Riotoro 1200W Builder Edition PSU Review

Packaging

On the face of the box there is a photo of the PSU with the fan grille on display. On the left side we find the model number while on the right side the major features of the PSU are highlighted. The 80 PLUS Gold badge along with an icon showing the five year warranty are also depicted on the box’s front side.

On the box’s side we find Riotoro’s logo, the model number and a couple of bar code stickers.

At the rear side of the box, Riotoro provides some details about the PSU in six languages along with a brief description. You will also find here the 80 PLUS efficiency curve along with a list depicting the available cables and the power specifications table. There is a mention of the fan noise levels but apparently someone forgot to include the corresponding chart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A nice red box is hiding under the package’s sleeve.

Contents

The PSU is packed well into the box, since foam spacers totally surround it.

The only extra accessory you will find in the bundle is a (nice) pouch for storing the unused modular cables and the necessary fixing bolts. There are no zip ties or Velcro straps provided.

Exterior

The PSU’s dimensions are on the large side, while at its front side we see the typical honeycomb-style exhaust grille along with the AC receptacle and a small power switch.

The stickers on the sides are not that fancy, while as usual the power specs sticker is installed on the unit’s bottom side. Besides the power table it also depicts the serial number of the product along with some certification logos (CE and FCC).

The fully modular panel includes twelve sockets which is enough to use all of the provided cables and connectors at the same time. We are worried, though, about the single 12-pin socket that will host the cable that includes four 6+2 pin PCIe connectors, which can take huge stress if power hungry GPUs are fed through the cable. Normally no more than a pair of PCIe connectors should be fed through those 12-pin sockets. As it seems, though, there was no space for four of those sockets on the modular panel, so High Power had to do things this way.
