    Hey Amit, can I write an article on best PSUs. Is it allowed to write about PSU instead of SMPS. Both are related products. Please let me know fast.

  • #20313
    Muddassir, PSU is a generic term used for devices that supply power to a PC. SMPS on the other hand is a technology that most PC PSUs use. By using the term SMPS in the contest, we intend to invite articles on the PSUs that power today's computers. What we don't need are articles on power supply units (adapters etc) used for laptops.

    Please go ahead and write on the best PSUs for PC. Looking forward to your entry!

    @ Amit, Are you sure the deadline was 00:00 hours? On Techulator and other sister sites the date switches over to the next day when that happens in the US, where the servers are. US being behind us in time the date change doesn't happen until hours later. Accordingly, the contest should close somewhere around 13:30 hours today, (that is 01st March) or thereabout, and not at midnight as per your update.

    @ Prashant, You have until after noon to submit your entry to the contest, as explained above. Hope you see this post and get to submit your article.
