    Default Thermaltake To Intro Toughpower Grand RGB Gold, Smart Pro RGB Bronze Series PSUs

    Thermaltake will show two new PSU lines at CES: the already announced Toughpower Grand RGB Gold line, which we covered a couple of weeks ago, and the Smart Pro RGB Bronze. Each of those two lines features three members with capacities ranging from 650W to 850W. Both series are equipped with a patented 256 color Riing 140mm RGB fan, featuring five lighting modes (256 Color RGB Cycle, Solid Red, Green, Blue, White, and an LED Off mode), controlled by pressing the RGB Lighting button. There is also a built-in memory function, so you don't have to re-configure the desired fan lighting effect every time you power off the PSU. The Toughpower Grand RGB Gold Series carries a 10-year warranty, while the Smart Pro RGB Bronze Series comes with 7-year warranty coverage.

    The warranty is more than satisfactory for this price category. The fan uses an HDB bearing, so it will last quite long. The 750W and 850W members have six PCIe connectors, with the smallest member of the line equipped with four of those connectors. Unfortunately not even the strongest Smart Pro RGB model has two EPS connectors, which is a shame. The semi-passive operation is present in all units, and it can be deactivated through a button, should you want the fan to constantly spin. The MSRP of the Smart Pro RGB Bronze units are as follows:
    • TPG-0850F-R: $99.99
    • TPG-0750F-R: $89.99
    • TPG-0650F-R: $79.99

    The Gold models aren't actually new because there is already a JonnyGuru review: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...Story&reid=499

    Decent PSU with nice lighting for a fair price.

    That's indeed what the article said in the first sentence.

    80 bucks for a 650w bronze psu? No thanks. Sure it's RGB, but with more and more cases hiding the psu what's the point. Is it a silver/gold psu without the leds? Then when you turn the leds on it becomes a bronze?

    For people with cases that don't hide the PSU?

    "More and more" does not equal "all".

    It's a niche market, for sure. But not a non-existing one.

    A Spanish website said "80 euros" for Spain which, considering the market, is not that bad. But I think they just had in mind "80 dollars = 80 euros". If that's true so we have Seasonic X-650 at 50€ atfer rebate

    Nope. There are no Corsair PSUs with RGB lighting in progress.
