    Thermaltake displayed some of the first PSUs in its new "Smart" series, which is designed to offer "just the right power", in other terms, cost-effective PSUs with proper connectivity. Some of these even feature modular cabling. Thermaltake Smart PSUs come in output capacities below 750W, we spotted a modular 550W model, fixed-cable 630W and 730W models. The Smart M550W is the modular box with 550W continuous power and 650W peak output, it is 80 Plus Bronze efficiency compliant.

    The Smart 630W has peak output of 700W, and is designed for entry-level dual-GPU systems (two 6+2 pin PCI-E connectors), it is 80 Plus compliant. Leading the pack is the Smart 730W, with a peak output of 800W, and four 6+2 pin PCI-E connectors. All three models use single 12V rail designs, are standards compliant, and feature most protection mechanisms. Thermaltake is backing these value PSUs with 3 year warranties.

    These seem like they would actually be nice PSU's. Thermaltake is a trusted brand that has been around for a very long time.

    An entry level dual-GPU capable power supply that's 80 plus platinum certified and a 3 year warranty. Not bad at all. I am far from an entry level system builder, but I would still check one of these out for myself.

    this sounds great. The "value" bit scared me initially, but after reading the specs and such I'm pleasantly surprised.

    Now all I need are prices...

    neither of those PSU's are 80+ Platinum I see a bronze and an 80+ standard but no Platinum
    and Ecos don't have any Platinum listings for thermaltake either

    My point exactly.. there's no reason why Cheap PSU's can't be atleast 80+ bronze or even silver
