PSU Enermax Revolution87+ 750W Review

This year has become rather successful for Enermax, a well-known manufacturer of power supply units. The company supplemented its product lines with six series combined into four major groups: entry-level, athlete, royal, and gold class. Revolution87+ series belongs to the Gold Class group and involves five models (from 550W to 1000W power). Model Revolution87+ 750W is distinguished not only by the availability of 80Plus Gold certificate, but also by an original branded platform developed by Enermax specifically for this series.


Enermax has implemented a few striking technical solutions in its Revolution87+ 750W power supply unit. The first attractive feature is a composite control over the main inverter. The control is realized by traditional pulse-width modulation method, as well as by simultaneous involvement of pulse-frequency modulation (the combination of width and frequency in control process).

Upon the whole, this PSU model is able to demonstrate up …

Intel to Take Care about Power-Efficiency of Ivy Bridge Processors

The rising competition between the two giants in the manufacture of processing units, Intel and AMD, makes each of the two invent ever newer technologies and implement them in their products. The attempts to dominate in the market and win as many consumers usually develop into brand new approaches and brand new advanced facilities.

In this light, Intel is going to upgrade its Ivy Bridge processors to make them more power-efficient. But power-efficiency does not imply that processing units will show less performance; quite the contrary, the manufacturer is willing to combine an utmost performance with the maximal power efficiency level.

Currently, the most power-saving processors of Ivy Bridge generation can be found in mobile devices on Windows platform and in Apple MacBook Air devices. Their TDP level is recorded at 17W. As appears from the above mentioned, the TDP level in upgraded Ivy Bridge processors will be lower than 17W, though the developers do not voice the margin …

Zalman Intros CNPS8X Optima CPU Cooler

Zalman is considered to be a key player in PC hardware field mainly due to a perfect combination of quality, functionality and price tags. CPU coolers are not an exception, since they ensure efficient and low-noise cooling of hard-hitting processors. The company’s latest CNPS8X Optima cooler is all about innovation that turns it around. Improved framework makes the model compatible with practically all platforms from Intel and AMD, save for Intel Socket LGA 2011/2011-v3/1366.

Zalman CNPS8x Optima employs a large heatsink, three copper heatpipes, and a single 92 mm fan. The latter is based on long-life bearing and features 4-contact connector. It is able to rotate at about 1200 RPM, producing not more than 30 dB noise.

The list of innovative technologies integrated into the cooler includes:

— Direct Touch Heatpipe (DTH) technology wherein all three heatpipes are in direct touch with a heatspreader. This accelerates heat dissipation process, enhancing overall …
