Antec has always been known for making very reliable power supplies. They have done something a little interesting with their CP-Series power supplies though. They are designed differently so they are larger than most power supplies, which means they will only fit in certain cases. Those cases include Antec’s Twelve Hundred, P183, and P193. The larger size does allow for a better internal design, but is that worth limiting what cases you can put the power supply in? Antec has sent us their 850W version of the CP-Series, let’s put it to the test and see if it’s worth it!
Not everyone needs a particularly flashy or super powerful power supply unit. The Thermaltake TR2 series caters to users who need functionality, but have no need for bells and whistles beyond modular cabling and 80PLUS certification. The TR2 RX subseries delivers the modular cable management savvy users expect these days. ThinkComputers checks out the TR2 RX 750W in this review.
The Seasonic X series is the Taiwanese OEM power supply establishment’s first commercial retail series to achieve 80PLUS Gold certification. This means that the unit is 87% efficient at 20%, 50%, and 100% load. It supports multiple video cards, and uses a patented system which supplies at a lower amperage the same power using a voltage regulation module. ThinkComputers has the review of the 650W version, a medium-wattage, modular unit.
Thermaltake’s cases are usually quite flashy, but its power supplies have been traditionally pretty standard black boxes. There are a few which break this mold, and the Evo Blue series is one of them. ThinkComputers got its hands on the 75oW version for review. The Evo Blue features modular cables and color-changing LEDs in addition to great cooling and a more attractive design. The review is here.

ThinkComputers liked BFG’s 800W and 680W units reviewed several months ago. These non-modular units were well-received by the enthusiast community and retailers. BFG is back with the EX series, in 1000W and 1200W variations. The EX series features modular connectors, a lifetime warranty, and a technique for drastically improving efficiency called Frequency Conversion. ThinkComputers has the review.
ThinkComputers really liked Corsair’s TX 750W unit when we reviewed it a while ago. The TX series was a consumer level power supply, but this new HX series is a different animal. It’s a professional and enthusiast line of power supplies meant for overclockers and other folks who needs rock-solid stability and modularity. Among other things, the HX 750W has 12 SATA connectors-more than enough for that ultimate file server you’ve been wanting to build. ThinkComputers has the review.
Today we are taking a look at the Thermaltake Toughpower XT 750W Modular Power Supply. The Toughpower XT series power supplies incorporate five Thermaltake cutting-edge innovations: FanDelayCool for thorough cooling and extended lifetime, S.P.T. Indicator for real-time monitoring, S.F.C. Quiet for the quietest operation, 12Vin1 for the best computability, and High Quality Japanese Capacitors for superb performance and reliability. This is many steps above the original Toughpower series power supplies. The XT series are even 80Plus Bronze certified!
FSP Group is a little known name to most enthusiasts, primarily because the company has only recently put its own name on its products. Founded in 1993 in Taiwan, FSP has been operating for years as an ODM, supplying OEMs with units for consumer computers or supplying more well-known companies with units to be rebadged and sold, including power supplies from Antec, Sparkle Power, OCZ, Nexus and Zalman. Its own line of Fortron Source was popular, as well. Notably, FSP designed the first fanless power supply and was one of the first to have an 80% efficient model. ThinkComputers received the 700W version of the Power Mod series.
