Pros: Very nice fit and finish. Cable lengths no issue with bottom mount to top mother board power connector. Al modular plugs and sockets have firm solid connections when mated. Enough cable to cover all combination of options. Fan is very quiet.
Cons: Nope, no bad news, it is good.
Other Thoughts: Read the reviews, this has fewer legitimate low scores than almost any other power supply in the Gold 750 Watt range.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake Toughpower TPD-0750M - SLI / CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Gold Certification and Semi Modular Cables Black Active PFC Power Supply Intel Haswell Ready (PS-TPD-0750MPCGUS-1)
Pros: I found the flat cables included with this power supply are easier to install and manage than the sleeved cable power supply I replaced.
Motherboard connection cables are long enough. Especially the top power connector.
Cons: Small nit, the included four black tie-wraps are a joke. I used nearly 20 Thomas and Betts nylon tie-wraps on this installation.
Other Thoughts: Needed a replacement power supply for my i7 system. Was looking for a Gold certified power supply, Newegg had this on sale.
This PS was Installed in a Cooler Master HAF 922 - High Air Flow Mid Tower Computer Case, upside down bottom installed, pulling air from bottom of case. Cable length not a problem.
Pros: Great BIOS, you can do autopilot or manual tweaking. Card layout was convenient for my case. The three case fan headers are conveniently located for front, side, and back fans; it also has a dual fan connector for the CPU fan. The internal USB-3 hooked to my case's front panel USB-3 ports and works like a charm.
Cons: See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: Just a comment in case you like a to do a system build up incrementally--don't--you have to use an add-in video card to initially boot the system.
The BIOS is set to use an add-in video card as the default display. Since not all LGA 1155 processors have integrated Intel graphics, this makes sense. In the default BIOS the Intel integrated graphics is OFF. Each time you use the BIOS reset button on the back panel, it returns to this default configuration.
