ASUS ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II Power Supply Review


With the ASUS ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II carrying (as the name might suggest) a platinum efficiency rating, this requires an exceptionally high level of performance. In fact, there is only one tier higher than this, and, quite frankly, 99.9% of models with that rating often carry a pretty eye-watering price tag. – With this in mind, therefore, how well did this PSU manage to do?

Well, the short answer is that within a fairly reasonable margin of error, it makes Platinum, but only by the skin of its teeth. In all honestly, the results are far more in line with a very high ‘Gold’ (the tier immediately below) rather than Platinum. Given the consistently high results after 40% load, however, we are willing to concede that this does perform at the official stated efficiency value.

PFC (Power Factor Correction)

The PFC, as often is the case for the vast majority of power supplies, initially starts off quite low at the 20% load mark. Once you start asking the ASUS ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II to put in a little more effort, however, the results very quickly ramp up to very respectable levels. With a top score achieved of 0.976, this is definitely more than a little indication that this is power supply utilises some quality components.

Voltage Regulation

As you can see in the results below, the average deviancy provided by the ASUS ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II is exceptionally low. In fact, regardless of the power output we tested this PSU at, the results largely remained superbly consistent. However, a particular highlight is undoubtedly seen in the 3.3V results and, arguably far more important, the 12V rail/s.
