Excerpt: Nowadays, being “green” is the in thing. Many people are trying to find ways to save energy and save the planet, and there are a number of companies who are adopting those principles in designing their products. Coolmax, a maker of a wide range of cooling and other computer products, has released a new green power supply, the Coolmax CUG-950B 950W PSU. Does being green come with a sacrifice in performance? Read on to find out.
Excerpt: A few weeks ago, we took a look at Coolmax’s 950W PSU and were impressed by the quality and stable voltages. Coolmax also offers a 750W PSU, the Coolmax RM-750B 750W PSU, which they claim has a high level of performance with a lower price point. Will the reduced power prove to be too much of a sacrifice? Let’s find out as we take a closer look at this power supply.
Excerpt: Once upon a time, in my early days of reviewing, I took a look at the Coolmax CUG-700B, which failed to impress me very much and turned out to be a bit of a dud. Now, I'm looking at the big brother of that unit, the 950W CUG-950B to see if it performs any better. Trust me, you're going to want to see how this one did.
Summary: Performance was excellent, it handled what was by no means a modest system build and hardly even flinched on the voltage rails. This makes me feel very confident in recommending this PSU for any monster system build you may be concocting.
The unit was also very aesthetically pleasing as well. From its durable polished paint finish, color coded power connections and nylon sleeved modular power cables.
