Thermaltake Outs Toughpower PF1 ARGB Power Supply Series

Thermaltake today rolled out the Toughpower PF1 ARGB of high-end power supplies. Available in three high-Wattage models of 850W, 1050W, and 1200W, these PSUs are characterized by their large 140 mm Riing Duo 14 RGB fans, and addressable RGB LED embellishments along both sides of the body, which together make up 18 diodes. To control the lighting, the PSU plugs into a 3-pin addressable RGB header of your motherboard or lighting controller. In the absence of external control, you can cycle through built-in lighting presets by pushing buttons at the tail end of the PSU, located sufficiently away from the main AC switch. Another switch located close to the AC switch, completely turns off the fan.

Aesthetics aside, these PSU have some serious chops: single +12V rail design with 80 Plus Platinum rated efficiency, full DC-to-DC switching, LLC digital control, 100% Japanese capacitors, active PFC, and most common electrical protection mechanisms against over/under voltage, over/under current, overload, overheat, and short-circuit. You get fully modular cabling, with all three models offering two 4+4 pin EPS connectors. The 850W model has up to six 6+2 pin PCIe connectors, while the 1050W and 1200W offer eight. Thermaltake is backing these PSUs with 10-year warranties. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Your article mentions there is a button that turns off the fan, I doubt it does that, instead it is off in idle and on when on load.
RGayB for PSUs...really useless.

Most cases the psu faces down and in lower area of case, wasteful spending.
