Specifications and Packaging

The Thermaltake Toughpower Cable Management 1350W power supply supports the ATX12V v2.3 and SSI EPS12V v2.91 standards and is rated for a combined, continuous output power of 1,350 watts at up to 50°C.

With a name like "Cable Management" I though it might have flat, or even individually sleeved cables. Looks like a good product, but someone should tell Thermaltake that they missed out on having the first modular PSU by, oh I don't know, many years.

I was just thinking the same thing, I'd much prefer it to be fully modular(As with many enthusiasts). Seems they dropped the ball on this one.

Nice PSU never-the-less

It took until about 2003, before I realized that it was pronounced "Thermal Take". And not "Thermaltalkee" as in, like "shiitake" mushroom. I just thought it was some weird Japanese word. :D

I was so into this, until I saw the UCC KZG cap pic in the first of the last group. These caps are known to have factory faults, and I have replaced the same series in motherboards before that die without bloating, and on occasion, internally short, blowing out the MOSFETS and sometimes taking the motherboard with them. Thermaltake should of stuck with nichicon, rubycon, panasonic, or sanyo for any lytics
