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

Cabling Arrangement




The cable selection and connector availability for the Thermaltake Toughpower Grand Platinum 700W is about as perfect as you can get. There are dual EPS12V connectors for systems that need it as well as four PCI-E connectors over three cables to provide enough power for two high-end video cards. There are also eight SATA and six Molex connectors available for peripheral devices. The only thing that would be nice to see is the second EPS12V connector made modular as few will need it in a mid-range power supply and it will just provide clutter on the inside of a case.




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



A Look Inside




Inside we have a very open unit with two large heat sinks running the length of the power supply. The PCB is also somewhat compact and Thermaltake could have used a shorter enclosure if they had wanted.




A single Panasonic capacitor sits on the primary side of the Toughpower Grand Platinum 700W power supply.




The secondary side is packed full of Nippon Chemi-Con caps.




Thermaltake uses their own TT-1425 140mm fan to provide the active cooling for the TPG-700M. This fan is simply a rebrand from Yen Sun Technology.
