Its a lower-end unit from TT. Its a mislabeled 450W and doesn't deliver the rated 500W. So I wouldn't say its garbage as it justifies its price tag.

Since Thermaltake's naming convention is confusing, you gotta go by the Wxxxx number on the label to know exactly what you're dealing with... W0093 is a low-end CWT. I think it's a DSA platform, not great.

That's one of the garbage ones.

The Toughpowers have been great for me, dependable for years on high-power systems. I'm not sure about the TR series but judging from their pricepoint (if I'm looking at the right one) they should be better than BFG, XFX and that kind of crap.

XFX units all range from good to awesome.

Sorry sir but XFX are great power supplies AFAIK. Idk about BFG, maybe they used to be good too but nowadays they mean nothing.

BFG had very few good models. XFX had very few flops. Thermaltake is a good name, but unfortunately that is how they sell their lower end units: their name. The TR series is not a great series. I'd recommend returning it and picking up something better if possible; the last thing you should skimp on to save money on is the PSU.

:edit:

you can currently get this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139005

for a great price, and then get some money back with a MIR.

Unfortunately he cannot return it since he got this computer from a friend. All built and ready. I know which PSUs are good and I'd easily choose something high-end in case he asked me to, but he doesn't plan on replacing this PSU. The only reason I asked this is because I don't want his PSU to explode lol (he doesn't give a crap about PSUs)

Best not to pay attention to 2thAche, he's posted a few times in the PSU forum over the past couple of weeks, every post was a load of crap.
