ThinkComputers loves ThermalTake's lines of cooling supplies and cases. The company is known for its "think of everything" packaging and subtle stylishness of its products. ThermalTake provided ThinkComputers with a 650W version of its new ToughPower QFan line of power supply units. We expected this power supply to sputter when connected to our enthusiast-level gaming rig-the results of our testing are in the review.

The Thermaltake Toughpower 650W arrives in a white box with the unit prominently displayed. A simple text logo complements the picture, allowing the picture to be accentuated. The bottom of the box, or the side, rather, lists the above specifications and highlights the unit's modular cables and specially-designed, ultra-quiet fan.

Inside the box is the unit itself, some manuals, a fan power connector adapter, a PSU vibration dampener, and a Velcro-secured bag with the modular cables inside. There is also a box with the power cable and some screws inside it.
