Whenever my road brings me close to an electronics store i almost always go inside not only because i want to see if there's something new in the market that I’ve missed but also because i enjoy listening (curiosity i guess) to what consumers ask from the sales people. That of course has led me to realize that not all sales people have the necessary knowledge needed in order to guide consumers to the right choice (not their fault really, not in the times we live in). For example just two weeks ago i overheard a sales person recommend a 600W PSU to someone who had just bought a brand new MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 for his Core i7 system. True an 600W can easily handle that card (since it has a max power consumption of less than 300W) but the total power draw of the system obviously depends on the rest of the components so when the only thing you know is that the consumer owns an Intel Core i7 4790 then you shouldn't take any chances. In the end it seems that the consumer knew his way a lot better than the sales person so he left with an 750W power supply unit instead a model by Thermaltake which coincidentally i had yet to get my hands on. Today we'll be taking a look at the new ToughPower Grand TPG-0750M (or ToughPower Grand Gold Fully Modular as some call it) by Thermaltake which finally found its way over.

With the new ToughPower Grand 750W TPG-0750M 80 Plus Gold Certified power supply unit Thermaltake pairs an 100% modular cabling design with a single +12V rail (capable of outputting 62A of continuous power to feed even the most power hungry systems) and backs it up with a full set of electrical protections and a 7-year extended warranty. Also from its looks not only did Thermaltake place much weight on the design of the unit but they have also made use of flat low-profile modular cables in order to increase airflow inside the case and reduce space needed for cable management something which should appeal to many users out there (although we've seen it quite a few times in the past). Since however it's been a while from the last time we've had a PSU by Thermaltake on our test bench let's not spend any more time in the introduction page.
