Inside the Box

The Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W power supply is well packed in all aspects with plenty of foam protecting the unit itself.

If you think the power supply looks rather large, you're right. While most seem to be making power supplies that are shorter, Thermaltake isn't concerned with reducing the length of the unit. It measures in at just less than eight inches long.

Both sides feature the same logo, just inverted on the opposite side. This is the only side that has the S.P.T. lights however.

The back is standard with the honeycomb venting as well as the AC input and on/off rocker switch.

Towards the front, we find the modular connectors for the Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W. All of the modular connections are labeled as to which rail they go with. It would be nice to see the native cables labeled as 12V1 so that there is no doubt as to which rails supply power to where.

The bottom of the power supply features a stamped grill to cover the fan. It is a little more restrictive than some, but should still flow plenty of air.

All cables both modular and natively wired are fully sleeved with nylon mesh.
