Many of our readers may be unfamiliar with the Xigmatek brand. Xigmatek is a relatively new company that began by offering excellent thermal management products to enthusiasts. Xigmatek was launched as a branch of parent company 'Micro Technology' in 2005 and they quickly expanded to offer more solutions for the DIY market such as computer cases and power supplies. Xigmatek's company philosophy is simple; ICE. This stands for Impressive, Creative, and Essential.
The unit that we have on the test bench today is the Xigmatek NRP-MC1002 power supply. It is the latest in their NRP series of PSU's. NRP stands for No Rules Power. Sometimes having no rules can be a good thing, but other times it's best to abide by them. In this case it would be the ATX V2.3 standards.
