The 80+ Silver rating on the Thermaltake Toughpower 1350W is well deserved according to the tests that [H]ard|OCP ran, something which can add up over a year of load. The six 8 pin PCI-Express connectors are on one 12v rail, capable of up to 750W @ 60A, while the other 12v rail handles the other connectors. Those other connectors include twelve SATA and eight Molex connectors, which should handle most configurations with cordage to spare. It does very well on the most important function of providing decent quality power even in harsh conditions, but does cost a bit more than some competing PSUs which you should bear in mind before picking up this PSU.
"Thermaltake is back on our test benches and back with some very big iron. Thermaltake made some of the "biggest and baddest" computer power supplies years ago and we are about to find out if the company does once again. However this Toughpower is well above a kilowatt and surely will have a limited appeal, but also surely attract a lot of attention."
