Well let me start by saying great customer support horrible psu. here my story with thermaltake in past 2 months.

1. bought psu for $70 it was the thermaltake tr2 600w on feb 22 12 by march 25 it blew up was running gtx 560 and gt 430 and phenom ii x4 955@4ghz. it was folding for i think 3 days then eating lunch heard REALLY loud pop pop. rellized it was psu. so no kim sucked took gtx 560 and 955 with it. well thermaltake had new one shipped out that day. great right. NO mad.gif

2 running my gtx 280 and 960t @4.3ghz and today it did the same thing. only had new one 2 weeks. so back on phone and told them i want better psu or my money back cause this product is not able to handle what they say so i get told there sending me this psu

http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Product.aspx?C=1264&ID=1986

seems like a good psu by paper but i am wonder now after my rant is it going to handle my gtx 280 gt 430 and 960t @ 4.3ghz/4.4ghz .

or should i try sell for 75/80 on my local classifieds. or run it for 6 months and get a new one when i go back to school in sept.

What TR2 600W unit did you have?.. the dual 12v rail one(W0388RU)!?... the TR2 RX 750 is not much better, still a poor HEC unit.

It's a trashy, old HEC unit.... don't take that TR2 RX, ask for one of these units:
TR-600P(good FSP unit)
TP Gold 550/650(again, good FSP Aurum units)
XT 575(very good CWT made unit)

If you do some research before you buy there's no reason to avoid TT, they sell some very good units as well as low end trashy ones(just like pretty much everyone else).

do I have to pay shipping to send it? I understand from some newegg reviews you have to pay if its 30+ days since purchase.
