  1. Νομίζω ότι με τις ενεργειακές απαιτήσεις των σύγχρονων υποσυστημάτων , η κατηγορία τροφοδοτικών 800-900watt θα αποτελέσει την κατηγορία με την μεγαλύτερη ζήτηση !!

    –Προσωπικά στα τροφοδοτικά ύστερα από πληθώρα δοκιμών και εναλλαγών ετών ,πλέον αποφάσισα να ακολουθήσω το πιο ασφαλές μονοπάτι , οπότε το Corsair RMx 850 θεωρώ πως ήταν ένας σχετικός “μονόδρομος” .

    1. To RM850x όντως είναι από τις καλύτερες επιλογές σήμερα (και για μελλοντικές καταστάσεις πιθανών), ειδικά το μοντέλο 2021 με τον ML ανεμιστήρα.
      BTW πρώτο σχόλιο στο νέο μας site 🙂

  2. κόσμημα το Seasonic Prime TX-750, έχω RM750x (2018) και σκέφτομαι για ανανέωση!

    1. Στη θέση σου δε θα το άλλαζα το RMx, γιατί δεν πρόκειται να δεις τρελή διαφορά.

  3. Είμαι έκπληκτος για την ποιότητα και την απόδοση των τροφοδοτικών της Coolermaster. Πίστευα ότι θα ταν κατώτερα μπροστά σε Corsair, Seasonic και Evga. Όμως απεδείχθει οτι οχι μονο κατώτερη δεν είναι, αλλά ισάξια τους.

    Καλορίζικο το νεο site!
