What kind of PSU features you hope to see ?

Recommended Posts

How about the use of ALL Solid Capacitors inside the PSU? Is this feasible? Why are Silverstone the only ones (to my knowledge) that are doing this with their higher-end PASSIVE "Nightjar" range? Wouldn't this increase the longevity of the PSU, as well as the efficiency? Coolermaster should definitely aim to get an "80Plus Gold" award with their PSUs - more efficiency is always good. :)

BTW loving the Real Power M1000 atm - just wished (with Bad Axe 2) that it had a power switch, X48-DS5 can handle on/off perfectly though, so I now have no issues with it. :)

Otherwise above suggestions are excellent, especially the addition of 2min cooldown with fan(s) for psu after shutdown - great feature that Enermax has on their units.

-Single 12V rail with at least 50A

-Power consumption monitor [ Nice idea, like you said for the 450 ]

-High quality Copper + Aluminum heatspreaders / heatsinks

-130mm+ fans

-Modular

-2 Large Capacitors [ One for the 12V, one for the 5+3V ]

-80%+ effeciency

-And I like the previously stated fan running after shut down.

-Fan controlling software [AKA 4 pin fan controlling]

-Black color + reflective

-Japanese made capacitors

-Many wattage options [ 400/550/700/850/1000 ]

-Ability to stay 100W over the stated wattage for at least 1 minute

-3-5 year warranty that covers parts damaged due to a faulty power supply.

I would love that :)

For an 850w PSU

Following cables always hardwired:

- Main 20+4 Pin motherboard power connector

- 1 4+4-Pin ATX12V/EPS12V connector

- or -

1 8-Pin EPS12V connector

1 4-Pin ATX12V P4 connector

- 2 PCI-Express 6+2 Pin connectors

- 1 SATA cable w/ 2 connectors

- 4 Molex connectors

additional modular cables:

- 2 SATA cables w/ 2-3 connectors

- 2 PCI-Express 6 Pin connectors

- 4 Molex connectors + 1 floppy

- On/Off switch

- Monitoring/Power Management Software

- No cosmetic LEDs, only diagnostic

- Heat sinks Integral w/ casing

- Vibration dampening

- flat cable sleeving (like SATA data cables)

I don't even know if this is a feasible request, but with alternative cooling becoming more and more popular, it would be great to have a standard ATX type PSU that could handle upwards of 45-50 amps on the +12v rail. Most decent peltier coolers require around 24v or more and current power supplies do not have enough power to handle this load plus that of the system. A power supply with this much amperage on the 12v rail would take away the necessity of having a separate external power supply for the cooling system.

How bout 75-90 amps per single rail?

Single Rail

Flat cables that lay down nice behind the back panel.(modular not necessary)

Black Connectors

Protective caps included for the Molex.(also black)

Voltage Regulators instead of magnetic amplifiers

MADE IN USA. :cheers:

90+ efficency

modular only, too many cables = less circulation if not controlled

single rail, high amps for gpu's

thats all i can think of lol

:

I avoid modular PSU , modular PSU are less efficient due to the multiple extra connectors (prone to damage) , the multiple extra connectors increase the size of the PSU case , there is plenty of room at the back of the mobo tray to hide the cables therefore modular PSU not necessary ,professionals dont use modular PSU

I have a suggestion ,I think is better to increase the size of the holes in the exhaust grill of the PSU , in this way the temperatures inside the PSU decrease

Ah, I guess that's why most COOLER MASTER PSU's are not modular. Non modular power supplies hurt those with smaller cases though, thankfully I plan on upgrading to either a CM Stacker 830 NVIDIA edition or COSMOS S. My Real Power Pro 1000W is a very nice PSU, I expect it to run fine when I add two more video cards to my system (both will be 55nm GTX 260). The only issue I have with it is the lack of a power switch. Does a single +12v rail have any benefits compared to CM's current multiple rail design? My PSU has 108A total on the +12v rails, most PSU's in the same price range that feature a single +12v rail usually have less.

1) Fully Sleeved

2) Fully Modular

3) leads with only single molex connectors (for video cards)

4) Leads with only one floppy connectors

5) Reostat to control fan

:) agree
