Introduction & Packaging
Deepcool recently launched their first consumer line of power supply units called the Quanta Series. In this series Deepcool offer a range of wattages that suit mid-range to high-end builds. All the Quanta power supplies boast 80 Plus Gold efficiency, semi-modular cable arrangements, active PFC and large 140mm cooling fans (with some models having LEDs equipped). For their consumer power supply products Deepcool teamed up with cost-effective power supply vendor Channel Well Technology (CWT) who are best known for their work with Corsair on their CX series PSUs. Today we are reviewing Deepcool’s DQ1000 power supply.
Being a new entrant to the power supply market Deepcool have the disadvantage of having to prove their name to consumers who otherwise would not have heard of their products and have no reason to trust them. For Deepcool any mistakes made this early in the game could cost them in the long-term because once you’ve got a reputation for something it’s pretty hard to shake it off. That said Deepcool have already made a decent name for themselves with a selection of cooling products and their novel Steamcastle chassis that seems to have gone down well with consumers.
Packaging and Contents
The packaging Deepcool use is not only simple but also very compact, for a 1000W unit this surprises me a little.
Inside we find some screws, a power cable and a warranty card – very basic indeed.
