Final Thoughts and Conclusions

If you are in the market for a high-output power supply in the 1,200 watt range, the new Thermaltake Toughpower unit deserves a very serious look.  The Toughpower 1,200W PSU exhibited very good voltage regulation and stability along with excellent efficiency.  Active PFC, modular sleeved cables, and a 5-year warranty are all excellent features.

 

The Toughpower 1,200W PSU has four +12V outputs, two of which are high-capacity (+12v3 and +12V4) rated for up to 36A each.  This can eliminate potential problems with overloading specific +12V outputs when using various combinations of power hungry hardware, especially some of the newest video cards.
