This is a really nice power supply for the money. I have bought several of them and they work very quietly and efficiently.

If you are unfamiliar with how to install a new power supply you might want to follow these 10 simple steps:

1 Unscrew the four screws holding the old power supply to the case.
2 Pull the old power supply out and rest it on a corner of the case.
3 Put the new power supply into the case.
4 Follow the first cord of the old power supply noting the color of the wires and where they are located. You might want to write this down if your memory isn't the greatest.
5. Find a cord on the new power suppy that matches and plug it in to the empty socket. Push down hard to make sure the cord is well seated.
6. Keep doing this untill all cords on the old power supply are unplugged and replaced with cords from the new power supply.
7. Screw in the four screws to secure the power supply to the case.
8. Plug in the power supply
9. Turn on the switch to the power supply.
10. Turn on the computer.

The whole process takes less than 10 minutes and with the low cost of the Thermaltake power supply it makes it cost-and-effort effective to upgrade your old power supply.

There is so much controversy regarding Dell power supplies, I thought I would review this item. I have installed this item in a Dell Dimension 8200. This computer is a 1.8 Ghz Pentium 4. It previously had a Dell 250 W power supply. This new power supply is working flawlessly! I changed out the smaller P.S., because I am upgrading to a XFX6600Gt graphics card, which requires 300 W minimum. I did have some concerns, after the erronous cautions from Dell support (India). But all is well. I notice that the dual fan configuration is very quiet.

Also, only one caveat. You will need a nibbling tool to remove some rear case sheet metal, so you can clear the rocker switch on this P.S. Not a big problem once you see how it performs.

This is the only choice for a quality low cost power supply. It has the power you need for all but the hardcore computers. The leads are long and mesh wrapped and it has all the different ones needed for the newer computers. It is also very quiet. A popular parts selling company has sold tons of these and had stellar reviews on it. I have bought and replaced many power supplies in the last five years and this has been my favorite. I have one running my computer right now.

Definitely a good power supply based on the specs. It also is very quiet which is great! I ran into 2 issues when installing it last night.
The 20/24 pin motherboard connector is a little odd. You have to bend the wire all the way to the left to get the 4 pin add-on to lock in place. This was a little odd, and you probably want to tie this cable in that position so those 4 pins do not work there way out of the connection.
Second item was the SATA power connection. There is one cable for 2 SATA devices. Unfortunately the two connectors are only 3 inches apart. This is a problem for building an HTPC system, where the SATA hard disk is not right below my SATA DVD drive. Not an issue if you are using a regular DVD/CD drive.

Pros:
- Despite having two 80mm fans, this PSU is really quiet.
- All of the cables are wrapped in a mesh sleeve for a nice, clean look.
- Powerful enough for my older system: Athlon x2 4200+, 8800GTS 320MB, 250GB HDD, DVD burner.
- Inexpensive.

Cons:
- There are only two SATA connectors and they're really close together. Forget about having a SATA DVD in the top bay and a SATA HDD at the bottom bay on a larger case.
- Mesh sleeving makes the cables a bit thicker and stiffer to position in the case.
- Minor issue specific to Antec P series case owners, but the power cables weren't long enough to snake through the cable management system on my Antec P-182. I had to just drape the cables over my motherboard and video card.

I upgraded the worn down power supply in my Dell Dimension 8200, and this model was perfect. Very quiet and stays cool. Only one minor issue...the power switch isn't flat against the back of my Dell unit, so I just shaved the top of the switch off (since it is not needed anyway, and cannot be accessed unless I cut a hole in the case). Otherwise, plenty of cables and plenty of power. I would highly recommend this particular model if you are needing a more powerful power supply/upgrade to your older Dell Dimension.

Style Name: TR2Size: 600W Verified Purchase
Brand wise Thermaltake is not a horrendous power supply brand, but they aren't Corsair/Seasonic by any means.

I bought the TR600 since the 12v rails had a total of 43 amps for ~$50 (price tracker indicates this power supply has been on sale for as low as $39 before).
Not a bad deal, pretty decent considering the Corsair CX600 has 46 amps on the 12v, and CoolerMaster Extreme Power Plus 600W only has 36A split across its 12v rails. On the other hand, this power supply does not have an 80 Plus efficiency rating.

The system I ran this Power Supply on:
Intel Core i5 2500k @ 3.3Ghz(Stock)
ASUS P8P67 PRO Motherboard
4x4 16gb Viper 3 Series @ 1600mhz
2 x AMD Radeon HD 6850
Kingston V300 60gb SSD
3 x Western Digital 500gb HDD (2 in Raid 0)

Benchmarks from Andantech, TechSpot, Guru3D all show benchmarks with total system power consumption with 6850s in CrossfireX at about 400watts so there should've been more than enough headroom from this power supply.

After about 8 months the power supply started making a very audible high pitched whining sound (pain inducing), but only for a few seconds after turning on the computer (doesn't make noise under load, just makes noise for a couple of seconds after turning on the power supply). Its quite strange because after turning off the computer and turning it on again, the whining doesn't come back unless the computer is turned off for at least ~6 hours. However after a week of dealing with it, its now progressed to a whining that occurs for up to 5 minutes before stopping. I'm not going to take anymore risks with this PSU and have ordered a replacement (different brand of course).

TL;DR
After 8 months the power supply makes pain inducing whines like bad car brakes for about 5 minutes before stopping.
