The AeroCool GT-1050SG 1050W looks very different to any other power supply we have reviewed before. Initially I wasn’t that impressed with the design but it did grow on me. The power supply measures 150mm x 86mm x 180 mm (WxHxD).
The AeroCool GT-1050SG 1050W has a large fan in place, underneath the black grill. The GT badge in the middle really does look great. Both white side panels have ‘GT AeroCool Design’ embossed into the material.
This white material is a durable plastic that is both very tough and resilient to scratches and fingerprints. The black area is metal.
One side of the AeroCool GT-1050SG is vented to help improve air flow. There is a power switch and socket at one side.
The other side of the power supply is the modular connector bay. The company have made the sticker read from both mounting positions as can be seen from the image above. The connectors are colour coordinated – with the PCI-e connectors in red and peripheral connectors in black. The Molex and SATA connectors are shared between all the cables.
As mentioned earlier, it would have been better if all the PCI E cables were modular, instead of hard wiring four 6+2 pin PCIE connectors. There is plenty of space here for more connectors.
The GT-1050SG is split into +12V1 and +12V2 which are rated at 60A each. The company claim the AeroCool GT-1050SG can deliver 1020W across the +12V output.
