    I like the idea of the monitoring abilities, however I feel I prob would not use the temp probes due to already using other solutions, what does apeal though is the Wattage metter, which gives a nice indication of the idle and load levels, this can prove reasureing for people whom have thier pc's stacked with gear, so they may see just howmuch of the PSU is in use.

    I like the features, but the novelty will wear off pritty fast I think, once checked that the psu handles all the kit you have on load, I dont see much of a reason to keep checking it, thus negating one of the reasons for getting the PSU.

    It's like CPU (or whatever else) temps though - once you know it only hits 60C it isn't going anywhere, so then why do people continually run it in their taskbar? :)

    In case something breaks/comes unplugged.... also, if i know that something should be at 30 degrees, and when I look I see 35, I know that my case needs cleaning.

    Gigabyte actually have a range of PSU, the GT is just one of the series.

    For example,
    The ODIN GT comes with the monitoring software
    The ODIN Pro does not, and is a standard PSU
    The Superb range – really just a budgde PSU

    friend of mine actually got this same one(or horribly similar) a few months ago, and I got to help him set it up...it's rather nice. 4 computers running at the same time with other things running in one room isn't too great of an idea though...ended up with a couple surges.

    I completely forgot to drop in my photos of the actual testing recording the voltages etc. I'll sort them out and drop them in for verification. :thumb:

    I guess the idea is there – something different.

    The software is about giving you control of your PSU, no other PSU in the market can do this.

    Motherboard manufactures offer software O/C features, but I don’t think many people actually use it for O/C.
    So if you can control your M/B, then why not you’re PSU!

    :p

    Hi, I just bought that powerfull PSU today. There is this software Powertuner (to have full control over the PSU) came along with it, It doesn't seem to work neither on Vista 64 nor XP 32.

    Well it should work in 32bit XP, it worked fine in 32bit Vista, I can't say the same for 64bit.

    Tried other USB ports or internal ports? Otherwise, return it and get a new one?

    As far as I know, the P-Tuner software only works on 32-bit Windows.
