    Their current "non gamer" PSUs are already top notch, this will probably be a cash grab because marketing

    the color scheme is very nice, but i certainly fails at seeing the gamery things on a PSU.. i would install it even in a tower server jaja

    If its not GaN-based, there's really nothing to see. It's old, inefficient tech.

    Call me when there's 1000W GaN PSUs for under 250$. You'll buy one and it will last forever for any type of build you need.

    That name though... "High Current" just makes me think of PSU voltage ripple effect.

    Where is the new model of my 2x Antec HCP 1300w? The best is the "sli" connection to use 2 at the same time. Without the ugly adapter.

    Good PSU manufacturer - check.
    The color scheme matches Noctua - check.
    Minimalistic - check.
    Looks like a great product to me. :)

    Everybody and their mothers are naming stuff as "Gamer" tagged. From Chairs to PSU's. Must be good if there's a gamer tag on it? no not really.
     
    cryohellinc and Venix like this.

    Don't know who makes it, but if its so good/efficient, it should have made platinum.
    At least in that price range..
