This PSU is most likely made by Sirtec and is nothing special in terms of design. The white PCB may look nice but the used components aren't that appealing as the caps that filter the rails in the secondary side are provided by Suscon. Passive components are also used for the rectification of the +12V rail, which leads to higher energy dissipation than on mosfet solutions. The outdated group regulation scheme used in the secondary side will also affect performance with highly unbalanced loads on the rails.<br><br>
We wonder why NZXT decided to combine a modern external appearance and a fully modular cabling design with such an outdated design. We would highly prefer it if they added several native cables to then offer an independent regulation scheme instead of the lousy group regulation scheme. NZXT obviously invested into appearances instead of boosting performance under certain conditions.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859177/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859177" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859177/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859178/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859178" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859178/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859179/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859179" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859179/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
In the APFC, two Infineon IPW60R125CP fets and a CREE C3D08060A boost diode shape the current's waveform to match the voltage one. The hold-up cap is provided by Teapo (400 V, 390 μF, LH series). It is rated at only up to 85°C, and its capacity is rather small for the needs of this PSU, which our hold-up tests will clearly show.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859180/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859180" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859180/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859181/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859181" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859181/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859182/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859182" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859182/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
Things don't look so good on the secondary side since we only found two toroidal chokes, a clear indication that a group regulated scheme is used for the generation of the rails. NZXT should know better and avoid such an outdated technique in a modern PSU because it dooms crossload performance and doesn't allow the unit to meet the requirements Intel set for Haswell compatibility. NZXT even used less efficient SBRs (Schottky Barrier Diodes) instead of mosfets to further reduce cost.<br><br>
The +12V rail is rectified by four PFR40L60CT while the minor rails are handled by three Mospec S30D45C SBRs. To make things even worse, all filtering caps in the secondary are provided by Suscon, a company that isn't among our favorites when it comes to caps.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859186/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859186" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859186/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859187/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859187" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859187/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859188/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859188" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859188/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
We found a pair of electrolytic caps at the front of the modular PCB. These are for extra ripple filtering, and the soldering job on the rear side is a mess.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859191/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859191" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859191/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859192/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859192" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859192/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859193/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859193" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859193/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859194/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859194" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859194/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
Soldering quality on the main PCB is of acceptable quality, but we have seen much better soldering jobs in even more affordable units.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859200/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859200" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859200/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
The fan is provided by Hong Sheng, and its model number is A1425H12S (9 - 13.8 V, 0.39 A, 1800 RPM, 97.2 CFM, 36.2 dBA). It has sleeve bearings and is quite strong, which then leads to high output noise.<br><br><b>Note that all ripple and voltage results are from the unit(s) at full load</b><br><br><b>Voltage Regulation below</b><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859201/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859201" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859201/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 400px; height: 547px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859202/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859202" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859202/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 400px; height: 547px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859203/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859203" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859203/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 400px; height: 547px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859205/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859205" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859205/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 325px"></a><br><br><b>Ripple below</b><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859207/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1859207" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1859207/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 367px"></a><br><br>
End result this PSU is cheap for a reason as its not very good.<br><br>
All info and pictures came from techpowerup and the testing has been done by them so all credit goes to them not me.

Oh yeah sorry misread. The Hale 82 certainly sucks, there is a reason for the cheap price <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

There are 3 HALE 82 model<br><br>
First one is the M which is a Seasonic M12II<br><br>
The HALE 82-N which is a FSP model with ripple that goes berserk and out of ATX specifications when it gets too hot<br><br>
And the cheap crappy HALE 82 V2<br><br>
These are the avoid at all costs NZXT units<br><br>

To your point Shilka, I can confirm that the Hale82-N was a piece of crap at high temperatures. My case doesn't have the best ventilation and I fold 24/7 with a pair of GTX 480's under the Kuhler 620 mod.<br><br>
I could never figure out why, but when I folded just one 480 or the other 480, I was able to complete WU's at 875 core with no problems (1138mv). But when I cranked both of them up, the best they would do was 775core at the <i>same</i> 1138mv voltage.<br><br>
I was perplexed. Until I read a review of the Hale82-N. And I saw what putting one in a case with a pair of 480's does. My overclocked failed and I had lots of system instability when I really pushed the Hale. Ultimately, I replaced it with an Antec HCG-900 and couldn't be happier.<br><br>
When it comes to high heat environments, Delta FTW. <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

The question is why you would buy a NZXT Hale 82 PSU unless it was cheap due to sale or you wanted a white PSU<br><br>
The Seasonic M12II and G series units are cheaper than the NZXT ones<br><br>
If you wanted a white PSU, the PC Power & Cooling MKIII 750W+ units are all Superflower units like the Rosewill Capstone

Because the Hale82 is on our recommended PSU list last I checked which is a real shame. <img alt="hmmsmiley02.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/hmmsmiley02.gif"><br><br>
I'd love to have had an M12II instead of my previous Hale82.... I got a 900w Delta so I can't really complain

The list needs updating then <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
People visiting OCN shouldn't need to read <span style="text-decoration:line-through;">50</span> 30 pages of Shilka ranting to find a good PSU <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif"><br><br>
(No offense Shilka , you know I love your rants <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">)<br><br>
P.S. Shilka is missing a "why you should not buy a Corsair CS PSU"

The question is why you would buy a NZXT Hale 82 PSU unless it was cheap due to sale or you wanted a white PSU<br><br>
The Seasonic M12II and G series units are cheaper than the NZXT ones<br><br>
If you wanted a white PSU, the PC Power & Cooling MKIII 750W+ units are all Superflower units like the Rosewill Capstone</div>
</div>
<br>
Because the Hale82 is on our recommended PSU list last I checked which is a real shame. <img alt="hmmsmiley02.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/hmmsmiley02.gif"><br><br>
I'd love to have had an M12II instead of my previous Hale82.... I got a 900w Delta so I can't really complain</div>
</div>
I've seen Hale82 cheaper in some places.<br><br>
Anyhow, it's original Hale82 in the recommended list. That list hasn't been updated in a while; the intent was for EOL stuff to be removed. For that matter, it still has OCZ / PCP&C power supplies on it, and who knows how that whole division will pan out what with warranty and other support?

The list needs updating then <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
People visiting OCN shouldn't need to read <span style="text-decoration:line-through;">50</span> 30 pages of Shilka ranting to find a good PSU <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif"><br><br>
(No offense Shilka , you know I love your rants <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">)<br><br>
P.S. Shilka is missing a "why you should not buy a Corsair CS PSU"</div>
</div>

Stuff that doesn't support Haswell ought to be dropped (and other future CPUs that use low power states like C6/C7) IMO if that list is ever updated

Its not like Corsair and NZXT are the only ones guilty of having mediocre units<br><br>
EVGA and OCZ are very much guilty of the same and Cooler Master before they cleaned house was about the worst of them and Thermaltake was not much better<br><br>
Point is i could make a thread about each and every single unit not worth touching but if i did that i could go on forever and never stop<br><br>
So of course the most popular units that are mediocre gets a thread like the RM did<br><br>
The NZXT HALE 82 V2 is not very popular i have not seen any around<br><br>
Maybe because i helped avoid anyone buying it<br><br>
I dont care about brand and OEM mediocre is still mediocre no matter who makes and sells it and trash is still trash

Glad I found this thread. I'm in the market for a new PSU after my PC Power & Cooling silencer MK3 stopped giving power to my video card. And I was considering this unit because it was also white to match my case, and appeared to have a good value. Guess I'll have to hold off and keep searching for a replacement.<br><br>
OCZ may have bought PC P&C but the Silencer MK3 is a Seasonic OEM. So I guess I just ended up with a dud.
