Thermaltake Unveiled Latest Toughpower DPS G Platinum Series

Thermaltake unveiled its latest power supplies in the Toughpower DPS G Platinum series and it isn’t the average run-of-the-mill power supply either. It is an 80 Plus Platinum certified and digitally controlled power supply and it comes in three wattage sizes: 850W, 1050W, and 1200W.

The new Toughpower DPS G Platinum Series with the aid of the DPS G Software, DPS G PC APP 2.0, DPS G Smart Power Management Cloud 1.0, provides the system with not only clean and stable power, but also three intelligent platforms that allows users to monitor and record the status of power consumption, voltage distribution, and the electricity cost for advance usage. The SPM Platform also helps to save energy, reduce CO2 emission, and in turn protect the environment.

The power supplies are built with a massive single +12V rail, high-quality Japanese capacitors, and has a 140mm ultra quiet fan with smart fan control. It is fully modular, allowing you to connect just the cables you need for a clean and organized system build. It also features all the protections you’ll want such as Over Current, Over Power, Over Voltage, Under Voltage, Over Temperature, and Short-Circuit protection.

It is also a power supply that should last you a long time as it comes with a minimum mean time before failure of 120,000 hours, which equals to 5000 days or almost 14 years. Thermaltake knows they got a great product on their hand and it shows. This is also reflected in the 7-year warranty that the PSUs are backed by.

Seasonic Platinum 1050W Modular Power Supply Review

Introduction & Packaging


Seasonic is one of the most respected PSU manufacturers in the world, not only do they create their own premium grade units, but they’re also one of the most popular manufacturers used by a range of PSU brands around the world. Time and time again we’ve seen them deliver flawless designs, incredible performance and a whole lot more, so we’re very excited to have one of their latest and greatest units on our test bench today.

The Seasonic 1050W packs a huge amount of power, making it an ideal choice for overclockers and those with multiple graphics cards in their systems. It comes with premium grade components throughout and this helps it operate at 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, meaning it’ll cost you less on your electricity bill to run vs Gold, Bronze and below rated PSU units.

Packed with features such as Ultra Stable Voltage, a Hybrid Silent Fan Control which allows for 0RPM operation at low loads and Dual Copper Bars, the 1050W Platinum sounds like a premium choice for system builders.

As you can see, the 1050W hits all the usual requirements of a modern PSU, can operate between 100-240v AC and features all the protection features you would expect.

The packaging is nicely designed, keeping in theme with the rest of the Seasonic range.

Around the back, a quick run down of what 80 Plus Platinum efficiency is, as well as a run down of the major features; which we’ll take a look at in a moment.

In the box, you’ll find a durable storage bag that houses all the modular PSU cables and the 3-pin power cable.

There’s also an assortment of plastic and velcro cable ties to aid with cable management, an owners manual and with this unit, a UK 3-pin power cable.

Seasonic Announces Snow White 1050 Watts Hybrid PSU

Seasonic has announced what must be the PSU of the season, a snow white PSU dubbed the Snow Silent-1050 (SS-1050XP Active PFC) that as the name suggests is a 1050 watts power supply. The new PSU is 80 Plus Platinum certified and fully modular as well as hybrid-treated for the fan.

Not only does the Snow Silent feature a hybrid fan setup that completely turns itself off when the device is cold enough, but it also has the option to disable this feature and just run it normally with the fan spinning all the time. The single +12V rail design should ensure equal performance of all connected devices.

The Snow Silent features plenty of connectivity and support for up to four graphics cards. The total connection count is one 24-pin ATX, one 8-pin and one 4+4-pin EPS, eight 6+2-pin PCI-Express, fourteen SATA, five Molex and one Berg/floppy connector. No word on pricing or availability yet, but it sure looks great.

Thermaltake Launches New Power Supply and Smart Software

We have already had a little preview at the new power supply at Computex 2014, and now they are officially launched. The latest Toughpower DPS G Series is an innovative 80 PLUS Gold certified and digitally-controlled power supply, ranging from 450W and up to 1050W. It is also compatible with the DPSApp software.

After receiving favourable reviews and feedbacks from many friends of media and associates on DPS Series last year, Thermaltake decided to expand the series with a much more reasonable price.

The new DPS G series with the aid of DPSApp Software not only provides the system with clean and stable power, it also creates an intelligent platform that allows users to monitor and record the status of power consumption, voltage distribution and the electricity cost for advance usage.

Out of all the PSU monitoring software applications, Thermaltake DPSApp is the most powerful, flexible, universal and easy-to-use supreme monitoring tool to have on the market.

The power supplies use 100% 105°C Japanese brand electrolytic capacitors and are Haswell Ready. For convenience all cables are modular on all models, 450W, 550W, 650W, 750W, 850W and 1050W. No word on pricing yet.
