CES 2023

Thermaltake, the leading PC DIY premium brand for Case, Cooling, Gaming peripherals, and enthusiast memory solutions, is excited to announce the latest additions to their PSU lineups, the Toughpower GF3 ARGB Gold Series with 80 PLUS Gold certification, which is designed to meet ATX 3.0 standards and is PCIe Gen 5.0 ready. Designed to run with the PCIe Gen 5 graphics cards and the latest Intel CPUs, the Toughpower GF3 ARGB series comes in 750W and 850W, and with a 16.8-million-color 140mm RGB fan to give seven lighting modes by pressing the physical ARGB control button, the series is also compatible with RGB-supported motherboards.

The Toughpower GF3 ARGB series is fully modular and compatible with Intel’s ATX 3.0 specifications, which allows users to run modern graphics cards natively via the new 12+4 pin PCIe Gen 5 connector. The native 16 PIN (12VHPWR) PCIe connector of GF3 ARGB 750W can deliver up to 300W for PCIe 5.0 graphics cards, while the 850W’s can deliver up to 450W. It is also worth noting that the Toughpower GF3 ARGB series’s components have been massively upgraded this time to meet ATX 3.0 standards, supporting up to 200% power excursion, guaranteeing up to 70% efficiency at 2% load and complying with power supply timing standards, ensuring a silky smooth experience even at full load. In terms of its build quality, packed with 100% high-quality 105°C eletrolytics Japanese brand capacitors, the GF3 ARGB series is made even more durable and stable than ever before.

The built-in 140mm ARGB Fan with 9 addressable LEDs is ready to paint your build with 16.8 million colors. The lighting modes and color options can be switched through physical control buttons the RGB synchronizes with compatible RGB-support mainstream motherboards. Moreover, the 140mm fluid dynamic bearing fan creates the perfect balance between silence and superior cooling, to ensure your gaming PC will work efficiently under heavy load. And when enabled, the Smart Zero Fan mode can effectively minimize undesired noise. The Toughpower GF3 ARGB series features solid electrical specifications: low ripple noise, strict voltage regulation, and extended hold-up time. Firstly, from 0% to 100% load, ripple noise produced from 12V, 5V, and 3.3V are consistently under 30mV, bringing extensive lifespan and overall superior protection for your system. Secondly, the Toughpower GF3 ARGB series promises ±2% voltage regulation compared with Intel’s standard +5%, -7%, and ±10% for -12V. Last but not least, the 17ms hold-up time will prevent your system from rebooting and makes sure the system still runs perfectly even with a brief interruption.

With the premium components, well-thought-out features, and 16.8-million-color RGB fan, the Toughpower GF3 ARGB series will satisfy the gaming enthusiasts who are looking for ATX 3.0 ARGB PSU. Toughpower GF3 ARGB power supply lineup is backed with 10-year warranty, providing a long-term reliable operation.

Features of the Toughpower GF3 ARGB Series:

Power Up Next Generation Hardware

Toughpower GF3 ARGB Gold Series (750W/850W) is designed to meet ATX 3.0 standards, including a PCIe Gen 5.0 12VHPWR connector, the new ATX 3.0 PSU is ready to take full advantage of next-gen GPUs and CPUs. The 16.8 million-color 140mm addressable RGB fan with 9 LEDs preinstalled helps deliver brighter and richer lighting, and supports synchronization with main stream motherboards.

Fully Compatible with Intel ATX 3.0 Standards

Toughpower GF3 ARGB series is fully compatible with Intel ATX 3.0 specifications which support up to 200% power excursion, reaches 70% low load efficiency and complies with required power supply timing standards.

PCIe Gen 5.0 Ready

Toughpower GF3 ARGB Gold comes with a 16pin connector to offer powerful and stable performance allowing the PSU to run next-generation GPUs natively. The wattage marked on the 12VHPWR’s connector is the recommended wattage. (Ref. Intel design guideline) The native 16 PIN (12VHPWR) PCIe connector of the GF3 ARGB 850W can deliver up to 450W for PCIe 5.0 graphics cards, and the native 16 PIN (12VHPWR) PCIe connector of the GF3 ARGB 750W can deliver up to 300W for PCIe 5.0 graphics cards.

Made to Comply with the Latest Graphics Cards

As the power consumption of graphics cards increase, so has their demand for power. The GF3 ARGB series is designed to support NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards, and are ready to supply the graphics cards according to their different connections.

Glow with the Flow

The built-in RGB Fan features addressable LEDs, great light coverage, and uniform color and brightness to paint your build with 16.8 million colors. The lighting modes and color options can be switched through physical control buttons.

Be Smart, Stay Quiet

Featuring a 140mm fluid dynamic bearing fan to create the perfect balance between silence and superior cooling. Furthermore, with the Smart Zero Fan, the fan will not spin until it reaches a certain temperature, minimizing the fan noise.

30mV Low Ripple Noise Design

Top-end build quality with low ripple noise. All ripples are lower than 30mV 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.

Extremely Strict Voltage Regulation

The voltage regulation is stricter than Intel’s standard +5%,-7% for major rails and ±10% for -12V, is set to no more than ±2% for major rails, providing steady clean power through exceptional voltage stability.

17ms and up Hold Up Time

During a power interruption, your computer might shut down or reboot. We make sure that the GF3 ARGB series will deliver at least 17ms at 100% workload, without system reboot or resetting.

More Stable than Ever

100% high quality Japanese 105°C/221°F capacitors provide great durability as well as offering the highest stability, while remaining reliable.

High Amperage Single +12V Rail & High-Class Technologies

Powerful single +12V rail can properly deliver the power you need for the best compatibility. The use of LLC and DC to DC circuit design provides very stable operation and enhanced voltage regulation.

Fully Modular Low-Profile Flat Cables

Offers cable selection for users while powering the system at an advantageous voltage. Low-profile flat black cables make cable management easier, reduce clutter and increase airflow inside the chassis.

80 PLUS Gold Certified and Intel C6/C7 States Ready
