PC Power & Cooling 1kw Turbo-Cool TC1KW PSU



On a power supply with 1kw of power, you'd expect it to have enough connectors to take advantage of it. I'm pleased to say that you won't be disappointed. The Turbo-Cool has enough connectors for almost any kind of setup, including a multiple drive RAID setup.

I was slightly amused by the way that the cables were bundled together with an elastic band. A functional method i guess, and it kind of fits in with the simplistic theme of the rest of the packaging.

The cables are all sleved in black nylon mesh with the ends finished off with black heatshrink. The sleeving job is very professional, but yet again quite primitive with the heatshrink being held in place by clear cable ties. In my opinion PCP&C would have been better to place the heatshrink over the cable ties in a similar way seen on other power supplies. This is just a minor gripe and would only really benefit in makes things look tidier.

Another minor cosmetic gripe is the use of White ATX/EPS12v connectors. In my opinion it would have looked much better if they had opted to use Black plastic on all of the connectors - including the molex's.

PCP&C have adopted the latest technology (24-Pin ATX and EPS12v) for their connectors, but have also provided backward compatability for older systems by means of plug-in adapter cables, which provide 20-Pin ATX and 4-Pin PC12v connectors for older motherboards.

With 8 Molex and 6 SATA connectors, the Turbo-Cool actually holds the records for the most connectors on any power supply we've tested here at OC3D so far.

The only thing that i found slightly strange was the fact that the Turbo-Cool only has one floppy disk power cable. Most power supplies provide two at least, which is often required when boards like the DFI NF4 make use of a floppy connector to power certain parts of the board.
