The Thermaltake Toughpower TP-550P is a high-end power supply unit designed to perform at a high efficiency rate, ideal for advanced power users who demand greater cooling and higher power for their systems. The Active Power Factor Corrector (Active PFC) helps the unit to deliver a stable 550 Watts of continuous output (in 40°C operating environment) with greater efficiency. Massive single +12V rail (42A) design enhances power distribution and provide superior performance for your PC.
The Toughpower TP-550P is compatible with latest Intel/AMD multi -core CPU, with 2 x 6+2-Pin PCI-E connectors that allow connectivity to two graphic cards. Cooling is further boosted with the 12cm Fluid Dynamic Bearing cooling fan that reduces hot spots, offers excellent heat dissipation, and is extremely silent.
Reliability is ensured with the MTBF of more than 100,000 hours, and it's virtually immune to over voltage, over current, and potential short-circuits.
Efficient 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.
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.

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.
