Cabling Arrangement

When it comes to quantity of cables and number of connectors, Thermaltake does a fantastic job of giving you everything that you could possibly need to fully load down the unit. Aside from the issue with the 24-pin Main cable being somewhat unruly without any cable management, it would be nice to see some cables of varying length.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail. There is no need to worry about load balancing here.

Inside the Toughpower Grand 1050W Platinum power supply is a pair of heat sinks wrapping around various components. Thermaltake adds long cooling fins to increase their effectiveness and reduce the reliance on active cooling.

Thermaltake uses their own 135mm fan to provide the active cooling for the unit as needed.
