Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W Gold Power Supply Review
10 November 2014
Summary: Thermaltake has traditionally shined when it comes to computer power supplies in excess of 1000 watts. But in the past these power supplies have often been very costly. Today we cover Thermaltake's new 1200 watt power supply that is currently selling for $139 after $30 MIR.
Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200W Power Supply Review
16 November 2011
Excerpt: It's been awhile since we reviewed our last Thermaltake power supply so we were excited to see a new Toughpower Grand unit show up on our doorstep recently. Thermatake's new Grand series includes five models ranging from 650W up to 1200W.
Excerpt: We've seen some rather incredible units coming out lately in the greater than 1kW category. We saw the Corsair AX1200 come in and outperform excellent models half its size, and we saw the Antec HCP-1200 do the same thing.
Excerpt: The Grand is a dual 12v rail unit that has an unprecedented 125A between the two of them. Meeting the requirement for having an 80PLUS Gold rating, the unit promises to be a winner when it comes to stability and the reliability which is ever present in Thermaltake products.
Excerpt: It will not be the last by Thermaltake, true, but from our point of view still remains between those 3-4 most valuable and, considering the price, we wanted to tell ours. As you may have guessed from its power, the Toughpower 1200 is not for everyone, but for those who have a PC “extreme” and...
Summary: The Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W can excel with superb power delivery capability of up to 1200W. While I doubt any single system can even get close to that, it certainly gives you a nice headroom for overclocking. This headroom results in more stable voltages, than for example a 600W PSU.
Pros: Insane 1200W power, Modular, Four 12V rails with up to 36A each, Good voltage stability, All cables are sleeved, Rock solid construction, Lots of connectors, 8-pin VGA connectors, High efficiency, Good Looks
Cons: Expensive, Bigger than your standard ATX PSU: 200mm(L)x160mm(W)x86mm(H), Fan not temperature controlled - noisy
Conclusion: The ThermalTake 1200w ToughPower looks damn good on paper, and has a whole host of connectors capable of sending power to nearly anything you chuck at it. However, the issues with unstable performances aren’t a nice sight, and I can only hope that it’s a problem with just this unit.
Pros: A LOT of power, Large, quiet fan, Sleeved and modular cables
Excerpt: A diferencia de los fabricantes de procesadores como Intel y AMD que con cada nuevo modelo que lanzan al mercado, intentan reducir el consumo del sistema, los fabricantes de tarjetas gráficas parecen estar metidos en una dinámica completamente diferente: Cada nuevo modelo consume más que el anterior...
Pros: Creo que los méritos de esta fuente de alimentación son más que obvios y por ello se hace acreedora de la máxima distinción de este foro
Cons: A lo anterior hay que sumar una mayor preocupación por la eficiencia de las fuentes. La eficiencia de una fuente es el coeficiente entre la cantidad de potencia que toma la fuente de la toma de pared y la que es capaz de convertir en potencia real a suministrar a los componentes de nuestro sistem...
