    Arrow Thermaltake Smart Pro RGB 850W Bronze Review

    Let's look at another Thermaltake unit today. One that proves this company is going all-in with the RGB craze, as we find ourselves confronted by an 850 watt 80 Plus Bronze unit aimed at bargain shoppers that somehow still has an RGB fan in it. We need to ask ourselves one question, here: did Thermaltake add the RGB fan to something worth buying, or is this unit's performance going to be compromised in some way? That's what we're here for.

    I like the Riing RGB fan.

    Aren't you a tiny little overgrown, Philip, to still like such bling things?

    I'm not a fan, but I'd take it over Corsair CX850M. Can't say about EVGA B3 yet.

    I gave it 1 Amp more at 3.3V under full load and 5C higher ambient, and load regulation on this rail went through the roof. On the contrary ripple suppression is very good overall.

    I have it right now on the test bench.

    Meh. Here the 650W unit touches every 500-550W "premium Gold" psu available. RMx, G2, G3... 650W Smart Pro Gamer Super Nova RGB costs the same as 550 G3 at the same store, for example. I'm not a fan either and if so I would be more like a sleeve fan.

    I thought you'd rather be a double ball fan.
