COUGAR, leading PC case and power supply brand has let loose the latest power supply unit, an update to the GX series, titled the GX V3. These new high-end series of power supplies specifically target demanding gamers and the rugged black coating in combination with the gold vent grill add to the overall robust and aggressive appearance of a computer and at a size of 160mm down from 180mm in length the GX V3 will significantly reduce the space taken up in the system. In fact, for almost all 1000 plus watt models on the market, the GX V3 will be the smallest of compact 1050W products, a major technological breakthrough.
The COUGAR GX V3 PSUs are fully compliant with the 80-PLUS® Gold efficiency requirement, featuring a peak efficiency of up to 93%. These high-end PSUs are designed for enthusiast gamers who desire extremely efficient and powerful gaming products. The GX series is equipped with and ultra quiet fan that provides optimum cooling efficiency. The advanced modular cable management system is further improved with new flat cables that simplify installation and maximize airflow.
Many people and organizations have the computers running 24/7 whether it is for remote access or cloud-computing requirements. COUGAR has continued to address the growing need for super-efficient power supplies with the ECO-friendly power supply designs with 3 variations of the GX V3 at 600, 800 and 1050 watts.
The COUGAR GX V3 PSU was designed from the ground up to achieve high efficiency in its power supply management. With RST (Rapid Switch Technology) and DC to DC technology, which provides the highest efficiency and the most stable performance, along with perfect regulation (Regulation <3%). That, along with the CLC filter design which efficiently suppresses Ripple/Noise to less than 1%, shows how the GX V3 has been improved to increase electric efficiency even further over previous generations.
The components inside a power supply also help to distinguish between average PSUs and high-end models. To that end the GX V3 uses 105°C rated Japanese capacitors. These provide uncompromised performance and reliability, delivering 4 times the lifespan of conventional 85°C rated capacitors. To keep all these components cool the GX V3 has an ultra quiet temperature controlled 140mm fan. The 140mm double ball bearing fan delivers optimum air flow with an extremely low noise level plus the fan speed is automatically governed based on the temperature.
It is therefore no wonder that the GX V3 series also fits in with the latest Eco-Friendly EuP regulation, ErP Lot6 2013. The energy consumption is lower than 0.3W when the PC is in standby mode, which can save quite a bit of energy and money and of course it supports the ENERGY STAR 5.0 rating.
The advanced modular cable management system is further improved by utilizing new flat cables that simplify installation as well as reduce air friction in order to maximize airflow. This helps give gamers the cooling power they need, and the flexibility of easy upgrades the demand.
The MSRP of the three power level variants are: the at GX1050 $189, the GX800 at $149, and the GX600 at $109.
