Cons

  • Expensive

Thanks to Thermaltake and their release of the Toughpower PF1 ARGB Power Supply, all your PC components can now have RGB lighting. With 16.8 million colours to choose from, you can definitely match the colour of this RGB power supply to that of the other components.

Having said that, the RGB lighting of this amazing power supply can be controlled by ASUS Aura Sync, MSI Mystic Light Sync and also Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion 2.0!

Product Images

As can be seen from the images above, this RGB power supply has two buttons and two switches at the back. The two buttons are responsible for controlling the RGB lighting; one for the mode and one for the color. One of the switches is used to turn the power supply on and off, while the other switch is for the Smart Zero Fan feature.

The Smart Zero Fan feature ensures that the power supply produces zero noise when the fan operates below approximately 10% work load. With the Smart Zero Fan switched on, the fan will only operate when the power supply’s work load is greater than 10%. With the Smart Zero Fan switched off, the fan will constantly spin. You won’t find this feature in a lot of other power supplies!
