Sparkle Power's 250W 80 Plus SPI250EP seems a throwback to yesteryear. Is there any place in today's PC world for such a modest ATX12V power supply? Oh, most definitely.
The SPI250EP appears at first glance to be a throwback to computer technology nearly a decade ago. What's a measly 250W-rated, generic-looking ATX12V power supply doing in a website for PC enthusiasts in 2008? Look more closely and you'll see the number "80" that's part of the 80 Plus logo, which identifies the product as a modern power supply >80% efficient at all loads from 20% of rated power all the way to full power.
