Gigabyte Odin GT 800W PSU reviewed

Posted on Friday, July 27 2007 @ 11:25:04 CEST by


AnandTech has taken a look at Gigabyte's 800W Odin GT power supply. One of the most unique features of this power supply is that it comes with a very detailed software application that allows you to check and regulate voltages and fan speeds. The software also shows the power consumption, temperatures and it's even possible to see details of the actual voltage distribution and the power drawn from each rail of your power supply. Definitely a very neat feature.
Gigabyte has made a clear statement with the Odin series and we hope that there will be more in the future. The idea of providing software to control and monitor the power supply is very good and the results are generally worthwhile. The software itself needs to get a little tweaking here or there but already operates well at this point. The results shown sometimes don't match reality, in some cases they're worse than in others, but for the most part they are not too far off. The fan speed is very accurate though and also the shown voltage comes close to actual numbers. If the power output and amperage readings can be corrected, and hopefully reduce CPU and memory requirements a bit, the software would be about perfect.
