Best Buy selling power supplies… BFG branded at that… I knew they sold Antec and other off brands, but I guess this is good.  I try and stay away from BB if at all possible, I hate being bothered by those reps, I probably know more than most of them in the store…

Lake Forest, IL – August 11, 2009 – BFG Technologies, a leading supplier of premium power supplies and 3D graphics cards, is excited to announce the new EX-1000, 1000 watt modular power supply.   The EX Series ushers in a new approach to power supply design, utilizing BFG’s proprietary Frequency Conversion Technology.  Frequency Conversion Technology drastically improves low load efficiency by emulating a lower sized power supply.  This allows the EX-1000 to remain at least 80% efficient, even with loads as low as 10% of the unit’s maximum capacity. The EX power supplies have the lowest minimum load requirements and offer the best +5VSB efficiency on the market.
This remarkable performance netted EX-1000 the coveted 80 PLUS Bronze rating from www.80plusgold.org.  The 80 PLUS performance specification requires multi-output computer and server power supplies to be 80% or greater energy efficient at 20%, 50% and 100% of rated load, with a true power factor of 0.9 or greater.  
Of the 1627 power supplies currently certified to be 80 PLUS efficient, only 157 (less than 10%) are 1000W or greater, further distinguishing setting apart the EX-1000 from the competition.  The EX-1000 was rated higher than the Cosair 1000W, an OCZ EliteXstream, a SilverStone OP1000, and two Enermax 1000W power supplies.

The EX-1000 comes with a lifetime warranty, 24/7 tech support and is available now exclusively at select Best Buy stores and online at www.BestBuy.com for $199.99.
