   RGB LED lighting has taken the market by storm and the reason i say the entire market and not just the PC industry is because it has achieved exactly that. So today whether we're talking about PC hardware and peripherals or general home and even car lighting (for example check the guys over at Morimoto) RGB always comes up as the default choice and it actually makes sense since instead of just a single illumination color people can now have every single one they may desire (at any point). Personally i don't care much about RGB lighting but even i chose to install that all over my house as "mood" lights (although 90% of the time i have them on pure white). Aerocool just recently released their P7-850W Platinum Power Supply Unit part of their Project 7 line of RGB products which we've been testing for the past week.

   The Project 7 P7-850W is a fully-modular Power Supply Unit that features an 80 Plus Platinum efficiency certification, single powerful 70A +12V rail (can deliver up to 840W), high-quality Japanese capacitors, flat and flexible modular cables, 140mm RGB LED fan (a compatible mainboard header or Aerocool's P7-Hub is required to make use of this feature) and a wide range of electrical protections including OVP (Over Voltage Protection), UVP (Under Voltage Protection), OCP (Over Current Protection), OTP (Over Temperature Protection) and OPP (Over Power Protection). Also according to Aerocool the P7-850W offers almost inaudible operation since the 140mm FDB (fluid dynamic bearing) fan starts spinning only after 60% load and doesn't hit over 500RPM until 80%. This is not the first time we've seen a PSU behave in such a way but it's not something very widely used at least not yet so it's a good thing Aerocool decided to incorporate it in their new PSU line. Last but not least Aerocool covers the P7-850W with a 7 year limited warranty which is a clear indication that they truly believe in the quality of their brand new unit.
