Thermaltake Toughpower GX1 600W Power Supply Review
Mike Sanders / 6 months ago
When building a system, or looking to replace your power supply, we have always considered it critically important to ensure that you go for a PSU that is both strong and reliable. There are, after all, far too many horror stories of people who went all out on their components and then cheap and nasty on the power supplies. A lot of whom have lived to regret it (unlike their PSU).
Fortunately, Thermaltake has always provided a quality product that never fails to meet (and exceed) your expectations. In this instance, we look at the Thermaltake Toughpower GX1. A 600W non-modular power supply that carries a gold-rated efficiency certification.

As this is a non-modular power supply, it’s critically important to know exactly what connectors are provided. Fortunately, Thermaltake has you covered.
While the connections you are provided with are limited, they are more than enough for any standard gaming PC. As such, you should easily be able to hook everything up with very little wasted. I must admit, however, I would’ve perhaps liked to have seen one more PCI-E connector.
