In this review, it's that time again and we are pleased to present an even greater test than before, we have raised our usual number of tested power supplies of 6 to 8 copies, using new measurement techniques and better tests included in our portfolio to offer an even better comparison can, the only problem is quite different this time, the basic performance of the test candidates. This varies from shallow 420 watts and 600 watts on the upper limit located as always, we test the power supplies in the next review of performance with accurate measurements on the 3.3 volt and also newly added to the 12 volt rail.
Furthermore, we check the stability of power supplies as well as the background noise at idle and full load, as the power of a PC now also decide whether a system is stable or sometimes generates resets or other system problems, these
tests are of great interest to all readers. In view of the constant increase in power consumption and the burden of your wallet, this time we also look at the power dissipation and efficiency of power supplies and thrown remeasured, with amazement we have not identified significant differences.
The trend towards ever more power seems in spite of "silent PC hype" to take no end, more and more consumers want a high-performance power supply, not without reason, in spite of escalating ecological crises, consumption increases significantly per computer. Each user should be aware that he needs is far from a 600 watt power supply, if he wants to use a normal computer for example for overclocking, for permanent increase performance and silent operation simultaneously exclude each other in principle, it is that one has to decide whether the computer or the computer gently and with it the power supply can be extremely powerful.
However, our review clearly shows that even very quiet 450 watt power supplies in high-performance computers can be perfectly adequate and still offer significant advantages in performance efficiency. Similarly, there are now extremely efficient 600 watt power supplies that can be very quiet nevertheless, all subjects claim to have come to rest in the best performance even in the computer.
