So when I originally contacted Thermaltake about the DPS G RGB 850W I had planned on replacing the Thermaltake DPS G 750W in our D-Frame build with the new RGB design to match the red lighting in our build. My initial research showed that the power supply was the same size and used the same cable connections so it would be a quick swap. I didn’t, however, know that they had just introduced a new 80 Plus Titanium rated model and that model was a little different than the 80 Plus Gold that I had done my research on. So when this power supply came in I found out that it wouldn’t fit in our build. They sent the other as well for our build and it looks great in it.

That said I did want to still take a closer look at the DPS G RGB 850W Titanium because it had all of the same features that had caught my eye as well as much more efficient design. In the end, I was really impressed with the overall design of the power supply. However, when I dug into the cables I was a little disappointed. Thermaltake upgraded the already great flexible/thin black cabling that most power supplies come with to individually sleeved cables. That in itself would be great, and the construction of the new cables is top notch as well. The problem I had was with the colors they went with. The red and black were fine and would go with most builds, but the gold/yellow sleeved cables are most likely not going to match most builds and that’s the point of going with badass cables right? Thermaltake does sell individually sleeved cables in colors that should match most builds, but hopefully, they consider dropping the yellow and going with a more neutral color scheme in the future.

The RGB lighting, on the other hand, is awesome. You can use the DPS G RGB 850W Titanium in any build and just set the lighting to match perfectly or if you are feeling spicy you can just have it rotate through all of the colors. The ring lighting on the fan lights up the fan and puts a slight glow out into your case as well.
