Tuniq Miniplant 950W Power Supply
February 28, 2008

Sunbeamtech launched their upscale line of computer components under the Tuniq brand name several years ago, but the selection remained rather limited for quite some time. In recent months the number of Tuniq products on the market has increased greatly, and their reputation for quality and high performance has, as well.

We were recently impressed by one of their innovative cases, and this time around we will be taking a look at one of their new power supplies, the Miniplant 950W. While the term "Miniplant" may give the impression that this is somehow associated with Bonsai trees, what it really refers to is that this is a high output power supply that doesn't require an oversized housing. In fact, the Tuniq website states that it is the "highest wattage 80+ power supply on the market in the standard PS2 Form Factor".


The promotional image above doesn't reveal much about this PSU other than that it offers a no nonsense appearance. Before taking a look to see if the performance matches the appearance, let's take a look at some published data on the Tuniq Miniplant 950W power supply.

Features:

Highest wattage 80+ Power supply on the market in the standard PS2 Form Factor
Standard PS2 :158 x 148 x 90 mm
Japanese Ripple Capacitor
Conformed with SLI
High efficiency 80 plus
All kinds of protection circuits (OCP/OVP/SCP/OPP)
Active PFC
3-year warranty

Specifications:

AC input: 110~230 VAC, 50~60Hz
DC Terminal Current(A)
    12V1: 20A
    12V2: 20A
    12V3: 20A
    12V4: 20A
    5V: 30A
    3.3V: 24A
    -12V: 0.5A
    +5V USB: 3A
Maximum Combined Wattage:
    12v Rails: 810W
    3.3V and 5V Rails: 170W
    -12V Rail: 6W
    +5V USB Rail: 15W
Maximum: 950W

What kind of protection circuits? "All kinds". As you can see there are four 20A 12V lines, and both the 5V and 3.3V rails have respectable amperage ratings, too. Many manufacturers are getting back to having one large 12V line, or at least multiple 12V lines that can be combined if needed, and I must say that is something I would rather have now.
