    Default Thermaltake Announces A Mainstream Smart RGB PSU Series

    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/the...ase,35073.html

    RGB lighting was previously limited to mid- or high-end products. That's starting to change, however, and Thermaltake embraced this trickle-down lighting philosophy with its new highly affordable PSU line. All of the units are equipped with a 256-color RGB fan hub featuring 15 lighting modes--Pulse Red / Green / Blue / Yellow / Purple / Light Blue / White, 256 Color RGB Cycle, Solid Red / Green / Blue / Yellow / Purple / Light Blue / White, and an LED Off mode.

    I understand the need to keep costs low on a unit like this; but making a group-regulated design in this day and age is nonsense. At least at this price point.

    But you are getting an RGB fan at least for $45 for the 500W one. Though, I am a little doubtful that thing would last 5 years under 24/7 use, but then again they probably know most people buying RGB fan PSUs that are cheap are just gamers going for flashy cheap stuff anyway and don't use a computer in that matter.

    Oh dear, oh dear...
    What have they done...
    Those Capacitors looks like ChengX...

    And it's 230VAC only (the PFC coil is a dead giveaway)...

    They're gonna have 230VAC and regular full range versions.

    The 500w is also a different design.

    I don't know why they used the picture from TR2 S for the 500W, but every unit in the Smart RGB line should be the same design from the same factory.

    To be fair, both designs are very similar with the same complaints / limitations. The 230vAC units also don't have any pictures of the internals shown for what it's worth.
