Did full power at 50°C ambient.
Very good ripple/noise suppression.
Tight voltage regulation at 12V.
No MOV in the transient filtering stage.
Loose voltage regulation at 3.3V.
3.3V failed in 2nd part of Advanced Transient Response tests.
2x 6pin and 2x 62 pin.
Support for only one EPS connector.
Sometimes difficult to connect the 4 pin Molex plugs.

With the type of system that I tested, the sweet spot for power supplies is around the 750-800W mark. Completely overclocked while running in Crossfire, I was able to push my draw at the Kill-A Watt just over 750W (I peaked at 761W). This required the...-

Price Per the Watt: Power Supply NZXT HALE90 750W at $144.99 = $0.19/Watt (06-2011) The NZXT HALE90 750W power supply produced good quality DC rails with very little AC ripple/noise. The efficiency wasn't quite up the level required by the 80...-

I like the HALE Series of Power Supplies coming from NZXT I am not going to lie they look awesome in any build and the attention to detail is very impressive. The Amperage is very impressive and the performance is solid and stable. I would be content...-

Although it gave me a hard time while photo shooting, I liked the white paint job of the HALE90 unit. However I think that if NZXT had chosen a blue fan instead of the white one, looks would be even better, since this combination would break the white...88

This is a solidly build power supply. It's made from quality parts and does what it was designed for--providing a stable source of power at a reasonable price point. 62A on a single 12 volt rail will provide lots of current for hungry video cards...90

The Hale90 has been in the test systems for a few weeks now, and I’ve got to say I’m pretty happy with it. It certainly is more power efficient than the Thermaltake EVO_Blue 550W from the old benchmark system. The white casing at first...-

High build quality, fantastic efficiency and low noise levels make for a heady, tempting combination. The colour is sure to split opinion...90

Okay, here we go: Last in-house article of the year. Just when you thought you just got used to writing '2010', it is time to update our brain calendar and practice writing '2011' starting... well, tomorrow. For those who were dreaming...-

The NZXT HALE90 750W is the first NZXT power supply we have reviewed and it certainly made a very good first impression. With its very good build quality being accented by a unique, striking, bold, and well done cosmetic treatment the HALE90 750W set...-

The NZXT Hale90 continues from where the PP and the Precise series left off. Like the models before it the Hale90 is a proud owner of an 80Plus certification. While the older models only were able to obtain an 80Plus Bronze, Hale90 owns gold, meaning...-
