Scythe Announces New Line of Power Supplies

Posted: 03:14PM

Scythe has unveiled a new line of power supplies that are targeted at mainstream users. The PSUs will be part of a new series called Stronger and will come in a few varieties. Each unit measures in at 150 x 160 x 86mm and weighs 2.2 kilograms. All are 80 Plus certified and are also ATX 12V Version 2.3 and EPS 12V compliant. Each one features sleeved cables, Over Current / Voltage / Power / Temperature Protection, Short Circuit Protection, and Under Voltage Protection. They are available in 500 watt, 600W, and 700W varieties as well as modular and non-modular for each wattage. The Stronger series comes in a matte black finish and feature a 140mm Scythe Slip Stream fan to help cool it down. That is pretty much the largest fan you can fit into a power supply and still keep it in the ATX format.

Each power supply comes with a three year warranty and will be priced fairly well. The non-modular ones come in at $65 for the 500W, $75 for the 600W, and $98 for the 700W. For the modular variety, you are looking at $75 for the 500W, $97 for the 600W, and $108 for the 700W. No word on availability was announced at this time, but expect them to show up at retailers and online stores before long.

I dunno about this. I trust Scythe fans because they are awesome. But I don't know how much I would trust one of their power supplies. That's the problem with lesser-known companies getting into this type of business.

It doesn't matter who has the name on the PSU, it matters which company makes it. If they go with Seasonic or some other good OEM, then I think Scythe has a winner.
