QPower 1050w

Power supply units


For a £100 PSU, this unit performs pretty damn well. It’s got nice tight rails that fluctuate only slightly when moving from idle to load states; though the 12v rail lets the team down by not being particularly close to the ideal. The impressively low noise levels – minus the slight electronic ticking – is also a great feature of the unit.

While the QPower 1050 from, I suppose either "e" or "Andyson" is in no way perfect, but it covers almost all the bases very well indeed. The only bit I’m not too impressed by is the loose 12v rail. If you don’t mind a slightly imperfect set of rails, and want a quiet and affordable PSU that’s capable of powering a very high end setup, then this QPower will most definitely suit you to the ground.

Pros Cons
Good 3.3v and 5v rails Poor 12v rail
Reasonable price Not modular
Low noise levels
