    b-Tarantula 650 Watt PSU



    Bgears has been hard at work bring new products to their line over the last year. Today we are going to take a look at one of their latest power supplies. The Bgears b-Tarantula 650 Watt PSU. Although some users might say that a 650W power supply doesn't offer enough power for todays rigs, while the rest of us know that a good 650W unit will offer plenty of power for most users.

    Read the full review here.

    Cool review Tazz ..... nice PSU and your right it would be enough for most needs. I know that it is bigger than what I run presently myself. Looks to be up to the challenge.

    Nice review Tazz
    One question though.. What does this mean:
    Combined +12V = 37A
    If I understand correctly, you're able to actually "bridge" the 2 12V (2x20A) rails in one 12V (37A) rail? If so, why the 3A less? I'm gonna be an electrician someday (preety soon actually xD) but you can't get familiar with this kind of stuff in school (bummer :P ) but it would be cool to know this.. I know that you can't put 2 different (or even same) PSUs together but I must admint, I've never tried putting 2 rails together to see what happens..

    Most dual rail units are actually single rail PSU's. In this case both of the +12V rails are getting their feed from the same +12V source (which is limited at the 37A). The max 20A per rail is the maximum that rail can handle, but doesn't mean you can run both at their limits at the same time.
