The DeepCool Gamer Storm DQ650-M is another solid, high performing power supply by the company, in partnership with OEM Channel Well Technology. The build quality is high all round and it is good to see the adoption of high grade Japanese parts from leading companies such as Nichicon, Rubycon and Chemi-Con.
The external design of the DQ650-M is appealing. The adoption of a simple colour scheme means it will suit any colour schemed build and it also manages to maintain low noise levels through the power demand, ensuring those with sensitive ears will not find daily operation intrusive.
Technically the unit delivers the goods. Ripple suppression throughout the load range is excellent and load regulation falls well within expected parameters for safe operation.
The modular cable quality is excellent and the cables are long enough to suit a variety of system builds.
The big concern for me right now is the availability. I am still waiting to hear back from Deepcool to get a working UK store link. The unit was available on Amazon UK, but right now it seems out of stock. The higher wattage DQ850-M 850W is available from Amazon right now for £109.99 HERE, and the DQ650-M should be available at less than £90 shortly.
- Efficient design.
- Good ripple suppression.
- High build quality
- FDB fan gives silent operation.
- Fully Modular.
- 10 year warranty
- A lot of competition in the UK at similar price points from brands such as Seasonic and Corsair.
Kitguru says: This is a good looking, solid performing unit from Deepcool. Technically it is a sound design in partnership with CWT, but the biggest issue is actually finding it on sale anywhere.
