Thermaltake's New 'Turbo Charge' PSU and CPU Cooler

Thermaltake had a couple of new things on display at Computex. The first being a new power supply called Evo Blue 2.0 that has a "Turbo Charge" feature that will push the fan to full speed to give you an extra 50W.

The PSU fan itself has an LED, which will run in blue during normal conditions, but will turn when that turbo button is pushed. This 80 Plus Gold unit has a single rail +12 V, active PFC, Japanese capacitors and solid capacitors for durable operation under high temperature. It also has a "FanDelayCool" technology to allow its 14 cm fan to operate for 15-30 seconds after shut down to ensure all components cool down. It will come in 650, 750 and 850 W modens in August at $139, $149, and $179, respectively.

For direct CPU cooling, Thermaltake has the Big Typ Revo air cooler. It has a top-down blowing design structure, which will direct airflow to cool both the CPU and motherboard surrounding components. There are five 6 mm heat-pipes that channel heat to the aluminum fins, cooled by the single 12cm fan at 800 to 1,800 RPM. It is compatible with Intel Socket LGA 2011, 1366, 1155, 1156, 775, and AMD Socket FM1, AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2.
