Was there ever any follow-up from TT regarding these two units failing so monumentally?

Yes, there was. The power supply works fine at 25 C, they said. But since we tested them between 45-50 C...

Cheers,
Gabriel.

This model doesn't appear at Thermaltake's global site. Perhaps because of your findings...

But it does appear at the US site. There the second feature bullet reads:
Guarantee to deliver 750W of continuous power output at 40℃
Bullet #3 reads:
Robust and dedicated single +12V output provides superior performance under all types of system loading.

Both of these seems very wrong...

Cheers
Olle

OK, that's something you should think about mentioning in future reviews.

My 700W modular HEC-700TE-2WX with orange casing has mostly Nippon Chemicon in it, normal HECs should have Teapo.

So maybe that's the reason this unit failed?

Maybe you'd ask at the cebit for a testsample of a 700W Cougar in Hall 17, Stand D50...

Usually when a product is only targeted to a specific region it isn't listed on one or more websites from the company, this happens all the time.

Negative. The brand of capacitor has abolutely nothing to do with the capacity of a given unit to deliver its labeled power.

We are not going to Cebit and we actually don't need to go to tradeshows to ask for samples, as we are in touch with most manufacturers.

Cheers,
Gabriel.

Guys, I just won this PSU in an internet contest. I'm just wondering if I should use this on my rig or the OCZ ModXStream-Pro 500W that I currently have?

Thanks for any advice!
