Tuniq Miniplant 950watt Power Supply - Final Thoughts

We know Tuniq can produce an excellent performing product when it comes to heatsinks; can they do the same with PSUs?

Final Thoughts

 

Most modern power supplies have begun marketing their "80+" power efficiency rating, and the Miniplant is no exception. It also has Active PFC, is SLI Ready and comes with a pretty standard 3-year warranty. While none of these things make this unit stand apart from the crowd, the price does. This Tuniq model comes in at the bottom end of the price range for a power supply with these features. Many in this category run at $300US or more, but you can pick up this one for about $250. Not too shabby for a PSU that has this much power and a very nice feature set.

 

For this low-end price you also get more power than just about any other power supply on the market. All voltage rails were putting out over their stated specifications and the potential for overclockers is excellent. Those few extra tenths of a volt can go some distance, particularly on the 3.3v rail with regards to the memory.

 

This power supply is also very quiet. At idle you won't hear it at all and at load it is still toward the quieter end of the noise category. Overall we have a very nice power supply that will make a nice addition to those looking for that extra kick in their system. While there are more powerful models available, you will be hard pressed to find a better value for your upgrading dollars if you are in the market for a performance level power supply.
