Thermaltake is among a handful of companies of late that have been putting out a very solid power supply, and the Toughpower 1200 is no exception. Even during different levels of stress, the power supply displayed near perfect voltages across all three primary rails with basically no fluctuation. This means that you can always expect to have a strong and steady stream of juice going to your components regardless of load levels.
The modular design is always a huge plus since it makes cable management a breeze and the Molex connectors with the plastic tabs makes it a snap to remove connectors from your components. This is a great feature if you are like me and are changing out components on a regular basis.
You should also never have any worries about cooling since this beast comes with a massive 140mm fan built into the belly. Of course, this does not equate to silence. While not an annoying sound, the fan of this PSU will be heard if you don't have any powerful cooling going on within the enclosure. It certainly isn't the loudest unit tested to date, but if you are looking for total silence you will be a bit disappointed.
Pricing for this model is in the area one would expect to see for such a powerful source of power. The MSRP hovers in the $400US range, but the unit can be found online at a bit under $380US. While this is certainly a goodly amount to shell out for a power supply, keep in mind that you will be getting not only more power than you will likely need for quite some time, you will also be getting a full 5 year manufacturers warranty to boot.
Bottom line... Whether you have a high-end gaming rig, an overclocked enthusiast system, or are just looking for something strong that gives you room to grow, the Thermaltake Toughpower 1200 will easily meet your needs. With a massive amount of available power, modular cabling and a 5 year warranty, it will serve you well for a long time to come.
