I've got a TR2 RX 750W bronze and the power button on the back literally just popped off of it. There I was, just sitting down watching some YouTube videos and the button just popped off spontaneously along with a copper piece. The plastic on the inside of the button is cracked a bit. Can i fix it with some epoxy or am I going to have to buy a new PSU?

I bought a TR2 430W PSU to replace a failed PSU in a desktop.  Upon opening the box, I discovered that there is no 4-pin 12v connector for the motherboard connection that is usually near the CPU socket.  There are 2 each 6-PIN PCI-E breakouts.  Apparently, when I bought it, I did not notice that the model description on the back of the box states W0070RUC: TR2 430W W/O PFC.

 

I am considering taking the 4-pin 12v connector from the failed PSU and using that but I would like to know where to connect the yellow wires on the circuit board.

Hello, 

Can you check out the link below? Is it the PSU you bought?

I suppose it should have a 4+4Pin connector for CPU.

I have a TR-600 that is less than 2 years old (5 year warranty). It all of a sudden shut my computer off. I didn't think anything of it at first but there wasn't a power surge of any sort. All my other computers were still on. I opened it up, cleaned up a little bit and tried again. I has a split second where I see the lights on my fans come on and then off. I removed my cables and placed them back on. It will not come on. Any help?

I have used at least 50 TR2 power supplies in the last 5 five years, on my work rigs, on rigs that I have done for me then sold for no reason at all, and also builds for clients …

TR2 is the bang for the budget…! pretty solid PSU's … excellent lifespam, cannot complain about them, also I'm currently using a 700W one…!

take into the list for TR2 80+Gold a 600/700W will fit my needs!!! for sure!

One question-

I own an old TR2 470W  which has 1 pci-e connector. I tried to put it in a build with a 7870, using a mole-to-pcie adaptor for the second vga input.

Using various psu calculators, the necessary power was somewhere between 380 to 400W, so I thought I was covered.  

It didnt work. Took the vga in another built with a Smart 730SE (which has 2 regular pcie connectors) and all is fine.

The TR2 now is powering up a apu pc with no problem whatsoever. 

So both parts are working. The only thing I can imagine creating a problem is the 2nd PCIe connector that was "fake".

Does anyone know the difference between the 12V of the pcie connector and the 12V of the molex connector in this (or other) model(s)?

And if theres a difference why are there molex-to-pci adaptors?

I have a TR2 TRX-650 I bought about 5 years ago (just out of warranty LOL), my computer has started randomly shutting off without any warning. I have opened and cleaned all fans, the CPU, graphics cards, and the power supply fans, yet is continues to happen. I have noticed that it seems to happen more often when myself or my children are gaming. I was wondering if it was the power supply starting to fail? Which is what I leaning towards, and if so what power supply would be recommended for my setup, because I know the 650w was probably a bit much for what I am running.

 

PC Setup:

AMD FX-6100 Zambezi

Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3

G Skill Ripjaws X series 16gb

EVGA GeForce GTX 650 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0

and of course the TRX-650 PSU

 

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply.

I think a 650W Bronze PSU should be able to work with your PC,

and perhaps you can have a look at Thermaltake’s SMART Series SP-650PCBUS 650W power supply.

Hope it helps.

Thank you.

I bought the following tower, can a recommendation be made for the size of the powersupply to purchase.

 

Thermaltake CORE X71 Black ATX Full Tower Water Cooling Gaming Computer Case

 

Could you please provide the spec information?

The recommendation for the power supply should be based on what is the spec of your system.

I have same problem. Is there any way to purchase this button? I will change it.

Now power is connected straight, without any button.
