    Thortech is an affiliate brand of GeIL. It's been making industrial/server PSUs for 15 years now.
    Mussels, 1c3d0g and Jack Doph say thanks.

    So they actually make them or do they just design them and get some other company to produce them like Corsair does?

    I love the idea of the iPower Meter showing the efficiency, wattage, temperature and fan control.

    Fan control is something i would love to have as my corsair HX620 can get pretty toasty but the fan always stays 100% silent, i would love to be able to up the fan speed a little even if it came at the cost of it making a sound for the first time in it's life :laugh:

    Thanks for the link, time to do some reading.

    Been seeing a lot of 80 plus GOLD PSUs being released.
    Hopefully they will become mainstream within two years or so :toast:

    About time company's released their PSU's with a display. Wish jonnyguru tried it without the display connected for those who don't have the space for it.

    Heatsinks to me seemed a little small but according to Jonn it does well with them.

    I have never heard of Thortech, is this a EU brand, it looks impressive, but I wouldn't have clue where I could see one as I would like to get my hands on one, just how I roll with everything I buy.
