular PSU Series

be quiet!, the market leader in PC power supplies in Germany for eleven consecutive years, announces its latest, most silent power supply, Straight Power 11. With its completely redesigned PCB, wire-free design on the DC side, an expanded power range with models up to 1,000 watts, and a modern topology using high-quality components, Straight Power 11 is a worthy successor to be quiet!'s premium power supply series.

The Straight Power 11 series uses be quiet!'s renowned Silent Wings 3 135 mm fan with a funnel-shaped vent that simultaneously provides excellent airflow and reduces unwanted turbulence. A 6-pole motor and fluid-dynamic bearings create both an extremely low noise level and the lowest startup rotational speed in the market - under 200 revolutions per minute. This fan is extremely silent, making semi-passive solutions unnecessary and ensuring constant cooling at a low noise level. Since fans are not the only source of noise in a power supply, high-quality capacitors are used to prevent high-frequency electronic noise emission and noise induced by extreme load changes (like, for example, from modern graphics cards) is also minimized.

Phanteks Revolt X and Revolt Pro Power Supplies Pictured

Phanteks at its 2018 International CES booth treated us with a big selection of new wares, beginning with the new Revolt X and Revolt Pro power-supply series. The Revolt X model on display is 1200W (model: PH-P1200PS). Revolt X are high-end, fully-modular PSUs, with cabling to power two individual systems. You get two 24-pin ATX cables, three 8-pin EPS, and a total of eight 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors. You also get a total of eight SATA power, three Molex, and one Berg. The power supply turns on when either of the two 24-pin connector shorts the power cable, and turns off when neither of the two is drawing power, so you get the freedom to use two individual machines within one case.

Under the hood, the Revolt X features a single +12V rail design, with a single 100A rail. The unit boasts of 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, micro-tolerance load regulation, a hybrid fan control (fan stays off below a temperature threshold); active PFC, and most common electrical protections, against over/under voltage, overload, short-circuit, and overheat. The Revolt Pro is the antithesis of the idea behind the Revolt X. While the Revolt X is designed to power two individual machines within one box, the Revolt Pro is designed to work in teams of two to power one machine, for redundancy and power output increase. You power two machines with one Revolt X (convenience, less clutter), while you power one machine with two Revolt Pro's (redundancy, more power).
