    Default Cooler Master GX II 650W

    While the general trend has been higher energy consumption, there are many consumers that don't need a high end kilowatt power supply. There is a considerable market for mid-range units to power a single graphics card setup, somewhere around 600W to 650W of power. The Cooler Master GX II 650W is one such mid-range power supply, and while it's not a beast like one of Cooler Master's premium V-Series units, for examples, the GX II is 80PLUS Bronze certified and comes with an affordable price tag of $80. Seems like a very enticing budget-oriented unit, so let's take a closer look at this Cooler Master GX II 650W power supply and see how it fares.

    The 52 amp single +12V rail seems sufficiant.
    Good review Jake. Decent PSU, but there are some fantastic deals to be had at this time of year too.
