The Montech Titan Gold 1000W registers high performance, it is not noisy and it has a 12VHPWR connector. The most important of all, it passes all ATX v3.0 transient response tests, so it won’t have a problem powering the existing and upcoming graphics cards.
Montech puts lots of effort into entering more into the PSU market, and its new Titan Gold line is a fine example. It includes three members with capacities ranging from 850W to 1200W and Cybenetics Gold efficiency ratings. The Titan Gold has strong competition, including the Corsair RMx and RMx Shift units, the EVGA G7 line (up to 1000W), the Asus Rog Strix Aura gaming, and Thermaltake’s fresh GF3 models. From the aforementioned lines, only the RMx (so far, at least) and the G7 lines don’t have ATX v3.0 compatibility and lack 12VHPWR connectors.
All Montech Titan Gold units are made by CWT, utilizing a slightly modified CSZ platform. This specific platform is highly popular since it offers ATX v3.0 compatibility and good performance without breaking the bank. This is why Thermaltake chose it for its GF3 line, in the models with up to 1200W capacity.Cybenetics Report

I am choosing between Montech Titan Gold and Corsair RMx Shift, which one would you recommend?
It depends, if you need the side panel of the Shift. If not, you could save some money with the Montech unit since its normal price is around 170 dollars.
Thanks for this review Aris!
Really strong showing, solid performance, here , from Montech. I didn’t expect that from an “outsider” .
With this, they are becoming a competitive option.
I PARTICULARLY liked the 150mm distance between the sata power connectors, FINALLY someone is listening and getting this thing right!
It sets is apart from the competition in my book.
Short distance between the sata can be frustrating even in midi cases.
That said, needs a little improvement here and there, but there’s nothing outright wrong with it.
Indeed someone listened finally, and put 150mm distance between peripheral connectors 🙂
