Specifications, Availability and Pricing

The Thermaltake Toughpower XT comes in swinging with 875W of power, almost all of which is available on the single, massive 72A 12V rail. The 3.3V and 5V rails are no slouches either, as they put out 25A each for a total combined output of 150W. This should be plenty of power to support dual GPU systems with a high end processor and even some overclocking.

Thermaltake includes all of the features that we look for in the Toughpower XT 875W power supply. There are all the protections that you can shake a stick at including over temperature protection. Thermaltake even rates the Toughpower XT 875W at 50C so you know that it can withstand the heat and won't let you down when you need it the most.

The Thermaltake Toughpower XT 875W retails for $169.99. This is a price drop since it was originally released and a few places still haven't dropped the price on it yet, so make sure that you do your shopping before you place an order for one to ensure that you get the best deal.

It is readily available at both retail stores and online. Thermaltake backs the power supply with a 5 year warranty for further good measure.
