Budget Power Solutions...

The HEC Raptor Series

On a tight budget, sometimes we can neglect the power requirements of our PC system, relying on those "generic" PSU that comes with the computer case we buy. Then soon you will notice hard booth, no power, and worst, smoking components... (my hard drive was smoking..)
Good thing there are solutions that will fit the budget of an amateur builder will that at least protect and give stable power on his investment.




The Raptor Series provides stable voltage output and protects the system from harmful power surges and voltage spikes. And it has a full line of products from 300 watts up to 500 watts that will give budget builders an option on choosing cheap power solutions.

There you have it folks, since the HEC Raptor series can give you a 72% efficiency, it would not pass the 80% plus power efficiency factor of those high-end PSUs. But for a budget PSU that can give you stable power and protection from surges and voltage spikes, its no brainer that HEC Raptor Series fits in nicely...
