Not your father's PSU

Subject: Systems | December 5, 2005 - 06:12 PM |

DriverHeaven has a review of the Thermaltake PurePower PST 520W, which goes a little bit further than the usual PSU.  Not only is it a PSU, but it also has 2 "Power Stations" that connect to the PSU.  Read the full review to see exactly why that is, and what you can do with them.

After you're done, don't forget to check Lee's review of the Antec Neo HE 500 High Efficiency PSU.

'In 2005 another of Thermaltake's innovative products entered the retail scene, in the form of a

well thought out modular power supply. The Thermaltake PurePower PST 520W series was introduced,

and is totally compliant with published ATX 12v 2.0 version standards. The Power Station 520W PSU

consists of the 5.25 inch P.S.T. (Power Station) that fits into an available 5 1/4 inch drive bay,

and includes a mini-P.S.T. for connection of low power accessories such as case lights, fans, etc.

The only connections that are made to the parent power supply are an 8-pin power connector which

reaches from the power supply to the 5 1/4 inch Power Station, and dual connections are inherent

for the 6-pin PCI Express power connectors on the back of the PSU itself.'
