ThermalTake unveils 450W and 650W VGA PSU

Normal computer systems don't even consume close to 450W but ThermalTake likes it bigger and better and just unveiled two new VGA power supply units; one of them provides up to 450W to your graphics cards and the other one goes up to 650W.
Completely independent from the main Power Supply Unit, Power Express is designed to have its dedicated AC power input; thus bypassing the need to upgrade the current power supply in order to meet the power requirement of your extra graphic cards. Both Power Express 650W and 450W are built with two 6-pin PCI Express and two 8-pin PCI Express connector supporting even the most demanding graphic cards configurations available today. Dual 12V rails, each with maximum output of 30A, provides uninterrupted and dedicated power for each connected graphic cards. To further ensure maximum stability and compatibility when combining with any ATX12V main power supply, an extra 24-pin adapter has been included to ensure both the main power supply unit and the extra Power Express can be switched on at the exact same time.

Besides the careful stability and compatibility concerns, the new Power Express has also been designed for convenient installation on the standard 5.25” drive bays without the need of a proprietary chassis. SCP (Short-Circuit Protection), OVP (Over-Voltage Protection) and OCP (Over-Current Protection) power protection features are all standard to ensure stability and reliability.


Cool? Yeah, if you neglect the fact that this thing blows hot air into your case. Is this worth your money? We have our doubts..
