The GAMDIAS Cyclops X1-1200P is a 1200 watt fully modular power supply. The Cyclops boasts an 80-Plus Platinum certification which is no small feat for high wattage unit. The Platinum certification means the Cyclops is able to perform at up to 92% efficiency while under load. GAMDIAS has opted to use 100% all Japanese capacitors which ensures that the unit will live up to the performance demands of gamers and enthusiasts. Included with the Cyclops is what GAMDIAS has branded as "Silent Mode." A switch on the back of the unit is used to change the fan profile allowing it to operate on a strict fan curve which monitors the temperature and changes the RPM's based on the needs of the unit. This is a great option for gamers and enthusiasts alike as it provides another level of performance and comfort. While the Cyclops may be marketed for gamers, it has more to prove than just gaming performance. This unit is gorgeous. It possesses a striking visual appearance utilizing laser cut patterns in the chassis and an RGB equipped fan to create a spectacular light show. GAMDIAS even opted to include an "LED" button on the back of the unit. This button allows the consumer to switch between 26 different RGB LED effects. It's a great addition to the unit and the physical nature of the switch guarantees there is one less bloatware driver to add to your operating system.
As we previously mentioned, the Cyclops X1-1200P is home to a stunning RGB-LED equipped 135mm Fluid-Dynamic bearing fan. This fan is absolutely stunning, it really helps bring the entire unit's design together and it gives consumers the option to show off their gear. I know what you are thinking, and I agree with you, it's not for everyone. GAMDIAS also agrees, if you don't like the LED it can be disabled via the LED button on the back of the unit. The fan is also conveniently quiet thanks to its Fluid Dynamic bearing. Most companies have swapped all their fans to similar designs due to the much quieter nature of the bearing system and the longer life span of the units. GAMDIAS has clearly put a lot of thought into this unit and is proving that the unit has more to offer than just LED's. The company is determined to deliver a high-quality product while still catering to the needs of both gamers and enthusiasts.
One interesting design aspect of the Cyclops that is easily overlooked is the choice of mounting orientation. The unit actually mounts to where the fan is face up. This means you can enjoy the LED fan as it creates a light show throughout the rest of your rig. It really does create a stunning effect and is just one smaller piece that helps make up the great design of the Cyclops X1.
The Cyclops X1 is anything but a boring PSU. It boasts incredible views from all angles and really shows the attention to detail that GAMDIAS has invested into not only this unit, but it's entire product line. The laser cut triangular patterns look great and helps to accentuate the GAMDIAS logo. Overall, the unit's clean lines, high-quality chassis, and its inclusion of LED's really help to push this unit over the top. It's an exceptionally gorgeous unit suitable for any project.
GAMDIAS ships the Cyclops X1-1200 with an incredibly generous 10 year warranty. As a new contender in the PSU market, that is a huge leap. Many of the big contenders still do not offer such a warranty and GAMDIAS has come out the gate standing firm behind its products 100%. This should help ease anyone's mind who may not be familiar with the brand, they clearly know what they are doing and are ready to prove it.
