The Thermaltake TR2 (W0093RU) is a 500 Watt power supply unit ideal for high-end multi-card systems. Perfectly blending power, price, and functionality, and compatible with the ATX12V 2.0 standard, it's a sharp value and a powerful player. The high efficiency design (which saves power) and the large 120 mm fan keeps it up and running under the most strenuous circumstances. The unique design and position of the fan optimizes airflow while reducing noise. The side air vents and mirror-casing design further increase airflow and also enhance cooling considerably.

One main connector (20 + 4 pin), one 12V (P4), one PCI-E, eight peripheral, four SATA, and two floppy connectors are more than enough for all your components. Active PFC improves efficiency, and over current, over voltage, and short-circuit protection shield your critical components from errant power fluctuations. The LED indicator indicates whether the power supply is in standby mode (orange) or is running normally (green). The TR2 500W supports both Intel and AMD-based systems.

Thermaltake is known for steady reliable power and great cooling. This one's no exception.

  • newegg ATX12V v2.0 Compatible Compatible with the ATX12V v2.0 standard, the THERMALTAKE TR2 provides maximum power stability to drive the latest Intel and AMD processors as well as other system components.
  • newegg 500W Maximum Power A maximum power of 500W delivers safe, reliable output for high-end computer systems.
  • newegg Black Cable Sleeving This power supply's cables are wrapped in black sleevings to optimize air flow and improve cooling in the case.
  • newegg Quiet Operation A 120mm fan delivers whisper-quiet cooling and ensures quiet operation through fan speed adjustments in response to load conditions.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Power Supply, Still Running 6 Years After Installation

Pros: Quiet
Powerful
Easy installation
Long enough cables for a large Lian-Li case.

Cons: Slightly louder than it was when I originally installed; but still thats nitpicking since it is 6+ years old!

5 out of 5 eggsStill going @ 3+ years.

Pros: Inexpensive Quiet enough to sit on my desk without bothering me. Performed faithfully for 3+ years at this point with no issues. I've used this PSU in two PC builds, and perhaps will use in a third. I would recommend this product.

Cons: I could use more cables myself, but it certainly meets the needs of most.

Other Thoughts: It may be noteworthy that this PSU has resided on a UPS line for it's entire life, which I also recommend to everyone as I believe it very likely contributed to it's health.

Current build:
Intel Pentium D 3.22ghz, 1x GeForce 8800 GTS, 4x 512mb DDR RAM, 2x internal IDE HDDs, 2x internal SATA HDDs, 1x internal SATA SSD, 2x external HDDs via USB, 2x CD/DVD burners, 2x 80mm case fans, 1x 120mm case fan.

5 out of 5 eggsAfter 3+ years, still going strong

Pros: Bought this back in September 2006. It has been going strong for all these years without a single hitch. Just wanted to let everyone know since I saw a few reviews saying it crapped out.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Back on 09/15/06 I bought this along with:
-Abit AT8 32x
-Athlon 64 x2 3800+
-2 GB Corsair DDR PC3200
-Sapphire X1900XT
-Auzentech X-Plosion

I had replaced the X1900XT with a X1950XTX and have been using this as my main gaming rig. I still can play many games @ 1080p resolutions on MAX settings. The new Batman game runs pretty well, Crysis sucks, Source engine games run great, Guild Wars easy, Burnout Paradise flies, Need for Speed Shift runs choppy.

5 out of 5 eggsGood replacement in a pinch

Pros: Stays quiet with the automatic fan speed control, looks nice with the mirror finish and wrapped cables, no power issues so far running at about 80% (400W) of max load.

Cons: Not a lot of fancy features.

Other Thoughts: I bought it to replace a toasted PSU in my old Athlon XP system, made possible by the 20+4 ATX connector. It's worked flawlessly for 10 months now but is connected to a UPS.

1 out of 5 eggsFail once, shame on you, fail twice shame on me

Pros: A well performing PSU that does everything it claims, except have long longevity.

Cons: Original PSU was purchased to replace the one that came with a normal case when the system was originally built, lasted for around 16 months and died under warranty, RMA'd it to Thermaltake and used the replacement until it died tonight during a reboot, lasted about 2 years.

Other Thoughts: I've been working with computers for 15 years and have never had a PSU fail on me before these two Thermaltakes in the same system. As I see this is now a common occurrence with many other reviewers I am also going to have to say that I am done with purchasing anything from Thermaltake.

2 out of 5 eggsBought 2 and 2 failed after 2.5 years

Pros: Worked great until they failed.

Cons: Bought two of these power supplies for two builds in Q4 2006. One supply failed about a month ago and the other one failed yesterday.

Other Thoughts: Both failures were the same: Computers were off but plugged in, an electrolytic cap popped in the power supply followed by a small amount of smoke from the power supply. No damage to the computers. Switched out both supplies. Computers work fine now, but I'm done with Thermaltake.

2 out of 5 eggsfirst psu died on me

Pros: good while it was working.

Cons: died in about 1.5 years with *light* usage -- I mainly use my laptop. It's the first psu died on me after owning 10+ computers.

Other Thoughts: I took it apart and kept the fan, it makes a good toy for my son.

1 out of 5 eggsFan Problems

Pros: It worked for 1.5 yrs.

Cons: PSU fan some how reversed rotation along with some case fans. Scary, huh?

Other Thoughts: The psu is the hottest item in a computer. My video card got upset and sent me a nasty message saying- " either he goes or I go".

3 out of 5 eggsPS_ON voltage failed after a couple years

Pros: Lasted about 2 1/2yrs into a 5 year warranty which apparently is pretty decent for a low price psu. Up until recently it never had any noted problems. Used ABIT EQ to track voltages off and on and everything stayed in range.

Cons: PS_ON voltage problems after that 2 1/2yr period. Voltage while running dropped to 0.08 so computer could not shut down PSU. Had to shutdown system by using the power switch on the PSU itself.
And yes, it took a massive amount of frustrating BIOS updating, software/driver updating and undoing, ACPI investigating and various internet searching to finally come up with the solution.

Other Thoughts: In the future, I'll definitely pull out a multimeter and assume the psu is faulty and test accordingly.
Not sure it's worth the shipping cost to RMA it to Thermaltake. It'd be almost half as much in shipping charges to get a refurb as it would be to get a new (with rebate) replacement.
So, 3 eggs for doing what it was supposed to do, but for not lasting through the warranty period.

5 out of 5 eggsNeat power supply

Pros: I was a little worried when my graphics card said it needed at least a 600W power supply, but this has worked just fine. It's effecient. The cable management is real nice. The black shields melt into the shadows, and the box is quite organized inside.

Cons: There aren't two 6-pin connectors for PCI-E.

Other Thoughts: This is a solid power supply. Quiet.
