Mistel Intros Vision MX Series Fanless PSUs with RGB LED Lighting

You probably know Mistel more for its physically split keyboards. The company is taking a plunge into PC power with the new Vision MX PSU series, which it had shown off at Computex 2018. This is probably the first fanless PSU with RGB LED illumination and 80 Plus Platinum-certified efficiency. Available in 550W and 650W variants for now, these units feature a very airy body design, which is needed to keep its hot innards cool. The space where a fan ought to be, is filled up with large heatsinks. It still ends up looking like you can sneak a 15 mm-thick fan in there on your own.

Mistel didn't put out finer specs of the Vision MX, but it likely features a single +12V rail design. You get full modular cabling, with enough juice and straws for a gaming PC with up to three graphics cards. Besides the 24-pin ATX, you get up to two 4+4 pin EPS, up to eight 6+2 pin PCIe connectors, a dozen SATA power, and 3 Molex connectors. The PSU features addressable RGB LED lighting across a 16.7 million-color palette. A standard 4-pin ARGB cable links the PSU to your motherboard or LED controller. The company plans to launch the higher-spec MX1000 and MX1250 later down the year, but those aren't fanless. The company didn't reveal pricing.

EVGA Unveils the Super G7 1000, The Most Compact 1000W PSU

EVGA showed off a prototype of the Super G7 1000, the most compact 1000-Watt power supply. This unit is just 125 mm in length, or about the length of mainstream 400-600W PSUs, but is fully modular, and packs a 1000W punch. The unit is about 17% smaller than a SuperNova 1000 G3, and is expected to be cheaper than it. This feat is made possible by some parts of the main PCB made to stand as perpendicular daughterboards. The unit still manages to tick all high-end checkboxes, including a single +12V design, DC-to-DC switching, 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, electrical protections, and full modular cabling. It measures 150 mm x 86 mm x 125 mm (WxHxD), and employs a 120 mm fan to keep cool. EVGA plans to launch this some time in September 2018.

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.

EVGA Announces Automatic Extension to New PSU Warranties For a Limited Time

EVGA today announced that they're starting a special, limited-time promotion on most of its PSU line-up. The offer, which lasts from tomorrow, June 5th, until December 31st 2018, will see the warranty period on specific families of EVGA PSUs automatically extended to up to 12 years of Limited Warranty. EVGA says this is a testament on their confidence in their own PSUs and their ability to withstand continuous usage throughout the years.

There are some tiers to this "automatic" warranty extension, however. Namely, different power supply families will see varying increases in their warranty periods - a way of acknowledging different longevity and quality of more expensive, more premium PSUs as well. As it stands, EVGA's -L Suffix graphics cards will see an upgrade to 4 Year Limited Warranty; -K Suffix PSUs to a 5 Year Limited Warranty; -V Suffix will be upgraded to a 7 Year Limited Warranty; -Y Suffix to 9 years; and finally, -X suffix will see the biggest increase to the maximum 12 years Limited Warranty. The increase amounts to 2 additional years of coverage period for each suffix of power supplies, but leaves out some PSUs in EVGA's catalog - namely -BR, -RX, and -RB suffixes. So pay good attention to what PSU you're buying if you're counting on getting an extended warranty for this critical component of your new - or revamped - build.
