    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.

    Labels and Cables


    The only thing similar about these two labels is the 3.3V, the 12V and the UL listing number.

    Reading the labels and counting the cables.....

    So what does the TTGI label look like?

    TTGI Plug-N Power 550W +3.3V +5V +12V -12V -5V +5VSB
    Max Output Current 35A 50A 30A 1A 1A 3A
    Max Combined Peak Wattage 275W 360W 12W 5W 15W
    518W 32W

     

    Let's take a look at what connectors we get with this power supply.  Keep in mind this unit is modular, so these numbers can change by simply swapping out a cable.


    Once again, the SATA connector allows for the 3.3V lead.  Other modular power supplies, and the use of adapters, negates this voltage.

    TTGI Plug-N Power 550W QUANTITY OF CONNECTORS
    ATX connector 24-pin
    2 x 2 12V connectors 1
    2 x 3 PCIe 0
    6-pin Xeon/AUX connector 0
    5.25" Drive connectors 7*
    3.5" Drive connectors 2
    SATA Drive power connectors 2
    Fan only connectors (thermostatically controlled 12V only) 0

    * One of the 5.25" drive connectors has additional EMI filtering for use exclusively with a hard drive or video card.

    Note the lack of a PCI Express cable.  Also there are no fan only connectors and no AUX connector.  There are plenty of 5.25" Molexes, but only one with the EMI filter, similar to those found on the Raidmax power supply, on it (not to say that the filter on the end of the cable actually makes much difference.)  In a PCI Express system, I would use this connector with an adapter for my video card.
