Introduction

Remember way back in time when the power supply was just that expensive piece that was necessary to build a rig? When the actual output wasn't an issue and the looks didn't matter because it just sat in the top of your plain beige case?

Oh wait...that was just a couple of years ago wasn't it?

Things have changed a good deal since then. With the advent of unique case designs and the widespread use of side window panels, every aspect of the PC has gone through some significant changes lately.

Introducing the newest PSU to wear the Thermaltake branding; the PurePower 480 Butterfly. It seems that the folks at Thermaltake have taken an active interest in not only the power of their units, but the looks and cooling as well. While we'll be taking a look at the power levels along all three primary voltage rails, we'll also be looking at some added features that might just make this something special.

So sit back and enjoy as we stroll through the abilities of a Butterfly!
