NZXT Hale82 V2 550W – The White Power Supply

NZXT is a well-known company which started off as a designer and manufacturer of cases. The company soon diversified into cooling and power related products. Today they offer two series of power supplies, the Hale82 and Hale90. As the name implies, each series has a different efficient rating. Each series is also split into subseries, three and two respectively, depending on the color of the unit and whether is of modular design or not. Today we are having a look at the 550W version of the Hale82V2.

The Hale82V2 is a modular power supply and, as the name implies, comes with an 80Plus Bronze efficiency rating. It also is white, which is a relatively rare thing for a power supply. NZXT currently has two Hale82 V2 units available, a 550W and a 700W model, the former of which is being put to the test today.

    I don’t agree that it is recommended, not even sure it deserves a pass. For the same price you can get gold more updated units at the same wattage that perform way better (e.g. CM’s V550S). Enough said but thanks for the review tho.

      I don’t think you understand what you’re saying here. The internals of nearly every Corsair PSU, bar the AX series which is made by Seasonic, are nothing better than anything that you would find in a cheap, no-name PSU. Sorry to be blunt but it’s the truth – Corsair power supplies straight up aren’t that good.
