Tuniq Miniplant 950W Power Supply
February 28, 2008

Packaging:

Tuniq sells the Miniplant 950W power supply in the black box shown below. The front and back of the box each provided a picture of the unit, while the back also lists a few of the Miniplant's key features.

The below left image shows one side of the box, which features a reproduction of the label found on the power supply itself. The below right image shows another side of the box, where all of the connectors are counted up. There is a fair selection of IDE and SATA power connections, as well as PCI Express connections with both 6-pin and 8-pin plugs.

External Examination:

For some reason, perhaps due to the layout of the above right image, I was under the impression that this was a modular power supply. So, when I opened the box and saw the PSU on one side and a white box on the other, I still thought it was modular and that the cables were all stored in the box. While the cables are in the box, they are all attached to the power supply, and the joke was on me as I tried to remove the power supply housing without the box of cables.

The Miniplant 950W power supply's appearance is strictly business, and while the all black color scheme is simple, I defintiely like it. The fan grill and housing have a bit of a titanium finish, while the fan, cable sleeving, and power connectors are all black. I am glad to see the gawdy era of power supply design has finally died off.

The cooling is all handled by a single 11-bladed 135mm fan that exhausts through the hexagonal mesh on the back of the power supply. Other features out back include the AC power plug, on/off switch, and a blank area that could be used for a 110V/230V AC power switch if it wasn't designed to switch automatically.

The images above also take a look at a few other faces of the power supply, where you can see that one side features the data label found on the box, while the other side features a few quality control stickers and an "Nvidia SLI Ready" label. The wording of that sticker, and the bullet point in the list of features that says "Conformed with SLI" makes me think this was never certified with Nvidia for SLI usage. It may pass the test, but they never paid to make it official.
