We’ve seen a recent rise in popularity of dual GPUs, Quad CPUs, and more power hungry system components. While manufacturers are working on power efficiency for their products, the general trend has been higher energy consumption. Systems now feature more graphics cards, possibly due to their excellent output for Folding at Home, and we also see Quad Crossfire and Quad SLI setups. The need to power these systems in a stable environment is greater than ever, and the power supplies required to feed these setups are a select group of products.
Today we’re looking at the Ximgatek NRP-HC1201 1200W power supply, a unit that feels like a tank and almost looks like one given its aesthetics. Let’s take a look and see if it’s boom or bust.
