Great PS Overall

Michael R., Newegg
16 September 2011
  • Summary: My old build (4 and a half years old) is running a Toughpower 650W PSU, and still going strong. PC was on almost 24/7 and was not used lightly (lots of load on the graphics card and processor, and was powering 7 120mm fans and 4 7200RPM HD's). This is what made me buy another Toughpower.
  • Pros: - 875W - Bronze Certified - Modular - Thermaltake Toughpower Product Line
  • Cons: - Expensive, but you get what you pay for. Power supply is one thing I won't skimp on. - The CPU Power connector also has a PCIe 8-Pin connector that branches off from it, which in any normal situation would have been very cool to cut down on the amount of cables, but they literally made the wire...

good when good

Kelli D., Newegg
8 September 2011
  • Summary: like i said in the title...its only good when its good but when it went bad it took several other components with it when it fried.
  • Pros: this power supply worked great for the 1year and 7 so months that i had it. didnt give me any problems.
  • Cons: died before the 2 year mark which doesnt make this psu tough at all. when the psu went out i think it took my vid card, mobo, and memory with it because none of those components are working correctly anymore.

The sound is normal!

Chris C., Newegg
25 January 2011
  • Summary: Owned and have been using this since October 2010 (currently almost Feb 2011) Pc Specs: Core i7 950 Bloomfield (Socket 1366 default clock @ 3.02 Ghz) 3x2 GB (6 GB) DDR3 Tripple Channel Corsair XMS 3 Ram Asus P6T Deluxe V2 Socket 1366 Motherboard Lite-On Blu-ray drive 2 X 500GB Western Digital HDD 1...
  • Pros: When I first opened the box and hooked this sucker up it made a hissing noise for almost a day like other people said it would. BUT THIS IS COMMON AND OK FOR A NEW PSU. I left my PC on for a full 2 days because I was at work doing a crazy shift and away from the house. When i came back, the noise...
  • Cons: The bottom line is this: If a PSU makes a hissing noise and it's 5-6 years old then it's telling you it's about to die. If a PSU makes a hissing noise and it's less than a week old, it's telling you it's breaking in it's new shoes.

Not Happy

David J., Newegg
1 October 2010
  • Pros: Modular design. Large fan.
  • Cons: I am somewhat skeptical about reviews sometimes, especially some of the negative ones. However, I now have my own negative review to post. Purchased this item on August 23, 2010. Worked great----until yesterday when I turned my computer on and after about 3 minutes, the computer shut off and I sm...

XT TPX-875M

MICHAEL E., Newegg
24 August 2010
  • Summary: I have the 775w version which worked fine out of the box but the 875w version did die after 1 hour. luckly no other parts of my computer died with it. I took off 1 egg for the first dead PSU.
  • Pros: Good price with combo and rebate. Great reviews on this new model design and features.
  • Cons: First one worked for 1 hour then died. The replacement is working now 24 hours and seems to be ok.

Don't trust Thermaltake's Rebates

R J., Newegg
23 August 2010
  • Pros: Lots of cables.
  • Cons: When I bought it there was a rebate offered. Nobody bothered to mention that Thermaltake makes you submit them 20 days after PURCHASE instead of the usual standard 30 days. This nice little trick I'm sure pays them well to employ. I generally have liked NewEgg but they wouldn't do anything. While...

Thermaltake, The Best

Chris C., Newegg
22 August 2010
  • Summary: Fantastic Wattage/Amperage headroom, and because of its efficiency you can easily run a system with Dual HD 5870s, a core i7 1366, Multiple HD/SSD, fans, coolers, LED lights, etc. The highest estimates of power consumption by today's highend products will still have breathing room in this baby.
  • Pros: As always, this is a Thermaltake PSU, so it's of great quality. This is from their Toughpower XT line, which is one of their highest quality model brands. The price is right, of course. $184.99 currently. 875 W is a perfect amount of headroom for SLI/Crossfire setups. Also this is modular which i...
  • Cons: This has nothing to do with Thermaltake, but in fact the overall design of the PSU which every manufacturer used on many of their PSUs. I don't like single 12V rails. Sure, it's simpler because you don't have to balance power hungry hardware over multiple lines, but in a design scheme, it's still...

Didn't Work

Robert B., Newegg
27 July 2010
  • Summary: Heard of people getting DOAs, and it looks like I got one. If you're considering getting this power supply, might want to look at ones that users aren't saying come DOA otherwise you might be out $10 shipping.
  • Pros: Has pretty lights
  • Cons: Bought this power supply with a combo deal and when I went to install it, it powered up for 2 minutes then completely died. Doing an RMA now hoping that the second one they send me works longer than the 1st one.
