FSP Hydro PTM PRO 1200W
FSP Group is one of the few actual power supply manufacturers and can be found providing OEM services for a number of other brands at various times including OCZ, Zalman, AOpen, Antec, SilverStone, Super Talent, Sigma, and many more. This wide distribution of FSP power supplies by FSP is not surprising given that it has been in business since 1993 and is one of the top 10 producers of power supplies in the world. For this review, we are looking at the new Hydro PTM PRO line and, in particular, the 1200W model (HPT2-1200M) in that line.
PTM? Power to The Max? IDK
The Hydro PTM PRO 1200W is the third power supply we have seen from FSP here at TheFPSReview and slowly we are creeping up there in the capacity as first we saw the SFX Dagger 600W and then the standard ATX12v/EPS FSP Hydro G PRO 1000W. Today, we are again looking at a full ATX12v/EPS sized unit that tips the scales at a hefty 1200W figure. With the launch of new GPU’s by NVIDIA with their 30 series sucking down huge amounts of power again, this is certainly a timely moment to look at a unit that can support a system running one of these cards. Now, before we move on let’s see what FSP has to say about this unit:
The FSP Hydro PTM PRO series offers high efficiency and longevity to your PC build. Our proprietary conformal coating protects the power supply from dust, humidity, stains, and harsh environments. The Hydro PTM PRO has been designed to reliably operate at a relative humidity of up to 95%. It also features a semi-fanless eco mode that will suspend fan operation until the load has exceeded 30%. This feature can be controlled with the simple flick of a switch located next to the on/off button for easy access. This model also includes fully modular black ribbon cables for DIY enthusiasts looking to create cleaner builds. The FSP Hydro PTM PRO is a top-of-the-line power supply that delivers function, efficiency, and style making it a great addition to any system.
Let’s move on now and see what we can expect when a user purchases the FSP Hydro PTM PRO 1200W power supply in retail in terms of documentation, accessories, cable count, rail layout, output characteristics, and general build quality.
