NZXT Intros HALE82 V2 Fully-Modular PSUs

NZXT has announced a new lineup of power supplies, the HALE82 V2 series. The power supplies are aimed to bringing high-performance power supplies with a broad feature set without having to break the bank to get one. As such, the power supplies are fully modular, the units are 80+ Bronze certified, and they come in a rather different white and black design. They are also built using a single powerful 12 V rail.

At first the power supplies will only come out in two versions, a 700 W unit and a 550 W unit. Both of the units are said to be compatible with Intel's Haswell processors, so no worries there. They come with a 135 mm silent fan, as well as all the protective features and safety approvals that we've come to expect from any modern-day power supply.

The units are rated at an MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) of 50,000+ hours, carry a warranty of three years, and will cost €79.99 and €99.99 for the 550 W unit and the 700 W unit, respectively. There was no word on U.S. pricing or availability.

  • 80 Plus Bronze Sirtec made units. Nothing to see here. NZXT does pretty well with their Super Flower and Seasonic made units. Not really exciting to see them go with Sirtec on this line.

  • What is with this "Haswell" compatible nonsense? I may just be out-of-touch, but I know Haswell is super efficient but can't pretty much any recent PSU work fine w/ Haswell?

    MOST PSUs out there should be fine with Haswell but unfortunately, some aren't. Enough of them to raise doubts and make Haswell certification a marketable gimmick.

    This is very similar to why GPU manufacturers recommend ~500W PSU for 100-200W setups: many poorly engineered/constructed PSUs out there fail under conditions where they shouldn't.
