Thermaltake Technology is pleased to announce its high performance line of power supply, Toughpower series, has been added an 80PLUS Silver power supply – Toughpower 700W (W0295). With Thermaltake’s commitment to offer users quality products, the 800W / 1200W (all 80PLUS Silver ready) will also be ready in Q2.

80 PLUS is a cutting-edge, electric utility-funded program whose mission is to integrate energy-efficient power supplies into desktop computers and servers. The 80PLUS Silver standard certifies PSU that has 85%, 88%, and 85% or higher energy efficiency rate at 20%, 50%, and 100% of loading, respectively. This requirement makes an 80 PLUS Silver certified power supply considerably more efficient than any other traditional 80 PLUS power supplies.

Very nice. Nice to see more PSU makers going for the certification. I Did notice on the 80 plus site that Corsair isnt a player on the gold or silver stage for certification. Im hoping that will change.

What war ... most PSU's today, are all great .

What all are looking for, are publicity around their brand ...

Funny enough one model only , can not make the brand as leader !! :D

^im saying this because it looks like psu makers are taking 80 plus levels seriously. you'll know that when most well known makers reach 90+, we're not there yet.

ps. do you buy a 700w that have 90+ or a one thats 80+? (assuming theres no big price gap)
