Chieftec GPS-500C compatibility review

The Chieftec GPS-500C power supply has a maximum wattage output of 500W. This is a mid-range capacity, and should be fine as long as it is part of an equally mid-range system build. Always make sure that a purchased PSU is capable of powering your system. Remember that a higher PSU capacity does not necessarily equate to a higher wattage output and a more expensive electricity bill. In fact, you may find that a higher capacity PSU will function more efficiently than a lower capacity PSU because it is dealing with a lower percentage of its maximum load - that is, it is not being stressed to the same extent.

The Chieftec GPS-500C has an 80 Plus rating of Platinum. This means the PSU operates at average efficiency levels of at least 89%, 92%, and 90% for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20% respectively. Platinum is the best 80 Plus certificate available, and as such the Chieftec GPS-500C is exceptionally efficient and comes very highly recommended. The actual efficiencies for this PSU are 90.77%, 92.83%, and 91.47%, for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%.

The dimensions of the Chieftec GPS-500C (LxWxH) are 17cm x 15cm x 8.7cm. Make sure to compare these measurements against the case you desire if planning on using it in a build.

The Chieftec GPS-500C is modular, meaning that cables can be taken out and connected back in as necessary. This can make cable management much easier, leading to a less chaotic build, and better airflow.

The Chieftec GPS-500C is designed for low volumes, meaning that its constant drone while your PC is on would be less noticeable - ideal for those that prefer silent environments.
