CoolMax CUG-600B Green Power 600W Power Supply
September 06, 2006

Conclusion:

The CoolMax CUG-600B Green Power 600W Power Supply provides stable voltages and additional features that you would expect from a reliable manufacturer.

This device is quiet, so you won't hear it over other fans buzzing in your computer's tower. It performs well, with voltages fluctuating less than 1% between idle and load. This product is ready for some of the more powerful gaming systems with support for SLI and Cross-Fire. Finally, the modular design reduces case clutter and generally improves the look of your case.


A search of PriceGrabber shows only a pair of stores carrying this power supply, with the least expensive being Compuvest at about $120 plus shipping. But, if you look closely at the listing at Directron, you see there is a $30 rebate available, which brings their final price down to $99. This same rebate is available at Newegg, where the final price is even more attractive at $89.99.

For its stable voltages and modular features the CoolMax CUG-600B Green Power 600W Power Supply earns the Bigbruin.com "Recommended" award.


Pros:

Quiet, you won't hear it over case or CPU fans
Little fluctuation in voltages from idle to full load
SLI and Cross-Fire capability
Active PFC and decent efficiency
Three +12V rails
Modular design reduces case clutter

Cons:

Relatively low readings on 12V and 5V rails
Sticker showing placement of modular wires is upside down
Poor use of English in portions of the user manual
