Cougar Rolls Out VTE X2 ARGB Power Supply Series

Cougar today rolled out the VTE X2 ARGB line of mid-range power supplies targeted at e-Sports gaming PC builds, particularly those who value a lot of RGB bling in their PCs. This PSU is characterized by a 120 mm addressable RGB LED-illuminated fan, and an ARGB-illuminated Cougar logo along one of the sides (the other having the power distribution and regulatory stickers). The PSU features an internal ARGB controller, and a button near the AC receptacle lets you cycle between presets. You can also sync the PSU to your build's lighting through a 3-pin ARGB connector.

The Cougar VTE X2 ARGB comes in 550 W, 650 W, and 750 W capacities, and offers fixed cabling. Under the hood, you get a single +12 V rail design with 80 Plus Bronze efficiency, up to 99% power factor, Japanese standby capacitors, DC-to-DC switching, and most common electrical protections. All three models come with one 4+4 pin EPS connector. The 550 W and 650 W models include two 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors, while the 750 W model comes with four. The 550 W model comes with five SATA power connectors, while the others have eight. The company didn't reveal pricing.

PSU is set of capacitors, transformers, coils, controllers, diodes and other electronics. There is no way how it could be "designed for esports". Oh wait, they added RGB fan...

In Europe midrage non moldular 600W PSUs (80+ Bronze, DC-DC, such as Chieftec Proton or SilentiumPC Vero L2) cost about 50 - 60 euro. It they will ask more it wouldn't be worth to buy it.

i dont know about how others install their PSU's, but in all but one of the cases i have owned, the PSU fan (if installed properly) should point down , towards the PSU fan filter.....which begs the question, who is that RGB fan for??? spiders? mice? :wtf:

I know right.
I've seen some iTX cases that are a total fail in that they have the PSU fan directly over the CPU cooler fighting for the same air, and the cases are solid cubes with little airflow. :slap:

because... the ATX standard has the PSU fan as the primary exhaust?
