Power supplies might be the least glamorous part of a PC build, yet ironically enough, some would argue they're the single most important component you can pick out, especially if you intend to overclock and/or are rocking high-end hardware. Unlike cases and peripherals, most PSUs aren't all that flashy, but Thermaltake's new Toughpower XT 1275W Platinum Snow Edition bucks that trend by adding a bit of "white ecstasy on PC performance," the company says.

The Snow Edition unit is a nearly all-white PSU, including the fan blades, which comprise the 14cm dual-ball bearing fan with three fan modes (Fanless; Silent; and Cooling). You don't have worry yourself over which mode is appropriate, Thermaltake says its Smart Fan Control system automatically detects the ambient temperature of the PSU and adjusts the fan mode and speed accordingly.


According to the spec sheet, Thermaltake's newest PSU offers more than good looks. It's rated at a whopping 1,257W, more than enough for even dream machine worthy builds, and is 80 Plus Platinum certified to boot, which means it boasts 89-94 percent efficiency at 20-100 percent loads.


Thermaltake went with a dual +12V rail design, with 45A diverted to 12V1 and 65A allocated to 12V2. Other features include eight PCI-E connectors for support for up to 4-way Crossfire and Nvidia SLI, 105C solid state Japanese capacitors, and modular cabling with a boatload of connectors at your disposal.

No word on price or availability.

Pardon me; but DAMN, that is a sweet looking PSU, wish the frame open picture was zoomable so I could see the brands on the transistors etc, although I probably know them for a top of the line PSU. I like the cage as well don't get me wrong it looks nice all the way around!

Agreed, It looks like a worthy PSU. How about  review?
