    Packaging

    Although packing sells the product off the self it really doesn't inhance the performance of the product. The GT-365's packing is neat with the main device being placed in a city background.

    The GT-365

    The GT-365 is very simple. It runs off the power supplies +5vsb (+5v Rail, which is for computer Standby) and runs the fans from it. The GT-365 also has a power indication light, which detects wether the +12v is coming into the device or the +5vsb is required. When the indicator is red it is using the +5vsb and when green it is using the +12v from the fan header.

    Conculsion

    The GT-365 is a great little device, but its point is really useless. Though it has been proven computer can be damaged when turn off, it makes you think if you should buy one and put it in so you can be protected.

    Pros(+):
    • Cooling after computer is shut down
    • Uses standby rail
    • Keeps fans running at low speed for silent operation
    • Prevent system damage after shutdown
    Cons(-):
    • Wont work when the power supply is turned off
    • Limit to fan count
    • ATX Adpator is abit dodgy (20 pin PSU's won't click in)
    • No off switch
    • Could have a invertor to push it upto 12 volts
