Best of CES 2016 – Thermaltake ToughPower DPS G 1250W PSU

CES 2016: This year’s show was packed full of great new products, but few brands brought as many new toys to the show as Thermaltake. Even with so much to show off this year, there was one product in particular that really stood out for us in the Thermaltake suite, the Thermaltake ToughPower DPS G RGB 1250W Power Supply.

While it may not have the easiest to remember product name, it does pack a lot of features that are simply the best you could ask for from a PSU today. Equipped with 80 Plus Titanium efficiency, the highest quality components and capacitors, fully braided and flat cables for excellent routing and management, an RGB fan and smart connect features, the DPS G certainly has what it takes to compete with any of the other big names in the PSU market.

What’s really important, however, is that it is SPM Supported and that you can monitor and control the unit from the web, desktop or mobile apps. Check your efficiency, load, fan speeds, temperatures and more, tweak the performance as needed, or just log in to change the colour of the pre-installed RGB Thermaltake Riing fan, the choice is yours.

Thermaltake are so confident in this unit that they’re blessing it with a 10-year warranty, and if that doesn’t give you piece of mind over the build quality and performance of this unit, nothing will.

G.Skill Branches out and Showcase Ripjaws Power Supply

It looks like G.Skill wasn’t happy with just manufacturing great memory modules as they’re branching out into new areas. One of them is the power supply area and their first play looks quite impressive.

The new PSUs are dubbed Ripjaws just as the memory modules and you can expect the same kind of quality here. It starts out with the PS750G and the PS850G that both come with 80 Plus Gold certification and an efficiency rating of 90%. The two PSUs come with 750W and 850W respective and are fully modular units.

The PS850P and PS1250P are even better and they got an even higher efficiency rating. These two power supply units come with 80 Plus Platinum rating and an efficiency rating of 92%. Just as the two Gold models, these are also fully modular.

All Ripjaws series PSUs are made from with high-quality materials, such as 100% Japanese-made capacitors that ensure a high reliability and longer lasting lifetime.

The units are cooled by the unique automated G.SKILL ECO Optimized (GEO) Thermal Fan Control that also provides zero fan noise during low load operations. The used 140mm fans also use durable double ball bearings. Built-in protections include OVP, UVP, OCP, OPP, SCP, and OTP.

G.Skill did not announce a time of availability nor a price yet, but we will keep you updated with this information as they become available.
