We've been throwing a lot of heavy hitters and quality power supplies on the test equipment lately. Some have proven to be quite worthy while others haven't quite been up to par. Thermaltake wants a crack at our testing methodology and it promises to be a grand encounter.
This time around we are putting one of their finest power supplies under the scope to see if it is all it is cracked up to be on paper. The Toughpower Grand PSUs are touted as providing excellent voltage regulation and pure aesthetics. It is almost impossible to find a unit that can deliver on both ends as sacrifices are always made here and there. Perhaps Thermaltake can pull it off with the TPG-750.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Thermaltake provides a single 12V rail capable of outputting 60A of continuous power to feed power hungry systems. The single 12V rail isn't anything new as many manufacturers are moving away from multi-rail PSU's. This eliminates the need to load balance the power supply and simplifies installation.
The TPG-750M comes in swinging with a $179.99 price over at Newegg right now, but can be had for less with a little bit of shopping. For your hard earned loot, Thermaltake packs the power supply full of all the features that we've come to expect from top-tier manufacturers including all the power protections you can shake a stick at, the much desired 50C and 80 Plus Gold ratings, and low noise output all bundled up to be aesthetically pleasing.
Thermaltake goes a step beyond and offers an unusually high 7-year warranty with the TPG-750M. They obviously have a lot of faith in their engineering and expect it to last longer than the rest of the rig that it gets used with.
