We couldn't let this power supply get through our review without opening it up and having a poke around inside. Many power supplies have potentiometers inside which allow you to fine-tune the output voltages. This can be very handy if a PSU's load voltage dips below what its supposed to be.
Unfortunatly in this case i was unable to find any potentiometers to have a play with. This isn't neccesarily a bad thing, as the power supply was most likely configured in the factory to provide good load voltages. We'll find out for sure on the next few pages.
Its fairly common knowledge that PSU manufacturers oursource the internal components of their power supplies to other companies. We can see above that Thermaltake have chosen a company called Sirtec
. A quick search of the web shows that Sirtec have been in business since 1968, and have been producing power supplies for around 10 years. Reviews of Sirtec products on other websites seem positive on the whole, so hopefully this is a good sign.
