associatedcontent I joined the United States Air Force and worked on test equipment for nuclear missiles. The cables for testing the newer Air Launched Cruise Missile had a braided plastic sheathing to prevent the wires inside the cables from getting damaged and prevent wear on the wires. This plastic braiding made working on the wires when we needed to remove connectors and routing the cables inside equipment very easy. The Iceberg 680 Watt Power Supply from Apevia has this same type of protective braid on the bundles of power wires for added protection and making routing the separate cables easy. The ends of the cables have the heat shrink to protect the wires and connectors as well as prevent accidental shorts from wires touching things while working inside your computer.

ocia.net Many of you may not recognize the name Apevia (formally Aspire) since it's only been in use for 5-6 months now. Aspire International Corporation began marketing products under their new name Apevia in June of 2006 to avoid confusion with other products and services offered under the Aspire brand. Although the Aspire name had been in use since 1999, I think the online retail community has done a good job of keeping the buying public informed of the change, since most of their product line so far has been limited to computer cases and power supplies. Today I will be taking a look at Apevia's new top of the line Iceberg 680W power supply. With nearly a 700W rating this PSU looks ready to tackle the toughest of power requirements, and has some stunning good looks to match. There are also some pretty useful features you don't find on many other manufacturers power supplies, namely switchable illumination and see-through bottom, as well as a host of other handy gadgetry to keep your computer power needs well fed and easy to manage.

modthebox It feels like many years have passed since the pre-mod shockwave traveled through the mainstream PC marketplace. At the epicenter of this blast, was PC cases; with side windows, paint jobs, extra cooling and a list of other factory features not before seen on a retail case. Other PC devices and peripherals emerged from this force as it swept through the industry. UV reactive motherboards, fan-bus controllers, LED fans and illuminated ATA cables are but a few products that have been spawned by the pre-mod explosion. Today, aftershocks of that same bang still echo around the globe, as wild pre-mod designs emerge from the Power Supply sector of Personal Computer peripherals. One such product looks to be leading the way, the Iceberg Power by Apevia. Today in the MTB Labs, we will be evaluating this new 680W pre-modded power supply.

dragonsteelmods Today it seems we need bigger and bigger power supplies, with the coming of the 8800 series from Nvidia that is very much true. Just how much is enough though? How do you know exactly how much you need? There are many PSU calculators out there, and they all seem to be different, everyone has a different opinion as to just how much power you need. Today for review I have the Iceberg from Apevia, it is a 680Watt beast of a power supply, it has some really cool features, like the ability to change between three different colors and a plexi glass top and sides to show it off to the world. Well read on to see what I learned about the Iceberg...

overclockersclub This PSU (Power Supply Unit) is certainly an iceberg, weighing in at 680 watts with dazzling beauty. It features UV reactive sleeves and connectors with a clear window showing all the beautiful guts of the beast. It also includes adjustable color fans (three different colors) and a fan controller. Well this is all good and everything, but who is Apevia? Apevia, formally known as Aspire, is a very well known case and fan manufacturer that was established in 1999. Chances are that you’ve heard of these guys before, though they aren’t as well known in the power supply market. Let’s see if she lives up to Apevia’s reputation.
