TC1KW4E Closer Look

Introduction TC1KW4E Closer Look The Certified Test Report Specifications Conclusion


The TC1KW4E is certainly UNLIKE any PSU currently made. Current images don't convey enough information about the 1KW series, so let's take a closer look the internals.

The Back Of The Turbo-Cool 1KW-Quad SLI PSU

The back of the TC1KW4E is your standard look, with the modular (this is the only connection PC Power & Cooling will allow to be modular!) power connector, Power ON/OFF switch, and the back-end 80mm air fan (which is made by Delta Electronics).

The Front Of The Turbo-Cool 1KW-Quad SLI PSU

The front of the TC1KW4E (which is the end with the cables coming out) is quite a sight to be seen.

Big Copper Coils

Some pretty big and hefty copper coils can be seen not only in the following image but throughout the inside of the Quad SLI.

If you look around the copper coils, you can also observe the rubber shielding on virtually everything in site. Not that I would try it or should you, but the inside of the TC1KW4E is so protected and sealed, you wouldn't need the cover. Properly covered and sealed connections are another factor of keeping your PSU at a stable temperature.

Heatsinks

A nice set of three heatsinks covers most of the top of the TC1KW4E.

Professional Cables

Taking a random shot of the cables, you can see how meticulous PC Power & Cooling with its products. Caps cover unused power connectors, braids surround the cables with rubber tubing to reinforce the ends of the cables, and heavy gauge wire is used for all the cables themselves.

Hey, Those Are Potentiometers

Obviously you don't want to even think about messing with these, but as mere information about the TC1KW4E, there are four small potentiometers on the side, which I assume control four separate rails of power current.
