Today we are reviewing the Thermaltake Toughpower XT 850W PSU. Thermaltake’s Toughpower PSU’s are alright in my books, so we’ll have to see if their high powered version of the Toughpower line is up to scratch.
Here’s a little about Thermaltake to set the scene:
“Thermaltake Technology Co., Ltd. started its core business based on our extensive knowledge of PC thermal management during the era where the area of performance CPU cooling was only exclusive for "overclockers" or PC enthusiasts. With the company's initial launch of Orb coolers, it created waves of shocks and appraisals throughout the gaming and overclocking communities. Thermaltake quickly became the name gamers turn to when they need high-end and reliable thermal solutions.
With company's core business of CPU cooling still growing at a vast rate, Thermaltake made another grand entry to the PC chassis industry. To date, Thermaltake has always been considered as the pioneering company that revolutionized the PC chassis industry with Xaser series enclosures. The typical and traditional beige and plastic front panel design was outdone by Xaser series chassis's atypical gaming red and aluminium front panel. It was also the first enclosure available to public with Hardcano unit which provided users full control over computer's thermal management system.
Today, Thermaltake has grown into a world-class company with state-of-the-art testing and R&D facility based in Taiwan along with 60+ engineers and ID team covering each application segment such as Liquid Cooling, Air Cooling, PC Enclosure and Power Supply for main-stream users, high-end solutions, system integrators and industrial applications; thus achieve Thermaltake's company motto, " COOLall YOUR LIFE " ! ”
Now that we know who Thermaltake are, let’s get on to business.
