Thermaltake recently launched the Toughpower Grand Platinum 700W and 600W power supplies. These PSUs are 80 PLUS Platinum certified, which means they are up to 94% efficiency. When it comes to features, they have a massive single +12V rail, modular cable design, and a patented 14cm flower-shape fan with FanDelayCool Technology.

Yuck, white and red. Definitely not the 2 colours you want to mix
Firstly most AMD systems come in red and black. So a HEC Cougar has a nice colour scheme, orange and black for AMD
Intel systems are mostly very blue so red wouldn't go down and you won't see a red motherboard with white accents because it's just outward terrible
My head screamed "AWFUL!" when i saw the white and red scheme, jeez why can't they keep it black all the way or at least white?
I know that from the pure black motherboards Gigabyte has been making recently as well as ASRock and Biostar for that matter for the FM2 platform
One of the worser colour pairings on PSUs i've seen for years but it might match the Level 10 GT Snow Edition case though (Well, it's a TT too isn't it?)
