Gigabyte ODIN GT 800W Power SupplyGigabyte USB Gauge

Introduction

A major yet often underrated part of your computer is your power supply. Without it, you could have the best rig in the world, but it would never start. Gigabyte obviously realizes this and from the heavens releases the ODIN series Power Supply. Gigabyte should have seen my mouth drop when I first saw it and sent us the ODIN GT 800W Power Supply. With four rails, delivering up to 800 Watts, and 80%+ efficiency - you really cant go wrong. But as we all know, there is more to a power supply than just maximum output - maybe even a Gauge that measures Watts, Temp, and Fan Speed. Wouldn't that be cool!. What if you could control your Power Supply with Software. No need to ask what if anymore - your fantasies are now a reality. We were extremely pleased with the performance of the ODIN GT 800W Power Supply. Read on to find out why

 

What's In The Box?

The Gigabyte ODIN GT 800W Power Supply was packaged like a gift from the gods. There was an attractive outer box that contained a more durable inner box. A handle affixed to the top of the package, makes this Power supply easy to carry. Once you get the boxes open, the first thing you see is the manual containing the included PSU management software. The PSU itself is completely secured in place by ultra soft styrofoam, practically eliminating the chance of damage after packaging. Also enclosed are all of the wires you could possibly need to direct the 800 watts throughout your rig.

The Gigabyte Visuals USB Gauge arrived well packaged in an extravagant fold out box. The gauge was secured in by the box itself and actually secured in well. The front of the gauge has a plastic cover that peels off, preventing scratches and maintaining a good visual appearance
