    I thought this is the first CWT GPR Aris has tested, until I remembered the RGB version 6 months ago: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/t...gb-850-w-gold/
    Toughpower GF1 850W versus Toughpower GF1 ARGB 850W.

    Besides the RGB they both have some different parts, though - notably different APFC FETs, boost diode and 12V rectifiers, either by design or QVL.

    Inductive parts of the LLC resonant converter.

    I can't see the picture, but I guess you referred to the two transformers which drive the main switchers. It provides isolation between half/full bridge transistors' gates (on primary side) and CM6901 chip (on secondary side).
