Aerocool debuts new Xpredator PSUs
Aerocool has expanded its existing Xpredator power supply unit line-up with the addition of four new models that offer 80 Plus Gold efficiency. The new PSU models target hardware enthusiasts and gamers and offer wattage that starts at 550W and reaches 1000W.
The new PSUs come with a semi-modular design for improved cable management and airflow and thanks to the 80 Plus Gold certification they reach efficiency as high as 92 per cent. The units offer a single 12V rail with extremely high current output. The maximum voltage deviation in the new models is ± 3 per cent thanks to the implementation of a DC-DC design, which is lower than Intel’s requirements for ± 5 per cent. The PSU internals are cooled by a 120 mm cooling fan in the cases of the 550GM, 650GM and 750GM models, while the 1000-watt 1000GM model uses a 140 mm cooling fan. In all cases the fans operate at low noise levels, though – the fan inside the 550-watt 550GM model spins at 800 rpm or below, while the fans inside the 1000GM and 650GM/750GM models spin at 900 rpm and 1000 rpm or below, respectively, before reaching 70 per cent PSU load. The new PSUs are also Intel ATX 12V v2.4 compatible and meet all EPS v2.92 standards. They offer enough connectors for high-end systems and are long enough to reach all components inside your PC case that require power. In addition all Aerocool PSUs are equipped with protection mechanisms such as Over Voltage (OVP), Over Current Protection (OCP) for 3.3V and 5V, Over Power (OPP), Under Voltage (UVP), Short-Circuit (SCP) and Surge/Inrush Current Protections (SIP).
The four new Aerocool PSU models will be on the market by the end of this week. The 550GM model will sell for EUR 75/USD 80.90, while the 650GM model will cost EUR 83/USD 89.90. The more powerful 750GM and 1000GM models will sell for EUR 88.50/USD 95.90 and EUR 139/USD 150.90, respectively. All prices are without VAT.
