Asus ROG Thor since the launch of the 1200W Platinum version, many gamers have floundered about a PSU for gamers that is not only strong but also nice to be outside. A rare source of computers on the market that people don't want to close up just wants to show off and the more "Lo Lo" the better.
However, Asus ROG Thor 1200W Platinum is somewhat picky due to its extremely high capacity only for extremely terrible systems at a particularly harmful price. So the appearance of the lower version Asus ROG Thor 850W Platinum seems to fit a bit more. We also felt extremely lucky to finally have a customized PSU for this player on hand.
One way to box the ultra-bold Asus ROG and completely different from the experience of beating other computer sources. Two parts of the PSU and accessories are contained in 2 separate boxes completely creating a neat feeling that is not messy and entangled like other high-end sources.
Asus ROG equips Thor 850W Platinum with genuine ROG logo, black cord for tight wiring. The entire cable is also placed in the cloth bag very carefully.
The main source of Asus wires are meticulously meshed on each strand, soft and not bundled in one bundle and wrapped in mesh to be compact but big like ropes. Even, the Thor 850W Platinum's power cord is better than the long-range wire-coated power cables that are being offered on the market, only that it's not colored.
Returning to the main character, Thor 850W Platinum completely inherited the design of the 1200W Platninum with the front side of traditional Asus ROG vignette lines and a subtly treated surface from paint to material.
In the front where other firms use labels to decorate, Asus transforms into a display area with OLED displays that indicate power consumption and other information. The decorative edges and the shiny ROG logo RGB flicker are what are left in our eyes until later. Anyway, this is considered the main surface to be exposed, so it is understandable to be more polished than other surfaces.
On the other hand, although not completely revealed when in the system, but Asus is still very careful to have a uniform design language, but not to watch but also makes us feel excited and almost rub each while watching.
There are 2 modes for Thor 850W Platinum which are common mode and 0db fan. And of course to be able to operate quietly without the need for a fan, make sure that the internal components system is extremely quality to have a high performance and low energy loss. This mode is placed immediately after the power switch is quite convenient to use.
About the ability to carry the burden, the Thor 850W Platinum is not as strong as 1200W but also strong enough to carry the dinosaurs with the top 8pin for CPU and VGA. Recently, motherboards with more than 8 batteries of CPU power are getting more and more. The most obvious evidence is that the high-end motherboards Z390, X299 and X470 X570 have appeared in the last 2 years, making gamers have to invest more seriously in the computer system. Or not to mention the "power-hungry" graphics cards with 8pinx3 auxiliary power pins like many GeForce RTX 2080Ti versions. Along with that is a sufficient number of source pins for SATA connections, Molex has other devices, etc.
With a price of more than 6 million, it is quite a bit thirsty when spending money to buy Asus ROG Thor 850W Platinum but the experience with this source is absolutely worthy and especially it is cheaper to 3 million VND for ROG fans want to own an impressive source, not spend money to buy a huge source without using it all.
