A meet and greet with the ODIN PLUS
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at a high resolution and then cropped and scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D 12 MegaPixel.
So then, here we have the packaging so you know what to look for in the stores. The PSU inside is packaged nicely and protected in carton. The PSU is delivered with all the basics like cabling though we missed manual.
After unpacking, not a dent, scratch or even fingerprint smudge was on there. Matt finish, nice black theme. What's not to like really? Also fairly hard to understand; that's a standard size ATX PSU ... yet it can push up-to 700 Watts. Very convenient as you can easily locate the PSU in pretty much any size ATX compatible PC chassis.
There is only one top fan really, 120mm'ish with blue LED light, ball-bearing. Due to it's size and positioning, the PSU will be quite silent. Not at all bad, you can hear it silently. There's a pretty nice and optimal airflow throughout the PSU.
The PSU is clearly stickered with it's specifications, and sure .. SLI certification. The PSU has a standard ATX design, meaning it'll fit in any chassis, it's dimensions are: 5.9 x 3.4 x 7.1 (W x H x D)
We test and review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3x OC edition. The graphics card comes witha factory overclock and the new WindForce 3X 2 Slot 450W fan sink with Triangle Cool fans, as they like to cool it. That would be three silent 80mm fans. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost OC WindForce 2X review
In this article we review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost OC WindForce 2X with that OC for a factory tweak and the Windforce indicating a silent yet powerful two fan cooling solution. The product is customized with a new PCB, cooling and a few tweaks, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core base-clock slightly overclocked. An tasty product at an interesting price in the lower segment of the mainstream market.
