Aerocool's New Project 7 PSUs Join P7 Cases And Coolers At Computex

In addition to its P7 families of cases and cooling solutions, Aerocool also revealed a new P7 PSU line at Computex, with capacities ranging from 550W to 850W. The OEM is Andyson and although these units are based on its Titanium platform, their efficiency is one level lower at 80 PLUS Platinum.

We suspect that the fully modular cables didn't allow for Titanium efficiency, since Andyson's N platform uses a semi-modular cabling design which has lower energy losses. In addition, the lack of a bridgeless design in the N platform doesn't leave much room for even slightly increased energy losses when the goal is Titanium efficiency. Nonetheless, Platinum efficiency will be easily achieved.

All P7 units will feature LED lighting to match the lighting effects of the rest P7 products. Obviously Aerocool hopes that you won't buy just one of its P7 products, but one from each family.

The external design of the P7 PSUs is pretty nice, and it's unique, making them easily distinguishable. Inside, only high quality components will be used, including Japanese caps, which increase reliability and also ensure high performance throughout most of a PSU's operational life. Caps age, especially electrolytic ones, and this significantly affects ripple filtering performance, among other aspects.

The following tables lists the most important technical specifications of the upcoming P7 PSU models.
