The Glacier D140 distro plate simplifies your routing to make it easier to create amazing water-cooling loops and with the integrated D-RGB adds extra flare to your custom build.

The Glacier series introduces the R160C and R220C, a reservoir solution with DDC pump mount for your water-cooling needs. The R160/220C features a new transparent backplate and integrated D-RGB to create a more stunning look to your build. The Glacier C360i and C360a water-blocks are also revealed this year to complement Intel's and AMD's new processors. Newly designed Glacier C360i and C360a blocks feature a full cover design, integrated D-RGB and comes with interchangeable cover plates (Black/Chrome). Complementing the Glacier (Asus ROG) Extreme Dominus kit, set for launch in June, Phanteks is expanding the extreme motherboard cooling solutions with the Gigabyte Aorus Extreme kit.

They are powered by USB and are perfect to be placed in space saving work spaces or for carrying around.

Just wanna make sure folks recognize that the "metal" rating has nothing to do with product performance ... it's merely an indicator of how much you spend on electricity. Not that this aspect should go ignored, but most folks equate the 80 plus rating with power quality and there is no direct relationship between the two. Also recognize that PSUs are most efficient at 50% load.

What uses more power ? ... a 1000 watt Bronze PSU 50% load or a 500 watt Silver PSU at 100% load ? They both use exactly the same:

1000 watt Bronze PSU Efficiency = 85% @ 50% Load, 82% @ 100% Load
50% Load = 1000 watts x 50% / 0.85 = 588 watts "at the wall"

500 watt SilverPSU Efficiency = 88% @ 50% Load, 85% @ 100% Load
50% Load = 500 watts x 100% / 0.85 = 588 watts "at the wall"

The original Phanteks Revolt Pro series was built on, IIRC, the Seasonic Platinum Prime platform ... and the Revolt X on the Seasonoc Gold Plus

The TPU article describes this series as "80 Plus Gold efficiency "

Given the pricing, $89, $99, and $109 for 550W, 650W, and 750W model respectively. ... that's pretty much identical to Seasonic Focus Plus Gold line which also features the hybrid fan technology. While we used to keep a host of different manufacturer / model lines on our recommended list, I find it hard, outside a huge sale, to grab anything else but the Focus Plus Gold series ... no matter who sellss it.

Okay I did not see that in my the initial read... Sorry, just just flows in the sentence. So thank you for pointing it out!

Probably why I personally have been a Seasonic owner on the last couple of builds. Though one machine still has a 550W PC Power & Cooling that's like 2010 vintage, just one of the best PSU you could go with back in the day

Why can't we just refer to "distro plates" by their real, globally known name that's been in use for nearly 100 years....... Say it with me folks: Manifold
