BFG entered the power supply market just about two years ago, introducing some decent products that in the end really did not stand out in a crowd. This definitely went against the grain for BFG. But fast forward to early 2008 and their hard fast determination to innovate and release a unique product resulted in the BFG ES 800. While it may have looked similar to other power supplies on the outside, the internals were certainly different. This new design delivered on the promise of a unique and effective power supply design and reviewers were impressed.
Today we have the opportunity to review the continued evolution of this unique design in the form of the BFG EX-1200 Watt power supply. Unlike the ES 800 before it, this power supply is definitely not shy on the latest features and power capacity. It boasts modular cabling, six PCI-E cables, a whopping 40 amps available on each of the 12V rails and something called frequency conversion technology to improve efficiency at lower loads.
So, we have a power supply that is efficient with low power delivery while offering huge capacity. It is kind of like a friend with a pick-up truck, always there with additional capacity when you need it. Sounds like a winner to me. Let's see if the bench tests tell another story. But, before we do, let's take a closer look at the BFG EX-1200 Watt power supply.
