Well in this case a good stable source of good clean high wattage power is just what is needed. Although gamers are known for being narcissistic and egomaniacal crazy people we take the time out of our days to change lives for the good, granted they are virtual lives, the world we are changing isn’t real, and our overall hygiene is suffering at the expense of others around us, but that is beside the point. Today we will be looking at the aforementioned power needed and the steadiness there of in order to reap the full benefit from your gaming rig and over all gaming experience, because let’s face it no one wants blue screen when they are saving the lives of millions. So today we will be looking at the Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W Power Supply so let’s check it out:

Conclusion:

Although 750W might not be enough juice for your Tri-SLI or Quad-Fire setup, it is more than enough for your average user, and the fact that this puppy is dead quiet makes it a great sleeper. What is a sleeper? If you are familiar with the drag racing world then you are familiar with this term and the definition is somewhat the same. For those of you that are staring blankly at your screen right now wondering what the (your choice of expletive inserted here) I am talking about: it is simple, a sleeper is a car that on the outside is a plain Jane seemingly stock straight off the manufacturers line car. Once the car leaves you choking up dust and beats you off the line you start to figure things out on your own. Usually the sleeper has a lot more under the hood then you first thought. In like manner if you can build a workstation that looks like your standard DELL build to be silent running, but have all the horse power you will ever need, your buddies won’t know what hit them when you start beating them in Super Pi and PC Mark challenges.

The Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W Power Supply is a rock steady work horse with all the cable management you need to maintain a clean case and good airflow. Couple the modular options with a quiet running fan and high efficiency output and you have yourself a winner.

Would I recommend this product? Yes, Thermaltake has always made a rock solid products and the quiet technology they used on their new TR2 series power supplies is far superior to other “silent PSU’s” I have used in the past. I whole heartedly endorse this product and think everyone looking for a good name to stand by Thermaltake is a great bet that won't upset.

Pros:

  • Silent!
  • Modular
  • Good Sized Cooling Fan
  • Solid Voltages
  • Lots of Expansion
Cons:
  • Some are Favoring the 100% Modular Designs as of Late Which The TR2 Doesn't Support
