Thermaltake Toughpower 1000W PSU
Now before I move on to the rest of the power supply here's a quick look at the advertised features
Stable 1000W continuous output (with peak power of 1100W)
Four independent & dedicated +12V rails(12V1,12V2,12V3,12V4) provides superior
performance for PC system. (combined loading of 82A)
Three 8pin and three 6pin PCI-E connectors design supports Multi-GPU Graphic card.
Supports Dual Core CPU / Quad Core CPU / Nvidia SLI & Quad SLI and all Multi-Core
Modularized Cable Management to eliminate clutter and improve airflow inside the case.
Independent Voltage Circuit: offers unflappable current delivery under heavy load.
Strict voltage regulation (±3%): provides steady voltage for system.
Active Power Factor Correction (PF>0.99) and high efficiency (up to 87%).
Industrial grade components (capacitor, transformer, etc)
High reliability: MTBF>120,000 hours.
Quiet and reliable 14cm ball-bearing fan.
Protections: Over Current, Over Voltage, Under Voltage, Over Temperature, Over Power,
and Short-Circuit protection.
Safety / EMI Approvals: CE, CB, TUV, FCC, UL, CUL, and BSMI certified.
Cooling: 140mm fan, 2300RPM, 16dBA at 1300 RPM.
Efficiency: up to 87%
And here's a look at the output specifictions:
Ripple & Noise *2
The back of the power supply features lots of holes to let the hot air out and a fairly big red power button which lights up when your system is turned on. By the way, one of the things I discovered while checking out the manual is that the +5VSB voltage rail features a sustained 3A output, allowing you to charge USB devices even when your system isn't running.
One big 140mm fan cools the Toughpower 1000W PSU. According to the specs this fan produces only 16dBA at 1300RPM but when it spins faster (max 2300RPM) this will obviously increase.
