The FSP Hydro PTM X Pro 1000W ATX 3.0 PSU Review: Premium Platinum Power
by E. Fylladitakis on March 7, 2023, 8:00 AM EST

The global power supply market has been witnessing significant growth in recent years, driven by the increasing adoption of high-performance computing systems and the growing demand for energy-efficient products. According to a report by ReportLinker, the global PSU market is expected to reach $46.2 billion by 2027, with a CAGR of 5.9% from 2020 to 2027 (revised to 5.5% post-pandemic). Although the report includes almost every type of PSU (and not just PC PSUs), it also mentions the increasing demand for high-wattage PSUs for gaming and mining applications, which is expected to drive market growth further. Fortron Source Power, commonly known as FSP, was one of the primary sources that facilitated this report.

FSP is a Taiwanese company that has been providing power supply solutions since 1993. The company prides itself on its commitment to quality and innovation and has gained recognition for its reliable and energy-efficient products. FSP's product portfolio includes power supplies for personal computers, servers, industrial and medical equipment, LED lighting, and electric vehicles. FSP's power supply unit (PSU) division is one of its flagship businesses, and the company has been consistently expanding its product lineup to meet the growing demand for high-quality PSUs. Today the company offers a wide range of options to cater to different user needs.

In today’s review, we are taking a look at the Hydro PTM X Pro 1000W, FSP’s latest ATX 3.0-compliant unit. FSP released one of the first ATX 3.0 units in the market, the Hydro G Pro series, which we took a look at a couple of months ago. In comparison to that power supply, the PTM X Pro series is aimed at system builders seeking a higher level of performance, with the primary discernible difference being the 80 Plus Platinum efficiency certification. Of course, the better certification rating implies several design differences, which we will examine in this review.

FSP Hydro G Pro 1000W (ATX 3.0, 1000W PSU) review - Final Words & Conclusion

The FSP Hydro G Pro 1000W (ATX 3.0) is a good product. The size is compact (150 mm in length), so you won’t need a bigger chassis to make it fit without a problem. The exterior looks very nice, but the thing is that most of the chassis nowadays have a PSU shroud, which would hide this piece of art behind a metal. You can find the fanless mode here, which you can disable, and it would still be a quiet power supply unit. The unit comes with a 10-year warranty. It’s an 80 Plus Gold certified PSU, and that’s a typical choice for even the high-end systems (maybe a bit more) from the consumer’s point of view (in terms of efficiency/price of the unit). The 1000 W variant offers a massive power output that should be enough for most users, even the most elaborate gaming setups, with a single graphics card in their system. A PC like the one used in this test (i9 13900K + Geforce RTX 3080) rarely exceeds 500-550 W of power draw.

REVIEW: FSP Dagger Pro 850 Watt SFX PSU


【Taipei, Mar.27, 2022】 The Dagger Pro 850 simply isn’t a PSU that is going to get on your nerves while you're using it. You won’t worry about the noise or power. At 850 Watts, it has enough power to run any GPU currently sold and can power the latest CPUs without issue. Pushing those CPUs and GPUs to their limit won’t punish your sense of hearing either. By the time the fan spins up, your other components are already louder. There was no bearing click and no coil whine. Power supplies can vary from unit to unit, but it’s been the first high-power PSU I’ve tested in quite a while that was just simply quiet and faded into the background. For me, that alone is worth spending some extra money.  There is nothing worse than having an amazing build ruined by an irritating noise you simply can’t get rid of.
