The Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W Gold is an almost fully modular PSU built by Enhance which runs about $200 though [H]ard|OCP has linked to a rather nice deal on the PSU at NewEgg right now. The PSU is for high end builds, the eight PCIe 6+2 connectors are backed by a single 12V rail capable of providing 100A, in other words every bit of power the PSU can offer. The overall impression that [H] had of this PSU once the testing was completed was that it was good, but not amazing. It did not fall short on performance but at the same time did not stand out in the crowd, if you can get this PSU on special it is certainly worth adding to your short list especially if you are sensitive to noise. It is not the most quiet kilowatt class PSU they have tested but the 135mm fan keeps the decibels reasonable.
For a completely different high end PSU, make sure to check out Lee's review of the fully modular High Power Astro GD 1200W.
"Thermaltake has traditionally shined when it comes to computer power supplies in excess of 1000 watts. But in the past these power supplies have often been very costly. Today we cover Thermaltake's new 1200 watt power supply that is currently selling for $139 after $30 MIR. Is it worth your hard earned dollars?"
