FSP Announces Liquid-Cooled Hydro PTM+ 850W Power Supply

FSP, one of the leading manufacturers of power supplies in the world is pleased to announce its second liquid-cooled power supply, the Hydro PTM+ 850W. With the success of the Hydro PTM+ 1200W, the Hydro PTM+ 850W gives enthusiast gamers the ability to unleash the complete performance of their PC while remaining both a cool and silent PSU. During normal desktop use, watching movies, and light gaming, the Hydro PTM+ 850W remains completely silent as it can be passively cooled until 425W.

Using the integrated Bitspower liquid cooling systems allows the Hydro PTM+ 850W to deliver up to 1000W in power when the system demands it. In all other circumstances, the intelligent fan will keep performance great, and noise low. Its unique cooling solution and advanced design (using DC-DC modules) allow for an industry-leading 92% efficiency. The liquid cooling connectors use G1/4" / 12mm connectors for hard- and soft tubing, making it the best choice for case modders that look to fully integrated their PSU into their dream machine. Finally, changeable side-stickers and integrated RGB lighting allow users to customize the Hydro PTM+ 850W to their hearts' content.
High-grade components and DC-DC design with 80 Plus Platinum rating
Internally, the Hydro PTM+ 850W is made of only the best components such as 100% Japanese made capacitors for reliable power and have a prolonged lifespan. The design uses a single 12V rail with a DC-DC module for maximum efficiency and stability. This allows for the extremely high 92% efficiency rating and 80 PLUS Platinum certification. Over-current, over-voltage, and over-temperature protection provide safety and stability. While rated at 850W, with liquid-cooling enabled, the Hydro PTM+ 850W is able to deliver up to 1000W.

Bitspower integrated liquid cooling
The Hydro PTM+ 850W utilizes an advanced liquid cooling solution developed by Bitspower and integrated into the Hydro PTM+ 850W. This unique solution is aimed at those that want to get the most performance and best look out of their system. It allows optimal cooling whether the liquid-cooling system is engaged or not. Below a load of 425W, no additional cooling is necessary, from 425 to 850W a smart fan solution is engaged for low noise and optimal performance. Finally, when the liquid cooling solution is connected and engaged, performance is increased up to 1000W, making the Hydro PTM+ 850W the most efficient 1 Kilowatt PSU available.

Availability
The FSP Hydro PTM+ 850W is now available at a MSRP of $399 USD. For more information, visit the product page.

Why don't they show how the cooling is attached on the inside? The internal picture makes no reference to internal cooling.
This just seems like a money grab opportunity.

I like my power and water separate.


EDIT: Does this come with a Lloyd's of London insurance policy in the event of accidental rupture that takes out a whole system?
How about "double indemnity" for system death?

It only proofs you under-specced your radiator in the beginning. I never regretted getting an external 1080 rad with 9x120mm, basically ambient temp cooling ;)

This is super old news. It has been doing the sounds for years and was also proven that it doesn’t cool very well at all. It cools the back side of the PCB... that’s it.

For those that want to WC it in the future, but still have air for now...?

Either way, as I said, it performs like utter crap and isn’t worthwhile in any sense.

It's a niche product.

All i can say is I hope all of the components have a silicon or resin seal on them and a gfci built in if the block ever leaks...
