Odin is a GIGABYTE power supply in top management

The second quarter of 2007 sees GIGABYTE come to the party with its long-awaited Odin series of power supply units. On the Odin line-up are two series Odin Pro and Odin GT, bursting the seams with 550W, 680W and 800W - across each model.

Odin GT, the flagship model, on completion, had post-design testing which took another year to complete. Among the influences taken into account during design and testing was Microsoft’s new OS Vista, the new generation of dual or more PCI-express display cards and the Intel almighty multi-core processors. What does this all mean? Simply put, all new technology requires the right type of supporting hardware to maximize its glory.

At a glace, Odin GT seems pretty well… ordinary. Zoom in, and a few things crystallize.

Behold. A software management solution embedded in this little monster. How this works? In brief, it manages the following: output voltages and load on each rail, power fan speed tweak, localized or preset temperature monitors, power supply lighting control, proximity warning bells and even present user modes for performance, normal use or silent operation. This equates to absolute manageability.

Intel 12V V2.2 specification guidelines were not enough for Odin. Odin comes live with no less than 4 rails of power output. This means even more added stability for your personal computer.

If the above is not enough for you to play with… enter cable management. This absolves untidy cable interiors, impeded internal aerodynamics of airflow and last but not least, it just looks good.

Japanese capacitors, a large illuminated heat sink, 14CM dual-ball-bearing fan top it all off to allow Odin to fly the 80+ efficiency flag, meaning, in short, more than 80% of you input power is usable with average components clocking in at about 20% less than that. This equates to two things. 20% more power or 20% less power loss and 20% less heat generated from the power loss.
