PSU Evga 500B: a Perfect ‘Price-Quality’ Combination

Evga, a merited designer of a large spectrum of PC components, is about to release a new power supply unit, entitled 500B (codename: 100-B1-0500-KR). As seen from the title, this model features 500W power and is oriented at saving users, rather than enthusiasts. The unit is already marked by 80Plus Bronze certificate, due to 80% efficiency level on ordinary loading. Upon the whole, 500B is thought to be a perfect ‘price-quality’ combination, ready to comply with all basic users’ requirements.

Evga 500B employs a single +12V rail that ensures a stable power supply to the connected components and guarantees compatibility with new equipment. The unit is estimated for 40A current at +12V rail. Stability of operation might be secured also by means of an onboard protection system; it saves the system from power disruptions, overloading, low input voltage, high voltage, and from short circuit.

To continue, quiet and reliable PSU operation is a merit of a low-noise fan. It …

Power Supply SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 750

The range of power supply consists of five series with different positioning. The top series Strider Gold Evolution presents four models ranging from 750 to 1200 watts. Power Supply SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 750 comes in a cardboard outer box with a glossy print, made with a predominance of black and gold colors. Power supply enclosure has matte texture and looks quite stylish, but without too much glitz and tinsel, that pleases.

All parameters are specified on the body the power supply in full. +12 VDC power bus is declared in the amount of 744 W. This value is between the corresponding values of standard power supplies 750 and 800 W, the ratio of the power bus +12 VDC and full power is 0.992. This model can be completely off the wires. Such solution may add some convenience in assembling the system. The number of connectors and their placement on the wiring harness is optimal, at least very close to that of today for the power supply of such power. Of course, it would …

Scythe Intros a Universal CPU Cooler Iori

Scythe, a renowned developer of cooling solutions, introduces a new CPU cooler, entitled Iori. Due to an offbeat framework, the model is primarily targeting small-sized systems with mini-ITX and micro-ATX motherboards. It is compatible with practically all modern platforms (Intel 775/115x/1366 and AMD FM1/FM2/FM2+/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+), save for Intel LGA2011 and AMD Socket AM1. The cooler is already on free sale at the price tag of 24.50 EUR.

Scythe Iori is all about nickel-plated heatsink with a copper base, three heatpipes that pierce the plates twice, and a single 100 mm axial GlideStream 100 fan, located on the top of the framework. The latter employs a sleeve bearing and supports PWM technology. It enables the variation of rotational speeds within the ranges of 300-1800 RPM. Herein, the fan is able to produce up to 43.74 CFM at the maximal noise level of 26.7 dB.

Taking into account that all the components on the small-sized motherboards’ PCB are tightly soldered, …
