Liquid cooled power supplies are definitely few and far between. Changing this, FSP has just announced the release of the Hydro PTM+ 850W power supply which is designed to be cooled and work with a custom loop liquid cooling solution. The PSU uses both an integrated fan which is off by default until the PSU load reaches 425W. Using the integrated Bitspower liquid cooling systems allows the Hydro PTM+ 850W to deliver up to 1000W in power when the system demands it.
The new PSU carries an 80+ Platinum efficiency rating meaning that you can expect at least a 92% in efficiency regardless of load. In all other circumstances, the intelligent fan will keep performance great, and noise low. Its unique cooling solution and advanced design (using DC-DC modules) allow for an industry-leading 92% efficiency. The liquid cooling connectors use G1/4” / 12mm connectors for both and soft tubing.
High-grade components and DC-DC design with 80 Plus Platinum rating
Internally, the Hydro PTM+ 850W is made of only the best components such as 100% Japanese made capacitors for reliable power and have a prolonged lifespan. The design uses a single 12V rail with a DC-DC module for maximum efficiency and stability. This allows for the extremely high 92% efficiency rating and 80 PLUS ® Platinum certification. Over-current, over-voltage, and over-temperature protection provide safety and stability. While rated at 850W, with liquid-cooling enabled, the Hydro PTM+ 850W is able to deliver up to 1000W.
Bitspower integrated liquid cooling
The Hydro PTM+ 850W utilizes an advanced liquid cooling solution developed by Bitspower and integrated into the PSU. This unique solution is aimed at those that want to get the most performance and best look out of their system. It allows optimal cooling whether the liquid-cooling system is engaged or not. Below a load of 425W, no additional cooling is necessary, from 425 to 850W a smart fan solution is engaged for low noise and optimal performance. Finally, when the liquid cooling solution is connected and engaged, performance is increased up to 1000W, making the PSU the most efficient 1 Kilowatt PSU available.
Pricing and Availability: The FSP Hydro PTM+ 850W is now available at a MSRP of $399 USD. More information can be found over at FSP’s product page.
