Cougar GX-S 500 Watt Power Supply Review

 

Introduction

When we start thinking about building a new rig one of the most often overlooked part of the planning is the power supply. For some reason many think that if you but just any PSU with enough advertised power you are fine. That is far from the truth. The power supply is one if not the most important part of the build. Quality is a huge plus as well as must.

One company that is trying to build a rep for producing such a power supply is Cougar. We have seen a few of their cases on the pages of Pro-Clockers but really how well do their power supplies perform? We are going to take a look at one and see what type of numbers it put up on our little bench.

Cougar‘s take on the GX-S

Unique design such as High-vortex-airflow with turbine blade & frame can provide optimum cooling efficiency leads to a reduction of the fan speed and extremely quiet running. Advanced HDB (Hydro-Dynamic Bearing) provide super silence performance and best lifespan. Temperature-controlled design adapts its rotating speed to the PSU temperature. Even on its highest rotating level the fan is still quiet enough to be barely noticeable.
