That's not how PSUs work in terms of efficiency. It only draws from the PSU what it needs, so if you throw a 850w PSU on a 350w total draw system, it will only draw 350w (or the wattage it need sto deliver 350w), not 850w always. A 80+ Gold rated unit like this will be a bit more efficient than say a cheap 500 watt 80+ (no bronze/gold/silver/platinum rating) unit. It also will probably last a lot longer. PSU is usually something I would never cheap out on. Plus this is fully modular which is one of the cheaper fully modular PSUs out there with all the extra features like 80+ Gold rated, zero RPM fan mode and RGB lighting. Not to mention this has a 10 year warranty, it's a nice long term investment PSU that should see multiple systems easily.

Once you reach about 150 watt draw, this PSU has 90%+ efficiency which is great:

Compare that to a cheap 80+ 450 watt unit like this one:
https://www.tomshardware.com/revi...076-2.html

At 150 watt to about 300 watt it gets at best 85% efficient. Once you throw 400 watts at this 450w unit it's only 82% efficient. So say oyu have a system with a 350 watt power draw, on the Thermaltake 80+ unit it will be 92% efficient so it will draw about 380 watts to hit that load where the 450 watt unit is only 83% efficenct and will be drawing almost 422 watts to hit the same load. So between the 2 units, you waste about 42 more watts under load at 350 watts with the "cheaper" unit. 42 watts certainly isn't insignificant. This is basically like having a 40 watt light bulb turned on for however long you have your computer under load there.

The fan also only spins at about 575rpm fan wise under typical load (150w-450w) and is silent in my experience.

That's exactly what I have mine on, yeah you could go a bit cheap for maybe 650 watt bronze for 20-30 less than this, but this is still a really good deal for a 850 watt gold fully modular

I've never used a mail-in-rebate for a discount before. How much of a hassle is it?

Seems to me like it may kill the deal for some.

I've NEVER had one single failed mail in rebate in the 20+yrs of doing it .....that's if I remember to submit it. Read the fine prints

Rebates are a hit or miss. I've had some come through and some not. In the end, I stopped doing it period. it feels like a scam most times.

You only need a 500 watt psu for that, maybe even 400. So yes its overkill but as always is up to you. Keep in mind that it's best for efficiency to try to stay closer to the wattage you actually need but if rgb is important this would be a good deal.

Rebates are not hard not are they really much of a hassle. I think some people just forget to mail them or maybe even they've forgot how to mail letters in general. I think I've had a single rebate not come back but it was for like... $2.50 so really no big deal. I've gotten every rebate I've sent out. I forget about them most of the time so when the check comes back I'm pleasantly surprised. It's like finding money in a pocket

Never done one through Thermaltake but I've never received my rebate. Always followed the instructions very carefully, they are specific. Since then I never buy anything that's on sale via a "mail-in-rebate"

Most can be submitted online. Mailing a letter is often unnecessary.

We are SD'ers. We want every penny from the deal. Not getting $2.50 takes away some or all of the slickness.
