February 6, 2012 - Tapei based Thermaltake have announced an expansion of their Toughpower SMART range and are introducing a new mainstream 80+ Gold certified PSU's.

Toughpower GOLD Series

Toughpower GOLD is Thermaltake's new range of high efficiency mainstream PSU's which will be available in 550W, 650W and 750W variants, catering to most single and dual-graphics card configurations. Toughpower GOLD PSU's are, as the name suggests, 80+ Gold efficiency certified; going non-modular allows them to keep costs down and maintain high efficiency.

As you would expect from high quality PSU's the Toughpower GOLD features 100% Japanese Capacitors for high long-term reliability. Toughpower GOLD PSU's also feature active CLAMP circuitry; over-current, over-voltage, under-voltage, over-power, over-temp and short-curcuit protections; and a fluid dynamic bearing fan for low-noise operation.

Connectors and Approx cable lengths:

Note that the 550W Toughpower GOLD model only supports 2*6+2pin PCIe connectors; 650W and 750W models support 4 2*6+2pin connectors for dual-card Crossfire or SLI.

Toughpower SMART Bronze

Thermaltake's Toughpower SMART series of PSU's are to gain 750W and 850W models, adding to the 450W, 550W and 650W models available since November. Toughpower SMART Bronze PSU's are all 80+ Bronze certified and feature modular cabling for improved cable management; the new models offer four 6+2pin PCIe connectors for dual-graphics configurations. Noting market approval, Thermaltake have adopted flat modular cabling to further reduce cable clutter and allow users to assemble a system which looks as tidy as possible.

Connectors and Approx cable lengths:

Listed cable specifications for 750W and 850W models are identical.
