This review is from: Thermaltake Toughpower Grand TPG-1200M 1200W ATX 12V v2.3 & EPS 12V v2.92 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC WEEE RoHS ENERGY STAR 80 Plus Gold ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply Power Supply
Pros: Very nice supply, well built, high-end cables and cable ties.
Cons: Note that this PS is Intel tested/approved for the Intel DZ87KLT-75K motherboard which has special low/no current requirements for the power supply.
Also, this unit did not fit in the Thermaltake Level 10 GT case; one of the support bars of the case would need to be bent for this supply to fit (either the supply is too wide or the case's mounting brackets are too narrow).
This review is from: Intel BOXDZ87KLT75K LGA 1150 Intel Z87 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: High end motherboard, Intel - reputable design and manufacturing. Lots of extras in the box and on the board.
Cons: Orange "Attention" sheet in the motherboard box has a section on the necessity of using power supplies with a 12V2 minimum load of 0 Amps. There is a link on the sheet to Intel tested power supplies but the url is bad. I found the list by working my way through the Intel web site; there aren't many power supplies on the approved list.
Other Thoughts: I include the PS warning in the review to save others the same problem that I ran into - a high end power supply is not necessarily compatible with this motherboard. I had to buy another PS, this time from the Intel tested list.READ FULL REVIEW
