  • Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB 850W Power Supply Review



    There are several important aspects to building or even upgrading a computer.  While things like motherboard and video card are important for performance you really can’t skimp on power supply.  Seriously you cannot.  Well, you can but, it is not something I would recommend as it might be one of the only components that can live through hardware upgrades and is also responsible for all of the power delivery to your entire system.  Simply put, going cheap on a PSU so you can spend $900 USD on a video card doesn’t make much sense.

    In this review I’ll be showing you the Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB 850W PSU.  Now, you might be saying to yourself.  RGB? Isn’t that just for breakfast cereals and crunchy people who cannot operate a Dremel?  Well, yes, yes it is however, in the context of building a kick ass PC using the latest in LED lighting technology why not extend that to your power supply.

    You know, to show your dedication.
