fsp aurum pt 1200wa

   Recent storms in the town where i live (not of a very large scale but just enough to break trees and move cars) have not only caused damage to civilian property such as houses and cars but they have also damaged the local electricity grid which as a result has rendered many electrical and electronic devices inoperable. Now normally i don't care about those things since I’ve taken steps to secure everything at my place even during such incidents but a friend of mine did call the other day asking if i had a new PSU which i could give him because his old 550W didn't make it through the night (this could had been avoided of course had he unplugged his PC from the power outlet during the storm). This is only one of the reasons as to why a quality PSU is always a good investment (especially if your system is considered good) and although this might not had made a difference during the storm still i do believe that it would have a much better chance of making it through without issue. Regardless todays review is about one of the latest and best power supply models to hit the market the Aurum PT 1200W by FSP (Fortron Group).

   The Aurum PT 1200W by FSP (also available in 850W and 1000W) is a fully modular 80PLUS Platinum certified power supply unit (over 92% efficiency) that features a powerful single 12V+ rail capable of using its entire output of 1200W (with 100A), active PFC, "E-Sync" Remote-Sensing technology, Japanese made capacitors, 8 PCI-E 6+2 pin power connectors, 13 SATA connectors, 135mm fluid dynamic bearing fan and a full range of industrial grade protections such as the over current protection (OCP), over voltage protection (OVP), under voltage protection (UVP), short circuit protection (SCP), over power protection (OPP) and over temperature protection (OTP). FSP also covers the entire Aurum PT line with a 7 year warranty (one of the longest we've seen in the industry) and an remarkable 5 million USD in product insurance (in case your system burns out while plugged into the Aurum PT) but what really stands-out is their E-Sync Remote-Sensing technology for which we were unable to find much information on even at the conclusion of this review. Still what matters is whether or not it works so let’s see what the brand new Aurum PT 1200W by FSP can do.
