Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W Gold Power Supply Review

[H] Enthusiast
10 November 2014
  • Summary: The Thermaltake TPD-1200M is the latest power supply that we have seen from Thermaltake . Over the years, we have seen a number of Thermaltake products including two other 1200W units. Today's TPD-1200M, though, is somewhat different as the base level Toughpower units have moved down Thermaltake's product offering scale to be no longer the absolute top of the heap.

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. Is it worth your hard earned dollars?

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200W Power Supply Review

PC Perspective
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. All of the Toughpower Grand series power supplies feature advanced circuitry design, high efficiency (80 Plus Gold certified), smart cable management, and come backed by Thermaltake's 7-year warranty.

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200W

16 June 2011
  • 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. Thermaltake would like to get in on that action, and has added a beefy 1200 watt 80 Plus Gold model to their Toughpower Grand series of units. I've got one on the test bench now... come in and bid it hello, won't you?

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200W Power Supply

7 January 2011
  • 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. Speaking of quality, Thermaltake is so confident in the Grand series that they are offering a very impressive 7 year warranty on them.

Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W Power Supply Video Review

20 October 2010
  • Summary: There's no surprise that the Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W Power Supply performs very well. With 1200 watts it's clearly not intended for the budget market, but rather the hardcore gamer. Having a multiple video card setup, lots of other hardware, and overclocking requires a power supply of this wattage to keep everything stable. This product also has a quiet 140mm fan, lots of sleeved modular leads, and looks excellent.

  • 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 require an “extreme” power output.

Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W

29 July 2007
  • 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. On the other hand you have to consider the price of $320 which is a lot of money, that could easily be spent on an upgrade that directly increases your performance.
  • 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

ThermalTake ToughPower 1200w

15 February 2011
  • 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. I can’t recommend this power supply due to the trouble we had during testing which is unfortunate as this has every ingredient for a top class PSU.
  • Pros: A LOT of power, Large, quiet fan, Sleeved and modular cables
  • Cons: Random crashes
