POWER UP

The MWE White offers a simple, reliable way to power your system safely and efficiently at a low cost. The 80 PLUS White efficiency rating, DC-to-DC + LLC circuit design, single +12V rail, active PFC, and temperature sensitive HDB fan offer a power supply unit that stays true to its original purpose. This PSU will handle all your core computing needs with none of the hassles or challenges of additional specialty features, software synchronization, or other bells and whistles. Just plug it into your system and get to work. For a great core computing experience, you can’t go wrong with the MWE White.

80 PLUS STANDARD CERTIFIED

It’s important to understand what efficiency is and what the ratings actually mean. The efficiency rating indicates how much power is retained and/or lost when transferring it from the wall to your components. It does not indicate the overall quality of the PSU. A PSU doesn’t need an 80 PLUS Gold rating to be safe and reliable. And a PSU with an 80 PLUS Gold rating isn’t necessarily either of those things. The MWE White guarantees a typical efficiency of 80% while being both safe and reliable.

         

120MM HDB FAN

The constant struggle between cooling and noise is as old as the consumer PC industry itself. Keeping your components cool without having to hear about it while you work is still one of the greatest challenges for all fan based cooling technologies. The MWE White’s solution to this problem is a thermally sensitive 120mm HDB fan. It spins based on the system’s temperature, constantly adjusting to keep your PSU running smoothly and safely with the minimum amount of noise required.

         

DC-TO-DC CIRCUIT DESIGN

Power comes in multiple voltage levels. The wall delivers power in one voltage level but your components each need a specific voltage to operate properly. The process of converting raw power from the wall to the multiple voltage levels your components need requires special components to complete this process quickly, efficiently, and safely. The MWE White’s DC-to-DC + LLC technology was painstakingly crafted to accomplish this goal. The Dual Forward circuit layout has been designed to convert 12V power to 3V and 5V levels with minimal ripple noise, 80 PLUS efficiency, and reduced risk to your connected components. 

        

SINGLE +12V RAIL

Getting power from the wall to the PSU and then to your components is a tricky situation. The power comes in one voltage level, but your components need a different one. That power has to first be transferred to/through a converter in order to make it safe for your parts to use without overloading. The lines/rails used to initially move power from the wall to the converter need to be reliable and consistent to ensure your system’s overall performance. That’s why the MWE White only uses one +12V rail for this process. This way all the components in your system are constantly fed the same power from the same source in order to guarantee consistency between all connections.

SILENT MODE

The MWE White platform has a built in silent mode for low wattage operation. While your system is in standby mode or running at loads lower than 50W, the fan will not spin. This ensures complete silence during casual operation. Once your system passes the 50W load threshold, the 120mm HDB fan will activate automatically and cool the unit appropriately based on system use and needs.

       

FLAT BLACK CABLES

For many PC Builders with aesthetics in mind, cabling can be on of the most troublesome parts of assembling a PC. Cables can be confusing, too short or too long, and they almost never look good. The MWE White uses flat and flexible black cables to help deal with these problems. These cables are more discrete and flexible, making them easier to implement into your system while taking up less space. This is especially useful for smaller cases and preserving airflow.

Power Supply Units [PSUs] are often overlooked during a PC build despite its crucial part in determining the reliability of the entire system. All your PC components depend on PSU for power. Even if you’re on a tight budget, you don’t want to make any compromises when it comes to the power supply. We’re here to discuss factors you need to consider before purchasing the PSU for your rig.
 

Factors need to be considered before purchasing a PSU -


Wattage Requirement: There is no point in buying a PSU with way more potential power than you’ll ever use. A PSU calculator web page or software can be handy in finding a rough estimation about the wattage requirement of your build. However, it is not recommended purchasing a PSU just above your system's power needs. A PSU delivers maximum efficiency with 40 to 60 percent load. Besides, the performance of a PSU declines with time. So, you better opt for a PSU capable of taking you through your next few upgrades for multiple years.
 

Physical Dimensions of the PC Case: You must buy a PSU that fits inside your PC case. Higher-wattage PSUs tend to be a bit longer [compared to typical 5.5 inch PSUs] to house the additional power components they need. This may create issues with cable routing or even with placing other internal components inside the case. So, it is a must to go for a PSU compatible with your PC case.
 

Type and Number of Connectors: Different PSUs come with different types of power connectors, including 20/24-pin power, 4-pin ATX12V, 4-pin Molex, floppy, SATA, 6-pin PCI-Express graphics and 8-pin PCI-Express graphics. You must get a power supply with connectors your PC components required. If you don’t find required connectors in a PSU within your budget, check what cable adaptors the PSU includes to extenuate the problem.
 

Modular or Non-Modular: If you have limited space in your case, it’s worth paying extra for a modular power supply. A modular PSU let you plug in the power cables you need and leave the extra ones. This facility will help reducing cable clutter that can hinder airflow and heat up the atmosphere inside the case.
 

Power Efficiency: PSUs convert voltages from wall outlets to lower levels as required by the PC. The power supply wastes some power as heat during the conversion. A PSU with higher efficiency means it can power the PC with minimum loss of electricity. Anything 80% and above is good. With a more efficient PSU, you can end up saving money as it will require less electricity to power your PC. The "80 Plus" Certification shows that the power supply has been tested to have 80% efficiency at every load. There are higher tiers of 80 Plus that show even higher efficiency such as 80+ Bronze or Silver. As the efficiency of the PSU gradually drops during the lifespan of the PSU, it is recommended to opt for a PSU with the maximum efficiency possible as long as it agrees with your budget.
