    Default NZXT E850 Digital Monitoring PSU Review

    It’s Been a Long Time NZXT used to be a familiar name in the PSU world. Even though the company was, and still is known for cases, the Hale series stirred up some attention. That was quite a few years ago however, so seeing the new E850 come to market was a decent surprise. The unit has some strong bragging rights, with Seasonic as the OEM, and a new feature that feels quite unique to the industry. First, a quick word from NZXT, then we’ll move right over to the unit. Pursue passion We are a company of gamers creating the best products for gamers. Revel in that. Foster community Work among friends. Listen to and support our users. Both ensure our continued success. Demonstrate courage Go beyond what’s expected. Do not compromise or fear making mistakes. Be humble Confidence is vital, but there’s always more to know and achieve. Accept accountability What we think, say, and do must be in complete alignment. Own victory and defeat. Look further Great ideas come from anywhere, not just our industry. Expand where you seek inspiration.

    Josh,

    The CAM thing on this PSU is utterly the Bees Knees. I just glanced at the pretty pictures, but it wasn't clear to me if you could extract current draw information on things like the DIMM slots or by individual PCI-E slot...just how sophisticated is it?

    Not quite that sophisticated. It will separate the CPU and GPU rails. However, if you have Crossfire or SLI, then it's showing usage for all the GPUs total. It can show amperage used on the 3.3v and 5v rails, but that's going to include all the motherboard usage as well. It will also separate any components attached to the 12v peripherals rail. You could test an SSD's usage if you unplugged all other SATA/Molex peripherals. HWInfo might have something for RAM power consumption.

    Which in fact in itself is pretty awsome
