The Toughpower 750W power supply just looks cool! The gloss black finish is near flawless. Too bad it'll remain hidden in your case. Sturdily built, it’s SLI and Dual-Core ready, but really shines in CrossFire testing! Most important in any PSU is the 12V rail supply. Most components pick up off of that rail. The Toughpower has four separate +12V rails so you're guaranteed crisp, clean power delivery. Each one of these four rails can handle 18 Amps of overload before a safety shutdown occurs.

The mirror effect housing, temperature auto control, silent 140mm fan, and Noise Preventive Silicon Pad help reduce vibrations and noise emissions, increase airflow and cooling and, thus improve performance. Universal Input, along with ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V compliancy, ensures that you can use it in a variety of situations and almost everywhere, without worrying about input voltages.

One Main connector (20 + 4 pin), one 12V (P4), one 12V (8pin), eight peripherals, six SATA, two Floppy, and two PCI-E connectors will cover all your components. Four next generation +12V rails support high-end PC systems and twinned graphics cards. This is a heavy-duty, serious power supply designed to bring you enough power for any potential configuration and a great value. Get one today, and let your foes feel the power!

4 out of 5 eggsLasted 7 1/2 years

Pros: It just died this morning. I purchased it from here in Aug of 2006 and the desktop ran mostly 24/7. It outlasted 3 motherboards and 3 video card upgrades, so I would call that a good run.

Cons: Is not modular.

1 out of 5 eggsOne of the worst expensive Power Supplies

Pros: Worked great when it worked.

Cons: Only worked for about a year or so and that was with the Thermaltake 150 Graphics power supply running in concert to take the graphics load off the Toughpower. I would not call it a Toughpower, I would call it a No-Power as it does not work and I have a power supply from NewEgg that cost me 40 bucks that has worked for the last 4 years without fail, my toughpower is a paper weight and has been for the last 5 years or so. Which is rediculous. It lived just long enough to be out of warranty.

Other Thoughts: I expected much more from Thermaltake. I have now switched to all Corsair Power supplies. Gold Series.

2 out of 5 eggsNot-So-Tough--Tough Power 750

Pros: Appears very sturdily made, 200 mm fan

Cons: Non-Modular, Not to mention, I have a 20 dollar cheapo that has lasted longer than this thing. I was going through some old parts doing some "early" spring cleaning and came across this thing. It has been dead for several years. It was connected to an Asus Striker II Extreme, 8 Gig's of Corsair and a Quad Core. I now have a cheapo 1000Watt that cost 20 bucks on the Bay and it has run the system longer that this "Power Supply??" did. I paid 279 for this one new and it lasted less than two years. It was in a Thermaltake Cube with 13 Fans and I also have the 300W Thermaltake Video Card add on Power Supply so my total TT power was well over 400 dollars and only the Video card one still runs just perfect. I have now moved to corsair power supplies when I used to be Thermaltake all the way. I am very UN-Impressed with the longevity of this Power Supply. Thus very UN-impressed with Thermaltake in general. I have even moved away from their CPU fans. Now I run Tunia and a couple others. But all my Thermaltakes are box decorations in storage.

Other Thoughts: Back in the day, when this first went caput, I emailed Newegg and they told me tough luck, it was out of warranty, by less than 30 days. LOL. Nice, a 300 dollar PSU and I'm done. I must say though, New Egg has always treated me right so I would assume that it is a Thermaltake issue. I even sold my Cube for 100 bucks and went with an old Alien Ware case and a couple Cooler Masters.

5 out of 5 eggs12/5/2007 to now

Pros: Very long cables, very long lifespan.
Has ran an overclocked Intel Dual Core w/ a Geforce 8800 GT and 5 hard drives 24/7 since 2007! That's a lot of stable volts!

Cons: Developed a fan rattle after 2-3 years; couldn't give a care about that when I see what my dollars have yielded.

Other Thoughts: I don't know if I'll replace it for an AM3+ build or not... it's loved me so long!

5 out of 5 eggsRuns Great and Lasts a LONG time.

Pros: Well my brother got this PSU in his old computer he purchased maybe 5 years ago. He used it daily for a couple years then gave it to my mother and she used it here and there for photo editing for another few years. Recently I took this PSU out and slapped it into my rig which needed an upgrade after I improved some of the hardware in it. The thing is just fantastic compared to dinky Thermaltake TR2 430w I was running.

This 5 or 6 year old 750w is running my nForce 780i SLI with and E8400 OC @ 3.6, 3 SATA HDD, 8Gb RAM and a Geforce GTX 260. I had not OC the Vid card cause the old PSU was under budget for it. Now I am well over and might pick up another for SLI :) Yay. As far as noise I dont really notice much. I have 2 Exhaust fans (top and rear) a front intake fan, a northbridge fan and a big fat Freezer 7 Pro on the CPU and it all stays pretty quiet imo. Although I do have an Antec P180B mid tower case which has decent sound insulation. Defiantly a great psu.

Cons: 8pin connector could be an inch or 2 longer for big cases with space between the mobo mount plate and the back plate to run them.nobody likes to show wires right :)

but it works with a little stretching and angling so Not really a con so much as an "i wish"

Other Thoughts: Good buy

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful and Reliable

Pros: I've had this power supply for about five years now. I have left it on pretty much 24/7 for those five years and still use it like that now. I've used it in a few different builds. I am extremely happy with it. It has more than enough power for anything I have used it for, and it has always been 100% reliable and stable.

It's a nice looking power supply and nice to see that they they put the labeling on the side right side up. So that the side labeling isn't upside, unlike so many other power supplies. It definitely looks good in a case with a window side panel.

The full black nylon mesh over the cables and the black connectors is a nice touch.

Cons: The fan is low noise but not completely silent. This is only a small issue for people who are looking for a 100% silent build. I only notice it, because I have the PC on top of my desk and have gone out of my way to put in completely silent case fans, CPU fan, and video card.

I would have loved to have seen a power supply fan speed connector, but this is just minor preference.

When I had this power supply in a top mounted case the cords were plenty long enough for all the connections. Now that I am using a bottom mounted case for the power supply the cords reach, but it's a tight strech in my mid-tower case.

Other Thoughts: I wish I had spent the extra money to get the modular version of this power supply, but I was talked out of it by a technician who advised non-modular was a better/safer choice.

System Information:
ASUS Striker II Extreme MB, 3.0 GHz Core 2 Duo E8400, ASUS Royal Knight CPU cooler, Arctic Silver 5, 4 x 2GB OCZ RAM, 2 x WD 500GB RAID drives in mirror, EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX+ SC 512MB, 2 x Lite-On DVD-RW burners, 3.5" drive w/ memory card reader, Rosewill Challenger mid-tower, Thermaltake Toughpower 750W PS, Win 7 Ultimate 32-bit.

5 out of 5 eggsALL 3 TIMES IT'S A CHARM

Pros: What's not to like here? This thing has all the power I need, it's quiet, and it has every connector you need!
I am a DJ & I have built 3 Desktops now, the first being over a yr ago, and these babies work so good I have this bad boy in All 3 of my towers and I have never had any problem @ all!
I run a DJ Program, A Karaoke program and then I also use WM Player for videos for my shows & so far so great! I have had 4 karaoke folders open with everything else plus the video folder and there is no hesitation @ all ever! My rigs all have around 3.4 TB hard drive & 8 gigs of ram!
This $104 price is pretty insane considering the quality & quantity of power it provides!

Cons: They aren't free!

Other Thoughts: I am gonna buy another one before they're all gone!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The PS has a very quiet fan compared to other PS's I've used in the past. The design is slick and flashy. Thermaltake has definately included enough connections to get power to all devices.

Cons: It would be nice if they included some sort of cable management with the PS. I considered the purchase to be a high-end product and didn't mind spending a few extra bucks to get something worthwhile. In other words I wouldn't mind spending a few more bucks for them include some cable management with the PS.

5 out of 5 eggsrock solid

Pros: Rock solid performance from day 1 to 3+ years now.
Never ever any questionable behavior from this PSU.
Will reach everything in my P180 case except as noted below.

Cons: Not modular.
Price could be better, but I feel I got my money's worth.
The 4 pin m/b connector could be longer. I have mine running over the expansion cards, never found an extender.

Other Thoughts: Friends thought I was crazy when I put out 190 for a psu, but my build proved out with 3 years of flawless performance, minus 1 74g raptor which just died.
Antec P180b case
W0117RU 750w PSU
Gigabyte P35-DS3R m/b
Intel Core2-Quad 9400
XFX nVidia 8800 Ultra graphics card (with arctic cooling fan set)
4x 1gb Corsair Dominator DDR2-800 (no fan)
1x Plextor DVD +/- RW combo (pata)
4x Western Digital 74gb Raptors sata-1(two raid 0 arrays)
1x Western Digital 250gb IDE (pata) (vantec ez-swap)
1x Western Digital 500gb SATA (vantec ez-swap)
Zalman 9500 cpu cooler.

Nothing OC'd, runs cool on air, not quiet, but not a jet engine. 5x 120mm antec tri-cools in case.
Processor never gets more than 10deg farenheit over room temp, case temp never more than 104deg farenheit after 4-6 hours straight gaming.
First ran with Vista-Ultimate 64, then XP 32, back to Vista-Ultimate 64, and now with Windows 7 ultimate 64

Originally had an E6600, Q9400 on F13 bios up

5 out of 5 eggsTough is Right

Pros: Lots of power for new and old PCI-E cards and stable power to components and Mobo. Not once had any problem with this PSU

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you plan on using Tri-Sli, look at an even more powerful PSU, this is great for my two Asus Geforce 275's
