Introduction

 

It seems like only yesterday that a new company hit the streets selling a new style of cooler called an Orb. Some loved them and some thought that they were crazy, but that marked a time when the Thermaltake folks made an indelible name for themselves in the enthusiast community.

 

Leap forward a few years and we're seeing this same company continuing it's goal of making some very effective cooling solutions, but we also see them branching out into several different areas as well. They are still aiming their product line at the enthusiast crowd, but the content of today's review will be along the lines of POWER!

 

A lot of our newer members into the ranks of the hardcore overclocker are having some issues with their new rigs. The results they are garnering aren't exactly what they had expected from the beginning of their project and a lot of folks just don't know what the cause of these troubles may be. But many of the problems found can be attributed to either poor or insufficient power. Which brings us to today's review of the Thermaltake PurePower 420 watt Power Supply Unit. It is time to take a look at one of the most underestimated components that resides inside the case.
