I'm sure you have heard the phrase "it's quality not quantity." For most things, this holds true. But it especially holds true for computer power supplies. This review takes a look at the power supply from ePower. Read on to see how it tips the scales and passes the tests for quality and efficiency.
A bad rail and your computer isn't booting. A weak rail and no games for you. A really bad PSU and the possibility of bye-bye computer for you. You can't have a $500 graphics card being powered by a $50 no-name power supply. I am very strict about what is powering my computer. I am putting all the expensive hardware onto a single PSU, if it goes so could my computer, so I don't mess around with power supplies. Today we are taking a look at an interesting power supply from ePower.
If ePower isn't on your list of top power supply providers, it's okay for now. They aren't as well known as Antec or PC Power & Cooling. As a company, ePower has been around since 1990 making PSUs, cases, hard drive enclosures as well as a few other things. Today we will take a look at the ePower Tiger XLR-Type 1200 watt PSU. Yes, 1200 watts.
I know, that's a lot of watts. You're probably thinking when will you ever need that much power right? Well surprisingly you might need it in the future. CPUs are coming down in power, but all that gain and then more is going straight to the graphics cards. An 8800 GTX can pull almost 300watts out of that already. Throw a pair of them in a computer and there goes half of your power.
As you can see, this is a lot of power. But if you are building a powerful computer, you're going to need it. Let's take a closer look at the ePower Tiger XLR-Type 1200 watt PSU.
