Introduction



I would like to thank GIGABYTE for kindly providing the PSU sample.

The GIGABYTE Odin GT is a very special power supply. It allows you to connect the PSU to your PC via USB for control of many features. You can control the output voltage for example or adjust the fan speeds manually. It is also possible to monitor the power draw, current or a number of voltages.

Packaging


Nice slogan! The rest of the package lists all the important features, a screenshots of the P-Tuner application is included as well. However, if this unit was on a crowded shop shelf I would have never guessed that its special feature is software control over many aspects of the PSU. Some bigger text would have helped.

Box contents:
  • Power supply unit
  • Bag with cables
  • Instruction Manual, Two Screw Packages
  • Temperature sensors + cables
  • PCI Slot Bracket



Usually you connect the power supply directly to an internal USB header on your motherboard. Should you not have such a header, or you already used all of them, you can use this bracket and its cable to cleanly route the PSU's interface cable to the outside of the case to plug it into a USB connector.
