The OEM PSU manufacturer HEC, which works with companies such as Aerocool, EVGA, OCZ, Thermaltake, Xigmatek, be quiet!, Fractal Design and others is getting ready to release new power supply units that will offer wattage of 500 – 700 watts. The PSUs will be combined in two lines – Win+ Power 3s (Win3S) and Win+ Power LT2 and will be commercially available starting on February 12 this year.
The HEC Win+ Power 3s line will include three models with power output of 500W, 600W and 700W. All these PSUs will have 80 Plus Bronze efficiency, a single +12V rail, 120 mm cooling fans, protection against overheating, overloading, overvoltage, undervoltage, short circuits and more and will measure 140 x 150 x 86 mm. The 700W model will be able to output 56A/672W over the single +12V rail, while the 500W and 600W models will be able to offer 40A and 49A over the same rail. The 700W PSU will have four 6+2 PCI-E power connectors, while the 500W and 600W models will offer one and two PCI-E 6+2 connectors, respectively. As to pricing the 700W model will sell for around USD 91, while the weaker 500W and 600W models will cost USD 66 and USD 74. All Win3S models will offer a 3-year warranty too.
The Win+ Power LT2 line will have two models only with power output of 500W and 600W. They will look a lot like the Win3S line on the outside and on the inside but will come with a weaker single +12V rail – the 500W model will output 38A/456W, while the 600W will provide 48A/576W over the +12V rail.
The prices of the Win+ Power LT2 PSUs are unknown.
