In 2019, content creation has never been so easy. This holds true for even the least knowledgeable when it comes to skills such as filming and editing. Thanks to sites such as YouTube and Facebook, anyone can upload anything be it home movies, independent journalism or cat videos. One of the key factors that sets good videos apart from the bad is obviously video quality. However, this goes beyond resolution and the f-stop of your lens. You can have beautiful 4k video, shot on a Zeiss cinema lens. But if your footage is shaky, no one will watch it.

Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 ARGB 750W Power Supply

Thermaltake’s RGB enabled power supplies have been a favorite with gamers for a couple of years now for their ‘bling factor’ and reliable power. While nearly everything related to computers has gone RGB these days, the latest update to the aesthetics is complete control of every single LED, or ‘Addressable RGB’ of every device. What’s the fun of an RGB power supply if you have complete control of every other light in your system, but only get a handful of colors or effects on one device? How annoying is it to have to adjust every device independently? Thermaltake solves this problem with the Toughpower GF1 ARGB family of power supplies. Featuring addressable RGB lighting that can connect to your favorite motherboard and perfectly sync up with the rest of your system, as well as an 80 plus gold rated efficiency and a 10-year warranty gives any gamer everything they need in a power supply.

This can be a scary situation. You’ve already spent all your money on the high-end graphics card of the year but you have to be able to hear what do you do? You run to the store again and see the nice yellow and black box of the new Corsair HS60 Pro Surround headset.

If that wasn’t enough, they did it right over the top of a fully modular 80 PLUS Platinum rated power supply. The Toughpower PF1 ARGB comes in three flavors from 850W to 1200W for even the biggest systems. If your proverbial cake still isn’t sweet enough, the new digital platform offers class-leading 2% voltage regulation and sub 30mV ripple at all load levels for maximum performance out of your system.
