5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This thing was mad easy to install... even in the small factory case of my Dell Dimension 4600, I just had to flip up a plastic covering next to it, and slid it in and fastened it in. There are so many wires, more than I could possibly use at this point but with all the extras and the 480Ws I have lots of room for further expansion. The fan speed controller fit right into a spare PCI slot and lets you manipulate the fan speed - which even at maximum is quieter than the the factory PSU I had in there. The orange color of the fans is NICE... looks really jazzy and livens up my set up. This is a heavy piece but not in a bad way: it feels SOLID. Oh yeah, this thing is only 60 bucks for 480Ws. Buy this, dont buy some 20 dollar thing that promises 500.

Cons: A little big, you might need to move stuff around in your case. I didn't have that much trouble since it was the same exact size as my previous PSU. Also, theres a lot of wiring - A LOT more than I could use. It might get confusing, so if you got a lot of stuff that needs power in your case, try to keep track of it all.

Other Thoughts: I havent had this more than a week so I dont know if it will hold up, but da*n it looks and feels like it will last a million years.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great :)

Pros: Going on 2 years strong, don't have a powerful setup, so didn't need anything amazing.

Cons: None with the item itself, but possibly outdated? SLI support, Dual rails seems to be some of the newer preferred options.

Other Thoughts: Had it for 2 years and 13 days as of writing this. Gone strong, never had a problem, very pleased.

5 out of 5 eggsDid not need new PS

Pros: Works on my EPS with SLI PCIE. Thermaltake has a 20 to 24 and 4 to 6 wire adapter kit. Been working great with 2 EVGA 6600.

Cons: Watts don't matter that much as the AMPS For the 6800 GT series and up,You will need more then 20 amps.

Other Thoughts: Most of the 500 or 600 watt PS only have 20 amps, so if your going SLI you need the Dual Rail models. Also 120mm fans draw less amps. Game On

5 out of 5 eggsStill working 2 years later

Pros: Bought 2 in March 2004 and another in 2005. I paid $xx each for the 2 with lights. Used them in 8 diffenrt machines includeing a SLI dual core CPU for 4 months now and no problems. Even in my server with 7 hard drives (6 on raid 5) on 167 hours a week.

Cons: Sata power connectors don't reach sata drives in most of my cases.
Do not put speaker wires across PS unless you want to hear it.
In auto 2nd fan mode, fan starts at 250 to 500 rmp. If PS wire is hooked to MB it can set off a alarm till it warms up.

Other Thoughts: I have installed more then 50 Thermaltake Power Supplys without one RMA. I recommend Thermaltake PS for all customer builds.
New egg is great for speed and RMA's. If your order gets messed up tho (wrong or missing part) Customer support can be a pain. Took 3 weeks once to fix a order, but I got a FREE Maxtor Stress Ball!

5 out of 5 eggsThis is a quality product!

Pros: Extremely well made, long, numerous
leads with special 4 pin molex
connectors for easy on-off application. Very quiet when set on
low to medium. Makes some noise on
high(3500rpm)but if you're gaming
or capturing video,turn up the sound or play some good music.

Cons: Non so far

Other Thoughts: After trying two other PS brands, which either didn't work at all, or put out less-than-rated power, I
ordered the Thermaltake 480w, as I
have had good luck with other
Thermaltake products. I have recommended this to two others, and they purchased from the Egg
and are so far very happy with
them. Thanks again to Mike P. for making the RMA process so

5 out of 5 eggsForget Antec

Pros: -Provides solid power on all rails.
-Enough connectors for most people.
-Comes with adapters for newer motherboards.
-Fan controls are a nice touch, fans is quiet most of the time.
-Price is good for what you get.
-Heavy/Solid construction

Cons: The bottom slim fan never slows down, so if you have a silent system you will hear the little fan, nothing serious.

Would be nice if it were modular ;)

Other Thoughts: Purchased to replace OEM PSU that burned out and this had better reviews than Antec PSUs and I trust ThermalTake to provide high-quality products. Haven't regretted purchasing this PSU and I've had it for more than a year.

5 out of 5 eggsNot cheap, but, it is deluxe and quiet

Pros: I got this because I didn't want a rinky dinky power supply, but, something with lots of connectors, lots of power, and quiet. This power supply meets all of those requirements. Set on the slower speeds (with the adjustment dial) the fans are darn near silent. If you need higher speed, dial it up and not so silent.

Cons: It would be nice if it was just automatic, slow it down unless it was overheating. Maybe it does do this and I missed it? Doesn't seem like it.

Other Thoughts: While it is a little pricey, it is definitely a deluxe model. Lots of connectors and it IS quiet on the slower fan speeds.
