PC Power & Cooling Turbo-Cool 1KW-SR - If PC Power & Cooling has anything, it has a great reputation for making awesome computer power supplies. Today we weigh in on the self-proclaimed "Biggest, Baddest Power Supply Period." Is their 1KW that big, and that bad, and what about value? [H]ard|OCP attempts to find out.
When the PC Power & Cooling Turbo-Cool 1KW-SR was launched it may indeed have been the “biggest, baddest power supply – period,” but while the king was looking down the jester stole his thorny crown. This isn't to say the unit performs badly as the Turbo-Cool does perform well, but what it does mean is that the 1KW-SR fails to meet the expectations instilled by PC Power & Cooling’s marketing, its own labeling, and the performance of other units currently on the market.
I'm going to have to find out whether it was Paul or Kyle that decided to quote American Pie in the review because now I have the damn song stuck in my head and I feel the need to beat one of them over the skull with a power supply.
