   I'm certain you all don't need me to tell you just how hot things are right now (at least in places where it's summer now) so inside just 2 weeks 3 friends of mine had their low-cost power supplies fail on them so as i type these lines they're probably looking to replace them with something better. Now as you all know technology hasn't changed that much in the PSU industry since the very first 80 Plus models made their appearance so what can manufacturers do when they can't change their design/configuration nor can they use different/higher quality components? Thermaltake seems to think that the next best step is to add new features so their latest Smart DPS G line of power supply units no only allows the end user to monitor their current status but it also gives you access the current and overall power consumption levels via a computer and/or android/iOS compatible handheld devices.


   The beginning of every myth and legend is about dreams and desire: the challenging, creative and combative features of Thermaltake Group create an exciting and fascinating user experience to share with everyone, while allowing users to enter a selfless state in terms of function and potential. Thermaltake Group's 3 main brands: Thermaltake, Tt eSPORTS and LUXA2 have been merchandising throughout the world, and have successfully established 6 business footholds in areas such as Europe, America, Oceania, Japan and China, with 95 regional distributors and over 4000 premium retailers. All product planning is orientated by observation of global PC peripheral market and understanding of consumer demands. Thermaltake creates direct contact opportunities with resellers and consumers by participating major global ICT exhibitions and trade shows every year, and develop innovative marketing strategies for the promotions of new products. Meanwhile, Thermaltake incorporates the composite marketing system by making branch offices and regional distributors both the distribution channel and technical support or service center to provide instant support; by maintaining close contact with end users, we manage to strengthen corporate competitiveness and create the momentum for the growth of accomplishments. With its outstanding wisdom and strength Thermaltake Group is recruiting creative talents to build a cultural brand for the enjoyment of entertainment, e-Sports, technology and lifestyle!


   The Smart DPS G 700W is an 80 Plus Bronze (also available in 80 Plus Gold at 650/750W) certified PSU that features a 32Bit microcontroller unit, single strong +12V rail rated at 54A (can reach up to 648W output), silent 120mm dual ball bearing fan, peak power output of up to 840W, semi-modular design, flat modular cables, Short Circuit Protection (SCP), Over Power Protection (OPP), high quality main Japanese capacitors and Active PFC. Still since this is one of the very first models to feature Thermaltake‚Äôs Smart Power Management system (SPM) our guess is that this will be its strong selling point and although this may seem as a marketing "gimmick" to some of you it can come very handy if not as a means to reduce your electrical bills then certainly as a way to monitor the status of your entire (almost) system. So let's check the brand new Smart DPS G 700W out and see just what you can expect from it not only in terms of performance but also when it comes to its very interesting SPM technology.
