Tuniq, a subsidiary of Sunbeamtech, really made their name known with their Tuniq Tower CPU air cooler. The Tuniq Tower was recognized as one of the best air coolers on the market for longer than a year. Since then, they have become increasingly popular for their cases, thermal accessories, and most recently, power supplies.

One power supply that has been getting a lot of attention lately is the Tuniq Miniplant 950W which we have for review today. Tuniq claims that the Miniplant delivers the most wattage available in the standard PS2 form factor. As if this weren't enough, it is also said to run very cool and very quiet.

The Miniplant arrives in a glossy, attractive black box. Features and pictures decorate the sides and there is a power distribution chart on the front. Inside the cardboard box you'll find the unit, encased in fitted Styrofoam blocks, with the cables bundled in a small cardboard box on the right side. This is very standard packaging for a power supply. Full features and specifications, from the Tuniq website, are:

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

There are a lot of good things going for the Miniplant, including its 80+ efficiency, size, and SLI certification. The Miniplant does not have modular cabling, however, which may turn many customers away, but good cable management can always remedy something like that. Four +12V rails can also be a problem, but seeing as they are all rated at 20A, it's not too worrisome.
