Today we are having a look at one more high performance product, the Direct12 BR (DP-1000BR) 1000W power supply from High Power, a company which just emerged in the retail market a mere 3 years ago. High Power however is a subsidiary company of Sirfa, a reputable OEM manufacturer of power supplies for many years, founded so as to give the manufacturer direct retail channel access. The specifications of the High Power Direct12 BR 1000W unit are at the very least interesting; we will find out how well it can compete against the stiff competition of the high performance PSU market in this review.

Manufacturer’s features and specifications

  • 80 PLUS BRONZE certified Offer 85% minimum efficiency at 50% load
  • Golf- Surface Fan Whisper quiet double ball-bearing (up to 800W) 13.5cm golf surface fan brings more airflow volume with less noise than convention.
  • Off- Delay Fan (Fan Stays On After System Off) It allows PSU fan to continue running after system shut down for few seconds approximately, it helps to exhaust residual air at the end of the heating/cooling cycle for extending component life.
  • Single +12V Output Rail – Offers maximum compatibility for the +12V demand.
  • 100% Japan- made Capacitors – Longer lifespan than electrolytic capacitors. (under 800W main capacitor only)
  • Reliable Japan- made Solid-state Capacitors – Enhance your system durability and stability even under extreme conditions. (apply to 850W and 1000W)
  • Easily Detachable and Flexible Modular Cables – Use only the cables you need. Reduce clutter from unused connectors and enhance the air flow inside your system. Specific color connectors and infixed socket with sticker design to ease installation.
  • PCI-Express Power Connectors – Sufficient and stable current to fully support SLI & CrossFire Systems
  • Advanced Double Forward Circuit and Double-Layer PCB – It brings more reliable, high efficiency and powerful power supply (Apply to 850W and 1000W)
  • All output cables with Nylon sleeve – Cable sleeve avoids cable clutter, allows neat and easy installation for an improved airflow.
  • Patented Easy Swap Connector – Quick and Easy installation
  • EuP 2010 Lot 6 compliant
  • RoHS Compliant – Made with hazardous-free components RoHS is the Restriction Of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment. This has been a standard in Europe and is now becoming a standard in the world. Not only lead, but cadium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants are limited as well.
  • What you see is what you get. NO Tweaks! – True Wattage Rating is the industry's way of designating a power supply model's wattage capacity. It is based on the total DC output wattages that a power supply can continuously provide.
