Dont know if this is really NEWS NEWS, but here is a review of a new, powerful (and CHEAP) power supply from Silverstone. You can pick one up at case-mod for 140.00 USD!

Also, if you havn't checked out jG's other reviews, his site is awesome, and very professional. Check it out.

OMG a new review!!1 =o

Quote:


The +5V rail doesn't look as good. ATX12V specification's tolerance for +3.3V and +5V rails is 50mV. We hit 50mV as soon as test 3. And the ripple on the +5V is as much as 80mV by test 6.

Below, we can see we have a number of Teapo and Su'Scon caps on the secondary side.

I would buy one... if it was same price or cheaper then the OCZ GXS 700W.. if not then the PC P&C 750W Silencer would be the much better choice if tho its not modular.

this is certified for dual Geforce 8800GTX's, by the way. it's the cheapest PSU on that list, as well. haven't read the entire review yet, and maybe when i do, it will change my mind, but right now to me it looks like this wouldn't be a good investment for a high-end system (QX6700/FX-74, dual 8800GTX's).

I think the consensus from jG was that this was more fitting to be called a 700W PSU than a 750W PSU. I think the thing that spooks me is the ripple on the 5V rail, which almost exceeds ATX standards at the 3rd (of 7) tests.

However, in the discussion, most people (including jG) said that its a fine PSU and will suit most people's high end system (including dual 8800GTX).

Also, I would like to link to the INQ article that tested a quad core system with 2gb, 8800GTX in SLI, and a bunch of other crap and it only used about 430W under load: http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=36066.

So, yeah, it may not hold up to 750W tried and true. However, its also about 60 bucks cheaper than the competitor, 80% efficient at ~50% load, quiet, modular, and shealthed. Thats a great deal.
