Thermaltake Toughpower 750W Power Supply Review
A Closer Look
The Thermaltake Toughpower enclosure is painted gloss black and uses a single 140mm fan on the bottom side for cooling. The fan speed is dynamically adjusted based on power supply load and temperature. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
The large seven bladed fan is manufactured by Yate Loon Electronics (D14BM-12) and is capable of moving a large amount of air with minimal noise. A clear plastic shroud forces the fan to blow air into the front of the power supply to better cool all the internal components. The open honeycomb grill on the back presents minimal restriction to the flow of exhaust air.
As you can see in the this graph (from the Thermaltake website), Thermaltake claims the fan speed doesn't start ramping up until the power supply reaches approximately 50% load (375 watts), which should result in a very quiet unit for most users.
Here are a few more pictures showing the layout and components inside the Toughpower 750W.
The Thermaltake power supply comes with a full complement of cables and connectors. The wiring harnesses measure approximately 20' long and all of the cables are covered with black mesh sleeving.
- Main power connector (20-pin/24-pin)
- ATX 12V (4-pin)
- EPS 12V (8-pin)
- (2) PCI Express 12V (6-pin)
- (8) Peripheral Optical/HDD (4-pin)
- (2) Peripheral FDD (4-pin)
- (6) Peripheral Serial ATA (15-pin)
