Scythe Stronger PSU lineup unveiled

Posted on Tuesday, May 04 2010 @ 22:09:22 CEST by

Scythe announced Stronger, a pretty weird name for a new power supply series. You can get these units with or without modular cabling, in 500W, 600W or 700W models. The Stronger series is cooled by Scythe's Slip Stream 140 fan, and the PSU has an automated fan controller that can control two additional fans. The Stronger series has 80Plus certification, you can check out the test reports over here.
Japanese cooling specialist Scythe Co. Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan) presents under the name of "Stronger" its new power supply series. These power supplies are now available with an output of 500 W, 600 W and 700 W both as a plug-in version with cable management for comfort, as well as a standard version with sleeved mesh cables.

The Stronger power supplies meet the 80Plus certification (at 20/50/100% load) and are based on an updated version of the proven technology that was already used in the Kamariki 4 series. In design terms, the Stronger series is also admirable. Simple yet stylish, matt black finish fits perfectly into the overall visual image of most PC cases. The 45 to 55 cm long cable strands of the plug-in, as well as the standard version are completely encased in durable, black mesh tube.

For cooling, a controlled 140 mm fan from the proven Scythe Slip Stream series is used. In addition, users have the option to connect two case fans directly to the power supply. These fans are then individually controlled by an integrated, intelligent fan controller according to the load and the temperature of the PSU. At the back of the power supply, a special honeycomb structure ensures optimum air flow. Furthermore, three-year warranty is granted by Scythe on the new Stronger series.

Scythe Stronger power supply series is now available for the following MSRP:
Stronger 500 W Plug-in: 58,40 EUR (excluding VAT) / US$ 75.00 (excluding TAX)
