  • Gigabyte XP1200M 80Plus Platinum Modular Power Supply Review



    When building up a gaming or enthusiast system your time and money is often concentrated on making sure you get the most powerful video card or the best processor you can afford.  This tendency is natural since those are the things we perceive to dictate overall performance.  The thing people forget is that performance cannot be realized unless you have enough power to drive everything, which means you need a quality PSU.

    In this review we will be looking at the Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming  XP1200M 1200W PSU.  This is an 80+ Platinum certified PSU with a power efficiency of 92% under a typical load.  Xtreme Gaming may describe the PSU however the 1200W power delivery and orange 140mm cooling fan are really what you should be paying attention to.
