It's not the same model. The one that you suggested has ShenZhen UTPower Technology as the OEM whose PSUs have never been reviewed.
Thermaltake TR2 S 600w are manufactured by FSP as its OEM. FSP has good name in making PSU's.

Friends, Thermaltake TR2 S Series is a new PSU and there is no details about who made it. It has white and black color box and label on PSU case, unlike fully back color sticker on old TR2 which is reviewed by Hardware Secret on 20110. Also TR2 has 80+ bronze certification whereas TR2 S has 80+ white. All other spec are different.

Anyway, my present Gigabyte PSU is made by FSP and I'm not keen on that company.

Thermaltake Smart Series sold in USA is same as Thermaltake TR2 S available here and I don't see any major complaints on Amazon.com and Newegg reviews.

Good news. I have discussed this issue with my brother and he says go for good quality PSU rather those that we are not sure about quality. He is ready to help me get Seasonic M12II-620 from his CC and I have pay him next month. Seasonic has good resale value and incase it fails to work with my UPS then I can easily sell it through online forums (i.e here or erodov). Thermaltake PSU is hard to sell because of bad reputation.

As I have checked Seasonic M12II-620 already, it has mixed reviews regarding its UPS compatibility. It works for most having APC UPS but not for some. Now I need a strong hopes from you guys. :)

Good to know you are going for a Seasonic one.
Get this one. It's better than M12II EVO 620.

Could be. I just saw the spec and design, both looks same.

Seasonic SSR-550RT S12G Series 550W Power Supply with 80+ Gold Certificatio

Not the EVO. I looking at M12II-620 and I need 600w min for future proof. Here is the link. I would be getting from ebay because I have discount coupon.

BTW; While I was reading reviews about it, I found that it comes with type F power cable and it is 15a. All my type D power cables are 6amps. Is it ok to use?

M12II 620w means Evo with full modular PSU.

It's EVO edition. SKU: SS-620GM2
Seasonic M12II-620 EV

Ultimately its upto you to decide what to buy. Cables are good. 550W is pretty future proof unless you are planning SLI or Crossfire or buying the R9 295X2. You current system can run on a 400W PSU easily.

Oops, you guys are right. I didn't go through SKU and overclockerszone didn't mentioned evo on title on ebay listing. It is written in description though.

No idea about now but I may go for crossfire if I get a good deal on similar GPU that I have now (AMD 6850). Also my CPU and Motherboard are nearly old so I may go for upgrade in near future.

M12II-620 EVO is pretty much good and I hope it will serve for many of years. :)


Wow what a find! Thank you. Its good that I didn't go for it.

Users of Smart and TR2 series have given positive feedbacks because it is made by CWT/HEC. But the one sold here as TR2 S is made by ShenZhen UTPower Technology!

Finally placed order for Seasonic M12II-620 EVO on ebay India which is sold by overclockerszone. Got it for 6.5k :D

Hello,

My heartiest thanks to bssunilreddy, chimera201 and my brother for helping me solve the PSU problem.

I got the Seasonic today (Actually I bought it myself from courier office as I couldn't wait) and it was nicely packed by seller. Date of import is November 2015 (Almost a year old) but its fresh and plastic wrap sealed. Everything was placed nicely inside the box, especially the cables were packed in a separate bag. Built quality of the PSU is excellent and I'm happy to own a modular PSU. Another good thing is, I got the invoice from Tirupati Enterprises so the warranty claiming should go easy.

Anyway, removed the old PSU and quicky connected the new one. PC started to work perfectly. Tried to turn OFF and ON mains several times but no signs of hang or reboots. Even connected APC UPS to home inventor which is a pure sine wave and everything is working fine. Thank god, problem is finally vanished!

Here power fluctuation usually happens in the evening but I don't think there will be any problems now on. Actual culprit was Gigabyte PSU and I got relief from it. :)

Thanks again...
Best Regards
