Introduction

 

Today we are taking a look at our second unit from Sentey. Most of our readers aren't going to know who they are since the company is relatively small, and they are making a name for themselves as they go along. Sentey is a company whose headquarters resides in Florida with an operations center in California and manufacturing in China. The company is also expanding distribution centers in Latin America and is poised to make quite a name for itself. Currently the company offers a wide selection of computer cases, coolers, video cards and power supplies.

 

The unit that we have in question today is the upcoming LTP1000-SM. It is a 1000W single rail unit rated for 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency. Beyond that, it offers one heck of a warranty at seven years. That doesn't mean too much if it can't handle the heat, so let's start looking at how the power supply stacks up on paper, then move into the testing.

 

 

Specifications, Availability and Pricing

Most of the power for the Sentey LTP1000-SM is delivered via the single 12V rail, rated for 83A or 996W. Both minor rails are rated for 20A each and have a combined maximum output of 100W. The 5VSB rail is rated for 2.5A or 12.5W which is half a watt lower than what we are used to seeing. Maximum combined output for the power supply is 1000W.

I was really surprised to see that both Over Current Protection and Over Temperature Protection are missing from the LTP1000-SM, especially considering this is a rebranded Super Flower Golden King unit and all of the others we've covered have had at least one of the two the protections present. Aside from the two missing protections, everything else is present. The power supply features both native and modular cabling, all of which is either fully sleeved or of the flat ribbon type. The LTP1000-SM is rated for 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency as well as 100% continuous output at 50C.

 

The Sentey LTP1000-SM isn't available for purchase in the USA, but we've been told to expect the unit in March. Once it hits the shelves, you can expect it to have an MSRP of $219.99. This puts it comparatively priced against other similar power supplies. Sentey will back it with a seven year warranty should the need ever arise.
