"A high-end CPU and motherboard along with a potentially large number of disk drives demands a heavy-duty power supply. Thermaltake came to the rescue here providing us with their Toughpower Grand (TPG) 750W power supply. This unit outputs almost twice the power you would expect to get from a typical off-the-shelf unit. The TPG power supply uses the modular connector approach to give you added flexibility when it comes to providing power to just about anything you would need to drive. An ample supply of cables with multiple connectors comes with every TPG unit and more than met our needs (see Figure 5). Another nice touch with this unit is the mounting pads meant to help isolate the power supply from the case. This helps cut down on any extra vibration the power supply might introduce due to its fan."
