    After cases and coolers, it's the turn of Toughpower XT high-end PSUs by Thermaltake to get a whitewash, the company unveiled its "Snow Edition" variant. The Toughpower XT 1275W modular PSU is pictured below. Aesthetically, its main body is colored white, but its fan grille is the same chrome one, and its fan impeller is black (although the press-shot in the placard features a white impeller). Its fixed cabling has white sleeves, and modular (detachable) ones are pure-white flat cables, with black or red colored connectors to add a nice contrast.

    The PSU has stellar efficiency, as it is 80 Plus Platinum certified. It features peak power output of 1375W, although 1275W is guaranteed and advertised. It features full bridge and LLC resonance circuitry with the DC-DC switching module, and interleaved active PFC. Its cables include eight PCIe power connectors, including six 6+2 pin, and two 8-pin. It is backed by a 7-year warranty.

    Meh.
    Tt "top-end" is most other brands' "entry-level".

    Colour scheme is good though, for sure :)

    Not really, Thermaltakes highend are actually pretty good. If you look on Johhny guru the old 1200-1500w PSUs got a good rating.

    The under 1000 watt arent great though.

    ANyway white PSU could be OK but white cables is not a good idea. It just makes messy cables stand out more.

    Can't see these white cables looking too nice with still predominantly black hardware being released.

    :laugh:

    Simply because they use Enhance and CWT as their OEMs that doesn't necessarily mean that they're already just "entry-level".

    Check the reviews of PSU's on this very website and you would know that is not the case.
