Thermaltake Toughpower DPS G 850W Review@Insidehardware.it

October 17, 2014 - by Sergio Martorana   Thermaltake is a Taiwanese company founded in Taipei in January 1999, specializing in the production of products dedicated to the so-called "computer DIY" (do it yourself), with particular attention to gamers, overclockers, and enthusiast. Among them, the fans with some experience and knowledge, know how this brand represents one of the historical realities of the industry, was born in a time when a cabinet or cooler design for their needs, there were significantly fewer brands than to those in business today.   The power supply market is increasingly full of proposals and production companies, but are actually still a few manufacturers today are able to count in its catalog of digital solutions. Thermaltake will be recalled along with Corsair, as the first brand to invest in technology DPS credited by us to be able to bring that breath of important news really able to push many enthusiast users to change their own power supply.   I do not have to wait much longer, but according to what is proposed today by DPS Toughpower 850 Watt G, we can already monitor real-time energy efficiency, output current, input power, the voltages on the three main rails, as well as monitor and manage the rotation speed of the fan and estimate the costs resulting from the consumption of our system. All possibilities rendered extremely simple and functional software from DPS App, not offered by the vast majority of the power supplies of the same category, do not yet have this technology.   However, it is our opinion that the DPS G Toughpower 850 Watt should be chosen not only for the implementation of the DPS system, from the moment Thermaltake has cleverly taken care of all aspects of a level absolutely excellent, crafting one of the best power supplies of the entire category. The design, componenstica implemented, and the invoice of the work, are in fact very good for this price range, supporting the choice of Thermaltake rely on CWT, as done by other leading brands. However, we can make three notes, at least given the caliber of the product: the efficiency levels are very high, though the 80 Plus Gold certification is now present in many lower-end products; some direct competitors are able to operate in semi-fanless, though it should be emphasized how the system of thermo-control implemented in Toughpower DPS G 850 Watts has guaranteed high levels of noise during the loading phase of our test; given the intended use of this product, we would have expected to find a second eps connector for additional power supply of the CPU, the only flaw in an otherwise large and well thought out connectivity on all fronts. The selling price of this power supply is approximately equal to 185 €, a figure considerably in the absolute sense but to be considered beneficial to a power system equipped with DPS data, whether the construction standards and the care taken in the production of a product guaranteed for seven years , accompanied by a set of absolute level, and in which also the design and the cable managment are at the highest levels.         Pros - Provision of high level - Design and components important - System DPS accompanied by excellent App - Good efficiency - 80 + Gold - Complete set of protections - Quiet fan, even at high loads - Fully modular - Flat Cables - Seven-year warranty - Great outfit - Original design     Cons - No fanless mode within certain loads - Only one connector eps   Read more: http://www.insidehardware.it/hardware/alimentatori/4073-thermaltake-toughpower-dps-g-850w-prima-recensione-al-mondo#content

Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate All-In-One Liquid Cooling System Review@FUTURELOOKS

September 26, 2014 - by Eric Garay     If you’ve been following the CPU world’s climb over the 4 GHz mountain, then you’re probably well aware of the challenges of cooling off that achievement. Thermaltake heard the screams of those cooling fans and has risen to the challenge, unveiling several new products at COMPUTEX 2014, to take on that challenge. Today, we get a chance to test their latest all in one solution called the Water 3.0 Ultimate, which is based on a 360mm radiator design, with triple 120mm fans. It promises to “exceed user expectations…with superior CPU protection.†But does it have the ability to cool without raising a raucous, or is it all just wind? Let’s find out!     Final Thoughts During any desktop project, the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate was pleasantly quiet and kept the hottest Intel Core i7-5960X 8-core processor surprisingly cool. The only time it was detectable was at first boot or when dealing with an overclocked processor. However, as is the case with any overclocked processor, fan noise is par for the course. The noise was unoffensive within the Thermaltake T81 Urban with doors open, and nearly inaudible when they were closed at all times. The bottom line here is that the Water 3.0 Ultimate will do an excellent job keeping today’s hottest multicore processors cool and quiet.   One observation noted during installation is that the tubing isn’t quite long enough to allow the radiator to be mounted in the front of a case. Only few shorter mid-towers will allow front installation so users will need to make sure the enclosure they choose supports a triple 120 (360mm) radiator. As of this article, the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate will cost you only $139 US, and currently has no rival. Considering that the Water 3.0 Extreme 240mm system costs $100 US/CA, the extra cost is well worth it to keep your processor cool and extremely quiet. Assuming that you have a case that will accommodate it. In the end, the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate earns its name through its performance, its price, and easy installation in most cases that support a 360mm radiator. And it might very well be the last all in one liquid cooling system you will ever buy, with a 3-year warranty on top. With that combination of pluses, it certainly earns a very rare Editors’ Choice from Futurelooks!     Pros Very affordable for an enthusiast level liquid cooler
Very good liquid cooling performance
Very quiet at stock PWM operation
Easy to set up
PWM fans perfect for full control
3 Year Warranty
Cons Not compatible with all cases
Short tubing might not allow front mount in some cases
Overall Rating: 9.0 / 10.0   Read more at: http://www.futurelooks.com/thermaltake-water-3-0-ultimate-liquid-cooling-system-review/3/

Thermaltake Core V51 Mid-Tower Case Review@HardOCP

October 1, 2014 - by Author: Steve Lynch Editor: Kyle Bennett   Thermaltake has some very lofty goals set for its new mid-tower case. Its primary goal is to deliver outstanding cooling performance which is always high on our priority list as well. Form and function both seem to be well served in this new Core V51 model as its performance profile is not hard on the eyes.   Today we are reviewing the Thermaltake Core V51 mid-tower case.   Thermaltake is a company that needs no introductions. To be honest, the reason most of us know the name is because we've probably, at some point in the past decade, had one (or more) of its products installed in our systems. In the early days, the Thermaltake brand was synonymous with performance cooling but, over the last few years, it is hard to find a segment of the industry the company hasn't expanded into.   We have featured numerous products from Thermaltake in our product reviews over the years, everything from the company's cooling products and award winning power supplies to audio components and its uniquely distinctive computer cases.     V51 Sound Test:   Conclusion   After spending some quality time with the Thermaltake Core V51, we have to say we are very impressed with this chassis. Obviously no case is perfect and there are a few things we'd like to see changed. Having to remove the front panel to access the bottom front filter is a bit of a pain but, if you are cleaning your filters, the front panel would have to be removed anyway. The case ships with three 120mm fans, it would have been nice to see the V51 ship with 140mm fans. The bottom rear filter, which is over nine inches in length and removes from the rear, requires moving your whole case to service and clean.   We very much like the direction Thermaltake has taken with the aesthetics of its Core line of cases. You'll notice that the Core V51 chassis shares a lot of the distinctive and stylish good looks of the Tt Core V1 mini-ITX case which we feel is a very good thing.   It's no secret that we love modular drive racks. This feature gives you the freedom to configure your system to perfectly suit your needs and Thermaltake has taken its modular drive rack design a step further by attaching the drive racks to the motherboard tray and making the 5.25" optical drive bays removable as well. Want to improve airflow from the front of your case to your GPUs? Remove one or more drive racks. Need space for a second or third water cooling loop? Take all the drive racks completely out and use the alternative mounting locations behind the motherboard tray.   Thermaltake chassis' have always excelled in the area of fan filtration systems. Including filters on all the intake fan mounting locations and the addition of the magnetic filter on the top of the chassis makes the Core V51 stand out from the crowd. The washable plastic filters in the front and bottom do a great job keeping dust from getting into your system. While the filter in the base of the case might is a bit difficult to remove once your system is in place, that has no impact on its ability to filter dust.   Enthusiasts are in and out of their cases more than any other group we know. We are constantly upgrading our hardware, troubleshooting or just trying different configurations. The swing out side panels make accessing hardware a snap. The ability to remove one or more hard drive racks and optical drive bays makes sure there is room for future expansion when it comes time to upgrade components. The multitude of configuration options definitely make the Core V51 a pleasure to work with.   The cooling performance of the Thermaltake Core V51 was phenomenal thanks in large part to the spacious design and the modular hard drive racks that allow you to not only customize your storage configuration but also to tailor air flow and fine tune your system's cooling performance. The multiple rows of slotted mounting holes in the top of the chassis is a stroke of genius as well.   The Bottom Line   Surviving our enthusiast testing process isn't a chore to be taken lightly. Every case that comes through the HardOCP labs is thoroughly examined, pushed to the limit, and tested in ways that we feel gives you an accurate assessment of the product's ability to perform in the manner you would use it at home. The Thermaltake Core V51 is a water cooling enthusiast's dream...possibly wet. The configuration possibilities of the Core V51 are virtually endless, the build quality is great and it delivers everything you could want in a mid-tower case and more.   The Thermaltake Core V51 is available from Amazon for $109.99 with Prime Shipping (stock is expected at Amazon very soon), or from Newegg for $109.99 with $10 shipping (stock today).               For more information, please go to: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2014/10/01/thermaltake_core_v51_midtower_case_review/1

We're happy to see they also loved the POSEIDON Z with Tt eSPORTS certified mechanical blue switches, pretty much as much as they loved the VENTUS~ since the POSEIDON Z also ended up with the same rating! 4.7/5 and the same three awards (Editor's Choice, Gold Award, and Value award)   Here's an excerpt from their review, talking about the value aspect & the world's first 5 year warranty on a gaming keyboard.   Play3r also compares the key spacing to some of the other choices on the market, as well as the feel of the Tt certified switches vs the Cherry MX switches they're used to; And preferred the Tt certified option.   Head on over to read the full review here: http://www.play3r.net/reviews/peripherals/tt-poseidon-z-keyboard-review/

VERTO Headset review @ NikkTech

NikkTech recently reviewed our newly released VERTO headset, and gave it their highly recommended award. The VERTO headset offers strong styling paired with comfort. The dual-headband design is auto adjusting to get the right sizing for anyone who wears it, and protein leather ear pads maintain comfort even over long hours of use. The bold geometric design is strong enough for gaming yet sophisticated enough for in-office use. The sound is amazing, but you can take the reviewer's words for that.             Here's some of the Pro's and Con's they mentioned.   Head on over to read the full review here: http://www.nikktech.com/main/articles/peripherals/headsets/4128-tt-esports-verto-gaming-headset-review

Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate 360mm Liquid CPU Cooler Review@HiTech Legion

15 September, 2014 - by George Cella   There are always constraints in product development and what is actually possible. While many times, an idea may be profound, it may not be physically possible in the real world. First and foremost, the actual materials to make the idea work need to exist. The idea of a floating transportation board that is non-powered since it is made of a gravity defying element that can bear weight and will not float away may sound great. This idea falls apart when you take into account that an element doesn’t exist. Other times, your idea may step on a patent and may not be legally viable as a result, or at least not financially viable after paying royalties to the patent holder.   Over the last year, we have seen the legalese stunting of development in the CLC market. Since one manufacturer now owns the rights to the “pump on the block†concept, and vaguely on the concept of closed loop in general, we have been watching a one-horse race. Companies marketing these CLCs have had to work within the scope of what the patent holder (and OEM) is producing. With the same basic set of parts to work with, differentiation in the marketplace is becoming more difficult, and differentiation in performance even more difficult. There is only so much difference you can make by changing one 100 cfm fan to another 100 cfm fan, and the RGB LEDs may be a nice touch, but they aren’t helping cool anything.   All in all, I am very impressed with the Water 3.0 Ultimate as a complete package, far more so than I expected to be. I appreciate Thermaltake’s approach and wish that more vendors would start using it. Balance and taking advantage of a component’s strengths are key, and Thermaltake gets that. While I still feel that an open loop solution, like the H220-X or XSPC Raystorm kit, is a much better choice at this price point for obvious reasons, when it comes to closed loop, there is no disputing that the Water 3.0 Ultimate is the current top choice. This is not only for its overall performance capabilities, but the fact that it will be a nice quiet everyday solution, as well. For this, the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate takes home a Hi Tech Legion Gold Award.     Likes Top Performing CLC We Have Tested To Date
Excellent Noise/Performance For CLC Cooler
Outstanding Noise/Performance With Fans at 1450 rpm and 40 dBA
Fans Controlled By Motherboard Header Directly
No Need For Extra Software
Push/Pull Ready With Threads Pre-Tapped In Radiator

Thermaltake Toughpower DPS G 1050W 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Review@TweakTown

September 9, 2014 - by Zac O'Vadka   I've said it before and I will say it again, digital power supplies are where the industry is headed. Those that have chosen to adopt and create the technology first are way ahead of the curve right now and in a few years, this is what others will be playing catch up on. Right now, the only two companies that have digitally controlled and monitored consumer units on the market are Corsair and Thermaltake. Both are working feverishly to stay ahead of the curve and the unit that we have today is another effort at doing just that.   The Toughpower DPS G series from Thermaltake is their second iteration of digital power supplies. The first was only available in a select few wattages, but the new series covers a much broader range of outputs, and as such, it should appeal to quite a few more who are interested in a digital unit. Thermaltake is offering the Toughpower DPS G in wattages ranging from 450W all the way up to 1050W. If that doesn't cover most of the PC market, I don't know what does.   For those wondering what the differences are over the DPS G series compared to the DPS series, it is relatively simple. Thermaltake has changed manufacturers between the two. The original units were manufactured by Sirtec and the new ones are made by CWT. In our experience, we have seen better overall quality from CWT-made units. This is apparent in many ways, ranging from components used to how well everything is soldered together. Let's start by taking a look at the specifications to see what all the 1050W DPS G has to offer.   This is the fifth or so digital unit that we have taken a look at thus far and the second unit that we've seen from Thermaltake. Being that we are still in the infancy stages of digital power supplies, I think it is safe to say that everyone wins with these units. Every digitally controlled unit that we have had thus far has performed on what was previously thought as a near flawless level of operation.   The Toughpower DPS G 1050W is no exception to this, doing what few have ever achieved and that is maintaining voltage regulation across the board within 1% of ATX specifications. Thermaltake does this while also maintaining excellent noise suppression and decent efficiency. The efficiency is also rather high on this unit as it stays solidly between the lines of 80 PLUS Gold and Platinum.   While we may not be able to say that the performance from the DPS G 1050W is unparalleled or that it is what the industry standard should be, we can say that the Thermaltake DPS G 1050W is probably the best unit on the market in terms of performance and value. The Thermaltake DPS G 1050W combines the best of both world's and this is truly what is the crème de la crème for consumers; excellent performance with exceptional value.         Read more at: http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/6657/thermaltake-toughpower-dps-g-1050w-80-plus-gold-power-supply-review/index4.html

Thermaltake Core V1 Mini-ITX SFF Chassis Review@TweakTown

September 4th, 2014- by Chad Sebring   When the Core Series is spoken of, we immediately think back to the Thermaltake Core V71, where Thermaltake offered a chassis like no other they had before. Of course, it did take some interior components that we had seen in other designs, but the versatility of the interior design, along with the slick rounded exterior, the full mesh front panel, and huge side window, all lent to its high ratings. Not only did we at TweakTown give the Core V71 an outstanding rating, but no one elsewhere could point out a failure with that design either.   Being blunt and honest has always worked for us in the past, so there is no need to change anything now. When we first looked at the Core V1 online, we thought that it looked aesthetically pleasing on the outside with the cool option to change the panels around to suit each user's specific needs. This option is cool enough for most, but without having much of a look prior to un-boxing this chassis, our hopes for the interior were not all that high. However, our tune quickly changed after about ten minutes with the Core V1.   After removing some thumbscrews, the panels started to shed off like leaves from a tree in fall, and it became clear that there would be no struggle to build inside of the Core V1. Failure to pay attention to detail is the one thing that will seriously break a good chassis and bring it to its knees in sales. However, we found the Core V1 is like a gift that keeps on giving with its drive bays and removable floor, as it hides features here and there like an Easter egg hunt.   As we said before, the toughest part of the build was after we had everything installed and then added the front I/O panel back into the chassis. There was plenty of wiring length to accommodate all of the runs to the USB 3.0 and HD Audio. Since we installed the video card prior to adding the tiny connections, we did have to fiddle around there, but that was due to the way we went at easing the build and eliminating the extra wiring. We did this until the PSU was wired to all of the components and tucked neatly away from the fans blades with the many wire tie points situated around where they pass from the bottom to the top.   We also love that the access hole for the wiring is deep enough to fully support a 120mm or 140mm AIO with a 27mm thick radiator and a 25mm thick fan. It also has just enough room left for the major wiring to pass. The Thermaltake Core V1 may not have large plastic handles on the top and bottom like the Prodigy, but if ever there was an economically friendly Prodigy killer, this Core V1 has to be it.   Keeping with notion that honestly is best policy, we do feel the MSRP for this chassis is set a bit high. By that we mean that the intended cost is nowhere near as awesome as some of the current pricing we have seen around the internet. This is still a pretty cool chassis at nearly $90, but if you shop smart, this chassis can be delivered to your door for less than $50. This takes this from an average bang-for-your-buck design into the realm of excellence, and it is hard to deny such a sleek and roomy design in such tight confines at this price.   Just as the Prodigy did years ago, I can see the Core V1 becoming the basis for many mods to come. It is also one of those cases that will make you ponder buying all the rest of the Mini-ITX gear just so you can complete a build in, and have one of these Core V1 Mini-ITX cases gracing your desk. That alone says volumes about a design. Thermaltake has won us over once again by showing they can offer unique, and stunning designs, even when it comes to a Small Form Factor chassis.     PRICING: You can find the Thermaltake Core V1 for sale below. The prices listed are valid at the time of writing, but can change at any time. Click the link to see the very latest pricing for the best deal.   United States: The Thermaltake Core V1 retails for $40.99 at Amazon.   Canada: The Thermaltake Core V1 retails for CDN$60.18 at Amazon Canada.         Read more at: http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/6635/thermaltake-core-v1-mini-itx-sff-chassis-review/index.html

Thermaltake Frio 14 Silent CPU Cooler Review@KITGURU

August 31st, 2014 - by Matthew Wilson   While all in one liquid cooling units continue to dominate the high end CPU cooling space, there is still plenty of room left in the market for a good old fashioned air cooler. Today we will be taking a look at the Frio 14 from Thermaltake. This CPU cooler promises minimal noise output at an affordable price but, does it deliver? Let’s find out…   Overall, we are very impressed with the Thermaltake Frio14 silent CPU cooler. It was clearly designed from the ground up to deliver excellent cooling proficiency at very low noise levels. Temperatures were kept lower than 50 degrees at all times, even on the power hungry FX-8350 chip. Noise levels were even better, coming in at just 35dBA thanks to the high quality 140mm fan. I would like to point out that our results are taken with the fan spinning at 100%, most real world scenarios such as gaming, didn’t require the fan to spin this fast and as a result, you’ll achieve even lower noise levels. If you are interested in overclocking then there is plenty of thermal headroom to play around with. However, for better results, you may want to look in to the Frio Extreme, the dual tower variant of this cooler. We have been informed by Thermaltake that the Frio14 will release in the UK for about £30, a fantastic price given that it can trade blows with much more expensive coolers. However, store availability has yet to be announced. Discuss on our Facebook page, over HERE.   Pros: Extremely quiet.
Strong cooling performance.
Slim profile.
Easy mounting procedure.
Cons: None.
KitGuru Says: If you’re in the market for an extremely quiet, yet affordable CPU cooler and don’t mind the bare aluminium look, then the Thermaltake Frio14 is the first cooler you should be looking at.   For more information: http://www.kitguru.net/components/cooling/matthew-wilson/thermaltake-frio14-silent-cpu-cooler-review/

Thermaltake Frio Silent 14 Air Cooler Review@HARTWARE

August 26, 2014 - by Jan Ramon Fischer   Thermaltake new Frio Silent Series - Frio Silent 14, another CPU cooler with non-interference cooling design for the use of high performance RAM and motherboards, 140mm fan silently enhance air flow to aid in performance. Fully compatible with RAM of all kinds, ideally for power users to fill their RAM slots with high-end overclocked RAM.   We got a very positive review from Hartware. The cooler scores above average compared to ~30 regular CPU coolers, especially under load. Compared to other silent coolers, it scores 2nd out of ~30 coolers under load (only beaten by the Alpenföhn Himalaya 2). The only point for critique is that you can not turn the cooler by 90° to avoid overlapping with overclocked and oversized RAM bars on AMD systems.   “All in all, the Thermaltake Frio Silent convinces through its low sound level and good to very good cooling performance as well as the easy installation. We can especially recommend this cooler for silence freaks, the price of roughly 40 EUR is appropriate for a silent cooler of this caliber.†      Pros - extremely silent, even at 12V - good to very good cooling performance - good build quality - easy installation   Cons - can not be turned by 90° on AMD systems, which might cause problems with high RAM heatspreaders   For more information: http://www.hartware.de/review_1764_1.html
