Lately there is a massive introduction of Power Supplies in the market, most of them featuring massive watt outputs from 850W to 1500W and not surprisingly since computers require more power to run each day that goes by, especially the ones used by gamers or enthusiasts. I have many times in the past mentioned the importance of having a good power supply under the hood that is able to provide stable and clean power to your various system components than buying a cheap solution that is most likely to cause a variety of problems. That is why i have made a promise to myself and to many readers to always make reviews of high quality power supplies that will last. Today for the first time on my test table i have a unit made by an unknown company to most, but yet very known and respected to all those who are into things, Seventeam Electronics.
Seventeam was founded in 1986 and is based in Taipei, Taiwan. Ever since their insertion to the market they have produced quality solutions and have grown to a point when they currently have instant sale and logistics network in major countries around the world. With almost 23 years of expertise Seventeam has become one of the leading power supply manufacturing companies in the world. Their power supplies feature high performance, high watts and high stability while at the same time are quiet and energy smart. Their power supply line of products includes power supply for PC and for customized units for IPC (for industrial and server uses). Their solutions are currently used by various global leading partners in system integration. The first unit by Seventeam is the V-Force ST-850Z-AF Power Supply.
The V-Force ST-850Z-AF is a PSU oriented mostly towards gamers since not only is it a modular power supply that uses Japanese made capacitors but it also has an 80Plus Bronze efficiency. This being the very first time i am testing a product from Seventeam i am faced with something that i have no idea how it will perform and whether it will turn up to be really good or not. On a first glance i must say that the overall feeling when touching or even upon just seeing the device is positive, however we are here to dig deeper and see how it will perform.
