PSU Applications:
Gaming: One component that often gets overlooked during the component-choosing process is the power supply. Your power supply is important because the quality of the PSU you choose will dictate what other components you can put into your computer right now and down the road. If you choose a low-end power supply you won’t be able to put in a high-end graphics card.  
Cryptocurrency: Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and a digital payment system. Bitcoin is at another fresh all-time high as of May 1, 2017. The cryptocurrency trades are up 7.2%. Bitcoin has been the top-performing currency every year since 2010.

1. Bitcoin
Bitcoin is the original cryptocurrency and still the most valuable on the market today. It is the market leader due to its established reputation worldwide, its security and the huge community base powering it. Bitcoin holds significant value and has received media attention around the world. Retailers such as Amazon have started to accept Bitcoin by allowing consumers to purchase gift cards with the cryptocurrency.

2. Ethereum
Ether is seen as a sort of token, a fuel as described on their website that is used to pay for computation. It is not intended to be used as a form of currency. Ethereum differs from Bitcoin in the sense that it is completely programmable. The platform allows developers to build and activate applications within the blockchain technology. Miners work to earn Ether rather than mine for Bitcoin.

3. Ripple
Ripple is a digital currency known as XRP and the network where transactions using XRP take place. They take a similar approach to Bitcoin and want to enable money to flow freely, removing fees and waiting times. They operate using a peer-to-peer network and have many similarities to Bitcoin. Ripple don’t see themselves as rivals to Bitcoin though; they see themselves complementing the Bitcoin service.

4. Litecoin
Litecoin is another popular cryptocurrency, often known as LTC, which operates on a peer-to-peer network. Many believe Litecoin to be a direct competitor to Bitcoin as the way it works is very similar. The currency operates on a blockchain and mining takes place to verify transactions and to provide security.


The PSU are an essential ingredient in cryptocurrency mining rigs. Here is an example of an Ethereum mining unit:

Highly efficiient PSU offer the greatest return on the investment because it minimizes the power consumption required to run the machines.
These units are Gold rated which is shown below:
Efficiency Level Certifications

Redundancy is typically used in data centers. For the higher certification levels, the requirement of 0.9 or better power factor was extended to apply to 20% and 50% load levels, as well as at 100% load. The Platinum level requires 0.95 or better power factor for servers.

The Climate Savers Computing Initiative efficiency level targets for workstations for 2007 through 2011, correspond to the 80 Plus certification levels. From July 2007 through June 2008, basic 80 Plus level (Energy Star 4.0). For the next year target is 80 Plus Bronze level, the following year 80 Plus Silver, then 80 Plus Gold, and finally Platinum.


The Gold as a smart choice affording up to 92% efficiency without having to pay the premium price for platinum.
