    Default Thermaltake Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W

    Lately we've started seeing a few more 80Plus Platinum certified power supplies, and today we're looking at one from Thermaltake: the Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W. It's a rather stealthy aesthetic, but good looks and nice features will only get you so far though, as performance is what matters in the end. Coming with a price tag of $290, the Thermaltake Toughpower XT Platinum 1275W certainly brings a premium price tage, but does it have the top performance to match? Let's find out.

    Great review Jake.
    Short cables seem to be a complaint with a lot of PSUs these days, and for the price they're asking, this shouldn't be an issue.
    Otherwise it looks like a heck of a nice PSU.

    Good review Jake
    7 year warranty is really good, and despite the high price I have always had good luck with their Tough Power series
    24" cables would be perfect for a monster build but I really wish they would do a better job at sleeveing especially at the prices they charge.
