We have been reviewing a good number of the newest power supplies from several manufacturers of late and they have been proving to be good – excellent performers in our testing’s.  The one thing they mostly all have in common is the drab exteriors for the most part, however, NZXT has made a rather bold decision to bring to us their new HALE90 PSU Series which are done in a totally all “white” theme.  This move will set NZXT apart from the crowd just for the esthetics alone.

We won’t be buying a power supply solely based on its color; it still must meet the power requirements for our individual system’s requirements.  The new HALE90 Series from NZXT is available in four power configurations: 550W, 650W, 750W, 850W and a 1000W unit for those with the most demanding components. 

Today with the lure of dual graphics cards and wonderfully overclocked quad core processors, we understand the need for more efficient power supplies that offer more horsepower, particularly those in the 600-800W range.  Units in this segment are generally strong enough to power some very beefy systems, yet not terribly expensive and prohibitive to buy. The need to power these systems in a stable environment is just as important as ever.  To that end, consumers want quality and performance at a price that won’t break the bank, and today we have a unit that promises just such an enticing combination.

Today we’re looking at the NZXT HALE90 650W power supply, a unit that comes loaded with features all wrapped up in a new all white theme.  But how well does it perform? Let’s take a look.

NZXT was established in 2004 with the objective of designing unique products catered for hardware enthusiasts and gamers. NZXT has won numerous awards from media and publications from across the globe with a product line spanning from gaming chassis, power, and gaming input devices. Formed by gamers, NZXT continues to expand into new horizons and push the envelope further with each product unveiling.
