Enermax Revolution87Enermax dedication to excellence has continued on through their products since then. We have seen it in the MaxRevo and Platimax, hopefully in our next review subject, the Revolution87+. When building high-end machines, the power supply is often considered the heartbeat of the machine. And with that being said you cannot go cheap or use inferior units when investing a nice sum of money into a PC.

Thermaltake Smart Series 730WThermaltake is claiming that the new Smart series power supply is just that. The Smart series is only offered in a non-modular version for now. But the power range within the spectrum of everybody building a system from basic web browsing to gaming that reason is 430 to 730 watts.

NZXT HALE82 750WMany of you many remember back when we reviewed the NZXT HALE90 Gold rated power supply. An awesome modular unit that came in a nice white paint job. The high quality parts as well as the efficiency rating made it a big winner but also made it a bit on the expensive side. Well, NZXT is at it again with a new Bronze rated PSU that should be easier on everyone’s pocket.

Enermax PlatimaxJust a couple of weeks ago we took at one of the best and largest power supplies we have seen here at Pro-Clockers. It was from Enermax and boasted 1350 watts of pure power and was called the MaxRevo. That particular unit was aimed at the end user needing tremendous amounts of stable power. But Enermax is at it again yet with another power supply that is a little more refined than the MaxRevo, but sporting quite a bit less power. The Platimax is based on the highly efficient 80PLUS Platinum rating which requires the power supplies to maintain 90% efficiency at 20% load, 92% @ 50% load and 89% @ 100% load.

Jou Jye BW-B620JLThe power supply we will be looking at today is the B620JL, a 620 watt unit from their gaming line. The unit is Bronze rated meaning it has, at a minimum, 80% efficiency rating at 20% and 100% loads, with 85% efficiency at 50% load. Jou Jye have met and exceeded these efficiencies, considering it "82Plus". While there are many power supplies on the market with a Bronze rating, there is something the B620JL has that makes it different from many of the other units on the market. What could this relatively unknown company offer above the rest? Read on and find out, but we'll give you a hint: it involves two power supplies...

CM Silent Pro HybridThe Silent Pro Gold series being one of Cooler Master's best selling power supplies, which they now have decided to take it one step further. Entitled the Silent Pro Hybrid, the new series adds a feature that many will find to be pretty helpful when the load and heat begins to build up. A fan controller is thrown into the packaging to allow the user to dial in the desired speed of the cooling fan for the power supply. So, if noise becomes an issue while computing, simply knock it down a notch.
