OC3D Review: Tagan 2-Force II TG700-U33 700w PSU

"Today we'll be taking a look at one of the latest 700w PSU's to roll out of the factory doors at Tagan. The TG700-U33 boasts quad rails, silent operation and a good price point, but will it deliver the goods during our tests."

Good review, a nice read.

The PSU looks pretty nice and performs well, But as said in the view wasn't able to keep up with others when it came to efficiency.

Yeah ideally I would have liked to give it an 8.5 for "Performance" but our graph doesn't allow that . 80% efficiency is by no means poor, but there's others out there that will hit 84%.

I need a new psu as my hiper is blue and I'm not going with a blue theme in my rig refresh...

I think £100 is my price point. Corsair 640w is a big contender, this could be too.

I know you don't need a mahoosive psu but i want to be able to power the upcoming 9800gtx or ati equiv. I want a psu that I can keep for a long time...

Nice review, a few extra touches, the good, the bad and the ugly influence made me laugh

looks like a good psu

no unique quality's, and just the same old over again, thats the only problem with tagan i think

they all look the same, or similar, and its just a bit repetative, if each psu had a unique feature it would add to the ....interest of it

Great review as normal my rating for the review 10/10

With such attention to detail it really helps when choosing, this would be a unit I would not use as I feel the Corsair HX620 is better in this class, super quiet and much more efficient.
