AeroCool this week debuted the Dorado line of mid-range power-supplies. These PSUs come with fixed cabling, but RGB-illuminated fans, and 80 Plus Gold efficiency, putting them in a sub-segment of their own. The AeroCool Dorado comes 550 W, 650 W, and 750 W capacities, all three of which include two 4+4 pin EPS connectors (including the 550 W model). Designed for single GPU builds, the 750 W model comes with three 6+2 pin PCIe connectors; while the 650 W and 550 W models come with two.

The AeroCool Dorado uses a 120 mm "high pressure" fan with addressable RGB LED illumination. An internal controller lets you cycle between 13 lighting presets, or you can sync the lighting to any ARGB source through a standard 3-pin header. The fan maintains 800 RPM (10 dBA claimed) operation up to 50% load. Under the hood, the Dorado comes with a single +12 V rail design, active PFC, DC-to-DC switching, Japanese main capacitors, and most common electrical protections. The fixed cabling on these PSUs are flat, ribbon-type, including for the 24-pin connector. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Because is budget series. Best series of today power supplies begin from Platinum efficiency and above it(Titanium; Diamond. "Gold" is too ordinary.
DIAMOND≥93% overall efficiency≥0.985>79%<0.10W
TITANIUM≥91% to 93% overall efficiency≥0.980>77%<0.13W
PLATINUM≥89% to 91% overall efficiency≥0.975>76%<0.16W
DIAMOND≥95% overall efficiency≥0.945>78%<0.12W
TITANIUM≥93% to 95% overall efficiency≥0.940>76%<0.15W
PLATINUM≥91% to 93% overall efficiency≥0.935>75%<0.18W

More for power supply efficiency here. In Wikipedia page is not refreshing soon with new info.

It's cheaper man. You can't drive the price down with all the bells and whistles :)

Supposed to be "budget" series, but you bet will be marked up because "aaaaaRRRRR Geeeee Beeeeeee!!!111111!!!!!!" :rolleyes:

At least it has DC-DC and is full range unlike their garbage Lux offerings, I guess...

Modular PSU should be standard by now... I remember using the PCP&C Silencer line (10+ years ago) and while it was a great PSU, had so many cables that I couldn't hide. Cant stand all of the extra, unused cables of non-modular PSU's.

I find it hard to use a PSU that isn't one of the big boi brands. I'm that sensitive when it comes to something that feeds my entire system, regardless of build price point.

Also yes, modular please, it's 2021.
