3 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU for the price but...

Pros: Provides more than enough power for your typical gaming system. Seems stable and cool.

Cons: SHEESH does this thing ramp up when under load. The fan sounds like a hovercraft. This PSU replaced an older Thermaltake 650m 80+ that was doing just fine. That particular PSU was dead quiet and solid. This thing however seems to have been a leaf blower in another life. Don't get me wrong, it stays cool, but under load it will dwarf the sound coming from any other fan in your system.

Other Thoughts: If you don't like gaming or your case happens to be located in another zip code, go for it. "Ultra silent fan" it is not. I don't know what Thermaltake considers silent these days but this is NOT it. My best guess is db ratings at Thermaltake are done by employees who have spent WAY too much time in the front row at Metallica concerts. If Quiet is your bag...take a pass.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good.

Pros: Excellent. Looks great. Gold Certified, so it should run cooler and use less electricity. No coil whine, as a matter of fact I don't think I've heard it at all.

Cons: Modular, but I didn't end up saving too much space.

Other Thoughts: Not cheap. I would not have gotten this had it not been on sale, but the stars aligned.

4 out of 5 eggsPossible fan malfunction

Pros: It works, doesn't get very hot. It is also pretty quiet. Despite the problem I've been having that I mention in the con, it works very well.

Cons: I heard a chirping noise one day and traced it to the PSU. I noticed the fan was not spinning. It claims that it should spin for a few seconds after shutdown as well, and it did not. I haven't seen it spin to this day, so I assume it is either not getting hot enough to need (questionable) it or it's broken.

Also, the documentation was quite poor with this unit.

1 out of 5 eggsBuzzing sound under load

Pros: Power seems sufficiently clean and stable. Cables are modular and sufficiently long to route behind a mobo tray in a mid-tower case. Comes with a superfluous little bag to store cables in.

Cons: After a few days I noticed it buzzes loudly when scrolling webpages or viewports in 3D modeling programs. Isolated the problem to this PSU. Usually a sign of cheap or defective capacitors/coils, and the ones in this are supposed to be good Japanese ones.

5 out of 5 eggsToughpower Going 5+ years!

Pros: Modular, has 20+4pin and 2x 6pin PCIe connections for new setups. Very Quiet, and have never had any power issues. Built this setup in 2006, upgraded in 2010 and decided not to spend $$ on my working PSU.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: My current setup (2010 upgrade)
NZXT Zero case (2006)
Thermaltake Toughpower 700W modular (2006)
ASUS Rampage III Formula LGA 1366 (2010)
Intel Core-i7 950 Bloomberg (2010)
12GB G.Skill+6GB G.Skill Tri-channel (2010)
Sapphire HD 5870 Eyefinity (2010)
couple 1TB western digital Caviar Blacks (2010)
2x BenQ 24" LED (2010)
2x Dell 17" LCD (pre-2006)
Logitech G110 (2010)
Everything else from previous builds 2006 or before, CD/DVD drive, various peripherals and case fans.

Don't believe anyone who says this PSU will fail on you, It is either a defective from start (do a newegg RMA) or it is user-error. My 2006 Toughpower 700 is running my LGA 1366 system at high performance with plenty of power to spare! I am building a MicroATX setup for a friend that will out perform my rig and 650W is overkill for the power efficiency in components these days. 70W processors, and the "high power" ones at 130W, its incredible! Remember the days of people wanting Pentium 4 HT at 4GHZ, requiring mineral-oil submersion cooling and 1000W PSU for their 10x RAID 1-0 $$$$ 500GB hard drives. How far we have come lol.

My 2006 setup was an EVGA SLI mobo/vid, Core2 duo extreme setup with 8G Dominator OC RAM, 10k raptor HDDs and gave me more trouble than it was worth. ASUS, intel, Radeon is the way to go with minimal spending on anything else (RAM, HDD, etc.) Just look at what lasted since 2006, all of the cheaper stuff LOL

1 out of 5 eggsFailed

Pros: Price! Got it on Sale for $80.
Gold rated too!

Cons: Failed after 3 days.
Apparently Gold rating doesn't mean anything.

Other Thoughts: My system suddenly shutdown while playing a game. When I tried to restart it, it would shutdown as the windows started to boot up. Removing either the dvd drive or my secondary HD would allow the system to boot up without problems but if I connected an external HD or tried to reconnect the dvd or secondary HD the system would instantly shut off. I went to Best Buy and picked up a 600w Thermaltake PS to see if my PS was bad. The entire system with everything hooked up booted up and ran games and everything just fine. I reinstalled this Thermaltake PS and the same problem immediately reoccurred. Conclusion, the PS is bad. Currently in the process of RMA with newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent PSU...

Pros: Modular, very efficient, quiet and nice looking too!

4/8 pin cables are long enough to route behind motherboard tray, no extenders cables needed.

Comes extremely well packaged and has some nice accessories.

Cons: Could be a little cheaper :)

Other Thoughts: Fits really well in a CM Storm Enforcer case, looks great with the ASUS Crosshair V Formula and has ample power for all other components.

Little pricey but don't regret spending the money for it...
highly recommend this product.

This PSU
CM Storm Enforcer case
ASUS Crosshair V Formula
AMD 1100T Black Edition CPU
Arctic Cooler Freezer Pro 64 fan/HS
Radeon HD 6950 2 GB GPU
8GB GSkill Ripjaws Memory
OCZ Agililty 3 SSD
WD 640GB Black HDD

Makes for a decent gaming rig :)
