    Arrow Thermaltake DPS-G Titanium 1250W Review

    It's a brand new year here in the test lab, and with it comes a brand new unit fresh on the scene. 80 Plus Titanium units are still pretty slow to hit the market, but I'm predicting we'll see more than a few of them this year as companies are able to get them into the market. Our first such unit comes from Thermaltake, and on the surface looks like it's going to be hard to beat. This is a 1250 watt monster featuring individually sleeved cables, software monitoring, and even a fan you can change the illumination color of at your whim. Let's find out if it can hang with the other big Titanium units out there. There's not a lot of competition for it, so it's got a chance.

    I honestly don't get the choice of colors on the sleeves. It's like going back a decade.

    The funny thing is that this PSU can't be found on Thermaltake's website !!!

    Looks like Jeremy has sources in higher levels inside Thermaltake thus he outperforms the Tt's website programmers!!

    Using those colors, they may as well have left them unsleeved and knocked $20 off the price

    Oh, come on mate!!!, again? !! a full point off for that ?
    I'll never understand what is the problem:
    So far i've changed more than 15 PSUs in my computers.
    I've changed Seasonic cables, EVGA cables, Corsair cables, and Thermaltake cables.
    Each cable ( the CPU one, since you mentioned this in your review), has 2 sides. On the one side, every cable writes CPU & on the other side it writes PSU !!!!
    How hard can it be for someone to plug the one side that writes PSU on the PSU's side, and the other side that writes CPU on the CPU socket!!!
    Every cable regardless their company writes the same thing !!!

    You'd be surprised. Many people can't even figure out 4 + 4-pin connector splits in the middle.
