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



    Well, testing a PSU using an overclocked quad-core processor and a seriously powerful Radeon HD 5870 is something to brag about, and the Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W handled everything great.  Heat output was about what we had expected; the exhaust air was warm, but not blistering hot.  This alone is a good sign meaning that power is being used instead of becoming excess heat. 
    When looking for a power supply it is always a good idea to buy more than what you need.  In a typical desktop or gaming system 550 to 600 watts may be more than enough power.  However as system load extends beyond the 80% of capacity the total power efficiency begins to decrease, excess heat is produced, and overall stability becomes questionable.

    Picking a PSU that is slightly larger than what you need will alleviate this and ensure your system to run cool and quiet.  The Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W is a good match in these situations and provides a little extra for when you plan to upgrade down the road.
