Introduction

Last year NZXT debuted their HALE90 series of power supplies, produced by OEM SuperFlower and rated at 80Plus Gold standard for efficiency. In our own testing, the HALE90 surpassed every other Gold rated power supply to deliver the highest efficiency while still coming in at a rock bottom price, compared to other PSUs in its class. I'm happy to report that our review HALE90 power supply is still performing up to par now after more than a year of use in one of our test systems.


Not to take anything away from the HALE90 then, but NZXT has traditionally been better known for their offerings in the low to middle end market where the bulk of consumers shop for their gear, and the HALE90 is maybe just a tad out of that price range. Not surprisingly then, NZXT has released a new HALE82 line of power supplies, in 650W, 750W and 850W ratings, that come in at a 20%-30% savings over their HALE90 counterparts. The HALE82 features a similar design, with semi-modular construction, single +12V rail and 80Plus Bronze certification.

Join us as we take a closer look at the NZXT HALE82 650W power supply.
