Features and Specifications

The features of the Thermaltake ToughpowerXT 1275W are as follows:

High current massive +12V rails
Powerful dual +12V rails to provide the best compatibility for your PC.

Full Bridge & LLC resonance and Interleaved PFC circuit Design
Toughpower XT Platinum adopt full bridge & LLC resonance circuit for extremely stable performance & reliability. Besides, built in the interleaved PFC circuit, Toughpower XT Platinum also provides extremely high PF value and high PSU efficiency.

S.P.T. Indicator
When you open the side panel of your chassis or look through the side window, you can see the PSU status quickly and easily. S.P.T indicator with 3-mode LED (standby / power good signal / temperature) for real-time monitoring over the power supply.
It helps the user to know the PSU working status, detect abnormal situations and protect your system.

High Quality Japanese Made Electrolytic & Solid Capacitors
Toughpower XT PLATINUM features 105°C / 221°F Japanese made electrolytic capacitors & solid State capacitors with low ESR, which greatly improves the durability and offers the highest stability and reliability.
