Asus announces ROG Thor PSU Lineup

https://www.techpowerup.com/247677/asus-announces-the-premium-rog-thor-psu-lineup


I think the big note is the 1200w unit only being 250USD/EUR on price. Seems oddly "cheap" given the feature set.

Monitors and cases generally have a foam insert on the inside of the box to absorb heavy impacts as well as extra protective cardboard. That's why they ship them like that.

The Cobra Power unit is the better of the two, and it's still pretty awful. Paul at HardOCP did a review of the 500 (https://www.hardocp.com/article/2014/03/18/raidmax_cobra_power_500w_supply_review)...

Neither is DHL, but in my area at least, UPS and FedEx are god awful while the local postal office actually has a clue about what they're doing.

Always get tracking and insurance on your package. I generally send through USPS as FedEx and UPS can be more of a pain than those two when it comes to disputes.

If you actually check the reviews, most of them are "I got it, plugged it in, and it worked."

To be fair, a number of those reviews point to a problem within years 1-3. Obviously an early onset failure, but there is not telling what the actual failure was.

Unless you need something right now, I wouldn't buy another unit. With that said, the Prime Ultra Titanium isn't really good value.
