On Thermaltake PSUs - Page 3

post #21 of 84
Thread Starter 
To my knowledge it's essentially a Corsair TX750W, internally. A lot of Thermaltake's Toughpower units are based on the same platforms with the same components from CWT as Corsair uses. They're moving towards their own modified CWT platform now, but that one should be pretty close to the Corsair TX750W/CWT PSH 750W.

Beat meh to it.

It's the same platform as the TX750 (CWT PSH), but with a modular cabling system, and slightly better voltage regulation (It's either that or ripple suppression... I can't remember which), but slightly cheaper caps. Not that it matters hugely.

Yeah I have both units and from what I can see they look nearly identical to each other on the inside.

Fun game: ask someone which has better performance, the Corsair VX550W or the Rocketfish 700W.




Answer: They're the same! Or pretty close. Both are CWT PSH 550W units.

Answer:
Yep.

Shame the Rocketfish is horribly overrated.

If it was labelled as a 550W unit, it would be great value. I wouldn't load it to 700W.

I have a thermaltake 500w pure power...



It ran my s939 rig well with a 3870 and it still works today.

I can't iterate this enough: just because it works, it doesn't mean it's good. It could be giving an excess amount of voltage ripple, which would wear down on the components' VRMs, shortening their lifespan.

Need the model #.


I should update this to be more clear...

The TR2/Pure Power line is like a box of chocolates (CWT-made power supplies). Only, someone's gone and replaced two thirds of the chocolates with cat poop that looks like chocolate (HEC-made power supplies). The average person just walks by, takes one, and eats it. If it's a chocolate, yay. If it's an HEC... Well, the analogy breaks down here because most people don't realize the harm a bad PSU does to your computer. But you get my point.

Dude I'll be honest, I totally missed the point there, but I know what you mean in PSU terms... I know more about PSUs than I do boxes of chocolates. =o\\

Maybe "cat poop laced with cyanide" instead?
and thanks 4 the giggle - I needed that.
