One of the things that virtually all power supplies have in common is the drab exteriors. However, NZXT has made a rather bold decision to bring to us their new HALE90 V2 series which showcase an all-white exterior. This move will set NZXT apart from the crowd just for the aesthetics alone. However, we shouldn'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 V2 1000W from NZXT is a premium-class unit that offers a fully modular design, unique and sleek styling, and claims excellent performance for demanding consumers.
While premium kilowatt power supplies may garner much of the attention and buzz in the marketplace, it is the more affordable, mid-range units that quietly bring in the profits. And that's where the Cougar GX-S 600W might offer a solution. While this unit isn't a behemoth like some we've seen of late, the GX-S 600W is 80PLUS Gold certified and comes with a price of $119. Seems pretty good so far, so let's take a closer look at this Cougar power supply and see how it fares.
Lately we've started seeing a few more 80Plus Platinum certified power supplies, and today we're looking at one from Thermaltake: the Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W. It's a rather stealthy aesthetic, but good looks and nice features will only get you so far though, as performance is what matters in the end. Coming with a price tag of $290, the Thermaltake Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W certainly brings a premium price tage, but does it have the top performance to match? Let's find out.
