Introduction & Packaging
The term “digital power supply” is rarely used in the power supply market at the moment; we have seen digital power supplies before (the Corsair AXi series springs to mind) but they still remain uncommon and unpopular due to their high price. Thermaltake are the latest power supply brand to venture into the digital power supply arena with their Toughpower DPS series units, of which we have their DPS 750W model in for testing today.
On paper the DPS 750W is a direct rival to Corsair’s AX760i offering similarly strong efficiency, the same 7 year warranty, a fully modular design, quiet operation and digitally controlled voltage regulation. Thermaltake’s DPS 750W does benefit from a fairly unique piece of software that is bundled with the power supply but Corsair’s AX760i also has something similar in the form of Corsair Link. Thermaltake’s software allows you to monitor efficiency, voltages, watts, energy costs, the power supply temperature and control the fan speed.

The packaging showcases the digital nature of the power supply as well support for the DPS app. The 7 year warranty is also a flagship feature, only EVGA go one better by offering a 10 year warranty with their high end power supplies.
Accessories include documentation, case screws, a power chord, cable ties, a USB cable for controlling the PSU with the provided app and two anti-vibration pads if your case doesn’t include such a feature.
