Here is what Thermaltake has to say about their latest XT Series power supplies:

“Continuing its high-performance bloodline, the all-new Toughpower XT is meaner, badder and much more robust. By utilizing the most advanced double-forward & DC to DC Converter design along with highest-grade Japanese capacitors & solid state capacitors with ability to withstand up to 105°C (221°F), Toughpower XT series power supply is able to deliver unprecedented performance with exceptional voltage regulation, power efficiency and long-lasting reliability that are unrivaled by any current power supply on the market”

PSU Testing Methodology

Establishing an accurate load is critical to testing and evaluating a PC power supply.  PCPerspective’s power supply test bench can place a precise 2,000 watt DC load on the PSU under test.  Each power supply is tested under controlled, real-world conditions up to its maximum rated load, using both 115 VAC and 240 VAC line voltage.  Our current suite of tests includes:

•    DC Load Regulation

•    DC Line Regulation

•    DC Cross-load (unbalanced load)

•    AC Ripple and Noise

•    Power Factor

•    Efficiency

•    Differential Temperature

•    Noise

The Thermaltake Toughpower XT Series 775W power supply was evaluated on both features and performance.  A full range of equipment was used to test the power supply under controlled load conditions. 

•    (2) CSI3710A Programmable DC load (+3.3V and +5V outputs)

•    (4) CSI3711A Programmable DC load (+12V1, +12V2, +12V3, and +12V4)

•    Extech MultiMaster MM570 digital multimeter (Accuracy ±0.02%)

•    Extech 380803 Power Analyzer (Accuracy ±0.5% of full scale)

•    DS1M12 "StingRay" digital oscilloscope (20M S/s with 12 Bit ADC)

•    Powerstat Variable Autotransformer, 1.4 KVA, 0-140 VAC

•    Extech Model 407738 digital sound level meter (Accuracy ±1.5 dB)

•    Custom PC60 enclosure to simulate real-world operating conditions

While enjoying the comfort of being with family you may feel annoyed with the power failure. This is when a power inverter can prove to be of immense help. This type of back up power inverter draws power out of a battery it is attached to, and then converts the energy into AC power which is available for the function of any electronic device.
