When the subject of power supplies comes up in forums, there is always one name mentioned: PC Power & Cooling. The general consensus amongst PC enthusiasts is that if you need the highest quality power supply, and money is not an object then there's no contest.
Back in 1986, the company introduced its Silencer 150 and Turbo-Cool 200 units, the industry's first ultra-quiet and high-performance power supplies. Other high-end products followed, the reviews were great, and the company continued to grow.
Today, demands for high-end power supplies are greater than ever. With the introduction of multi-gpu systems and some high-end processors consuming excessive power, consumers are starting to realise the importance of choosing a quality power supply to ensure trouble free operation of their machines.
Enter the PC Power & Cooling 1kilowatt power supply....
When I received the news that a huge box with "PC Power & Cooling" written down the side of it had arrived for me, I could hardly contain my excitement - and not without reason either, this power supply is quite often regarded as the "big daddy" of all power supplies!
Opening up the box, I was presented with an absolute monster of a power supply - this unit is seriously huge in comparison with other power supplies I've tested in the past. Also included in the box was the following items (images below):
- Turbo-Cool Manual
- Certified Test Report
- 24-pin to 20-pin ATX adapter
- Molex to P4-12v (4 pin) adapter
- 8-Pin EPS12v to P4-12v (4 pin) adapter.
- Power lead
- Case screws
- PCP&C Sticker
The power supply comes with a 5 year warranty, which is possibly the best warranty I've heard given for any kind of PC components. Obviously you will void the warranty if you use the power supply in other than the specified manner, so it maybe worth having a quick read of the manual before you go ahead and rip the unit open or do anything else silly.
Also included in the package is a "Powered by Turbo-Cool 1 Kilowatt" sticker, for those of us without windowed panels who still want to show off their purchase :)
