Tagan Turbojet 1100w Quad SLI PSU

Connectors

So we've got 1.1kw of power on tap, but do we have enough connectors to utilize it? The short answer would be YES! Let's take a look..

Tagan Turbojet Cables Tagan Turbojet Cables

The bundle of cables included with the Tagan Turbojet is simply huge, and by far the bulkiest collection of cables I've ever seen reviewing power supplies here at OC3D.

All cables are sleeved up to the first connector for aesthetics and optimal airflow. Interestingly, all cables also feature twisted wires, which not only keeps things looking more tidy, but according to Tagan also helps to reduce EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference).

You will also notice that some of the cables providing power to some of the more sensitive components in your PC (Graphics cards, Motherboard..) feature fully RFI/EMI shielded cables. This makes them far more attractive than standard sleeved cables, but does mean that they are slightly harder to route around tight corners in your case.

Tagan Turbojet ATX

Tagan Turbojet EPS12v Tagan Turbojet P412v

The Turbojet comes with two separate cables for ATX12v and EPS12v motherboard connections, which gives the unit full compatibility with server & high-end desktop motherboards as well as backwards compatibility with older boards.

In a similar fashion, the ATX connector can be converted from 24-pin down to 20-pin for compatibility with older motherboards by simply uncoupling the additional 4 pins at the end of the ATX block.

Tagan Turbojet HDD

As I mentioned earlier in the review, the Tagan Turbojet 1100w is Quad-SLI certified, and thus has 4x PCI-E connectors. To ensure that the load is distributed evenly between the rails in the PSU, Tagan have labelled each one of the PCI-E connectors with a number corresponding to what graphics card the cable should be connected to.

The Turbojet also has a shielded molex connector, which can be used to power either a hard disk or older PCI-E/AGP graphics card that requires dedicated power.

Tagan Turbojet SATA-Molex Tagan Turbojet Molex-Floppy

As the usage of floppy disk drives is slowly declining, Tagan have decided to make the usage of floppy disk power connectors optional by supplying them on a separate Molex-to-Floppy extension cable. In my opinion this is a great idea, as it cuts down on the number of unused cables you need to hide away inside your case.

The observant among us may have noticed a distinct lack of molex connectors in the images above. This is because Tagan opted to make the Turbojet series primarily SATA based (this is the way forwards after all!). However, for those of us who require more than the included 3 molex connectors, you will find 4x SATA-to-Molex connectors in the accessories box.

"With power consumption of graphics cards on the rise, more and more PSU manufacturers are releasing 1000w+ units. Today we take a look at Tagans latest model, the Turbojet 1.1kw."

Beastly PSU. I freakin LOVE topower shielding/sleeving. It's the sickest looking thing ever. Those round heatsinks are sick, too.
