You probably won't need that much power anytime soon. Even if you did, there're a few better options. Can we get full system specs?

Oh and, 120/240v doesn't matter with modern units anymore. They all have Active PFC, which powers up the unit accordingly. It was in past (or with cheap PSU's) we had 120 or 240v specific units with no PFC.

You will be fine, I've used a US desktop in dubai with only the little 3-prong adapter thing. They accept 90-264V ~ 15A 50/60Hz according to the website.

700-750W for one, 1000W for 590 Quad-SLi is all that's at most needed.

http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...l-release.html

Regarding the AX, is has too big of a single rail (doesn't matter much but is still bit of a danger).

"[H] recently tested the single rail Corsair AX1200, but they had an accidental short circuit, and since the PSU's OCP is set for over 100A, the short overloaded and destroyed most of their testing equipment. So there is a danger with single rail units over 1000W.

So multi-rail is mildly better, especially with high wattage units, but it won't have any impact on your performance or overclockability."

Like I said, there're better options to be found (if you'd like me to find as well).

Last PSU he'll "ever" need, yet it only comes with 6 PCI-E connectors? That according to you, he needs an adapter to use with? lol. The AX comes with all 8-pin. Six 8-pin connectors, but with Corsair's QC (I've been hearing some fail), lack of OCP and overkill factors taken, it really isn't the best choice out there. That is what it is.
