We would like to thank Thermaltake for supplying the Toughpower Grand 1200W review sample.
In 1999 a company named Thermaltake entered the computer hardware market. As the company’s name implies, Thermaltake’s primary focus at least at the beginning was at thermal management products, however later they also got involved in chassis, power supplies and various computer accessories manufacturing. In 2008 they entered into the Server/Industrial PC market with three major product lines: rackmount chassis, server fixed & redundant power supplies and server CPU cooling thermal management solutions.
Thermaltake’s PSU arsenal is quite rich since they have seven main PSU series consisting of 40 models in total! In today’s review we will test the strongest member of the Toughpower Grand series. This series consists of four members with capacities spanning from 650W to 1200W. All meet the 80Plus Gold requirements and are able to deliver their full power even at 50°C. The Toughpower Grand 1200W (or TPG-1200M) is equipped with eight PCIe connectors, so it can support up to four high-end VGAs, has a propriety flower-shape fan which promises increased airflow and lower noise output and is backed up by seven years warranty. Unfortunately all above doesn’t come cheap since the price tag of the Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200 W is almost $300, a considerable amount of money even for a high capacity and top performing PSU.
