The Montech Titan Gold 1200W is almost identical to the Thermaltake GF3 1200W, costing less, while covered by the same ten-year warranty. It currently is the most affordable true ATX v3.0 1200W unit, certified by Cybenetics, close to the 200 dollar mark.
The Montech Titan Gold 1200W is included in my best ATX v3.0 & PCIe 5.0 PSU picks article.
An undeniable fact is that ATX v3.0 and PCIe 5.o ready PSUs are way more expensive than the previous generations’ ones because of the changes required to adapt to the stricter requirements. So finding a 1200W ATX v3.0 PSU costing close to the $200 mark is a pleasant surprise showing that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and at some point, the prices of the new PSUs will drop. Montech used Channell Well Technology’s popular CSZ platform, also used in the Thermaltake GF3 1200 model, for its Titan Gold 1200 unit. All members of the Titan Gold family use the CSZ platform, which was among the first that could be upgraded to meet the strict ATX v3.0 requirements.
I have already reviewed the Montech Titan Gold 1000W; its review is here.
The Montech Titan Gold 1200W has compact enough dimensions for its capacity, measuring 160mm in length. Besides the Cybenetics Gold efficiency certification, it also has a Cybenetics Standard+ (35-40 dB[A]) in noise output, meaning it is not a silent PSU. Still, I will provide detailed noise output details later in this review. Its cooling handles a 135mm FDB fan, provided by Hong Hua.
