The power supply that we are throwing on the test bench today is from Mushkin. While many of our readers are familiar with Mushkin, few are aware that they provide power supplies and are more familiar with their memory storage devices. Founded in 1994, Mushkin's headquarters still resides in Denver, Colorado while having numerous offices around the world. Mushkin offers something for just about every computer out there, from the business user to the gamer. With customers such as Apple and NASA, the folks at Mushkin know how to make a quality product.
Mushkin announced their latest power supplies in late February of this year. The Joule series of power supplies have received three new members; the 700W, 800W and 1000W which are intended to provide the extreme power needed by today's newest processors and video cards. Mushkin claims that these new power supplies deliver clean, smooth power at extremely high levels of efficiency. The unit we are taking a look at today is the MKNPSJL800, or Mushkin Enhanced Joule 800W power supply.
Keep reading as we take a detailed look into it and find out if it is worth your hard earned money.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The I/O specifications of the power supply reveal some rather beefy rails for am 800W power supply. Individually, they are capable of more than the recently reviewed Antec HCP-1200 and have a combined total output of 150W. There is a pair of 12V rails capable of 32A each for a total of 768W of power. Total combined output for the PSU is 800W.
This is the first power supply that we have seen in a while that isn't packed with features start to finish. While the Mushkin Joule 800W power supply does have short circuit, over voltage, over power and over current protection, it lacks the over temperature protection. The unit does feature an 80Plus Silver rating and has fully sleeved cables, but none of them are modular. The Mushkin Joule 800W also isn't rated for 100% continuous output at 50C.
Mushkin's Joule 800W power supply can be found with some quick searching, but isn't readily available at the usual e-tailers such as Newegg and TigerDirect. Mushkin lists the unit with an MSRP of $127.65, but it is available on their website for $111.00 plus shipping. Some searching on Google for the part number will get you a final price of $110.00 shipped from RamExperts. Mushkin backs the Joule 800W power supply with a rather short two-year warranty.
