A new power supply from Bitfenix recently graced our labs – the Formula Gold 750W. This is an 80 Plus Gold, non modular unit targeting the mass enthusiast audience. Bitfenix say they are using high grade components inside to deliver good electrical performance with low acoustic noise. They are releasing four models in this range – 450W, 550W, 650W and 750W. We look at the highest power model in the range today.
Bitfenix have been working closely with CWT in the design of these particular units and the end product involves a custom PCB design specifically for Bitfenix. The platform is LLC/DC-DC but it is different to the Whisper M series – which is modular.
Bitfenix are attempting to achieve a competitive price point for this power supply and we have heard from Overclockers UK that pricing will be set at £82.99 inc vat. Based on today’s pricing that is about £17 less than Bitfenix own Whisper M Series 750W (also 80 Plus Gold) available here at £99.95 inc vat.
