Toughpower Grand RGB 650W Gold Full Modular
Well, the PSU has arrived and yes, it has RGB lighting! Don't worry though, it was the last factor used in determining this selection. Well, maybe not dead last, but it was close. The final appearance of the "Cicada Mind" build will feature plenty of RGB lighting to ensure it will be aesthetically pleasing, however, we are building a rig to meet certain demands. We specifically chose our components according to our needs, and this power supply unit is no exception! Let's review some specs shall we?
This design has several features built in for the purpose of noise reduction. Features such as the Anti-Vibration Mounting System and Smart Zero Fan.
Smart Zero Fan
Operates when the power supply workload is over 20%.
The fan can be set to always run with a switch located on the back.
Japanese capacitors are literally the best in the industry. It may not be an important feature to others, but it was pretty high on our checklist. Toughpower Grand RGB 650W Gold is equipped with a powerful single +12V rail, eliminating the limitations by voltage distributions, delivering the power your CPU and VGA demand in any situations. Besides, with DC to DC design, the unit optimizes maximum energy harvest for computer systems, providing the best compatibility, conversion efficiency and stable voltage output.
This was another selling point for us. We honestly can't stand having unnecessary cables hanging off of the back of our PSU. Granted, it is stuffed in the case and out of view. However, just know they're in there being completely useless really grinds our gears! The best part is that these cables are low profile, which makes them incredibly space efficient.
80 Plus Gold Rating
This ensures an efficient power consumption and usage to allow for maximum performance.
Let's not kid ourselves, all of those features are great, but RGB makes the world go 'round! We honestly had no idea that any company actually made an RGB PSU, so imagine our delighted surprise when we stumbled upon this bad boy! It hit every check on our list, and it's by a reputable company. We couldn't be any happier with this purchase and can't wait to throw this baby in our build and see it in all it's glory for the first time!
