4 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU, but dead :(

Pros: all of the cables have a mesh shielding on them making them very aesthetically pleasing to look at and easy to handle when routing the wires inside of the case. This power supply worked great for the 40 days that I had this PSU with my AMD Phenom II x4 965 deneb processor, asus sabertooth 990fx rev 1.0 mobo, 2-SSDs, 1-seagate hdd, 1-evga 660ti superclocked ftw edition 2, and 6-led fans

Cons: died after 40 days of use, no overclocking has been done. and of course it's outside the newegg warranty, hence I am attempting to get a hold of thermaltake to get this puppy repaired/ replaced.

1 out of 5 eggsDead on Arrival

Pros: Looks like it would be pretty nice if it actually worked. Packaging is simple and practical.

Cons: Didn't work out of the box, fans don't spin up or anything. Tried multiple outlets, definitely dead. Far less of an issue but also something to consider, it's not modular, so you'll have unused cables in the case.

Other Thoughts: May want to consider getting an extended warranty on this thing.

5 out of 5 eggsEfficient quiet power

Pros: 42 Amp on 12v so its enough to power any of the current high end single GPU cards and some of the mid level and lower in dual card setups.

It's very quiet and 80+ Golds saves me da monies!

Cons: Cables are a little short if you have a very large case though I suppose most with a large case would go for something more than a 550W unit

Other Thoughts: Overall I am impressed this unit is nearly silent and it's powering my moderatly overclocked i7 2600 and GTX 660 with ease.

Keep in mind 550W and 42 Amp are good numbers for a system similar to mine however if you are running an AM3+ or 2011 and plan on doing some heavy overclocking and overvolting you will need more power than this.

Simply put if you are going for 5Ghz on an FX or Sandy E and have two 7970's or 670/680's dont even think about it go for more.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Single 12V rail, gold certified, plenty of connectors, good cable covers, long 5 year warranty, Active PFC. Just about everything that's good in a mid range power supply.

Cons: Not modular, pricy without a discount or rebate.

Other Thoughts: This power supply works well with a Z77 motherboard and a i5 3570 processor with 8 GB of DDR3 RAM. It powers a GTX 660 without any issues and has two 6+2 connectors for other video cards. I know from experience that Thermaltake honors their warranty. This power supply is a good buy especially with a discount or rebate.
