       Unique Patented Design

  • System wattage consumption meter Real-time digital LED display in a spare 5.25" drive bay.
  • 480 Watts output minimum power wattage requirement for a Nvidia Geforce 6800 system
  • Dual high speed highly reliable TurboFantm to cool the entire system:
Built-in temperature sensor with Automatic Fan Speed control is specially tuned to a special "turbo mode" where fan speed starts from 800 RPM and quickly warms up to 4000 RPM to develop a strong airflow inside the case and existing out of the rear of PW-480-102DF power supply.  Upon detection of further increase in internal temperature, the TurboFantm can spin even faster to a maximum top speed of 5000 RPM.

The advantage of having system power consumption at one glance:
  1. This meter takes out the fear of overloading your power supply when you are in need of installing additional devices to your system.    For example, if the system power consumption is shown to be no more than 150w, then you know there is 330w of reserve power to accomodate additional video cards or drives.  
  2. And if the system isn't doing well, you can focus your debug effort somewhere else other than the power supply wattage sufficiency issue.
