Thermaltake Toughpower PF1 650w Platinum PSU Review
Mike Sanders / 3 years ago
Thermaltake has undertaken quite an aggressive production stance in recent years by expanding its development into more and more aspects of PC components. Chassis designs, memory, coolers, custom loop, etc. Put simply, there isn’t much they’re not into and, as we understand it, these might just be the beginning of much bigger plans for the future. Undoubtedly, however, one of their most reliable ‘bread and butter’ money makers is their wide and varied range of power supplies. And, it should be noted, with good reason.
Not only are they often designed to the highest of standards, but through their continued development, I don’t think it’s unfair to put them in the same tier as other brands you may consider ‘market leaders’ for PSU products.
Thermaltake Toughpower PF1 Platinum Power Supply
So, with the recent launch of the Thermaltake Toughpower PF1, what do we have this time around? Well, while it largely carries all the excellent features you would expect from a TT power supply, this one is certainly something a bit special. Why, you ask? Well, perhaps it’s the small matter of this particular range being 80-plus Platinum efficiency rated.
Put simply, this power supply has been designed for performance and, based on prior experience, we have no doubt that Thermaltake will not disappoint us here!
What Does Thermaltake Have to Say?
“The Toughpower PF1 Platinum Series comes in 850W/750W/650W and delivers 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency. Besides the fundamental features listed below, The PF1 Platinum Series has two other critical characteristics – compact size and our new board technology. With the small footprint of 140mm (D) x 86mm (H) x 150mm (L), the PF1 prides its ample space for cable management. The new board technology offers single-sided SMD which all IC chips are set to only one side, allowing the heat to only be accumulated on one side so the entire board can be covered and cooled down by the 120mm ultra-quiet Hydraulic Bearing Fan.”
