    Default Thermaltake Toughpower 1.5KW review

    "The Toughpower 1,500W power supply struggled to keep AC ripple suppression under control. All of the +12V rails showed significant ripple right from the start and actually approached or reached the upper 120 mV limit at full load. This is a common weakness in many higher power PSUs and suggests this platform is being pushed very hard."

    Hmmmmm......

    Well Lee is right the PUC's are electrically noisy most of the time and 1500w is the top end of the design so its not really that surprising.

    What do you think of PCPer's reviews?
    Their results are detailed and well organized, do they have any artifacts?
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    Within reasonable variation all the PUC units have reviewed similar to Lee's review of the 1500w.
