NZXT to Launch a New Line of Powerful PSUs

Developers from NZXT decided to revive a series of prime power supply units, codenamed HALE90, launched in 2010 by designing a new line of powerful units. The line has been entitled HALE90 V2 and includes three models of 850W, 1000W, and 1200W power. All three models are notable by the availability of 80Plus Gold certificate that verifies their high-performance and reliability.



Unlike the majority of similar products, HALE90 V2 are housed in casings of white color with black insertions that add some elegance to the overall design. The units are characterized by a totally modular cabling (including 24-pin ATX connector); this is called to dramatically simplify the accomplishment of individual wire sheath on modding. One of the peculiarities of this PSU line is rigid connection of the mainboard with the cable board, while the majority of rival PSUs employ flexible wires.


Voltage 12V generation is realized by means of a single rail. The platform is developed according to …

Platinum PSU Huntkey FX500SE Review

Nowadays more and more PSU manufacturers tend towards a better acoustic ergonomics of their products. Sure thing this is linked with the desire of customers to have high-performance but quiet systems. There is small wonder that traditional power supplies are rather noisy, due to air fans, so the manufacturers invented a sophisticated solution: hybrid cooling. It presupposes two working modes: active — with fans on and passive — with fans off. Huntkey is one of the companies that successfully implemented this invention into proprietary devices. Its FX500SE is a good example of efficiency combined with quiet operation. Plus, it provides users with appropriate connectivity facilities.
