1 out of 5 eggsExploded and now my CPU, 2 video cards, and board is dead!!!

Pros: Worked great for 2 years and I loved it and bought all things thermaltake

Cons: Exploded and cost me roughly $3000 in hardware, I bought this because it was described as a high quality long life product that when it fails does not explode and ruin my life

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what brand I'm going to buy next but I'm definitely open to suggestions as I made a costly mistake with my last decision, just wish they designed it not to send full power through my system when it fails, and it worked like a cheap knockoff not what I expected from thermaltake

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: The power supply runs incredibly quite and delivers steady power. The modular cabling is amazing, allowing for the optimal power config and the least amount of clutter in your case.

Cons: So far I can't find any.

Other Thoughts: I've owned the unit for a little over 3 years now and I've not had an issue.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked well while it lasted

Pros: It was a very tough power supply. I originally bought it to put up with 3-way SLI and through all the stress I put it through gaming with triple 8800GTXs, +12V voltage was stable. For the last 3 years, it has seen a only a single video card and very mild use overall.

Cons: Died this morning, after 3.5 years of faithful use. It has been connected to a large industrial UPS all of its life. I know that's not much to complain about, but it sucks to be left hanging when it costed $400 to begin with and the fact that it hasn't been run hard for the majority of its life.

Other Thoughts: I will be trying a Corsair PSU this time.

5 out of 5 eggsTruely Tough Power

Pros: I have owned this powersupply since the 780i was brand new. It has run duel 8800GTS's on a old 775 yorkfield, then it ran 3 260 core 216's with that same yorkfield and then 3 470s with a i7 920 overclocked to 4.315ghz, with the 470's overvolted and overclocked. It is still running smooth and consistant.

Cons: um hmm. dull color?

Other Thoughts: The fan is massive and consistantly keeps it in proper operating temperatures.

2 out of 5 eggsGood power supply, BUT IT EXPLODES!!

Pros: Good power supply for the most part. Solid design, ran quiet, no power issues.

Cons: IT EXPLODED!! Not even joking, the thing literally blew out on me, and to be honest, I'm not sure speaker's volume control slipped off my desk and the headphone jack came into contact with the back of my case, creating a short apparently, and the power supply emitted a bright spark and a loud pop and shut off the computer. Luckily it did its job and didn't fry any of my other hardware, but anything that blows up from something as simple as a headphone jack grounding can't be good.

Other Thoughts: none

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We at Thermaltake apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. Please contact for warranty instruction.

5 out of 5 eggsReview 2.0

Pros: Roomy, has every option you could want.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: To mount the power supply (the Thermaltake Toughpower W0133RU, in my case), you have to use the mounting-plate included in the accessories box.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly but...

Pros: Works perfectly so far.

Cons: If you are buying an Antec 1200 case to go with this, make sure you know how to mount it ahead of time.
