Cabling Arrangement




Just as it should be with any 1000W power supply, the Thortech Thunderbolt Plus 1000W has a very extensive list of cables. The power supply has dual EPS12V cables for those that need it and support for up to four graphics cards with a total of eight 8-pin PCI-E connectors.


Peripherals are covered very well with twelve SATA connectors, six Molex connectors and a single FDD over six cables. The Thunderbolt Plus also has an additional cable for connecting the iPower Meter that mounts in the 5.25" bay.




Thortech keeps the rail distribution sweet and simple with a single 12V rail.



A Look Inside




Opening up the power supply, we find a hefty amount of heatsinks to make sure that the unit stays nice and cool.




Dual Rubycon capacitors adorn the primary side of the Thunderbolt Plus.




Getting in close, we find that the secondary side is packed full of Nippon Chemi-Con's as well. It's always nice to see 100% Japanese capacitor construction.




Globe Fan provides the 135mm unit that cools this power supply. The model number on this particular fan is RL4Z B1352512H-3M.
