Thermaltake 775W Toughpower XT Power Supply Review

http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:q1MVepo0OF8dUM:http://megaobzor.com/load/fire/ThermXT775/1.jpgThe term absolute power corrupts absolutely is somewhat true in everything except when it comes to your PC. The closest you can get to absolute voltage the better your PC performs. Anyone that has ever been stuck with a low end PSU knows that nothings is more frustrating than having the back bone of your PC becoming a spineless piece of garbage. Thermaltake is known for their rock solid Power Supplies and I am personally a fan. I am currently running multiple builds in my house 2 of which I trust only with Thermaltake PSU’s. Because we have a large base of Overclockers coming to OCHQ we know the importance of stable power. The last thing that should be effecting your prime OC is a poorly made PSU. Today we will be looking at a Thermaltake Toughpower XT 775W Power Supply. Let’s see what sets it apart from its competitors.

Conclusion:

Much like its predecessor’s the Thermaltake Tough Power 775W XT Power Supply runs rock solid at the right voltages. This power supply has a ton of extras and its modular design makes for a very tidy case which means better airflow and much better overall performance.

Would I recommend this products? Yes, Thermaltake has never let me down and if they keep up this level of quality I don’t think they ever will. The bonus of the 80 Bronze certifications means running this PSU will save me money in the long run.

Pros:

  • Price Quality Ratio
  • Modular 
  • S.P.T Indicators
  • 80Plus Bronze
  • Japanese Solid State Capacitors

Cons:

  • One 12v Rail Only
