I bought a Thermaltake TR2 BlackWidow 850w on sale at bestbuy for $129.99 USD, and after reading some reviews here and there
I am starting to think maybe I should return it for a full refund while I can (Tomorrow is the last day I can return it to BestBuy and get full refund). So I already know what PSU I want to get, and I know it'll be better. But I just want some insight as if I should keep the TR2 BlackWidow, or just get the one I want (Corsair HX850W).

*THIS IS NOT A THREAD TO TELL ME WHAT KIND OF PSU I SHOULD GET, IT'S A THREAD FOR YOU TO TELL ME ABOUT THE THERMALTAKE 850W*

TT is only so so in PSU's could not find a decent review quickly for that unit so I suggest returning it since you can!
I know of plenty better choices if you want?

I will go one better and say it's junk. It's also completely overpriced. At least most trash models are priced what they are worth. That one should be in the ~$50 range. Even at that price I would never recommend one.

Notice where the TR2 and TR2 RX are listed.

The do not buy under any circumstances and replace it immediately if you do have one list.

Since you don't want any recommendations I will just list the brands you can trust. Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ and Antec. It's hard to go wrong with any of those brands.

Well congratulations.


Sorry to go off topic in your thread OP. Rolli59 will be one of only 2 people on these forums to reach the 150,000 point mark and that is pretty impressive. I think it should be 3 but Mousemonkey had some issues with points going backwards or something. But still, being number 2 out of 771,532 users is pretty awesome!

My TR2 RX 850w has survived for 5+ years and three builds starting with a Phenom II X4 955 and dual 5870s, an FX-8120 build, and now an FX-8320 @ 4.74Ghz and dual 270Xs without ever so much as a hiccup--I guess I just got lucky :/
