EVGA Launches the New B5 Series of Power Supplies
Mike Sanders / 2 years ago
EVGA is well recognized as being on the best power supply manufacturers out there. In something of full-disclosure, in fact, I actually have one of their PSUs in my system and have absolutely no complaints about it. As such, when a new series is announced, they definitely have our attention here!
So, what’s new? Well, EVGA has formally announced the brand new B5 series of power supplies. A design looking to ‘push the boundaries of bronze’.
EVGA B5 Series Power Supplies
Being bronze efficiency rated, on the surface that this may not seem like a particularly notable range of releases. There are, after all, 4 higher efficiency tiers. What EVGA is keen to emphasize, however, is that while retaining a low price, they have done everything they can to try and make this range as impressive as possible!
Features and Specification
- Fully Modular, Small-size The B5 power supplies provide maximum flexibility for system builders with a fully modular design and a small chassis across all models. At 150mm length, the B5 power supplies provide solid, affordable power for all manner of system builds and cases.
- Safe & Reliable Japanese Capacitors Next, the B5 power supplies feature one of the most important standards for reliability – Japanese capacitors. Featuring 100% Japanese capacitors on the 850W and 750W models, the B5 power supplies will provide a safe and reliable power for years to come. (650W B5 and 550W B5 models use a Japanese main capacitor.)
- Silent, Long-lasting 135MM Fluid-Dynamic Bearing Fan with ECO MODE The ultra-quiet 135mm FDB fan becomes silent when coupled with EVGA ECO mode to turn off the fan in low to medium loads. The larger fan and carefully tuned profile create a quieter experience than the B3 power supplies.
- Efficiency and Regulation Designed for the Modern PC Featuring an LLC Resonant design + DC to DC converter, EVGA B5 power supplies are up to 89% efficient – well above 80 Plus Bronze requirements. Moreover, the B5 power supplies are designed with modern standards, including ATX V2.52, for performance and stability.
