AeroCool GT-1050SG 1050W Power Supply Review

Rating: 8.0.

Another new year – and a raft of new hardware to analyse! Today are are looking at a new, high grade power supply from AeroCool. The GT-1050SG is a modular design which has achieved 80 Plus Gold Certification. The unit is very attractively designed and we will find out if the performance characteristics can match the eye catching appearance.

  • Hackin

    Good review. bit high for what I need, but good to see some slightly cheaper alternatives. thats about the same price as the latest high end 750W from Corsair.

  • Janaa

    Not available over here, but yeah I agree, seems like a high value unit. I dont mind much about the minor issues you mentioned. Any ideas of availability in Slovania/Slovakia?

  • Xein

    Better than their last one thats for sure!

    Are ribbon flat cables better than the traditiona round ones? I hate the ribbon cables they look crap.

  • Lance

    I love the look of this, would look great with my new snow case. Do they make any others in like 750W capacities?

  • Glen

    I think they do 500W up to 1050W all in the same styling, 80+ bronze too for people on a tighter budget…
