An important tip from one of our users: don't just check total power output, find out what you need in the way of current on each power rail. If you need 20 A on your +12V rails and the supply only has 15A, it doesn't matter how many watts the supply puts out: don't buy it. Make certain that you have ENOUGH rails, too: sometimes, you need more than just two +12V rails for your setup.

Replacing an existing power supply is easier: just get a replacement that meets or exceeds the specifications of the old one. (You can usually find those printed on the side of the supply.)

That said, here's a power supply that is compatible with most ATX format motherboards, puts out 650 watts of power (see specifications for exact distribution). Could this be your next power supply?

5 out of 5 eggsPhenominal Power Supply

Pros: This is probably the best power supply I have bought. I love the Modular Interface, my last one had modular cords as well but there wasn't nearly as many connectors as this one. The rails are rock solid. It is pumping enough power to make me happy into my system. When the box arrived the box was humongous. I did not think it was going to fit inside my pc, but when I put it in it was pretty much the perfect size.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this Power Supply.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is the Perfect Replacement PSU

Pros: I have built a number of Micro-ATX PCs for friends using the APEVIA X-QPACK and QPACK2 cases which come with an OEM 420 Watt and 500 Watt PSU, respectively. Every last one of those OEM power supplies has failed with a year or two. So, given the extremely close space in those cases, I have used the ToughPower W0128RU power supplies as a replacement. They work wonderfully, and the modular cable system is really a blessing in those cramped spaces.

Cons: None, this PSU just plain works.

Other Thoughts: The original W0128RU units had a 6 pin video PCI power cable hardwired along with the main motherboard power cable, and a converter was supplied to make it 8 pins. Now, the latest ones are the other way around (8 pins to 6 pins). I wish they would have stayed with the original design. The pictures shown here by Newegg are incorrect with regard to this item having a 6 pin connector.

5 out of 5 eggsGood PSU

Pros: I like that I only use the power cables that are hooked to something, so there are less cables in the case allowing for more air flow. This is the first PSU I've owned like that. All the others I had the non-used power cords tied up out of the way.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsJust unlucky on this one

Pros: Modular, great brand, and I got a sick deal a while back on a combo with a video card. Has been working in my overclocked machine for some time now:
Watercooling: modded mcp-350 pump, 3 huge 120mm deltas on my triple radiator
E8400 @ 4ghz 24/7
Gigabyte X48T DDR3 Mobo
4GB OCZ DDR3 1600
2x raptors, 2x 30GB OCZ Vertex Raid 0
2x Samsung DVD burners
Radeon HD4890 1GB
SB X-Fi Fatality
2x 120mm case fans
1x pci slot fan
4x 12" cold cathode lighting
Fan controller

Cons: My system hasn't been 100% stable even though I swapped out my RAM several times (I try different sets all the time as I'm an OCer), and even though I'm stress test stable. I don't know if it's the PSU or not, but it could be.

What's the biggest CON of all is the freakin' fan!! It rattles and rattles... I know I could send it back to Thermaltake but:
#1- I don't want my machine down for that long, so I'd have to get a temporary PSU
#2- I do very clean work in my machines and a PSU takes me a while to neatly dismantle and put back together, zip-tie, hide cables behind things, etc.

Other Thoughts: I know this is a highly rated product. In fact, if you know anything about power supplies, this one is closer to the top of the list as far as build-quality and quality components.

Although my fan rattles, s*** happens and I'm willing to try this PSU again when I find the time to finally send this one back to Thermaltake

3 out of 5 eggsArrived dead

Pros: Once I got one that worked, it is great. Clean design, modularity is great, cables included are high quality with a lot of variety for different mo-bo configs or graphics cards. Runs relatively quiet and strong.

Cons: Our first unit arrived dead. I saw somebody else here had the same problem, so buyer beware. Newegg returns are as easy as driving to the nearest UPS store, but I was still very disappointed to get a mid-to-high grade Thermaltake power supply and have it be DOA. I very warily got a replacement unit (rather than switching brands), but am happy with the now-working replacement power supply.

Other Thoughts: The "noise-reducing" silicone shield included with this power supply did not fit in my case (an Antec 300-series gaming). I can't tell that it would have made much of a difference.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid performance.. but lacking in other areas

Pros: To be honest I've only had this for a few weeks, but it seems rock solid, not making any strange noises from the power regulation, and is overall just heavy. The 140mm fan cools off the whole chasis - which is good. for those people complaining that it does not have an exhaust: When you have such amount of air coming in such a tiny space, you don't need exhaust because air is forced out the sides.

Running a Dual E5520 system (was worried it would not work), but functioning fine and voltages are rock solid.

Cons: Fan is apparently brushing against something or is broken. This means I will need to choose between downtime (RMA and all) and voiding the warranty by opening this thing and replacing the fan (or placing whatever it's brushing against further away). There should be a way to replace the fan without voiding the warranty.

Flimsy SATA power connectors. One of them already broke. The plastic on them is so thin and fragile it's amazing. Considering everything else is very heavy and solid, it's pretty absurd.

Also attached PCIe is not necessarily welcome, as this is supposed to be "modular". Cables are VERY stiff, pretty much defeats the point of manageability, but this does not leave a Frankenstein of cables in my case as my other PSU does.

Other Thoughts: It's modular so it's good. I assume I can get replacement modular cables. Also there are WAY too many PCIe cables and not enough SATA cables.

It's nice and heavy though.

3 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Nice packaging. Looks like a great supply. Thermaltake reputation for quality.

Cons: Unit was DOA. Tried in 2 different desktops. Put originals back and all is well.

Other Thoughts: Should have waited. Wanted the 750. Newegg had a 24 hour sale on the 750. Could of had one for less than $100 after mail in rebate. Sometimes you get DOA's. It is part of life. Thermaltake is a solid company with great products. I'm a little bummed but will still get a TT at a later time.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Issues

Pros: Runs my whole system without an issue yet. Was a great value with MIR. Modular supply made for a much easier setup. Fairly quiet PSU.

Cons: I wish the 8 pin PCI-E connector was not hardwired. I am not using it because I have onboard video and it is just sitting in the case. Also as another reviewer said, cables are a little stiff, but thats not really a big deal.
