Thermaltake 750watt W0382RU PSU

Tigerdirect has a Thermaltake 750 watt psu with an instant rebate down to $65 its seems to be good, and should be better than the raidmax 500watt i got now. I know 850 watts is overkill with a single gpu, but its similar priced to a corsair/ocz 600 watt psu, or 500 watt seasonic pcp&c, etc

System specs in sig, just wondering if thermaltake psus r good quality and worth spending $65 on it instead of a diff brand less wattage psu?

    "Thermaltake TR2 RX 750 W is, according to our methodology, a flawed product that must be avoided at all costs. It can’t deliver its labeled wattage at high temperatures, but this is not the worst of it: ripple and noise level are way above the maximum allowed when you pull 80% or more from the unit’s labeled capacity (i.e., 600 W and above), overloading your components (especially electrolytic capacitors from the motherboard and video cards), which can cause your PC to present an erratic behavior (crashes and random resets) and, under extreme conditions, damage components."
  2. There are a lot of good quality PSUs in the $60-70 range....better than that Thermaltake:
    1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151094
    2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371030 Best deal right now at $45 for a stellar PSU based on the Seasonic S12II-520 platform.

    5. You can even get a Modular Rosewill Capstone 550M: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182262

    I'd take any of those PSUs over that TT 750W.
  3. The Thermaltake TR2 RX 750 Watt Power Supply is one of five Thermaltake models that made the PSU Lemon List that I maintain. Here is a link to the Lemon List so you'll know which psu's to avoid:

    The Lemon List has brief comments about problems and issues discovered during competent technical reviews. Links to the technical reviews are also provided.
  4. Okay down to 3, the Corsair 600w builder, Rosewill 630watt green, and rosewill capstone 550m, any good reason to pick one? the corsair had a rebate, the green series has $10 off and the capstone has gold 80 plus
  5. I took a look at your system specs. You listed one XFX Radeon HD 6770 video card. Acording to AMD a 450 watt power supply with one 6 pin cable is more than sufficient to run your system.

    Here is a link to PC Power Supply Recommendations:

    Scroll down to the brands and models you are interested in and follow the links to the competent technical reviews.
  6. i want to leave room for upgrade in gpu and stuff
  7. If the limited time offer stays until fri when i can order seems to be the capstone
  8. The Capstone's are great little PSUs. From a quality perspective I wouldn't have a problem putting any one of those PSUs in a PC that I was building. Choose the one you want for looks or modularity.
