Thermaltake Toughpower DPS 850 W
11 November 2013
Summary: As I expected, the DPS-850 performed marvelously thanks to the digitally controlled platform it utilizes, yet it obviously isn't only the digital control that boosts its performance. Its cutting-edge analog part and quality components also play their role. However, the combination of all the above had a tremendous affect on its price. At 200 bucks, it is one of the most expensive 850 W PSUs on the market today.
Pros: Resilient to high operating temperatures, Excellent ripple suppression, Extra-tight voltage regulation, Efficient, Good performance in Advanced Transient Response tests, Quiet operation, Software for fan speed control and monitoring of all PSU activities, Fully modular, High build quality, Accuracy of the DPSApp software (especially in current output), 7-year warranty
Cons: High price, Only one EPS connector, Lower than required hold-up time, Found a damaged cap on the modular PCB (which, however, doesn't seem to affect performance), The 24-pin cable should consist of less ribboned cable strips
Excerpt: Thermaltake comes to us today with an exciting new product. One that I have personally been waiting for ever since Corsair came along and dropped the AX860i at our doorsteps. Folks, we now have a second 850 watt class unit on the market able to be monitored and controlled via software through a USB port. Let's get right to it and see if this bad boy has what it takes to topple Corsair off the throne.
