NZXT announces its HALE90 PSU line

Written by Slobodan Simic

The 80+ Gold certification

NZXT has announced a new line of modular power supplies that will feature an 80+ Gold certification and a single +12V rail, the HALE90 series.

The HALE90 series will be available as a 550W, 650W, 750W, 850W and 1000W model and are compliant with ATX 12V v2.2 and EPS 12V standards. The entire series features an 80+ Gold certification, have a single +12V rail and feature a 140mm dual ball-bearing fan to keep it nice and cool.

Due to its single +12V rail design, the HALE90 series gives up to 83A on this rail for the 1000W model (45Amps on the 550W model) and, in addition to ten SATA peripheral connectors and nine Molex connectors, it has a total of three 6-pin and three 8-pin PCI-Express connectors.

In order to follow the green trend, the HALE90 series consumes under 1W in off state and also features flat cables for neater looks and better cable management.

The entire line is backed by five years of warranty and should be available pretty soon with a price tag ranging from US $119.99 for the 550W version to US $209.99 for the 1000W model.

I've only ever worked with their cases, but, if the quality of their PSUs is anything like their cases, I won't touch one. As a matter of fact, I have a healing cut right now from a crappy NZXT case.

Who knows though, maybe they will contract with a good company to build them as Corsair did and they'll be a hit. Or not.

Quoting nECrO:

Half of that staff comes from SeaSonic
(a high quality Brand btw.) but it depends if the Designer has ordered japanese solid capacitors , 3 cent elektrolyt shit from china or even without.
p.S. Gold Certifikat is 90%+ and not 80%

I can agree with Necro , NZXT is an intermediate case desinger , relatively middle priced but it's really crappy once you realize it at home , Coolermaster Cosmos S is one of the best desings and looks and feature wise , but it's old , the cosmos S needs another reload , things like adjustable fans and LEDs and other stuff newer cases have , it's perfect for users too , it's EATX so you can work nicely inside , i bought the NZXT Lexa case and it looked great on the picture now it's a bit of a dissapoint , the FEET the case is standing are weirdly attached so they bend and it's PLASTIC feet , they always bend a bit and produce scratching/cracking noise (though they aren't breaking yet)
Other than thermometer LED on the front , it doesn't have any more features than a standard case.

I know Seasonic is a major OEM. I doubt that they make half of the rebranded PSUs but they do make a lot. And as you have stated, it's all down to the specs the purchasing company gives them. My concern was given NZXT's track record with cases, I had my doubts as to whether they would do it right.

With cases it's a question of taste. Some folks like flashy designs over build quality. But PSU's are a different matter. A crappy PSU affects stability and use, wastes power and in some cases, slowly kills itself and everything in your box. A good PSU pays for itself.
