Power supply units are the unsung heroes of computer builds. They aren’t sexy, and they don’t really add to performance, but make no mistake — having a quality PSU maters. A low-quality power supply can lead to system instability, and even worse, fires. Yeah, it is never worth it to choose a PSU from an unknown manufacturer.
With all of that said, today, respected-maker ADATA unveils what looks to be a very nice power supply unit under its popular XPG (XTREME PERFORMANCE GEAR) gaming brand. Called “CYBERCORE,” this PSU is offered in two wattage options — 1,000W and 1,300W. It is also modular, meaning the wires are removable, which is great for cable management.

“XPG CYBERCORE is the latest XPG and Nidec collaboration. It is equipped with an XPG VENTO PRO 120 PWM fan powered by Nidec for unmatched cooling efficiency. The Nidec fans feature a curved design that offers maximum effectiveness. The fans begin spinning with a zero RPM low-load mode until around 30 percent power load to initiate the fan spin. The design has two main benefits — prolonged fan life expectancy and most importantly it enables a compact form factor at only 160 mm length, one of the smallest in the Platinum category,” says ADATA.

The company adds, “XPG CYBERCORE utilizes high-quality Japanese capacitors rated for 105°C and an advanced Interleaved PFC (Power Factor Correction) that regulates and stabilizes voltage, distributing power at optimal efficiency. Exploring the digital side of power, XPG added a Digital PMIC (Power Management IC) to help increase performance management and stability.”
