Coolmax CUQ1350 1350

Introduction

I have been doing this whole computer hardware thing for a long time now and it still never amazes me how much things change. The jump in CPU speeds, the size of hard drives and even the amount of ram people are throwing in their rigs, but what I think amazes me the most is the amount of power a high-end gaming system requires. You can blame it on the video card industry for the most part. Nvidia and ATI have been putting out very impressive graphic cards that require a fair amount of juice, but we also we need the extra power to ensure a nice CPU overclock. Throw in the need for power to sustain a nice little RAID setup and all this had made power supplies with 1000 plus watts very common.
