After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

  • Thermaltake Toughpower 775W Power Supply Review



    When building up a gaming or enthusiast system your time and money is often concentrated on making sure you get the most powerful video card and processor you can afford.  This is natural considering those two items typically dictate total performance.  The thing many people forget is that performance cannot be realized unless you have enough power to drive everything, which means you need a quality PSU.

    In this review we will be looking at the latest PSU from Thermaltake called the Toughpower XT 775W.  The Toughpower series has been around for quite some time and was one of the first PSUs to reach the 1200W mark.  Since then Thermaltake has spent considerable time revamping the Toughpower line to improve performance, efficiency, and noise control.
