NZXT's Hale82 850 watt power supply turned out to be quite a fantastic unit... as long as I kept it cool. It handed in respectable voltage regulation numbers, blasted through Bronze efficiency with ease, and had some of the best looking scope shots...

They're a bit large to be stocking stuffers, but two products released this week by component maker NZXT are sure to light up many a holiday season. The first is the NZXT HALE82 series of PC power supplies, so named for their minimum, 82 percent...

The new NZXT HALE82 850 W is a very good unit, with efficiency between 82% and 86.5%, voltages closer to their nominal values than necessary (three percent voltage regulation, except the +3.3 V output at full load), and extremely low noise and ripple...
