Is Thermaltake a reputable brand for a Power supply?

I want to make sure that I get a good power supply that won't damage my PC's other parts. I've selected this part https://m.newegg.com/products/N82E16817153187?ignorebbr=1&_ga=2.57000042.1320216 24.1544071502-1968024942.1501284214&_gac=1.223483241.1544071502. CNHU9Mayit8CFd2KxQIduFgJtg for my power supply, is this safe for my computer or will it damage it in less than a year? Someone said that you need a good power supply to make your PC last more than a year, so I'm checking to make sure I don't get a bad one for my PC.

Thermaltake dont make any of the units they sell they like almost every other brand has their stuff made in China by a third party OEM
With that being said most of the stuff Thermaltake sells is mediocre at best and crap at worst and they only have a few good units here and there

The answer to your question in short is no and the one you picked is not all that great and there are much better options such as the Seasonic Foucs or even the Corsair CX

I would personally only pick Thermaltake PSU for their look, they have some designs others dont have on some of their units. But quality is very meh, I used to have one a looong time ago and was for sure not impressed. These days I stick to EVGA, Corsair, Silverstone or Seasonic in all my personal builds (I have too many computers).

SilverStone and EVGA are not worth buying either as almost all their stuff is mediocre or worse

Use the PSU database here: http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_a...wDatabase.html


Thermaltake doesn't have a great track record and in the past they were known as "Thermalfake"


The reason why I greatly prefer buying Seasonic PSUs is they make their own PSUs, whereas brands other than Superflower or FSP don't.

Why do they have a mediocre track record? Did their old PSUs have a high failure rate? What failures usually happened with them?

Many of their older units where made by OEM´s such as HEC an OEM that made very few good models and a ton of junk
The old TT TR2 and TR 2 RX are case in point with the later being so bad that they cant do their rated wattage and stay inside ATX specifications

As they always say, do not go by the brand of the PSU, find out the OEM (Manufacturer) of the PSU and that is the proper indication if a unit is solid or not. Big brand names does not always correlate to a quality product.
