Thermaltake is a well-known name in the computer hardware industry and also the parent company of a few other brands such as Tt eSPORTS and Luxa2; they even have their own eSports team which was founded in 2010, Tt Apollos. Thermaltake manufacture a wide range of products from PC Cases, power supplies, coolers, storage solutions and even PC accessories such as fan controllers, dust filers and even LED strips. Lately Thermaltake has been taking the world by storm with their Core range of cases which are not only highly modular, they are also LCS certified which is Thermaltake’s stamp of approval for them to be able to accommodate custom water cooling loops and builds.
Speaking of water cooling, Thermaltake also have their Water 3.0 range of AIO liquid CPU coolers, the best of which is the ultimate which features a 360mm radiator and superb performance but the fun doesn’t stop there, oh no! The whole reason Thermaltake started their LCS certification is for the simple fact they will be releasing their own line of customer water cooling gear for those who want to create custom loops and have a bit more control.
However, today I will be taking a look at the Thermaltake TR2 600w power supply. The TR2 range features non-modular PSUs ranging from 450w to 600w and feature an 80+ bronze certification. The TR2 is designed around a single 12V rail and has a 120mm RPM controlled fan to make sure that it doesn’t overheat while at the same time operating as quietly as possible. The elongated cables on the TR2 will allow for anyone using it to properly route them out of the way, which not only will help with thermal performance but will leave the build looking cleaner once it is completed. The TR2 range looks to be a good value for the money line of power supplies for users who are not looking to break the bank, but still want performance from a brand they can trust.
Before we get into the review, let’s take a look at a bit more detailed explanation on some of the features I mentioned:
