    Honestly a pretty solid PSU. Haven't had any problems with it and I've had many 8+ hour gaming sessions with it. Installation was easy, its not modular however it didn't have too many unnecessary connections. The fan is pretty quiet, atleast the cpu and gpu is louder. There sometimes is a slight whine but its inadubile with headphones. Extra plus, the logo is flipped upside down on oneside incase you mount the PSU upside down. It'll always be facing the right way

    Gaming pc just didn’t want to turn on. I did some troubleshooting and figured it was the power supply. Found this one and was the perfect size and wattage that I needed. Performs exactly how it’s supposed to.

    It’s a pretty good psu, the cable management is a little tougher since it’s not fully modular or even semi but can’t complain for the price point

    Cheap, reliable, and works flawlessly. It is worth nothing that unlike some higher-end PSUs, the fan on this model runs constantly as long as the PC is on, despite never even getting warm. This isn't a big deal and it's very quiet, but if absolute silence and power efficiency is what you're looking for, it might be work keeping in mind. Cables are included in the body of the PSU and cannot be removed.

    If you're torn between this and a basic EVGA or Smart series Thermaltake supply and you dont need or want modular cables. This is the unit for you. Its well built. Has Japanese capacitors (primary and secondary) its got a single 12V rail instead of a multi rail setup. Its a good unit. Its 80+ gold. its affordable, Its also a massively better built unit then the thermaltake smart series units which, while usually reliable, have been failing on me seemingly left and right whereas these toughpowers just seem to go and go like the Energizer bunny. They just dont quit.

    This power supply works well and I haven’t had any issues with it yet. However, the non-modular cables make it pretty tough to work with and an issue if you don’t have any space in your case to put them. Another thing to note is that while the cables are sleeved, they do have that colored ketchup and mustard look on the endings, so I’d probably recommend a sleeved cable kit if you do care about aesthetics.

    Decent PSU for the price. Getting gold efficiency at this price is awesome. If you dont like wasting power, getting the highest efficicency psu you can afford is the way to go, instead of it being lost as heat or worse, being charged for power you dont use if your power company doesnt bill for actual power consumed, not apparent. Rate your psu at 50-85% of the load your pc consumes for the best efficicent and stretch your dolllars.

    This saved my computer

    Circumstances have forced me to learn how to make computer repairs. And when the power supply to my work computer died, I never thought I could replace it. But a tech from the company the sold me my computer (out of warranty) sent me a how-to video I gave it a shot. And lo-and-behold, I was successful. First thing to remember, not all those wires go to the power supply. Second, every plug is unique in shape an configuration. So when you unplug on thing, look for the plug that looks the same and plug it in. Third, go a step at a time. Don't unplug everything first. Unplug and plug in things in steps. On my computer there were only 4 places the power supply plugged in. Lastly, this power supply has some plugs that are configurable. So one plug on the supply has 8 sockets but you only need 4? Look closely. You'll notice that you can remove some sockets so it matches. Nothing was as relieving, or satisfyingly, as when your computer comes back to life.

    I got thisnfor my wife's pc to replace an ancient 1000w psu i had since 2010. It didn't solve my pc issue but its not the power supply, its a motherboard problem. But it's still a great power supply for what I paid for

    Wrong Power Supplies in the box.

    So, I bought 2 of these at my local Best Buy on a Black Friday sale. When I opened them up, they contained the wrong power supplies, they had the Smart Series 80+ gold inside the box, the serial numbers did not match. Upon research, I find that the Smart 80+ gold only listed on the Australia site, and the GX2 listed on the Latin American site. Nothing on North America. I sent a ticket with pictures and never heard anything from Thermaltake. I don't blame Best Buy for this as its clearly a quality control issue with Thermaltake. This seems to be a far to common issue among various industries. So check them when you get them.

      The Smart series 80+ gold is the GX2 model. The GX2 is listed on our thermaltakeusa.com website.

    The power supply on my six year old Dell desktop computer died. I took the computer to Best Buy Geek Squad in hopes of getting it repaired. Not only did Best Buy have a replacement power supply in stock, but they were able to get it repaired in one working day. The power supply also has a 5-year guantee.
