The Thermaltake Toughpower PF1 ARGB 1200 W is a high-performance power supply equipped with numerous connectors and RGB lighting. Its main downsides are the high price and aggressive fan speed profile under even mid-level loads.

I have this one since nearly a year. I find it not noisy at all (maybe I never heat it close to high fan speed levels).

An important aspect that I didn't see mentioned (forgive me if it is) is it's incompatibility with older UPS. I had to buy a new generation one, as my
APC Back-UPS PRO BR1500G-GR would not power it.
Instead I had to go for a much rarer type like the
CyberPower CP1500EPFCLCD.

Most likely it needs a pure sine UPS and not a stepped one. I am sorry but for the moment I don't conduct this UPS test.
