A few weeks ago, we had our first contact with 1ST Player (or 1STPLayer), a Chinese manufacturer of PC components and peripherals. Although the company is not yet known to the US/EU, they have impressive manufacturing capabilities and produce a great variety of products. And, having successfully made a name for themselves in their homeland, they are actively working on expanding their chain of products into North America and Europe.

Although the company is mostly producing gaming peripherals, ranging from keyboards to chairs, they also produce power and cooling products. They currently market six different power supply series, even going as far as a series specifically designed for cryptocurrency mining machines. But for today's review we'll be sticking to something more useful and consumer relevant, which is taking a look at the SteamPunk 80+ Gold 750W PSU, a power supply designed for advanced users and gamers.

The SteamPunk series essentially consists of two units, one 650W and one 750W, both of which are based on the same platform. There actually are four units in the series but that is because both are also available in white. As its name suggests, the SteamPunk 80+ Gold 750W PSU has an 80Plus Gold efficiency certification and a fully modular cable design. It is meant to be a product balanced between quality, performance, and cost. We will see how well it fares in this review.

Power specifications ( Rated @ 40 °C )
AC INPUT 100 - 240 VAC, 50 - 60 Hz
RAIL +3.3V +5V +12V +5Vsb -12V
MAX OUTPUT 15A 15A 63A 2,5A 0,3A
100W 750W 12,5W 3,6W

Packaging and Bundle

1STPlayer supplies the Steampunk Gold 750W PSU in a typical cardboard box that provides adequate shipping protection. The artwork on the box is basic but more than adequate for a product that will be primarily marketed online.

The bundle of the Steampunk Gold PSU is relatively rich for a product of its class. 1STPlayer supplies wire cable ties, Velcro cable straps, four black thumbscrews, a basic manual, and a typical AC power cable.

The Steampunk Gold PSU is a fully modular design, meaning that no cables are hardwired to the chassis. All of the cables are made of all black wires and black connectors. They are supplied in a roll bag, along with even more cable management wires.

    They didn't even stick any[1] gears on it! How can they call it steampunk?

    [1] I'm not counting the crude drawing on the fan.

    I mean a little brass at least...

    Does Steampunk plan to offer SFX\SFX-L power supplies?
  • Deicidium369 - Tuesday, May 12, 2020 - link

    Did you read the review? If you did you wouldn't care about anything else from this company.

    They're a sane fan profile away from a solid power supply. Given that ITX loads tend to be even lower and less likely to use 3.3V and 5V lines, it's possible a market entrant with supply chain advantages could choose to undercut the 500W SFX-L power supply market.

    Lets write Steampunk on the side of a product and not actually have any even remotely Steampunk themed cosmetic features.

    Seriously... I know gears, brass and shades of brown aren't exactly new and innovative ideas, but I think it's actually worse to just use the name of a cliche "theme" without having any of it's features.

    Maybe a Bioshock special edition? :-P
