    Gigabyte is adding to its small but growing lineup of power supply units with the new Odin Plus series mid-range PSUs. The company is planning three models in this series alongside more in the Odin GT and Odin Pro series to be detailed later. The three Odin Plus models include 500W, 600W, and 700W. These PSUs feature Japan-made solid-state capacitors, 6+2 pin PCI-Express power connectors, and a multi-rail +12V circuits. While the 500W and 600W models feature three +12V rails, the 700W one comes with four.

    The PSUs comply with ATX 2.3 standards, along with compliance for RoHS and WEEE specifications. Its efficiency makes it eligible for the 80 Plus Bronze rating. Power connectors include 24-pin ATX, 4+4 pin CPU power, two 6+2 pin PCI-Express power, four Molex (three on the 500W model), one and six SATA power (four on the 500W model). The Gigabyte Odin Plus series PSUs are expected to retail soon, priced between 110 and 140 EUR.

    You have a backup power button just in case the PSU is so powerful that it keeps running even after you turn off the main power button.

    The red button is for the power switch and the black one is fan LED. nice to see the fan LED switch is beside the power switch. I have the Odin Pro 800W currently feeding power to my rig the fan LED switch is on the other side of the PSU which is hard part of this PSU if you wanted to turn on the fan led you will need to remove the side panel of your case just to flick the switch :shadedshu. Mine is on all the time so not a prob.

    I agree, that is a pretty stupid place to put the led switch

    Gigabyte has made some nice PSUs, was hoping for higher wattages and maybe some with one 12V rail. PRice looks pretty nice too. Wonder who there OEM is, Seasonic with the prices?

    (Referring to the existence of the Switch, and quoting only to link to the topic, not commenting on this quote specifically)

    It's a standard on pretty much ALL high end PSU's, If you'd ever had one you'd know.

    Although LED fans are a great way to sell BS to N00BS, real power users find the retarded glowing a little distracting, or just generally distasteful, and like to turn it off - this switch allows the satisfaction of BOTH users rather than producing 2 separate power supply models, one WITH , and one WITHOUT LED's

    Surely this cant be too hard to understand.

    The PRO Odin series are pretty sweet, very very nice power supplies, I hope the plus series carries the same level of quality. :toast:

    Odin Plus 700w Review

    Admittedly an old topic, but Hardware Secrets just reviewed the Odin Plus 700w and it looks impressive—they pulled 881w out of it (link). More cables/connectors would be nice but this shows some promise.
