ASUS Republic of Gamers announces ROG Thor Series Power Supplies

ASUS ROG have launched the Thor 1200W Platinum and Thor 850W Platinum power supply units. 

The ROG Thor 1200W Platinum features custom ROG heatsinks that boast 2X more surface area than standard designs, and the ROG Thor 850W is similarly equipped. Having larger heatsinks and other premium components means cooler operation under load, an extended lifespan for key components, and silent operation long after standard designs spin up their fans, according to ASUS.

The ROG Thor series PSUs are equipped with a patented 135mm Wing-blade fan design that can also be found on some high-end ASUS graphics cards. The design offers increased static pressure to cool components efficiently at lower RPMs than a traditional fan, and is certified IP5X dust-resistant. By engaging the rear-mounted 0dB switch, the Wing-blade fan can stop completely when temperatures are low.

ROG Thor features an integrated OLED Power Display that shows overall system power draw in real-time. 

The PSUs have addressable RGB LEDs that light up the ROG logo on the front can be controlled through a compatible ASUS motherboard and Aura Sync software. Premium sleeved cables and cable combs are included in the box so system builders can immediately create a customised build.

The ROG Thor 1200W Platinum and ROG Thor 850W Platinum will be available in Australia from October 2018 for $549.00 and $349.00 respectively.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
