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.

In Win Intros Classic Basic Series High-Wattage PSUs

In Win today introduced the modestly named Classic Basic (CB) series high-Wattage PSUs. These are high-end PSUs with premium specifications, whose naming probably reflects the classic product design. Available in 1050W and 1200W models, the CB series PSUs offer fully modular flat cabling, DC-to-DC switching for the +3.3V and +5V rails, and a single +12V rail design, boasting of 80 Plus Platinum efficiency. The 135 mm temperature-activated fan stays off when either the PSU's load is under 25%, or an internal thermal diode reads under 55°C. It only starts spinning beyond, with a gradual curve. The fan spins for 60 seconds following system shutdown.

Under the hood, the CB-series features a Digital Voltage Feedback design that minimizes output voltage fluctuation to under ±2%; an active PFC, and electrical protections against over/under-voltage, overload, overheat, and short-circuit. Both models offer two 8-pin EPS connectors besides the 24-pin ATX. The 1200W model offers eight 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors, while the 1050W model offers six. Both models offer 16 SATA power, and a number of other legacy power connectors. Both models are backed by 7-year warranties.

ASUS Announces the Premium ROG Thor PSU Lineup

ASUS ROG launched the ROG Thor 1200W Platinum and ROG Thor 850W Platinum power supply units, welcoming a new product category to the ROG family. The ROG Thor series is designed for enthusiasts who need a high-end PSU with advanced cooling, premium components, and customisable lightning.

In a PSU, component heatsinks are vital when optimizing thermal efficiency. The ROG Thor 1200W Platinum features custom ROG heatsinks that boast 2X more surface area than standard designs, and the ROG Thor 850W is similarly equipped. Having larger heatsinks and other premium components means cooler operation under load, an extended lifespan for key components, and silent operation long after standard designs spin up their fans.
