Thermaltake uses a large 140mm ARGB fan for cooling. It has no less than 4 cables going to it.

Incoming AC power is heavily filtered as it comes into the unit.

Main filter caps are Japanese Nichicon 105C rated caps that should provide a long and stable life.

The entire DC output side runs with heavy bus bars rather than wires like lesser units. A couple of 8-pin locations are not populated on the 750W model.

Even the casing has the same missing plug spots but is covered with a sticker from the outside.

The solder job looks great on the bottom of the PCB and, rather amusingly, uses a green solder mask since it can’t be seen while the top side and all daughter boards are black.
