ASUS ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II Power Supply Review

Fan Speed

One of the key features of the ASUS ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II is having a low level of noise output. No, generally speaking, power supplies are often not the loudest of components. If you do, however, value quiet system performance, then having a PSU specifically catered towards that task can make a huge difference.

The ASUS ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II is quite clever in that it does come with a ‘ZERO RPM’ fan mode that, in its simplest terms, sets the fan to only run when absolutely necessary. In this mode, despite having the power supply running at 100% load for over 15 minutes, it never deemed it necessary to operate once. As such, quiet performance is definitely a huge positive factor for this PSU design.

Presuming you do, however, prefer to have a little generic airflow, then even in this more ‘standard’ mode the ASUS ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II is notably quiet. In our testing, the fan speed never exceeded 475 RPM and dropped to around 400RPM at a low wattage output. The fan noise output at this level was exceptionally quiet, and, so much in fact, that it almost makes the ‘zero’ mode somewhat redundant.

For those of you who value super-quiet system performance, however, the ASUS ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II certainly puts a big (but near-silent) tick in that box!
