FSP launched its high-end Titanium efficiency PSU, the Hydro Ti Pro 1000W. This PSU leads the 1000W category in performance and it is also dead silent. It is the only FSP PSU so far achieving Titanium and A++ efficiency and noise certifications, in Cybenetics.
FSP is known for its strong cooperation with the brand be quiet! which has a significant presence in the German market. It has also cooperated with EVGA for the G5 and G7 PSU lines. Besides selling its platforms to other brands, FSP keeps its retail channel. This is not new to the OEM world, with Seasonic and Super Flower doing the same. The Hydro Ti Pro 1000 uses a new platform, which has not been given so far to any other brand, making it highly interesting. Besides the standard Hydro Ti Pro unit, FSP was kind enough to send me a limited edition. The only difference is in the exterior coating, from which I will share some photos. I didn’t test this special edition, only the standard model.
The FSP Hydro Ti Pro 1000 is an ATX v3.0 PSU with a 12VHPWR connector set at 600W power output. Besides the 1000W unit, there is also an 850W model on the same line, which I will evaluate once FSP sends me a sample in a future review.
With only 150mm in depth, the 1000W model is compact, which usually affects noise output. Nonetheless, thanks to the highly efficient platform, there is no need for an aggressive speed profile for the FDB fan; hence the unit achieves a silent operation.

Ack, of course this is launched just as I bought an Ai1300P. Well, hopefully I won’t be disappointed.
The Ai1300P is also very good 🙂
Just installed it and I already like it. Cables are nice, everything’s working well, no issues with the native 12VHPWR cable. Unit keeps its fan off until 650W as advertised, and I rarely get near let alone reach that mark.
Despite it being a “loud” unit, when the fan is on (almost never), it only spins at low RPM. Temperatures seem under control. No electrical noise from the unit at all either. Just a bit of solder smell, but that’s normal with new PSUs, all my previous ones had it for a few days.
Seems like a quality unit and hope it lasts me a long while. If not, there’s always this FSP PSU to fall back on 🙂
Finally! \o/ This is what I’ve been waiting for.
Thanks for the awesome review!
Hi, will you also be evaluating the 850W model? Because this PSU is ATX 3.0 compliant, most people don’t need to overprovision and buy the 1000W unit to prevent transient spike shutdowns.
FSP didn’t send me this model, unfortunately. But I will ask for it.
Is there a difference between this FSP 1000W model and the BeQuiet Dark Power 13 1000W? The circuit elements appear similar to BeQuiet’s 850W model, but that still performed noticeably worse in your tests, though efficiency is comparable between the two. Lastly, will the 1000W Dark Power 13 be reviewed to compare performance with this 1000W FSP unit?
They are different platforms. This platform is currently used only by FSP and no other brand. I plan to review the DP13, yes. Already have it in my schedule.
Thanks, looking forward to the DP13 review (the HTI-1000M is not available in my country). Regarding the DP13, I read on reddit some concerning things about fan rattle at low speed and multiple replacements until BeQuiet was able to offer a good one, and that apparently a Dark Power Pro 13 is also on the horizon for this year. Maybe that will share a platform with this FSP model? Who knows…
Is the special edition going to be sold on retail channels or only the black model?
No special edition won’t be sold anywhere.
I like how the Hela 1200w comes with flat 24 pin. The only problem I have with this unit outside of the price is the bulky 24 pin. Not fun for cable management.
After waiting for ages, I was finally able to order this one today. \o/ I can finally replace my 12 year old Corsair. So happy! 😃
