The Thortech Thunderbolt Plus 1200W may have a cheesy name, but we have no concerns with the appearance of the unit itself. It is finished in a slightly off black/dark grey paint which doesn’t attract fingerprints and can withstand rough handling without leaving an array of scratches.
The large fan is hidden behind a black honeycomb grill, with the company logo in the center position. We will look at the fan in more detail when we open the supply up shortly.
One side of the power supply is honeycomb vented to help with airflow. At the side is a power button and connector.
The other side of the Thortech Thunderbolt Plus 1200W PSU has eight modular headers which are colour coded. Four are coloured yellow, and the rest are black. These are constructed to high standards.
As I mentioned earlier in the review, a reduction in the amount of hard wired cables would have been beneficial. There is plenty of space here for another 4 to 8 cable connectors.
Above, a hefty +12V output of 100A. This actually matches the total output of the Thortech Thunderbolt Plus 1200W. The +3.3V and +5V rails can deliver a total of 150W, which is very high and outside the parameters for even a very high demand enthusiast system.
