5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: I bought this on 9/9/2007 and it is still running strong.

Currently using to power a GIGABYTE GV-N780GHZ-3GD GeForce GTX 780 , i7-2600k overclocked to 4.0 , 2 ssd and 2 hard drives with no issues as of yet.

Cons: lol none.

Other Thoughts: If this thing dies tomorrow its still the money I have ever spent on a computer part and I will be looking at the current 1000w Thermaltake Toughpower and going with that.

5 out of 5 eggsVery well built - Owned since 10/2007

Pros: I've moved this PSU from system to system since October of 2007. It's a very solidly built unit. Since buying this, I've bought nothing but Thermaltake PSU's for other systems that I've built.
I highly recommend this model and brand!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Would be nice if it was 100% modular.
It's expensive, but worth every penny. I paid $329 back in 2007 from Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsStill kicking at 4.5 years

Pros: Still working after 4.5 years and still kicking.

Cons: Still cost a lot but I guess you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Think im up to my 3rd build now on this unit. now running a AMD 1090T at 3.6G on water along with my old x2 4870 video card. Hoping to make the 5 year mark soon

1 out of 5 eggsCAUGHT ON FIRE! Thermaltake didn't care!

Pros: When catches on fire it is highly noticeable. Burnt electronic smell is very distinct!

Cons: Worked for under a year. When it died, it sent a strong surge that killed 2 hard drives, drive backplane, raid controller, and a fan; then it decided to catch on fire. Thermaltake wouldn't replace, service, or even discount on another unit. I offered it up to them so they could understand why it occurred and prevent it in future products. They didn't want it and could careless that it killed as much hardware as it did. I will never buy another one of their products!

Other Thoughts: I purchased CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-1000HX and LOVE IT! It is even more quite.

5 out of 5 eggsIn for the Long Haul...Keeps on Truckin'

Pros: I've owned this for about 2 years now. Never one problem or hangup. Works like none I've ever owned.

I also own a 600W and like a 400 W,,, I sold those and those people on E-Auction site are still happy. That's after I rode them long and hard for what it's worth.

Cons: pricey, but I'll get over that.

Other Thoughts: As it is pricey, it is worth the money.

those getting bad ones, sorry. I find this to be an absolute necessity to my rendering workstation.
Hope Thermaltake is taking care of your needs. at this price, they should be right on it.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: This has to be the nicest power supply I have every owned.
Due to its modular design, the only have the cords int the case are the ones that are being used. Hooked up a ATI FireGL 8600 without any problems.
Some of the criticisms of the other reviews I would consider minor.
- The silicone gasket was easy to install.
- The restarting function pauses the power supply for about 5-10 seconds in the power off state before delivering power again to the motherboard.

A simple velcro pouch is provided to keep all you cables that you do not use, so you can find them if you need them at a later time.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWorth Every penny!

Pros: Plenty of power for anything you have going. Strong Standby rail for those picky motherboards.

Cons: huh? LOL

Other Thoughts: Best Bang for the buck. I used others PSU in this wattage class . This one is the strongest without question. Cheers!

5 out of 5 eggsShear thing of beauty

Pros: This PSU is very efficient , and the rail stay rock hard on the voltage assignments. Problem SB voltage issue didn't occur withthis PSU since it's resistance to large drops in voltage from the intial draw.

Cons: All Black connetion in the future? Maybe? Other than that, none

Other Thoughts: If you upgrading from another PSU. May as well set you bios to default ans start from scratch. The Voltages of you old unit will be elevated when you try to power up with the old values set in bios
So, if you on the bead, on power setting. Set it to Defualt then change it back after booting back up with this PSU.

5 out of 5 eggs10 months, Rock Solid Still!

Pros: It does exactly what I need it to do; provide power where it is needed and cables can be left in box if not needed as this is a modular system!

No Failures or any signs of inferiority. I think this is King for it's power Watt Level. Especially the company it's being produced by.
I keep mine running almost all the time and often run all the elements of my machine, which I won't give details,,,under full strain and load and it doesn't even flinch!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: it is quite unfortunate that some have experienced the stories I've read; I understand that we received products that are DOA or don't last long. I've been there.
This is an absolutely Rock Solid product if you get a good one ,,,, so don't get a bad attitude if it arrives and provides a few problems. Life is not perfect. Neither are any items created in life. Electronics especially. So roll with the flow and take care of business, do what you need to do to get the job done,,,,,eventually, you'll receive the product I'm describing. It is worth the struggle and slight anger to finally experience the full Power of this PSU!
