The FSP Aurum PT 1000W is a very well built, high grade supply suited to power hungry multi GPU system builds. While competition in this sector is very aggressive, the FSP Aurum PT can hold its own against any other unit we have tested.
Aesthetically, the FSP Aurum PT is likely to split opinion. Some may find it rather mundane looking and there is no doubt FSP have went for a simple two tone colour scheme. That said, we feel it will fit in well with any system build without looking like an eyesore. The ‘Granite Touch’ finish deserves praise, as it is almost impossible to leave a fingerprint on the surface and it proved very resilient against accidental damage.
Noise levels of the FSP Aurum PT are particularly low, thanks to the adoption of an expensive, large Fluid Dynamic Bearing fan. These fans last a very long time, and it is likely to remain trouble free for the lifetime of the power supply itself.
Load regulation is quite tight, ripple suppression is excellent and the unit passed the cross loading test without a hiccup. FSP opted to incorporate high grade 105c Japanese capacitors inside, from the likes of Nippon Chemi Con and Rubycon. It is difficult to fault the selection of caps that FSP have integrated into this design.
Right now availability of the FSP Aurum PT 1000W is very limited in the United Kingdom, although FSP have assured us that this will change shortly. FSP have listed the price at €229,99 / US$239.99 – which in direct conversion today is around the £180 mark. It is likely the final price may be higher, once we factor in additional UK costs. Once we get confirmation we will update this page.
