Cooler Master V Series Power Supplies Now Available in North America
Author: Cássio Lima Date: May 9, 2013 - 7:42 AM PST
Category: Power
More Info: http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/news.php?year=2013&month=May&p...
Power

Cooler Master has announced the entrance of the V Series Power Supply (PSU) line to North American markets.

Developed to be the highest quality, Cooler Master carefully sourced every aspect of the V Series PSU line to produce a high-efficiency and stable power supply. This operational stability includes being highly efficient even at low loads – far exceeding the parameters of the breadth of operational efficiency exhibited by a typical 80 Plus Gold PSU.

A single, powerful rail platform channels the full power of V Series PSUs with outstanding voltage stability, ripple suppression, and efficiency.   

These higher quality components include the highest grade Japanese electrolyte and solid capacitors, a custom PCB interface, and high quality 42 mm transformers.

All of which are among a few of the integral parts that make the V Series a great power supply.

V Series PSUs include a 135 mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) fan. This bearing type offers superior performance at lower noises while lasting far longer than the typical PSU fan. The real-world result is that V-series PSUs are extremely quiet, even under full load while still keeping cool.

When considering ease of use and ability to manage cables, fully modular flat ribbon cables are among the best. These give users the ability to compress and arrange their cables in clean and compact ways not possible with traditional and individually sleeved cabling - saving time and enabling builds with the best possible airflow.

It supports 4th Generation Intel Core Desktop Processor C6/C7 Power States allowing the processor to go from C0 (active) to C7 (Deep Power Down Mode) which helps provide maximum power savings.

The V Series will be available in 700 W, 850 W, and 1000 W models. Price and availability may vary based on region. This release is meant for the U.S. and Canada regions only.

Enermax PSUs are Ready for Intel Haswell CPUs
Author: Cássio Lima Date: May 1, 2013 - 11:39 AM PST

More Info: http://www.enermax.co.uk/news/?tx_ttnews%5Btt_news%5D=2276&tx_ttne...
Power

Intel has just released more details about the new Haswell processors. It sets new benchmarks in terms of energy efficiency. The new C6 and C7 states are able to reduce the CPU power consumption to just 0.05 A while previous Ivy Bridge processors draw up to ten times more minimum current.

But the positive progress of the CPU technology is subject to certain restrictions, because only few power supplies will be able to deliver stable voltages at such low loads. End users are therefore groping in the dark with no clues if their own power supply will be compatible with the new energy functions of Intel Haswell CPUs. PSU manufacturers usually do not state the possible minimum load of their products.

Enermax makes a step forward and publishes a PSU compatibility list. All current high-end and mid-range models from Enermax are already prepared for the upcoming Intel processors. They are equipped with a DC-to-DC converter which enables the so-called ZERO Load Design. These power supplies will deliver rock-stable voltages even at 0 W load. Also the owners of older Enermax power supplies can be relieved: The manufacturer applies the ZERO Load Design already in all high-end power supplies since the Revolution85+ series which was launched in 2008.

Platimax Series

  • Platimax 500W (EPM500AWT)
  • Platimax 600W (EPM600AWT)
  • Platimax 750W (EPM750AWT)
  • Platimax 850W (EPM850EWT)
  • Platimax 1000W (EPM1000EWT)
  • Platimax 1200W (EPM1200EWT)
  • Platimax 1500W (EPM1500EGT)

Revolution87+ Series

  • Revolution87+ 550W (ERV550AWT-G)
  • Revolution87+ 650W (ERV650AWT-G)
  • Revolution87+ 750W (ERV750AWT-G)
  • Revolution87+ 850W (ERV850EWT-G)
  • Revolution87+ 1000W (ERV1000EWT-G)
