SilverStone HELA 2050 Power Supply is Hella Powerful, Hella Compact

SilverStone today introduced the HELA 2050 fully modular ATX power supply. This absolute unit packs over 2 kW of juice in a box that’s just 18 cm in length. Typically, PSUs over 1600 W are over 20 cm in length. The 18 cm length makes this PSU fit for even mid-towers, if you’ve figured out what to do with that much power—a record-chasing overclock on both your swanky new Core i9-12900K plus an equally maxed out RTX 3090 or RX 6900 XT. The PSU has been certified Cybenetics Platinum for its main function, and Cybenetics Standard+ for acoustics.

The SilverStone HELA 2050 W uses a 135 mm double ball-bearing fan, and can be made to run completely fanless up to 820 W load. Connectors include one 24-pin ATX, two 4+4 pin EPS, one 12-pin Molex microfit 3.0 connector that you can directly plug into NVIDIA RTX 30-series Founders Edition graphics cards, eighteen 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors, twelve SATA power, three 4-pin Molex, and a Berg. Under the hood, the HELA 2050 uses a single 170-Amp +12 V rail (enough juice to crank a truck). You also get active PFC, DC-to-DC switching (up to 120 W on the 5 V and 3.3 V rails), and most common electrical protections. Available toward late-December 2021, the SilverStone HELA 2050 is expected to be priced at USD $599.
