Although inside 2010 and 2011 (so far) we have seen a large number of 80 Plus Gold certified PSUs by the end of the year the 5 main players in the market have already made plans to release their 80 Plus Platinum certified power supplies which as expected will cost quite a lot more than gold ones. Of course the real benefits of having a platinum certified power supply over gold are small so i understand what many people working in these companies mean when they say that the world is not ready yet. In any case today we will be testing the latest Thermaltake Power Supply Unit, the ToughPower Grand 850W.
Since the beginning of Thermaltake in 1999, they have been at the forefront of creating new and exciting products at a time where most computer users were provided little to no choices for components that may seem irrelevant, but in reality crucial to the performance of a PC.

The Grand line of PSUs is the latest addition to the legendary ToughPower range of PSUs that has made Thermaltake one of the best companies in the field. Of course since this is an entirely new addition the units have a brand new design, several improvements over their brothers and the 80 Plus Gold Certification. Overall the Grand series of PSUs looks a lot more refined than the rest of the ToughPower range and that’s also something which should attract potential buyers. But since on paper everything is always excellent let’s see how well it does in the real world.
