Cooler Master has launched an update to a series of power supplies, thus giving birth to the second generation of GX-Series PSUs. The GX-II Series PSUs are aimed at budget builds, yet still deliver a more than adequate feature set.
All of the units will feature the standard 24-pin ATX connector as well as a 4+4-pin EPS connector. The 450 W unit features only one 6-pin PCIe power connector paired with two Molex connectors, one floppy power connector, and four SATA connectors, while the 550 W and 650 W units feature two 6+2-pin PCIe power connectors as well as six SATA power connectors, three Molex connectors and one floppy power connector. All the cables are sleeved.
The power supplies all feature a single 12 V rail design, as well as all the expected safety certifications, topped off with an 80 Plus Bronze certificate. They also feature an always-on USB header that continuously pushes power, regardless of which state the PC is in.
The units are expected to be priced from $79 to $109, though no official MSRPs have been released yet.
