The power supply might be the single most under appreciated component in a system build (don't go generic, folks), but at the same time, that doesn't mean you should overspend on way more power than you need. If you're putting together a budget build, EVGA hopes you'll consider its new 600B, a 600W PSU with 80 Plus Bronze certification, meaning it's over 80 percent efficient at typical loads.
After achieving 80 Plus Gold certification for its original Supernova 1000W power supply (1000 G2), EVGA is back with a newer revision that now boasts an 80 Plus Platinum badge, meaning it's a little more efficient than its predecessor. The new Supernova 1000 P2 features 92 percent efficiency under typical loads and has a new "ECO Thermal Control Fan System" that supposedly eliminates fan noise during load operations.
Is your power supply (PSU) certified to work with Intel's 4th generation Core processor (Haswell) line without hiccups? Lest there be any doubt, EVGA specifically lists its new 500B PSU as being Haswell ready.
Could you take full advantage of a 1,300 watt power supply (PSU)? Talk about making others totally envious! Assuming you need a herculean PSU, EVGA aims to deliver with its new Supernova 1300 G2, a monster unit that's 80 Plus Gold certified to deliver up to 90 efficiency under "typical loads" and backed by a generous 10 year warranty to boot. This could be the last PSU you buy for a long, long time.
EVGA, a company that's best known for pumping out Nvidia-based graphics cards, is so confident in its new SuperNova 1000 G2 power supply that it's backing the unit with a 10-year warranty. Of course, we learned from watching Tommy Boy (NSFW) that guarantees are only as good as what's inside the box, and in this instance, EVGA is packaging a high-end power supply that's 80 Plus Gold certified with up to 90 percent efficiency under typical loads.
Little Billy's in the kitchen banging pans together, Mary-Jo and Erica are in the basement arguing over who's turn it is to watch Netflix, and the dog's chasing the cat all over the house. Soon evening will come and they'll all fall fast asleep, giving you the sweet, sweet silence you've been longing for all day. If only your PC would do the same.

Not all power supplies will support Haswell's zero load design, Enermax says.
Intel's Haswell refresh is coming, and when it does, it will deliver better performance, much improved integrated graphics, and superior power efficiency that, according to Enermax, only a handful of power supplies are able to take advantage of. Enermax is referring to the new C6 and C7 states that are able to reduce CPU power consumption to a mere 0.05A. Some Ivy Bridge chips draw up to ten times more in a minimum power state.
Are these the best PC power supplies in the world?
We're taught from a young age that it's good to have goals, and Cooler Master's are anything but modest. The case and cooling company wants to be known as the leading power supply brand in all the world, and the way it plans to achieve that lofty goal is by introducing its new V Series PSUs. These new power supplies eschew a multiple rail design in favor a single +12V rail, but what's most impressive is the rated efficiency.
The new Triathlor Series is available with or without modular cables.
After a five-year run spanning from 2008 until now, Enermax has decided "the time has come to say goodbye to the Modu82+" family of power supplies. In its place is the new Triathlor series, which Enermax promises will be in existence for many years to come. There are two versions to choose from, the regular Triathlor with wired cables and Triathlor FC (Flexible Cable management) with flat modular cables.
Admittedly we may have a exaggerated a tad with our title (emphasis on "tad"), but holy moly, what an insane amount of wattage. The new Hercules 1600W power supply from Rosewill (Newegg's house brand) is a beast that is probably bigger than what the wiring in most homes is capable of supplying, at least at full bore. Speaking of which, can you imagine the system it would take to fully stress a PSU like this?
