The entire series use a dedicated single 12V rail with built-in PCI-E 6pin and PCI-E 6+2pin connectors for support of all high end graphic cards available on the market today.
With high quality 105°C Japanese made main capacitor, the TR2 Bronze series is built robust enough to satisfy even more demanding users, as such capacitors allow for a longer product life time, increased stability , better reliability and improved overclocking performance.
Using an innovative circuit board layout and high-tech components, the TR2 Bronze series is not only an industry leader in energy efficiency, reaching 88% efficiency under real-world load conditions, but furthermore also offers advanced product safety features. Built-in industrial grade protection circuitries protect the power supply from over current, over voltage, under voltage, over power as well as short circuitry. The over power protection (OPP) for example causes power the supply to shut down when the effective loading exceeds 110% to 130% of the maximum rated load.
