Missed the live stream?  You fool!  But here is the reply of the event and quite honestly it turned out better than I expected.  If you don't learn something about power supplies by watching this, I'll eat my shoe.

Countless readers ask us for advice on power supplies.  What makes power supplies different, how do you calculate how big of a PSU you need, are single rail units the best?  That is just a sample of the inquiries that find their way to us.

After months of scheduling, I was finally able to wrangle in our resident power supply expert, Lee Garbutt, responsible for basically all of the power supply testing on PC Perspective since the beginning, for a LIVE stream to talk all about power supplies!

Learn about Power Supplies with Ryan and Lee - Live Stream

10am PT / 1pm ET - July 17th

PC Perspective Live! Page

What can you expect to learn during our live stream?  Here is a sample of the topics we are going to cover:

Why are PC power supplies called switchers or switching power supplies?

What qualities characterize a good PSU?

What is Power Factor Correction and is it the same thing as Efficiency?

What’s all the hype about single versus multi rail output? Which is better? And what’s a rail anyway?

Let’s look inside a PSU and show me what the main components are?

Let’s talk about how you test a PSU. What tests do you perform? What equipment do you use, etc.?

We'll be monitoring the chat room in our PC Perspective Live! page for more questions during the stream of course but if you have any pressing issues you want to be sure are addressed, please leave a note in our comments below!  For those of you that CAN join us live, we have another reason to attend...PRIZES!!

EVGA was kind enough to donate a EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G2 PSU and a SuperNOVA NEX750G Gold power supply!  What do have to do to enter?  Just be in the live stream and pay attention - we'll have the details there during the LIVE stream!

Again, that's July 17th at 1pm ET / 10am PT for an informative discussion about the power supplies that make all of our PC gaming goodness possible!
