550W is a little on the low side for an X2. look for around 650-700 IMO.

In fact, according to the table, it's actually only a 500W unit. Tut tut Thermaltake!

No way that psu is good enough , look at the 12v , no where near what that vid card calls for . should look at 650 -700 watt psu just to make sure .14a on 1 and 15a on 12v2 , the card calls for at least 18a

It is an old design , look at the 5v rail 32 a . 6he tr2 line ain't great , years ago i had the tr2 430 watt and it was lucky if it could put out 350 .
they make good psu , just not that one , and not at that price !
