The PC Power and Cooling 750 Quad Black Power Supply does exactly what you would expect a product from them to do; deliver rock solid power.  Big Bruin threw everything they could at it, and the voltages never varied.  Of course, you can't really expect it to live up to it's Silencer name when you are torture testing it; though there are still much louder PSUs out th

Cooler Master adds to their stack of cases

Subject: Cases and Cooling | September 4, 2007 - 02:00 PM |

The newest style of case from Cooler Master is the Cosmos, a very high end design for a case.  Most of the case is designed to be tool free, but for those few remain screws and for cable management, the Cosmos comes with it's own handy tool kit.  The size makes components easy to install, the four quiet fans will help your ears, and this case will be around for quite a while thanks to it's steel design.  You can

Antec's 850 TruePower Quattro has four 18A 12V rails that can handle up to 768W, as well as a nice modular design that makes it very easy to spot the dedicated PCI Express plugs.  Hi-Tech Reviews was worried that the single 80mm fan wouldn't be enough to keep this PSU cool, but it did the job admirably, and Antec offers a 3 year warranty in case anything goes wrong.

Quiet, and flexible cooling

Zaward's Twin Towers have incorporated some nice flexibility into their design.  They are fanless, which means they are a very large and not compatible with all motherboard/case combos, but more so than other huge coolers on the market now.  techPowerUp's testing also proved that you can expect better cooling from this heatsink than the one shipped with retail C2Ds.

A wish for Wings

Subject: Cases and Cooling | August 27, 2007 - 03:19 PM |

Thermaltake's new case design bears the name Wing RS 100.  Aimed at those that don't want to pay $100 or more for a case, but still want a 120mm fan and a nice look.  HARDWARE LOGIC found it to be a good example of it's kind, a low budget case you won't be disappointed with.

She canna take much more!!!

1600W!!! Seriously, think about that for a second.  The 12v rail can run up to 117A, and 1404W!  Originally Ultra had planned this model to be 2000W, but they couldn't get certification, and you would probably have needed to plug it into a 240W plug, and possible install 3-phase circuits.  [H]ard|OCP struggled to get this PSU up to it's full load, but did finally manage.

Crank up your silent power

If you need a bit more than the 450W you can get from the Corsair VX450W, try the Zalman 600W HS Heatpipe cooled PSU.   From the testing at Hi-Tech reviews, by choosing the Zalman you get a fairly reliable PSU, whose 120mm fan does indeed keep the noise down while still providing an exit for the hot air in your case.
