The Thermaltake Toughpower PF3 750W is a Platinum certified power supply, featuring ATX v3.0 and PCIe 5.0 compatibility. As the other PF3 models, this is one is also way more expensive than the similar capacity Toughpower GF A3 750W which is made by the same OEM, HKC, but does it worth the extra money? You know the drill, read the full review to find out!
The Thermaltake Toughpower PF3 750W is included in my best ATX v3.0 & PCIe 5.0 PSU picks article.
I have already evaluated two members of the Toughpower PF3 family:
- Thermaltake Toughpower PF3 1200W PSU Review
- Thermaltake Toughpower PF3 1050W PSU Review
- Thermaltake Toughpower PF3 850W PSU Review
Thermaltake assigned the manufacturing of the PF3 units to two OEMs, HKC and CE Link. The latter has a manufacturing line in Vietnam, so its products won’t have as high US importation tariffs as the ones made in China. Still, the PF3 750 has a way higher price tag than the GF A3 with similar capacity. I will try to determine if the high price is justified by performance and build quality or if you will be better with the more affordable unit, which is covered by the same ten-year warranty.
The PF3 750 is Platinum certified by Cybenetics, and it has a Cybenetics Α- (25-30 dB[A]) noise rating, meaning that its fan noise is kept relatively low. Regarding the cooling fan, TT speaks of a fluid dynamic bearing, which might be true, but the fan is not from a known OEM, which doesn’t align with the PSU’s stiff price. I expected to find at least a Hong Hua fan in this price range.
