I have to say right off the bat that Iím a huge fan of modular PSUs. I canít express enough how much easier it is to work within a computer when only the cables you actually need are present. Today weíll be taking a look at the GPX750 Modular PSU by 2theMax, to see how it measures up.
Let's stop for a moment and think about what qualities are most important in a PSU. For starters, it needs to deliver enough power to drive your system. Second, this power needs to be consistent. If your power levels fluctuate too much depending on load, it can damage your equipment. So, strong and consistent, that's a good start.
What else is important? Well, how about cooling? If you have a PSU delivering stable power of a decent amount, then it's undoubtedly generating a good amount of heat. So your PSU needs a cooling system that will keep it cool and operating like new.
Is that it? Oh no. With today's demanding users, a PSU needs to be quiet, if not completely silent. Who wants to be playing the next generation horror game, only to hear your PSU humming when the music drops down low to spook you out?
Finally, a much liked but not completely necessary option is for the PSU to be of a modular design. This means that you can pick and choose which cables are attached to the PSU. Don't have a PCIe card requiring a 12V lead? Then don't even plug that cable in. Modular PSUs are especially popular with people who build their own systems, and the growing community of case modders.
Today, I'll be examining the 2theMax GPX750 PSU, and seeing how it stacks up in each of the above categories.
