It seems that many companies have ‘jumped upon the PSU wagon’ in recent years with Corsair, Sapphire and XFX all having dipped their toes into the market with various levels of success. Recently Tul Corporation, or ‘Powercolor’ as they are more commonly known announced their intentions to enter this sector with a new range of Extreme 1000W, 750W and Gaming 600W and 500W units, targeting both mid range and high end sectors.
While the Gaming 600W and 500W units are 80 Plus certified today we are going to be taking a look at the highest end model they have released, The Extreme 1000W PSU which is 80 Plus Bronze certified, offering over 85% power efficiency.
The Extreme Series 1000W PSU is a modular design and is cooled by a single 140MM double bearing fan to keep noise to a minimum. These PSU’s have 12V quad rails and four 8 pin PEG connectors to allow users to power high end SLI and Crossfire configurations.
