Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The new PC Power & Cooling Turbo-Cool 1200W power supply was designed for industry professionals who demand the very best. It features a unique new design that places the emphasis on a rock-solid +12V core with super clean outputs. This unit can deliver up to 90A (1,080W) of +12V continuous power at up to 50°C operating temperature. It comes with enough connectors to power a small house, including four motherboard, six PCI-E, and 15 drive connectors.
The Turbo-Cool 1200W power supply exhibits excellent build quality and is backed by PC Power & Cooling’s new 7-year Turbo-Cool warranty and legendary support. The only down-side I could find is a slightly lower than normal efficiency at low power levels and the Turbo-Cool 1200W PSU is far from quiet. However, neither of these last two points should be of much concern to someone who wants (and will use) a true 1200W power supply. While the target audience may be R&D labs of major industrial OEMs, medical applications, high-end CAD workstations, movie studio SFX rigs, etc., the Turbo-Cool 1200W will be readily available to radical enthusiasts and max power users through normal retail channels.
The Turbo-Cool 1200W power supply will be available starting this week directly from PC Power & Cooling for $499.99 USD and should be available in the near future from many of your favorite retailers.
