NorthQ Giant Reactor 1kw ATX PSU

One of the most impressive features of the NorthQ Giant Reactor has to be its ability to pack 1000w in a standard sized ATX casing. This is great news for those of us with limited space inside our cases, but still want to upgrade to the latest graphics cards.
NorthQ have decided to keep things plain and simple in the looks department, opting for a matt black painted finish. It would have been nice to see some originality from NorthQ, especially as this is marketed as a 'Gamer PSU' and the "Giant Reactor" name conjurs up images of glowing green radioactive sludge, but I can see NorthQ's reasoning behind "playing it safe".
The back of the unit is vented with a honeycomb mesh grill complete with an LED status indicator that changes from red to green when the PSU is powered on. You may also notice that there is no 110/240v switch present. This is because the Giant Reactor, like many other modern PSU's is able to auto-detect the input voltage.
