80+ Gold Enthusiast Modular PSU
NZXT introduces the 80+ gold certified HALE90 series built from the ground up specifically customized for gamers and enthusiasts and offers incredibly efficient operation that will meet the needs of even the most power hungry enthusiasts.







Althought the NZXT HALE90 Series PSU claims that it can handle 750W of power, NZXT is adamant that this is continuous load - not merely peak load like many other companies post.  If you do the math on this PSU you'll see that the 3.3v and 5v lines actually total 189.2W - not the mere 120W that they are rated.  Also the +12v line is very large at 62A which totals 744W alone - almost the rated wattage of the entire PSU.  The -12v and +5Vsb ratings are bang on.  If you add all of these up, you get 954.2W - so the 750W rating is pretty generous.
