ThermalTake TR-2 RX 750 question - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Also, you should read:
"Why 99% of PSU Reviews are wrong/bad"

Though I could simply say only trust PSU Reviews from:
Hard OCP, JonnyGuru, & PC Perspective

Though some sites also have "good" reviews. But not great ones.
Hardware Secrets, Kit Guru, & Overclock3D.

Then some have good reviews, but sometimes flawed methods or not the most knowledgeable reviewers.

Hardware secrets was the only site I saw that gave it horrible reviews. They complained about the unit not being able to supply 750W at high temps.
Yet on TT's website, it only guarantees 750W output at 40* celcius.
Hardware secrets pushed the temps way higher then that.

Even HW secrets, the site that gave it horrible reviews said that the build quality was decent.
Um.. GOOD reviews?? That unit is crap!
Too bad I only found that out AFTER I bought it

This PSU is a 550W unit. I wonder how the heck is it able to support a 4Ghz i7 and a 5870.

Replace it immediately if you can.

Because the system is pulling less than 400W
