Power supplies

- Antec 1.0% (against 0.6%)
- CoolerMaster 1.0% (against 1.1%)

Antec retains its spot as top dog, alongside CoolerMaster, in spite of an increase in its returns, which nevertheless remain very low! Seasonic comes in third, which is a great improvement, while Enermax has also improved its score. Thermaltake is last, but with a returns rate that is nevertheless okay.

Only two models have a rate of over 5%, the Corsair TX 950W (7.6%) and the Fortron Blue Storm Bronze 500W (5.7%). The first was mentioned in our last article and we hope that we won’t have to mention it again in the next one!
