In a show as big as Computex, it's sometimes hard to get your booth noticed. Not the case with GeIL - it's pretty tough to overlook a gigantic Thor statue. What does Thor have to do with GeIL, a company known for its memory? GeIL was promoting its new power supply brand, Thortech.
After seeing the giant Thor statue, it didn't surprise me when I was brought to the power supplies first. Thortech consists of two lines, the Thunderbolt Series and the Thunderbolt PLUS Series. Both series are 80 Plus Gold certified, modular, features low ESR 105°C solid state capacitors, has a 135mm ball bearing fan with smart fan control circuit, and comes with a five year warranty. The Thunderbolt Series features a quad-rail design providing up to 52A on the 650W model, 70A on the 850W model, 80A on the 1000W model, and 100A on the 1200W model. The Thunderbolt PLUS Series features a single rail design providing up to 65A on the 800W model, 80A on the 1000W model, and 100A on the 1200W model. The Thunderbolt PLUS series also comes with an iPower Meter PC chassis front control panel, which displays voltage, efficiency rating, fan speed, and temperature.
As far as memory goes, there's the EVO TWO, DDR3 gaming memory with MTCD (Maximized Thermal Conduction & Dissipation) Technology. EVO TWOs are available in dual, triple, quad and hexa-channel kits, and come in nine speeds ranging from PC3-8500 all the way up to PC3-20000. All EVO TWOs come with a lifetime warranty.
