Thermaltake not only makes many different levels and ratings of power supplies to suit all different kinds of needs, they also attempt to educate their customers by giving them tools such as their power supply calculator to help size a unit appropriate to the system. From their high end Toughpower and Purepower power supplies to their server lineup and mainstream TR2 and new Litepower series, they offer a high quality power supply to fit every need. It's one of their Litepower units I'll be taking a look at today, the 450W version, Thermaltake part number W0293RU.
The Litepower 450W arrived in a relatively plain white box printed to appear similar to a power supply itself, with an image of a fan grill on the top and the appearance of a bundle of wires coming out the side. Of course Thermaltake's brand name is printed on there as well and the obligatory specifications are found on the bottom.
Join me as I take a closer look at the Thermaltake Litepower 450W.
