Thermaltake Smart BM3 850W Semi-Modular Power Supply Review

We love ultra-high-end hardware here at eTeknix, but at the same time, I’m fully aware that that isn’t what everyone really needs, nor does everyone want to pay the price for it either. While the Smart BM3 isn’t the most exciting power supply in the world, albeit even the best power supplies aren’t that exciting either, it looks like it ticks all the right boxes for a pretty high-end gaming PC build without costing the Earth. With a choice of 550, 650, 750 and 850W units, there’s one to suit most requirements and the top model is more than enough for a powerful CPU combined with a fairly high-end graphics card such as the RX 7800 or RTX 4070 Ti SUPER.

The Smart BM3 is also 80 PLUS Bronze certified, comes with a semi-modular PSU design and meets the ATX 3.0 standards, including a 12VHPWR connector for PCIe Gen 5.0 devices. With all the safety features you would expect, a high-quality Japanese main capacitor, and backed up by a competitive five-year warranty, it looks like a strong contender for budget-conscious system builders.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
