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.

  • Thermaltake TR2 RX 750Watt Power Supply Review



    By now the world should know that the power supply is one of the most important parts of a PC, and you want to make sure you pick a quality unit.  There are several things to look for in a PSU such as power rating, quality of construction, and general options.  It may not be obvious but picking a power supply with slightly more wattage than you need is a good thing, not only will your system run cooler, but components will last longer as well. 

    Quality of construction and features really speaks to the reputation of the manufacture.  In this review we will be looking at the mid-range power supply from Thermaltake called the TR2 RX 750W. This is a 750w PSU designed for mid-level gaming and enthusiast systems with a relatively attractive price point.

    The Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W is a modular PSU in the standard ATX form factor to ensure compatibility with the majority of cases on the market.
    The TR2 RX 750W features a matte gray finish and honeycomb exhaust vents near the power socket.  Cooling is handled by a single 140mm variable speed fan located at the bottom of the unit.
    Not all cables on the TR2 RX 750W are modular. Permanent cables include the main 24pin power cable, the 4+4(8pin) 12v CPU connector, and 2x PCI-Express 6+2 (8pin) graphic card connections.
