5 out of 5 eggsGood P/S

This review is from: Thermaltake Toughpower TPD-0550M - SLI/ CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Gold Certification and Semi Modular Cables Black Active PFC Power Supply Intel Haswell Ready (PS-TPD-0550MPCGUS-1)

Pros: Bought this to replace an aging P/S in customer's PC, which wouldn't properly power up video card.
This P/S solved the problem. It has detachable cables so you only use connectors you need, and keep the rest in the box.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet PSU, might as well call it full modular

This review is from: Thermaltake Toughpower TPD-0550M - SLI/ CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Gold Certification and Semi Modular Cables Black Active PFC Power Supply Intel Haswell Ready (PS-TPD-0550MPCGUS-1)

Pros: This PSU is silent. My case is not soundproof and I can hardly hear it
Came with all the cables I needed and more
The only attached cables are vital power connectors. Everything else can be added and removed. If you're looking for modular, then get this
It worked out of the box and didn't fry any components

Cons: Nothing yet. Will update or write another review if something happens

Other Thoughts: This might seem petty, but the label on the outside looks a little lame. It's not a problem if you don't have a window or can't see it ever. This is more a suggestion for Thermaltake to make it look sexier for those who have display windows. I got this on sale for $40; it's a steal at that price.

1 out of 5 eggsConfused

This review is from: Thermaltake Toughpower TPD-0550M - SLI/ CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Gold Certification and Semi Modular Cables Black Active PFC Power Supply Intel Haswell Ready (PS-TPD-0550MPCGUS-1)

Pros: Its modular and it was on sale. Great for the price.

Cons: It says it comes with 2 x 6+2-Pin and I only got 1 and I need 2 for my 380x. Unless I read it wrong and its meerly saying that it has the option for 2 pci express slots?

Other Thoughts: It works great other than that, the fan is super quite.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
PS-TPD-0550MPCGUS-1 come with one PCI-e power cable. And it has two 6+2-pin connectors on one cable.
Best Regards,

4 out of 5 eggs2 PIC-E Plugs

This review is from: Thermaltake Toughpower TPD-0550M - SLI/ CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Gold Certification and Semi Modular Cables Black Active PFC Power Supply Intel Haswell Ready (PS-TPD-0550MPCGUS-1)

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Limites

Other Thoughts: Newegg lists this as having Four PCI-E 6+2pin connectors, but it only has two. Won't end up fitting my needs for this reason.

This review is from: Thermaltake Toughpower TPD-0550M - SLI/ CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Gold Certification and Semi Modular Cables Black Active PFC Power Supply Intel Haswell Ready (PS-TPD-0550MPCGUS-1)

Pros: It works.

Cons: Cables are stiff and not very easy to install.
Power supply arrived with a bent fan blade that was hitting the guard. I pushed it away with a screw driver and it seemed very flimsy.

Other Thoughts: I'm not crazy about bottom mount power supplies because of the open top if anything including dust falls it will go in the power supply.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
The Tough Power 550W Gold carries a 5 year warranty and we recommend contacting Customer Service to have the bent fan blade resolved. Additional, the PSU can be mounted with the fan facing up or down. Our recommendation would vary depending on the type of case you have. Customer Service can provide additional support.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent PSU

This review is from: Thermaltake Toughpower TPD-0550M - SLI/ CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Gold Certification and Semi Modular Cables Black Active PFC Power Supply Intel Haswell Ready (PS-TPD-0550MPCGUS-1)

Pros: The PSU has a lot of great qualities about it. First of all it's Thermaltake. They have come a long ways to make some stellar products and this is one of them. It has an extremely well build internals with high quality caps and other major parts. While not 100% modular, it still 90% modular. This PSU also comes with the flat cables which can definitely help with cable management.

I have been testing this PSU under heavy load for over a month on a heavy load 24/7 and it has yet to show any signs of weakness. Pretty sure that in it's self is a sign of one hell of a well built PSU. Lets also not forget that the PSU is super quite and cool. Thermaltake really knows how to build PC components and do it well. Usually low end PSU's are just that, low end. This PSU has a very respectful price point, especially when it comes to the quality.

Cons: I really couldn't find a cone with this PSU. It works, as designed.

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind, this is not built for high end PC's. Mid range, yes. Will you be able to do SLI? Only if you are not running multiple HDD's and a power hungry processor or even an OC'd processor. This is a mid range PSU meant for mid range parts. If you're looking to shave costs don't. When building a PC it's always best to go with the GOOD quality equipment. This doesn't mean the higher the cost the better it is either, do your research, read reviews before throwing down the $$. If you're building a PC on your own then you should be educated enough to know what to look for.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent PSU

This review is from: Thermaltake Toughpower TPD-0550M - SLI/ CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Gold Certification and Semi Modular Cables Black Active PFC Power Supply Intel Haswell Ready (PS-TPD-0550MPCGUS-1)

Pros: Modular
Plenty of power for a mid-range PC
Super Quite
87%-92% efficiency

Cons: I haven't had an issue with this yet and I have been putting it through it's paces for over a month of constant heavy loads.

Other Thoughts: This PSU offers a great upgrade at a very respectable price point for those who are in the mid range setups (single GPU, mid range proc, no more than 5 HDD's). I wouldn't suggest this in an SLI build as this is definitely not the proper PSU for that, but anything and this will handle it with ease. I also want to mention that it stays super quite and cool even under heavy loads which is a plus if you like your PC to be as quite as possible.
