Once all is said and done, the GIGABYTE ODIN Pro 1200 has the making to be an exceptional power supply. It has more power than nearly any of its competitors and with a 99A rating on the 12v rail subsystem, peltier cooling or anything else you have in mind should be a piece of cake. It comes with a modular design and has enough cabling to handle just about anything right out of the box without having to resort to splitters or daisy-chaining.
Performance testing showed it to be more than capable of handling an enthusiast platform with power to spare. While a small reduction in voltage was noted during load tests, this is not unexpected. The PSU has huge potential and is ready to handle the challenges you throw at it.
Cooling has also been a factor that looks to have been considered a great deal. While 140mm fans are becoming a regular feature, full heatsinks on the internal components is not. This attention to detail shows that the folks at GIGABYTE are serious about their power, and they want to make certain that your unit will continue to provide quality power for as long as you need it.
I was a little disappointed in the wiring harness coming from the housing, however, since it may lead to trouble in the future. Something as simple as a plastic grommet would fix this issue, but it does not come on this model of power supply. Odds are good that you will never have a problem with it, but the chance is still present so it bears mentioning.
Pricing is spotty at this point in time since it is just now beginning to show itself in the US marketplace. I have found Philippine sources that are selling this unit for about US$375 and American online retailers are just starting to show up with prices ranging upward from about US$325. This price point is solidly in the mix for comparable products, but I'll be surprised if you can find another with as hefty a 12v rail as this one has.
As far as features are concerned, the ODIN Pro 1200 lists 80%+ Efficiency, Active PFC, Japanese manufactured capacitors, Support for SLI-Quad and over-voltage protection. All in all we have a very solid contender for your upgrading dollars.
