Thermaltake Toughpower XT TPX-1475M 1475W ATX 12V 2.3 & SSI EPS 12V 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Thermaltake TPX-1475M Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: * Insanely high efficiency. Added a beefier psu and my electric bill will actually go DOWN a tiny bit.

* I am using this PSU in a very large case, and all the wires were plenty long. Even those with very large cases like a Cosmos II should have no problems.

* After reading some other reviews, I was concerned my unit would arrive with a 18ga cable. I was happy to see it came with a 14ga. Thermaltake has fixed this problem.

* Insane amount of SATA connectors, this is the only PSU I have owned where I have been able to hook up all my hdd's without adapters (see specs)

* Quiet! The psu actually doesn't even turn on the fan unless it needs to. I ran my system for 15 minutes before it decided to start spinning.

* Powers everything in my system very well. Not even a hint of an issue (see specs)

Cons: The only thing I can come up with is that while this PSU is mostly modular, it is not fully so. My motherboard only uses one EPS12v connector, not two. Had to zip tie the 2nd back out of the way. Maybe add one hardwired PCI-E connector and one modular EPS12v connector? Everyone is going to use one, but many don't use both.

Other Thoughts: Intel Xeon 2687 8 core CPU @ 3.4ghz
Asus Rampage IV motherboard
16GB DDR3 Registered ECC (8x2gb)
1x Kingston 120GB SSD
14x Seagate 3TB 7200RPM ST3000DM001 Hard Drives
LSI Megaraid 9280-16i4e RAID card
1x Radeon R9 290X
29x 120mm Fans
1x Dangerden D5 Pump

Western Digital Raptor WD740GD 74GB 8MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I own two of these in raid0, and they are incredibly fast. At large lan parties in multiplayer games I am always the first one to load a map.

Cons: These drives get hot, so you'll want a fan blowing on them. Not a lot of air is required, but I'd suggest some airflow directly on these drives.

Other Thoughts: These drives run as quiet as any 7200rpm drive when they're not seeking, but a slight ckicking sound can be heard when they are seeking. The sound is not very loud at all but it is there.

  • Owned For:

5 out of 5 eggs Great fan 11/29/2004

This review is from: LOGISYS Computer LT120RD 120mm Cooling Fan

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This fan really blows some serious air. It blows every bit of its 69.15 cfm rating and I think maybe even a little more. Certainly looks sharp too :)
