    Yeah but you can't blame HEC if Tt ordered a 350W Unit and put a 550W Label on it.

    But you are right, Hardwaresecrets did test on of those low end Thermaltakes.

    They are tricky with their naming scheme. it's called a XP550, but it's actually a 430W.

    here is the review.
    Too bad that there are no rules in the ATX specs or laws how a PSU should be labeled...

    BTW: I found this wich seems to be a new one and actually has a Cougar label on it
    Interesting is the label.
    It's called 'MX580' and total power is 600W...
    No need to understand that...

    I won't complain about these TR2's. They don't look outstanding, but still comfortable.
    What about those "Japanese pure polymer SuperCapacitor banks" on the secondary side? Are we going to see ripple&noise below 10mV this time?
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    I got the orion 585W version of this unit for free. Same exact unit, except no input filtering and a microscopic bridge rectifier. Same primary and secondary silicon as that one. I wonder if the outstanding ripple at 18A on the 12v was caused by the schottky only being a 20A part, or because of not enough capacitance?

    Well I don't know what Thermaltake ordered and what HEC manufactured, so I can't say anything 'bout that.
    But it's shure well overrated and a design for PFC but without the coil and we don't know what HEC delivered, so we can't say if HEC sux fur sure.
    And its the 'PD' Plattform but it sure doesn't look like a 400W Model like this gabe 'reviewed' as well.
    And look on page 4...

    Thermaltake does almost exactly zero to their orders. They get whatever CWT, FSP, or HEC is selling with their branding on it.
