Quoted from Thermaltake Silent PurePower TWV480 Reviews:Check out these quotes from Thermaltake Silent PurePower TWV480 reviews & previews
"With a total of 480 watts, 550 watts peak, the Thermaltake TWV480 is ready to take on almost any load a computer may throw at it. The Mesh sleeving is something no power supply should ever be without. SATA hard drive power, and the total lack of the Auxiliary 6-pin connector make this an excellent product. Im not sold on the bay device however. The wattage readout may be good for seeing the change in watts used, but probably are not real life loads. The proprietary nature of the fan controls is acceptable, but not very friendly."
"Not only this type of product is the only one in the market, but it also performs exceptionally. It only leaves us with no more thoughts wondering if the PSU provides enough power. In addition to the the viewer, we were able to control the PSU fan, which makes this product one of the best PSU combo options to date."
"Thermaltake has put together a solid package with the TWV480 Total Watts PSU. The PSU unit feels girthy and from our testing seems to rival some of the other leading powersupplies on the market. The cable sleeving is a nice touch aesthetically as well as functionally. One of the features that sets the TWV480 apart is the LED readout of powerdraw which should be of interest with a lot of the DIY guys. The only real outstanding issue is the fan noise which needs to be more inline with other powersupplies. For anyone looking for a solid powersupply the TWV480 is a good pick but just a touch loud."
"Certainly Thermaltake isn't trying to sell this power supply as anything more than an ATX12V1.3 power supply, and it is a very good ATX12V power supply. But when you entice the buying public with bling and gizmos, slap a 400W label on it, and then bundle a 20-to-24-pin adapter, you invite disaster."
"The power supply produced excellent numbers across all tests with solid voltages and stable rails. Under normal conditions the TWV480 was quiet but under high loads and/or warm ambient air conditions the cooling fans will speed up and become noticeable. I found the Total Watts Viewer to be a useful feature (Ill admit, I was skeptical at first). The digital display proved to be quite accurate for measuring the combined DC output. Its interesting to see how much difference adding an extra stick of RAM, changing the CPUs V-core, or swapping video cards can make!"
