The Toughpower series of power supplies from Thermaltake is one of the most renowned series of power supplies around and for good reason. The units refuse to compromise on quality anywhere and can handle abuse, day after day after day. The Toughpower Grand units take things a little further and add in beauty to the lineup for those that are seeking both performance and aesthetics.
Today we have the new Toughpower Grand Platinum 700W power supply on the test bench. Thermaltake has upped the efficiency of the unit to provide 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency and delivered and all white unit, including cabling. It will take a lot more than some good looks and high efficiency to make this unit live up to the Toughpower Grand name, so let's see what it is made of as far as specifications go.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Toughpower Grand Platinum 700W utilizes a single 12V rail to deliver most of the power and it is rated for 58A or 99% of the total output of the power supply. Both the 3.3V and 5V rails are rated for 22A with a combined output of 120W. The 5VSB rail is rated for the average 3A or 15W. Maximum combined output for the TPG-700M is 700W.
Just as you'd expect from something bearing the Toughpower Grand name, the TPG-700M's feature list is filled full of checkmarks. All protections are present including SCP, OVP, OCP, OPP and OTP. The power supply features both native and modular cabling. All cables are white and fully sleeved or of the flat ribbon variety. It is rated for 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency and 100% continuous output at 50C.
Thermaltake has an MSRP of $179.99 for the Toughpower Grand Platinum 700W power supply. You'll find it with a $10 premium on Newegg, but you'll also have to cough up some shipping to bring the total up to $201.29. This easily makes it the most expensive Platinum rated power supply in the 700W range available. Thermaltake backs the Toughpower Grand Platinum 700W with a seven year warranty.
