After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

Thermaltake Evo Blue 650Watt Power Supply Review

Introduction


A power supply is often the last item considered when building a new computer, but it is definitely one of the most important and when looking for a new PSU it is hard for most people to know what they need. A normal enthusiast or gamer PC is fine with 500 watts for single video card setups and 650 watts for dual card configurations.  When additional accessories and overclocking are added to the mix you can expect these estimates to rise considerably. While it may be nice to have the overhead afforded by buying a 1KW PSU there is often no need for the larger and more expensive power supplies.

In this review we will be looking into the Thermaltake Evo Blue 650 watt Power Supply. The Evo Blue comes with modular cabling, customizable lights, and is backed by a five year warranty. 

What more do you need to know?
Plenty, keep reading while we take a look at the newest in the Thermaltake PSU line-up.
The exterior of the PSU features a bold design with bow-tie inspired cutouts and mesh inserts.  These large mesh panels have several purposes including air circulation, basic decoration, fill with light when the fan LEDs are activated.

Overall the look is very nice, not too flashy yet far from plain.

Be sure to check out the Thermaltake website for a complete list of tech specs and features, they even have a fancy animation showing the various lighting effects.
