    TTGI SuperFlower Plug-N Power 550W

    Bottom Line: This power supply exhibited a lot of the same issues as the Mad Dog. With added features like the 5-minute ramain running, the quieter 140MM fan that kept things VERY cool and the lower price scores this PSU higher than the Mad Dog.

    Inside The PSU

    Inside, the two look VERY similar.  Note the same transformers, heatsinks, etc.  The fan controller on the TTGI (the small red board) is a bit different.

    This extra circuit board is installed on the input side of the TTGI/Superflower. It looked a lot like Active PFC, but my model didn't have PFC and the .70 PF rating proves it.

    The cables are similar to that of the A.C. Ryan and are just like the Mad Dog's.  The connectors snap into the power supply so they shouldn't come out and there's even a dedicated SATA power connector that provides 3.3V for future SATA drives (currently, SATA drives only use 5V and 12V, but 3.3V is in the specification.)  They're not as pretty as the Ultra's or even the OCZ's, but they're acceptable.
