5 out of 5 eggsGreat PS

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: This thing has more connectors than any PS I have ever owned. Two 6P for video, 4 SATA, 4 PATA. Black. No LED's. Long cables that are nicely sleeved. Snagged on sale for $44.99

Cons: Fan is audible, but not loud. Not modular. Not free.

Other Thoughts: Mounted in an NmediaPC 6000b ATX HTPC case. The fan is the loudest in the case, but my 7.1 Receiver covers it up.

5 out of 5 eggsThermaltake TR-500 PSU

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: I bought this powersupply back in the beginning of December of 2013. Along with this PSU i bought an Asus AMD Radeon R9 270 graphics card. This powersupply has NEVER let me down. No loud noises like other reviews say, and works 110%. I paid i believe $49 for it? Maybe cheaper. Very impressed with this PSU.

Cons: None at all!

5 out of 5 eggsSuddenly very loud

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: Amazing PSU. The 500 watt version is enough to power my medium gaming rig. It's very quiet even under stress.

I haven't had any issues with it till now.

Cons: A few months into use it suddenly starts to sound like a small engine, like a lawn mower.. It's nerve racking.. I have checked it with a flashlight for anything hitting the fan. It is fastened in snugly. And it's not vibrating. I have no idea why it is doing this, I have't had any hardware changes.

Other Thoughts: Besides the fan noise issue I had. This is a great little PSU. I would suggest it to anyone looking to build their own machine.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
Please contact Customer Service if you feel that the noise level is not acceptable,
as we can replace it through warranty service.

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: very good PS for the money. I picked it up on sale and am very happy with the result, works well, very quiet!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I installed this into a case with the PS on the bottom and the cables were long enough to reach, and works very well.
