COOLER MASTER IGREEN 430 WATT INTRODUCTION
There are two simple facts in life: One, you will always need to upgrade your compter to the latest and greatest technology. Two, the later and greater the tech, the more power you will need to run it. While the lowly PSU is usually forgotten (or at least put on the bottom of the list), the savvy system builder knows he needs a quality PSU to run that hardcore gaming rig.
However, a larger PSU draws more power from the wall, raising your electric bill. CoolerMaster is looking to ease that pain with their upcoming line of power supplies, billed the iGreen series. Boasting capacities of 430, 500, and 600 watts, these units use “Intelligent Circuit Configuration”, and forward thinking “Double Forward Switching Circuit” to achieve greater efficiency. What this means to you is more power, at less cost.
Today, I'm taking my voltmeter to the 430 watt model. Let's fire ‘er up, and see what happens.
