NZXT is also showing off its new line of 80 Plus Bronze certified PSUs, the HALE82 N (non-modular). The HALE82 supports up to 3.5A for 5V standby, enabling high current draw for charging smartphones/tablets from your PC while in standby mode. The PSUs feature white fan blades and a white PCB in addition to supporting the 2013 ErP Lot 6 spec for a max of 0.5W power draw in standby mode - unfortunately to meet this spec you'll also need motherboard support for it as well.

NZXT also showed us their new Hue RGB LED controller. Priced under $30 the Hue uses a SATA power connector to drive a single 2m long strip of LEDs. The LEDs can be configured to fade, switch or remain stuck at a single color. Three dials give you control over the final color.

    I guess if the price is right, these new PSUs can be of interest. But until that's out, they're still ordinary Bronze non-modular units...

    I wish PSU makers would work on bringing down the price of Gold and Platinum units. Does NZXT make its own PSU's or do they source it from an OEM?

    No, they source them from Seasonic.
