There seems to be a trend these days with PC component manufacturers: They're ALL entering the power supply business.
|High-grade PC chassis manufacturer Lian Li has now announced the Maxima Force series of gaming systems-targeting power supply units. The three PSU models unveiled today offer 470, 650 and 750W of continuous power, are compliant with the ATX 12V V2.3 & EPS 12V standards and feature an efficiency of over 80% which has secured them the 80 Plus certification.
Coming with an always secsi black coating, the new PSUs can deliver up to 100W more than their declared power output for one hour, make use of Japanese capacitor components and are cooled off by 120mm ball-bearing fans. The 470W model features two 12V rails (18A each), the 650W one has three (19A) while the 750W unit can brag with having four 12V rails (18A). The non-modular PSUs also have sleeved cables and a MTBF (mean time before failure) of over 100,000 hours.
Lian Li's Maxima Force should already be shipping and reaching the stores at VAT-less prices of around $104 (470W), $144 (650W) and $177 (750W).
