About this deal
Also to anyone else following earlier posts of mine in this thread. The Hela 1200r sent a new production unit to Cybenetics and it has now passed atx 3.0 certification. Apparently they had sent a pre production unit first and that’s why it failed one of the transient load tests.Probably both use the same PCB, both are CWT production. I couldn't trust it and then returned it because I was going to use it as a rendering and workstation. Hahah, I have been watching certain pc parts that way for the last couple months, but as far as PSU's go. I just did a few hours of research and things are very confusing with all the conflicting info you find.
Electrolytic: 5x Rubycon (3-6,000h @ 105°C, YXG), 1x Nichicon (4-10,000h @ 105°C, HE), 2x Rubycon (6-10,000h @ 105°C, ZLH), 2x Rubycon (4-10,000h @ 105°C, YXJ) For this particular review, however, we’ll be taking a closer look at the 1350W variant (Albeit, for the sake of simplicity, from this point on we’ll just refer to it as the ‘Thermaltake ToughPower GF3’). What Does Thermaltake Have to Say? Toughpower GF3 Snow comes with a 12+4-pin connector to offer powerful and stable performance allowing the PSU to run next-generation GPUs naturally. Toughpower GF3 Snow series saves energy through its high energy efficiency up to 90% and is certified to 80 Plus Gold. The series has been optimized to work with all generations of Intel's processors to achieve maximum energy saving.

Toughpower GF3 ARGB series saves energy through its high energy efficiency of up to 90% and is certified to 80 PLUS® Gold. The series has been optimized to work with all generations of Intel processors to achieve maximum energy saving. Thermaltake TOUGHPOWER GF3 ARGB 850w: Unboxing and Closer Look Not a very high opinion of the company. Its easy to build a functional case and support it since its largely just steel/aluminum/plastic, but required parts like power supplies you can't just skimp on QA and CS. Top-end build quality with low ripple noise. GF3 1200 W Snow's all ripples are lower than 30 mV on +12V, +5V or +3.3V from 0% to 100% load to ensure a stable operation and keep your performance-critical components to function reliably for longer. As the power consumption of graphics cards has increased, so has their demand for power. The GF3 Snow series is designed to support NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards, ready to supply the graphics card according to their different ways of connections. Voltages will be monitored via a multimeter, and the AC power draw will be monitored via a power monitor when drawn from the wall. For the idle test, the system will be simply booted up and let run into Windows 11, and after 5 minutes, the readings will be taken when the power draw has leveled out.
It features a 140mm fluid dynamic bearing fan to balance silence and superior cooling perfectly. Furthermore, the Smart Zero Fan will not spin until it reaches a specific temperature, minimizing the fan noise. Offers cable selection for users while powering the system at an advantageous voltage. Low-profile flat white cable makes cable management easier, reduces clutter and increases airflow inside the chassis. All cables are long enough, and the distance between the peripheral connectors is adequate, at 150mm. The number of legacy PCIe connectors is low, and the most important is that they are installed onto two cables only. Nonetheless, the PSU is equipped with a 12+4 pin PCIe connector, able to deliver up to 600W so there is no need to use adapters for powering NVIDIA’s RTX 4000 series graphics cards. Protection Features OCP (Cold @ 26°C) The Toughpower GF A3 Gold series is compatible with Intel ATX 3.0 standards, Intel voltage regulation standards, and its 80 PLUS Gold certified. Don't miss the Toughpower GF A3 Gold series, if you are looking for a high-quality fully modular PSU to support next-gen graphics cards and restricted with your chassis dimensions.The rear details the efficiency, smart zero fan, low noise ripple design, strict voltage regulation, and connector and output specifications. Toughpower GF A3 Gold Snow series saves energy through its high energy efficiency up to 90% and is certified to 80 Plus Gold. It has been optimized to work with all generations of Intel's processors to achieve maximum energy saving. PCIe Gen 5.0 Ready! Designed with a native PCIe 12+4pin modular connector, the Toughpower GF3 series is built for the next-gen PCIe 5.0 graphics cards and is compatible with Intel ATX 3.0 specifications. The fully modular Toughpower GF3 series comes in 1650W, 1350W, 1200W, 1000W, 850W and 750W and is built to deliver 80 PLUS Gold efficiency. Aimed at providing the best performance, the Toughpower GF3 1350W includes all the critical features such as < 30mV low ripple noise design, extremely strict voltage regulation < ±3%, hold up time> 17 milliseconds, and comes with 100% high quality Japanese capacitors and other premium components to help deliver continuous and stable power.” Features To load the power supply, a combination of Cinebench R23 multi-threaded and Furmark will be run to put as much strain on the power supply as possible. After 10 minutes, the readings will be taken.
The GF3 Snow and the GF A3 Snow is 80 Plus Gold certificated, and can support the latest graphics cards, delivering exceptional installation flexibility. The brand-new snow edition even achieves a perfect balance between functional and aesthetic aspects. Don't miss out on these white ATX 3.0 power supplies to power up your all-white setup! The cables are delivered in a canvas bag. The lid is lined with velcro, so it can be used to store and seal the cables you don’t need safely and securely. Featuring a 120 mm fluid bearing fan to deliver excellent airflow. Furthermore, the Smart Zero Fan will not spin until the load exceeds a certain percentage of the power supply, minimizing undesired noise. A 16pin connector is included with the Toughpower GF A3 series to provide powerful and stable performance that enables the PSU to run next-generation GPUs natively.

Im definetly sure its not the fan, i tried to stop it from exterior and still noise happens. I guess high inrush current causing this for 1 second, but is that harmful for psu or pc? Thermaltake’s PSU people try hard to offer quality and high-performance products, and their cooperation with manufacturers like CWT plays a key role in this. The ToughPower GF3 1200 uses the proven CSZ platform, equipped with quality parts. The performance of this unit topped my charts with 115V input, and the PSU scored second with 230V input. Most of the PSUs I used for comparison purposes are Platinum, and one of them is Titanium (be quiet! Dark Power Pro 12), showing that I chose extra tough competitors for the GF3 1200. There aren’t many Gold 1200W units, so I had only two options, select lower capacity Gold units or go with Platinum ones with similar capacity, and I chose the latter. Probably youre right. Mine has cutoff mechanism inside, i can barely hear that something cutting off the power, but you cant control it.
