Taiwan based manufacturer Aerocool is announcing the new addition to its product portfolio. Brand new GT series aims for ambitious gamers and enthusiasts, coming with total of eight different models starting with 500 Watts and ending with 1.050 Watts. The acronym “GT” is coming from the Italian words „Gran Turismo“, which stand for high-performance luxurious racing cars, built for long distance racing. Aerocool engineers took the challenge seriously both for designing the exterior as well as the interior.
New GT Series is split in two different model-ranges where one is certified with 80PLUS Bronze and the other with 80 PLUS Gold! Hence assures an efficiency of at least 85% respectively 90%. Aerocool achieved this by using two VRM modules, which are using one choke contrary to commonly used designs. This allows the two 12 Volts rails to have a maximum voltage deviation of only 3%, which is lower compared to the required 5% by Intel’s® specifications. Aerocool aims to deliver high efficiency and stability especially during long load sessions with its new GT PSU Series.
Aerocool GT power supplies exterior catches attention due to the fresh and stylish design. Entry-level models with 80PLUS Bronze specification are using black and red color matching. High-end models with 80PLUS Gold specification can be identified by the black and white color finish. In addition, the whole chassis was refined by round shape alongside with a mesh-grid to deliver an outstanding design far from standardon-market power supply units.
All GT PSUs are equipped with a white 13,9 centimeter fan to further unify the design. Thanks to the big size of the built-in fan and the intelligent fan controller, the GT power supply units are ableto operate very silently at all time and adjust fan speed according to the actual load. MTBF of the Aerocool GT power supply units is stated with 120.000 hours to assure long and uninterrupted gaming sessions.
To further comply with every users requirement, GT PSU series are available as a standard version with attached connection cables as well as a smart modular cable version for more convenient cable management inside the PC chassis. Versions with the smart modular cables can be identified by the letter “S” in the model name. In addition all GT PSU support both the ATX12V 2.3 as well as the EPS12V 2.92 standards and offer enough connectors for the required PC components. Furthermore SLI and CrossFireX are supported, allowing enthusiasts and gamers to build even more powerful systems. In the case of the smart modular cables version (“S” models) black colored flat cables are being used, allowing easier cable management. Other models are utilizing cables covered with mesh sleeves to assure a better airflow inside the chassis.
Another highlight is the low power consumption in standby mode thanks to the compliance to ErP Direction 2013. To ensure safe operation,all Aerocool GT power supply units are supporting the Over Current(OCP), Over Voltage(OVP), Over Power(OPP), Over Temperature(OTP), Under Voltage(UVP), Short-Circuit (SCP) and Surge/Inrush current protections(SIP) protections.
Aerocool GT PSU series is divided into three groups where the GT-500 and GT-700 power supply units come with attached cables, red finish as well as 80PLUS Bronze specification. Second group includes the GT-500S, GT-700S and GT-1050S power supply units with smart modular cables, 80PLUS Bronze and red color. Last group is made of the high-end models GT-500SG, GT-700SG and GT-1050SG supporting smart modular cables, 80PLUS Gold as well as white color finish. All models are available on the European market as of today for the following MSRPs:
GT 500W: 58,00 EUR
GT 700W: 75,75 EUR
