|Thermaltake TWV 500W PurePower PSU |
Thermaltake Technology was founded back in 1999 and is now the global leader of thermal solution. They are known for their high quality products worldwide and today the kind people at ThermalTake.com have kindly provided me with the high-end Thermaltake TWV Power Supply that is rated at 500 W. As many of you know, todays high-end computers can no longer run on 300W PSUs, specially if you have an high-end Graphics card or a power hungry CPU. If you are looking at a Power Supply that is very appealing to the eye and has top performance then look no further.
The Purepower TWV 500W series comes with a 120 mm Blue LED fan that is almost noiseless and a honeycomb air vent, which together provide unmatched thermal performance, that is typical of Thermaltake. This power supply also comes with modularized cable management, which means that you only have to use the cables that you need, this design is truly remarkable, it eliminates cable clutter and significant improves the airflow in your case, the cables are sleeved as well. In the bundle you also get the Thermaltake Total Watts meter module that fits in your 5,25 bay, with the total watts meter module you can actually see the total system power consumption, control the system fan and the power supply fan. The TWV 500W also has 2 separate +12V outputs, 2 PCI-Express connectors, making this the perfect choice for SLI and 4 SATA connectors which may satisfy most people. You don't need a 24 to 20 pin adapter with the TWV 500W, it has the new 24(20) pin main power design which is compatible with both Intel & AMD series of motherboards.
The package arrived to me via FedEx and was in perfect condition.
I immediately opened the package; I was as excited like a little child on Christmas Eve :)

It is certainly is a generous package.
Here you have a better view of the 120 mm fan and the Total Watt Meter Module which is made entirely in aluminum. The 120 mm case fan is indeed powerful, the fan rpm is 1300-3000 rpm and has an air flow of max 81,62 CFM, that's a lot of air.
Included cables are:
- 1 24(20)-pin main power connector
- 1 4-pin +12V connector
- 9 4-pin peripheral power connectors and 2 floppy drive connectors
- 4 5-pin SATA connectors
- 2 6-pin PCI Express Graphic Card connectors
The TWV comes in black color as you can see in the picture, the weight for this powerful PSU is only 2.0 Kg.
Here you can see the powerful 120 mm fan that helps cool down the TWV. It also has a beautiful blue led, too bad the case fan doesn't fit in my Antec case
The back of the TWV, here you can see the large honeycomb air vent for optimal thermal performance.
