It would seem Nexus have done it again and come out with another top notch power supply. The NX-5000 R3 certainly shrugged off everything my test system could throw at it and I have no doubt would do the same with systems quite a bit more power hungry too. In use it is effectively silent as I cannot hear it over the rest of the fans in my set up and it is by no means loud. Whilst the actual case of the NX-5000 R3 is nothing to look at the braiding, in my opinion, is certainly pleasing on the eye, much better than plain black anyway.
Retailing at around £70 itís not cheap but then you get what you pay for and it is priced in accordance with the quality competition. Time and time again I see people build a top notch system and think its ok to use a £20 power supply, power supplies are not all made the same.
I really cannot fault the NX-5000 R3 itís a very capable performer, ok it might not have the bling of some power supplies, which, letís be honest, not everyone wants, but at the end of the day it excels in what its job is and that is to run a high-ish power computer.
- Well built.
- Powerful enough for all but the most powerful spec pcís.
- Cables sleeved from psu to last connector.
- Mains lead not included.
Reality Check: A quality power supply at a respectable price. If you are on the hunt for a mid range power supply, then look no further the Nexus NX-5000 R3 is what you need RECOMMENDED.
