Tisonic Mega Power ATX-460-1024DF PSU ReviewFormer staff writer - April 20, 2004
Externally the Mega Power EPS looks great with its black housing and gold accented fan grills. The black housing really makes theTisonic stand out against plain looking Steel PSU’s. The Tisonic’s specs are very impressive with offering plenty of Amperage on the rails. This PSU is definitely aimed at the overclockers or someone who has lots of drives.
When I first received this PSU I was shocked that the cables were sleeved. The Tisonic’s price point is pretty low, and I surely wasn’t expecting the sleeved cables and impressive specs for the price. The Tisonic offers plenty of connections equipped with 6 4pin Molex connectors, 2 FDD connectors, 2 SATA connectors, a 20pin ATX, a 6pin AUX, and a 4pin 12V connector. The Molex/FDD connectors are set up as: 2 lines w/ 3 Molex, 2, FDD. The SATA connectors are set up as 2 lines w/ 1 SATA connector.
To keep things cool inside the PSU Tisonic used two fans one 80mm/ one 92mm. the fans RPM is changed depending on the internal temp of the PSU Tisonic calls this advanced optimum balance (OB) design. This ensures the PSU internal operating temperature stays with in spec for optimal performance, and keeps fan noise to a minimum.
Internally the Tisonic is laid out much like another PSU. I personally thought the heatsinks could have been slightly bigger, compared to my Antec True Power the Tisonic's heatsinks have less surface area.
