Five Way Performance PSU Roundup

It wasn't too terribly long ago that the power supply was just another component that had to be bought when it was time to build a new system. But times have changed with the advent of the newer more powerful computers hitting the market. Come join Mike "Darthtanion" Wright as he takes a look at five power supplies and gives some solid answers as to whether it might be just the right one for your own system.

Introduction

 

It wasn't all that long ago when you could just go through a local retailer and toss about any available power supply into your system. But with the way that processors and vital components have evolved, this simply isn't an option anymore. You just have to have a solid performing PSU or you're asking for instabilities in your rig.

 

So what better way to find out what works well than having a little roundup. We'll be looking at five power supplies from Raidmax, SilenX, Thermaltake and Vantec. The units range from 400 watts to 500 watts and should give us a good look into the abilities of a range of models that are currently available through retail channels.

 

So sit back and we'll see what features these different varieties have and also how well they were able to maintain their power rails in an overclocked system.
