    Default Phanteks Announces the PowerCombo - Power Your Rig with 2 PSUs

    Phanteks today announces the release of their patented Power Combo. The Power Combo is design to maximize your power output by allowing you to connect two power supplies. The Power Combo will be a true plug and play that requires no splicing and cutting of the wires. The Power Combo is design to be safe and secure. The Power Combo features a redundant power supply architecture concept, this prevents the system from shutting down when one power supply fails. This ensures that all your vital information and data will not be interrupted or lost.

    The Power Combo can run high end systems that requires more power output by combining 2x top tier PSUs. The Power Combo is fully compatible to Mini ITX, mATX, ATX, and E-ATX motherboards. The Power Combo features a unique soft start circuit that limits the inrush current to help improve stability and reduce transient voltage drops. The Power Combo will help share the load current of the two power supply and improve the power efficiency. The Power Combo is cost efficient and provides maximum power and efficiency.



    Available from April 2016, The Power Combo will be priced at €39.90.

    (*or they only sell the combo platform? )
    EDIT: I just saw from their site that they only sell the power splitter and not PSUs, so my comment was irrelevant / invalid

    According to them this PowerCombo creates more safety and security, but I think they just created an extra point of failure.

    It's not that uncommon to see two ATX PSUs in contemporary enthusiast-grade rigs, so the tool is welcome.
    Best, Luca

    Only time I've seen two PSUs actually REQUIRED is for LN2 overclocking.... and those guys know what they're doing enough to not buy something like this.

    It wouldn't be bad if Phanteks finally motivated themselves enough to launch their own PSUs. They tried in 2013, 2014, and 2015 with units based on Sirfa's HPA, HPL and HPJ platforms, but the actual launch never happened. :E

    True. But I would expect a phanteks psu to look very good. Like their CPU coolers. Their CPU coolers deliver almost nhd15 performance and actually look good.

    Exactly. I initially thought this was for people that need a lot of power, but if their intention is redundancy, they fail because my drives no longer have power and the OS immediately locks up.
