Thermaltake Intros Smart BX1 RGB Series Power Supplies

Thermaltake today introduced the Smart BX1 RGB series mid-range power supplies (PSUs). Available in 550W, 650W, and 750W variants, these PSUs bring some form of RGB LED bling to a mainstream feature-set. The star-attraction here is the 140 mm hydraulic bearing fan that's studded with ten 7-color LEDs. An internal lighting controller cycles between 7 colors, combination presets, lighting patterns, and light-off, at the push of a button near the AC receptacle (though sufficiently far from the main AC switch).

Under the hood, you get a single +12V rail design with 80 Plus Bronze efficiency, active PFC, an advertised ripple noise of <80 mV, and most common electrical protections, such as over/under-voltage, overload, overheat, and short-circuit. All three variants have enough juice and straws for a gaming PC build with 2-3 graphics cards. The 550W and 650W variants offer two 6+2 pin PCIe and six SATA power; while the 750W variant offers four PCIe with eight SATA power. All cables are fixed and flat (ribbon-type). Backed by a 5-year warranty, the Smart BX1 RGB series models are priced between $60 and $100.

LoL... This may as well be the end of the world as we know it, cause then their entire RGB ecosystem will become Alexa-aware, not just PSUs...
