Features:

 

Exactly as printed on the box.

 

  • High quality Japanese made capacitors: provide superb performance and reliability.
  • S.P.T. indicator: indicates standby, PG signal and temperature status of the power supply.
  • FanDelayCool: FDC cooling function can be selected to adjust the amount of time the cooling fans keep running after system shutdown which effectively cools down parts and hardware inside the PSU and PC case.
  • 12Vin1 rail: powerful single 12V rail provides best compatibility for latest components.
  • Gold plated connectors for superior conductivity.
  • Meets 80 PLUS efficiency requirements: Eco-design for less heat and lower energy bills.
  • TT5 Years Warranty: Thermaltake quality 5-years parts and labour warranty.
  • 14cm ball bearing cooling fan with Japanese made 8mm bearing system.
  • Modular cable management: improves internal airflow and reduces system clutter.
  • Compliance with Intel ATX 12V 2.3 & SSI EPS 12V 2.92 standards.
  • Supports dual 8 pin PCI-E & dual 6 pin PCI_E connectors for next generation graphics cards.
  • Guaranteed to deliver stable continuous output at 50°C environment.
  • Universal AC input 100V~240V and Active PFC (PF value up to 99%).
  • Dimensions: 5.9"(W) x 3.4"(H) x 6.3"(L);150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 160mm(L)

 

Further features that add to or expand on ones already mentioned that are explained on the packaging and are worthy of listing:

 

12Vin1

As the +12V rails deliver the major power to many of the components in a modern PC system, it is important to ensure each +12V rail provides adequate current for the relevant components. Inadequate current in any rail or poor distribution of current among the rails may lead to serious compatibilty problems. Thermaltake understands your worries of the compatibilty between PSU and your system, so we implement a pure and powerful single +12V rail to provide the best compatibility for your PC.

 

S.P.T. Indicator

Traditional power supplies tell you nothing about the status of your PSU, so users find no way to protect their power supply against failure. To help you monitor your power supply, Toughpower XT series utilises S.P.T. indicator to indicate the standby mode, the power good signal, and the temperature of your PSU, bringing you real time monitoring over the power supply.

 

FanDelayCool

Thermaltake Lab. after years of careful tests and experiments, has discovered many of the PSU failures are caused by the fans immediate stop after powering off. To better protect your power supply, FanDelayCool, derived from high end projectors cooling fan, enables users to control how long the 14cm fan should continue to operate (up to 30 secondS) after system shutdown. This is to assure all components inside the power supply to be thoroughly cooled off.

 

S.F.C. Quiet

Noise can be annoying and even harmful to human health. To bring the best comfortability to users, Thermaltake's designers minimise the noise generated by our products to the lowest level. All Toughpower power supply units' 14cm dual ball bearing cooling fan is equipped with S.F.C. Quiet technology so that the fan always operates at optimal speed (according to the temperature inside the power supply unit) for the quietest performance.

 

High Quality Japanese Capacitor

Capacitors play very important roles in a power supply unit. Poor capacitors may lead to shorter lifetime, system instability, voltages fluctuating, and even damage the power supply unit. Toughpower XT series, built to the highest standard of quality, has implemented the highest quality capacitors on the primary side and also the secondary side. All the high quality capacitors in the Toughpower XT power supply units are Japanese made and have the highest level of workmanship.
