NZXT Launches Its First Fully Modular Enthusiast PSU

NZXT Announces New HALE90 V2 Enthusiast-Class Power Supplies Las Vegas, NV – Like a heart supplying the life fuel to the human body, an excellent power supply will deliver more than just raw power to a computer. We believe that the power supply is a component that is dangerously overlooked, simply because it’s functionality is simple. Within simplicity however, is a complex device that derives its potency squarely on engineering expertise. Today, NZXT ushers in a rethinking of power delivery with the new HALE90 V2. Engineering came first. Our team painstakingly examined every facet of a power supply’s performance: ripple, noise, coherence, sustained wattage, efficiency, operating temperatures, and even wiring, to deliver a PSU suitable for high up-time server environments but in a package for enthusiasts. While challenging, we found ways to overcome compromises. Peeking into the HALE90 V2, you find server-grade features such as solid-bar interconnects between the main board and the cable-host board – you’ll find no wires there. With the mindset of high-density servers, our engineers also optimized the layout of the main board, improving airflow efficiency. The distinctive NZXT Phantom-white PCB in the HALE90 V2 conceals yet another innovation: white solder-resist. Providing ten times the thermal conductivity of normal solder-resist, white solder-resist helps to improve isolation an order of magnitude beyond typical power supplies. Some may consider the inside...
