X-SPICE CROON 750WATT POWER SUPPLY INTRODUCTION
The high-end power supply market has been booming in recent years. Whilst the power requirements of CPUs and motherboards has been on the decline the advent of SLI and high power graphics hardware as well as the plethora of gadgets available today has forced manufacturers to provide more and more powerful power supplies to meet the need. Less than five years ago I would have considered a 400W power supply more than adequate for even the most feature packed system. Today however 400W just won't cut it in a gaming/enthusiast system.
Today we will be taking an early look at X-Spice's Croon BF700 750W PSU. To my knowledge this PSU is not yet available on the commercial market at the time of this review.
X-SPICE CORPORATE PROFILE
At the time of this review the X Spice website is under construction thus I am unable to give a company profile for this review. However, in future reviews of their products I am sure this information will become available. For this review I will quote the company information posted on their European distributor's website.
The friendly brand X-Spice is new in Europe. Xen Micro GmbH has exclusive distribution rights for the commercialization and brand marketing for all European countries. X-Spice is oriented towards market demand in its product politics. The Chinese manufacturer works closely with its partners, so that European engineers took part in the development of power packs. We are happy to work with the manufacturer and we are convinced that the good offer and the excellent quality will lead to a good placement of these products on the market.
