Thermaltake Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply Review - Packaging

Thermaltake joins the ranks of high efficiency, high wattage power supplies with the Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W power supply. We run it through the ropes to see if it stands out amongst the competition.

The front gives us a great quick overview of the power supply along with a good glimpse of the unit.

A few highlights on the back go build quality and efficiency such as the Japanese capacitors, Full Bridge and LLC Resonance and dual 12V rails. They also introduce you to the S.P.T. indicator which lets you know if the power supply is in standby, outputting good power, and if it is operating within acceptable temperature ranges.

 

This means the power supply is actively monitoring temperature yet Thermaltake still chose not to implement over temperature protection. You're probably scratching your head as much as I am right now, but it just isn't there.

Short of cable length, we have a solid chart with all of the connectors available in the power supply. Also listed here are the I/O specifications for the power supply.

Both sides feature the same information and just highlight the information on the back. The other side provides the information in more languages.

The top and bottom of the box have no information on them.
