The power needed by our system is converted by The Coolermaster’s power supply. The RS 850 EMBA has an efficiency of over 80%, and stays high even at low power levels.
In order for our system to achieve average performance, we used the ATI HD3850 graphics card from Gigabyte. It is very economical in standby mode.
Our testing system is equipped with a 320 GB hard drive from Western Digital and a SATA-ROM from Samsung.
