    Default Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 750w

    Hi you all
    Thermaltake has a new series called Toughpower Grand
    i would love to see you reviewing this beast :P

    it has got a 80+ gold badge and this review
    http://www.legionhardware.com/articl..._series,1.html

    also says it is a very good psu, on par with the HX750/850, the M12D-750/850 and the new AX series from corsair.

    the setup they use can generate like 700w and even the 650w version could still pull it off.

    All that topped with a nice price, 130 euros, for 750w and 7 years warranty
    makes it (i think) an amazingly good PSU

    the only bad things i could find is that they have too little cables
    8sata
    8molex
    4pcie
    i would like
    12/10/4or6

    and they use special screws because of the rounded edges they need to be longer.

    It'll most likely be a solid unit. It's a CWT DSG internally. Just like the HX850/750

    I just ran thru the review linked to above, and it is one of the "I have a multimeter and a Kill-A-Watt wall plug device so I'm qualified to post a review" type of dreck. Not only that, but in the comparison tables, they used an Antec TruePower Blue 750, but they named it the "Toughpower Blue 750". Geez. I understand people make mistakes, and typos happen, but come on.....

    Hey- I have 2 video cards in SLI, and a quad core CPU, I even have a multimeter AND I know how to run Furmark, 3DM06, PLUS I have Metro2033 and the WHOLE CallOfDuty series, and I even know how to overclock BOTH my processor AND my video cards- can I post PSU reviews too?

    (yes - the above is dripping with sarcasm - no offense limbokiller, but that "review" belongs on the JG Wall Of Shame if it existed I guess it isn't any worse than some of the pitiful reviews I've posted links to )

    Now if we could get a real review of these TT units.....

    Thermaltake had a Thoughpower unit with a Blue LED fan. It was called the EVO_Blue and that's probably what they're referring too.

    yeah i know that is the problem, i only showed you guys the review because its the ONLY english one and that is the little material there is on this PSU, there are 2 italian ones and one of them is a little better and the other is just plain bad.

    i would love to see you reviewing this beast :P
    was kinda my obvious hint because i know it is a very bad review, but at least it was something.

    but the things i could conclude
    design
    dc-dc design
    7 years warranty
    seems a nice fan
    price
    what i could see it was almost the same design as the HX series, and from reviews i know that the AX series is marginally better so those claims were more from myself
    but as said it is a evolution of the Toughpower XT series, the corsair TX series
    and that made it almost the same design as the HX, how convenient

    TX internals starting with an english and decent review

    Grand internals italian

    Toughpower XT internals italian could probably find a better review but you just want to see the pics

    HX internals finally an english site and a decent one

    No, it doesn't.

    The only difference is the heatsinks.

    Well the HX750 and HX850 do look a little different than normal DSGs

    Not by alot. Almost everything is in the same place. The Modular Interface/PCB is really the only drastic difference with the exception of the dual primary caps instead of single like in the TPG & TX950

    That's because the HX750 and HX850 aren't normal DSGs. But the TX950 and this PSU both are.
