Mushkin HP-580AP PSU
The power supply unit is the single most important part of any computer. Regardless of the system there is a given rule: whether it be a simple workstation with integrated components or an advanced gaming system with every fresh technology available, everything requires power to operate. As anyone who has suffered the failure of a low-end power supply will tell you: not all power supply units (PSU’s) are created equal. While every journalist has their own system for reviewing a power supply, my review will take a very detailed look at the Mushkin HP-580AP PSU at every angle and submit the unit to battery of torture tests in order to ensure it will provide any computer system with stable power.
The next generation of power supplies has arrived with Mushkin's Enhanced series featuring RailFusion. The four 12V rails allow the PSU to distribute power more evenly, resulting in a more stable system. Available with 580 Watts, your power needs are met for even the most cutting edge components. Mushkins HP-580AP is designed to handle dual processors, dual graphics cards, and just about anything else you can throw at it - perfectly. Additionally, Mushkin's "Enhanced Thermal & Acoustic Design" will automatically vary the PSU fan speed depending on the system load and temperature, allowing for the most stable and quiet computing environment no matter what programs are running.
