It has been a long time since we reviewed a Bitfenix power supply and at the time I walked away feeling less than impressed with the overall quality and performance of the unit. Today we analyse the relatively new BitFenix Whisper Series 850 watt supply, a pure modular unit with 80 Plus Gold Certification.
These units are supplied by OEM partner Channel Well Technology (CWT) – a company who have made many high grade power supplies for companies such as Corsair. This Whisper range of power supplies is offered in various capacities ranging from 450W to 850W. Overclockers UK stock them all, and you can see them over HERE.
Bitfenix also supply a reassuring 7 year warranty with this product range.
