Without benchmarking the XTR I can’t in good faith talk about the XTRs performance or possible reliability. Even so, I really do like the XTR. XFX did a great job of mixing a clean look with a little XFX styling with their unique fan grills. The XTR is a premium PSU and XFX didn’t skimp on its features. You get a certified 80 Plus Gold PSU meaning it has a high power efficiency and XFX went all out, even including a full modular design. When I think of XFX I think of gaming and gamers typically don’t care too much about noise. So it was a little unexpected for the XTR to focus on noise with its fan mode switch. With that said I loved that they included it, as a gamer that is getting older every day I have been more and more concerned with noise in my gaming rig. Having the option to be able to turn the fan off when not under heavy load should help me keep my sanity when browsing the internet. All in all I really like the XTR, XFX went above and beyond the standard PSU with a little styling and a few premium features. I would keep it on my short list of power supplies to check out on my next build.
