Thermaltake Launches Next Generation Toughpower XT PSU Series with Enhanced Wattage

Thermaltake Technology, leading DIY computer components and power supply brand, today announced a new edition of the award-winning “Toughpower XT” line of high-end PC power supply units. The New Toughpower XT with 25 watts more than other brands in the market. This added wattage is meant to enhance the system upgrade potential. Special features such as the DC-DC Converter Module, Double Forward technology and the new Active PFC circuit design increase the PSU’s efficiency up to 89%, while at the same time improving system stability and reliability. The New Toughpowr XT utilizes high quality 105°C / 221℉ Japanese made solid state capacitors and latest PCI-E 6pin & PCI-E 6+2pin connectors to support latest multi-graphics solutions such as SLI and CrossFire X.

The four models of the new Toughpower XT series are all 80 PLUS Bronze certified, they come in four versions with 575W, 675W, 775W and for demanding power users and hardcore gamers with 875W. All of this ensures that even power-hungry setups run at highest efficiency, thereby helping you to effectively save real cash on your next electricity bill while at the same time doing something good for the environment.

Traditional power supplies tell you nothing about the status of your PSU, so users find no way to protect their PSUs against failure. To help you monitor your power supply status, the Toughpower XT Series utilizes the S.P.T. indicator to display the Standby mode, the Power good signal, and the Temperature of your PSU, bringing you real-time monitoring over the power supply. The New Toughpower XT’s exclusive 12Vin1 provides for a powerful single 12V rail for best compatibility. The unique FanDelayCool feature enables the 14cm fan to keep running 15-30 seconds after system shutdown to prolong the lifetime of PSU components.

The New Toughpower XT series by Thermaltake offers users an advanced power supply solution, striking the perfect balance between reliability, efficiency and quality. With the DC-to-DC voltage converter module, a 14cm cooling fan, S.P.T Indicator, 12Vin1, FanDelayCool function and 80 PLUS Bronze certification, the New Toughpower XT power supplies are the ideal solutions for system builders and quality-minded enthusiasts alike.

The New Toughpower XT 575W, 675W, 775W and 875W will be available at a suggest retail price of $109, $135, $145 and $159 respectively.

Honestly, I wish they'd just stick to more traditional wattage numbers (in 50w increments) for the sake of more easily comparing products from different manufacturers. Adding another 25w for "future upgrade potential" to something that already has twenty times that is a bit silly.

Prices aren't bad though and nice to see a single 12v rail.

This "added wattage" thing is silliness incarnate...

"We have 25 watts more in our 575w model than your 550w model!"
-"Umm, yes, but that's pretty obvious, right?"
"But we ALSO have 25 watts more on our 675w model than your 650w model! And 775w more than your 750w model too! Ain't that great?"
-"Yeah, sure..."

That video was one of those ones where it's inadvertently funny. And what's with her bragging about solid state capacitors when you can clearly see that alot of them are electrolytic?

"Ferocious until the End" is a pretty dire tag line.

What they really mean is "Ferocious to until the End where everyone buys Corsair power supplies and Cooler Master chassis."

Poor Thermaltake fails on marketing again. Does anyone remember their original toughpower ads featuring a kitten and a stethoscope? :D Where is a lolcat when we need one.

25 more watts than other brands? No they don't. Most brand's 650W PSUs have as much as 75W more than that 575W!

Hey Jenny, you sound like you caught a bad cold woman!
Anyway, where Thermaltake fails miserably in building cases, they do a decent job at PSUs.

Ferocious til the end

The end being when you approach 80% of their rated capacity, and they burst into flames.


(i have a very low opinion of TT PSU's. mostly because i truly have seen many of them literally catch fire, and destroy the entire PC)

Not a problem with their toughpower XT lines. Same design as the CWT Corsairs, and components are about the same quality too.

I've seen the TT toughpowers explode/die at the overclocking party in 2009 CES last year.

And Corsairs have exploded before too. A couple of failures means nothing in the overall.

TT just tend to die more than most. they are a 'low end' brand name.

Not the Toughpower XT line tho. Well, we don't know about this refresh, but the last 2 gens were solid. Built well with quality design and components. Internally the same as Corsair psus, for the most part.

Thank you! Nice to see this from a mod here. I realize it's sales speak and perhaps even paid but to see TT referred to as a "leading...DIY brand" made me laugh then cry. :shadedshu

I used a TT PSU in a build once. For my Mom. For the price I took a chance. So far it has handled the serious load of Bejeweled and Quicken just fine without catching fire.

We'll see. I'm going to give it more than 2 gens.
