Raidmax announces budget Raidmax XT PSUs
The American company Raidmax has announced the new budget-oriented Raidmax XT line of power supply units. The new line offers three models with power output of 300W, 400W and 500W and they carry the RX-300XT, RX-400XT and RX-500XT product names, respectively.
All models come in black-colored chassis that measure 150 x 140 x 86 mm and they are all ATX 12V/V2.3 compliant. The PSUs have a single 12V rail that can supply 21A (RX-300XT), 28A (RX-400XT) or 41A (RX-500XT) of power. Unfortunately for some users the PSUs are not modular, which is to be expected from budget-oriented PSUs but they all have 120 mm cooling fans, whose spinning speed is controlled via the integrated Smart Thermal Fan Control function that accelerates or decelerates the fan speed depending on the PSU load. The 300W model does not have an extra power connector for video cards, while the more powerful 400W model has a 6-pin connector and the 500W model has one 6-pin and another 6+2-pin connector.
All Raidmax XT models feature protection against overvoltage, overloading, shorts and other. The prices of the PSUs are still unclear as of now.
