We have used Thermaltake Toughpower 1200 watt power supplies for many years here on our test benches at HardOCP. Those have been extremely reliable units. How does its brand new Grand Platinum 1200W stand up to our testing in today's market? The high end power PSU market is much more competitive than it used to be.
Are you in the market of a case for that new Mini-ITX or MicroATX PC build? Corsair today shows off its Carbide Series® Air 240 High Airflow MicroATX and Mini-ITX PC Case. It's big, it's black, and it will remind you the the Borg. OK, maybe it is not that big, but big enough to allow mATX fans plenty of room for cooling and hot dual GPUs.
We give a [H]ard look at the upcoming 1000 watt Aurum PT today from FSP. It has built quite a good PSU, but value is still in question as we do not have a street price yet as it is not for sale yet in North America.
FSP is stepping its game up with its latest 1000 watt computer power supply. The new AURUM PT 1000W PSU comes to us touting full modularity, "Unique Airflow Technology," and "E-Sync Remote Sensing." This one is not for sale yet in North America, but you will know if it is worth its asking price when it finally arrives.
While you may or may not be in the market for a mATX sized computer case, the Thermaltake Core X2 mATX Cube Chassis has some interesting features for those looking to do custom water cooling and wanting to have some easy ways to show it off. All that aside, just how good of an mATX case is it?
EVGA has been hit and miss when it comes to PSUs. While it has produced some stinkers in the past, we have recently seen at least one excellent quality product from EVGA. So when we saw its 430W unit billed as having "UNBEATABLE VALUE" and is rated at 40C for full power operation, we knew we had to buy it.
Today we have the GIGABYTE GTX 980 G1 GAMING, which features the WINDFORCE 600W cooling system and a high factory overclock. We will make comparisons to the competition, find out how fast it is compared to a GTX 980, and you won't believe the overclocok we achieved! We will make both performance and price comparisons.
