Summary: Now two weeks after build and am very satisfied with the Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 850W TPG-850M SLI and CrossFire X Ready power supply. I call this a semi-modular PS because the two main mobo power supply wires come already attached (black color), peripheral wires for PCI card devices (mainly graphic units) and for SATA devices (mainly hard drives or disk drives) can be inserted as needed. These peripheral wires are also black.
Summary: I ordered this PSU for my new gaming and video editing rig. I needed something that would provide stable, clean current, keep itself cool (for longevity as well as not adding more heat than absolutely necessary to my case), and something that would add to the look of the inside of my case (CM Storm Stryker). The TT Toughpower Grand fit this bill at a decent price. I am reviewing the 850W version.
Summary: It even came with something I never saw before. Rubber cushions to isolate the frame of the desktop from the PSU. Put them between the back of the computer and put the screws through the cushions into the PSU. Little tricky installing it as my case is older and the PSU is on top not bottom. It is working great though.
Summary: I chose this power supply because the device cables are plug in type. This refines cabling a system with just what you need in terms of cabling with no extras clogging up your case. This really helps improve airflow and can keep your case cooler. Since I am overclocked, I don't need any unnecessary cables restricting airflow. I am extremely pleased with my purchase.
Summary: Just like everything else Thermaltake puts their name on, the Grand 850W is a premium product. -Very well packaged -Cables appear high-end and all of them are nicely braided -Separate pouch for storing un-used cables -Semi-Modular design allows for exceptional cable management -Fan is very quite, but powerful -The silicon/rubber 3m strips do a marvelous job to ensure no gaps in the back of the case when mounted
Summary: I bought this product to replace my previous power supply and this is an excellent power supply with it being modular: Pros: efficient SLI certified Enough power, PCI-e, and peripheral connectors Cons: Lacks an extension cable for 8-pin/4+4-pin CPU connection : Has a 8-pin, 4+4-pin CPU power connectors [non-modular] There is need for an 4+4-pin/ 8-pin extension cable since the cable on the power supply was unable to reach my CPU power connector on the Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe...
Summary: Awesome unit. This thing runs so quiet, no issues with cabling or connectors. My CPU fan runs louder than the fan in this. I would recommend this PSU to anyone who is serious about their gaming rig. It's not super expensive and will power any current technology in any setup.
Excellent Quality! Great Performance!! Super Price!!!

Summary: Look no further, I wasn't expecting much since I didn't know much about this PSU, but for the price I took a shot. All I can say is WOW!!! This PSU would be a great a great value at $200. Near silent, excellent packaging, superb looks, and its built like a brick but most important it gives very stable power. This is the best PSU $$ for $$ on the market, hands down. I have dealt with Thermaltake customer support, and it is legendary good.
