The power of the Greek gods not only makes for great performance, but amazing beauty. The Gamdias Astrape P1 PSU is one of the greatest looking power supplies to date. The only thing holding it back is a high price, and hopefully time will improve that to more competitive levels.
Enermax offers an excellent PSU with the MaxTytan. Sleemax is a great feature for those who don't want to sleeve cables themselves. The RevoBron is a solid budget option that doesn't cut important features for a clean computer build. Respective to their budgets, each unit has great quality.
The PSU is extremely important to a computer, yet it can also be hard to budget for in the build. The Rosewill Valens offers Gold efficiency to help with quality, but has an attractive price point as well. The semi-modular design is great and while the fan can be noticeable, the performance is solid.
The Revolution DUO feels like a great unit in quality. The dual fan does well and while smaller fans tend to be noisier, Enermax's control knob can completely mitigate the noise. The cable sleeve looks good, but it doesn't hid colors at the ends before going into the connector. No modular = no good.

Antec just announced that it’s highest end PSU, the HCP 1300 Platinum, is being released to new markets. What makes this interesting is they released this unit in India first, but now it looks like it’s hitting the American and European markets and possibly others that were harder to find mentions of. While the question may still remain of why a California based company would release a unit in India first, what makes this PSU more interesting is some new features that might be telling of the future of motherboards. The first feature of interest is the OC Link Technology. This actually came out a bit ago and allows two PSUs to be connected simultaneously to reach the power demands of a super high end system. With 1300 watts of power, it seems hard to imagine needing more than one unit, however, dual GPU cards can easily max out power demands once 2 or 3 of them are set up in one system. This could mean that there is a future for more dual GPU GFX Cards in the development pipes for the system builder. The more realistic reason though, is that with bit coin miners buying up power intensive AMD cards and running them 24/7, they need PSUs to have more than enough headroom over the power requirements of their systems so there’s less chances of burn outs. The other interesting feature to note is the inclusion of a 28-pin motherboard connector. The idea behind this is to future proof the PSU, but with new tech being more power efficient, it’s hard to im...
The Cougar CMX V3 850W is an enthusiast-oriented mid-range power supply, and while this unit isn't a beast like some we've seen of late, it is 80PLUS Bronze certified and comes with a partly modular design, with the intent of providing value to consumers on a budget. Let's take a closer look.
