Thermaltake is one of a handful of companies that have so many different lines of power supplies that their offerings are constantly evolving. This evolution allows for them to constantly inject new technologies into their line up and bring things to the table faster than others. This provides Thermaltake with a very distinct advantage over their competition as most companies tend to rely on annual or semi-annual refreshes of all their product lines.
The Toughpower Grand series of units is certainly one of their most prominent series. Thermaltake injects their heart and soul into these power supplies to bring both beauty and performance to the table in a single unit. As such, it should come as no surprise that Thermaltake recently unveiled the next generation of Toughpower Grand units at this year's CES. The Toughpower Grand units have always fared very well for us and Thermaltake promises that this generation will not disappoint, so let's start digging into the 1050W model and see what we can find.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1050W Platinum power supply utilizes a single 12V rail design that is rated for 87A or 1044W. The minor rails share a combined maximum output of 120W, but are not rated for the same output individually. The 3.3V rail is rated for 25A and the 5V rail is rated for 22A. The 5VSB rail is rated for 2.5A or 12.5W. This seems a little bit low, especially for a 1000W+ power supply.
Thermaltake never skimps when it comes to features and the new Toughpower Grand 1050W Platinum doesn't falter here. All protections are present including SCP, OVP, OCP, OPP, and OTP. All of the cables are modular and of the flat ribbon variety. The Toughpower Grand 1050W Platinum is rated for 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency and 100% continuous output at 50C.
Thermaltake lists the Toughpower Grand 1050W Platinum with an MSRP of $209.99. This makes it one of the cheapest 80 PLUS Platinum rated units on the market. Adding to the sweet price that you can pick up this unit for, Thermaltake backs it with their seven-year warranty so you know that your investment is protected for years to come.
