Modular Power Supply 650W Chieftec A80

Evaluating the effectiveness of modern computer power supplies, the most attention is paid to their coefficient of performance (COP) at a given load — usually means of 20%, 50% and 100%. At the same time, not less important requirement, established by standard 80PLUS should be considered. That means — the preservation of this level of performance for all occurring in the world supply voltage variations, that is in the range of 100-240 V.



The standard rules of 80PLUS at different levels (Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, etc.) are performed for two voltage 115 V and 230 V. In both cases, the normalized PS should show the efficiency of not less than specified for each category level. Not usual power supply CTG-650C model of the new A-80 series from the Chieftec company is interesting in that it has officially claimed efficiency of 85% or more, but only for nets 220-240 V.


As the advantages of such solution can immediately be noted a lower price, due to less stringent …

Chieftec Launches Smart SFX-500GD-C Power Supply

Chieftec has been always known as a quick-change artist in the hardware market. As a rule, SFX power supply units can’t boast high power or productive cooling. However, far otherwise is Chieftec that proves the contrary. Its latest Smart SFX-500GD-C solution is a combination of an astounding efficiency and a full-blown 120 mm fan. Due to this, the model has been certified to work as a part of Nvidia SLI and AMD CrossFireX graphics configurations.



Chieftec Smart SFX-500GD-C features 125x135x64 mm dimensions. Offering 500 W power, it provides for more than 90% efficiency in the majority of workloads. Herein, there in small wonder that this model has won 80Plus Gold certificate. Reliability is the other distinctive feature ascribed to this PSU. It is backed by a single +12V rail with the output capability of 40A. An overall charging power of +3.3V and +5V rails makes up 150W.


This allows for the creation of a high-performance system with a flagship CPU and a top-tier GPU. …

Overview of the Gigabyte GA-Z270-Gaming K3 Motherboard

Gigabyte GA-Z270-Gaming K3 has just basic features, of the additional controllers there is only ASM2142, which brings two last-generation USB sockets to the rear panel, which means that today it will be possible to concentrate completely on the manufacturer’s innovations. The letter K in the model name helps to identify the latest version of the Killer adapter from Qualcomm Atheros in the network controller.


Of the bright features, the presence of two SATA-E sockets and only one compact type M.2 can be identified. The configuration of NVIDIA SLI is not provided here.
