CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS


 
Thermaltake has a real winner in the Toughpower 550W. This is just the first entry in the Toughpower series, and it's impressive. But, if 550 watts isn't enough for you, there are Toughpowers in the works with up to 750 watts and modular cables will be available on selected models. Outstanding stability like this, however, doesn't come cheap. This PSU is widely available at online retailers for around $125-$130 US. But Thermaltake's 3-year warranty and eRMA service sweetens the deal somewhat. If you need a PSU for a new build, or are looking to upgrade, do yourself a favor and seriously consider the Toughpower 550W.


Pros:


- 550 watts
- Two +12V rails (totaling 38A)
- Impressive stability
- Quiet
- Excellent finish
- Fully sleeved
- Compact size
- Native support for SLI and CrossFire
- Lots of connectors and ample cable length

Cons:


- No active PFC
- A bit pricey
