Thermaltake Toughpower Grand Platinum 700-Watt 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply Review - Inside the Box

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand Platinum 700-Watt 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply Review
Thermaltake updates its Toughpower Grand unit by changing the color and increasing efficiency and noise on the 12V rail, which is not what we were expecting.

Inside the Box

As expected, the unit is well protected by foam all the way around. The modular cables occupy the black bag.

The TPG-700M is an all white unit with the exception of a single band of black running around the outside and the text. The top features the serial number and I/O specification label.

Both sides feature the same text, just inverted on the opposite side.

There isn't anything out of the ordinary on the back other than the Thermaltake logo which obstructs a small amount of airflow.

On the front, we find all of the modular connectors along with labeling to tell you which connectors are for which cables.

The bottom presents us with the black mesh fan grill which contrasts nicely with the white 140mm fan that cools the TPG-700M.

All modular cables included with the power supply are white with the exception of the Molex to FDD adapter.

As far as accessories go, there is quite a bit going on there. There are two rubber vibration isolation mounts designed for the corners of the power supply. To accommodate these, four long mounting screws are also included. Cable management is provided in the form of some zip ties as well as two plastic cable locks.

Two pieces of literature are included in the box. One is a warranty pamphlet while the other is the user manual.
