Seasonic was on my mind late last night when I was finishing my brothers modest build with installing a new S12 series 620 watt Seasonic PSU. biggrin.gif

Thanks for the build with the S12!!!

Are we going to see a PSU with 2000w continuous rating anytime soon? Or there's no market for it?

Sorry for the back to back responses (not multi-quoting) as I didn't realize your post till it was too late.

Nice post. I and several people I know were burned by coolermaster and rosewill psu's. I have heard that rosewill is offering some nice units lately. In the past 18 months I've seen 4 cm GX750's drop like flies. Not to mention 2 extreme power 500's. Coolermaster's silent pro series is good, but has some equally priced alternatives.

I've owned: thermaltake- died after 3 years
coolermaster extreme 500- struggled to power a 7800gtx
corsair HX620- works (sold pc)
antec TPN 750- great (sold pc)
corsair HX750- used in last 2 builds
antec HCG 620- used as a place holder but a great unit

My brother uses an OCZ ZT750 which I think is a great unit as well. A friend of mine, after a solid year of psu/gpu headaches, just purchased a seasonic X750 so we'll see how that goes. I understand this post and all, but I will likely always (don't like saying always, but..) buy a corsair/antec/seasonic unit. They offer some of the best units at a few ranges, excellent customer service and good warranty coverage too. I wanna thank Phaedrus2129 for all the PSU guides and such. Also. thanks to Sea Sonic Rep for all the helpful tidbits of info. I wish thermaltake/coolermaster reps came down to help us weed out their proper units from their junk. Guess that's what we have Phaedrus for eh?

Sorry, no plans for a 2kW unit.
post #148 of 320
Thread Starter 
I think Thermaltake had a stunt with a "2kW" PSU but I think it was an industrial unit with a Thermaltake logo on it. I think there's a market for 2kW ATX PSUs but it's probably very small. If someone makes one it will probably be based on a Channel Well PUC platform, since that's one of the most easily scalable high-wattage units.

sure...other companies might have decent power supplys, but no bugger is going to know a bout it if the company doesnt advertise it in a big way.

Its not seasonics or corsairs fault they lead the market due to brand recognition. If other companies want a bite on the apple, they gotta do something about it.

This is the power supply I use. I like it, it's quiet, and it works.

However, I would suggest looking into other brands (like this thread states). I was able to get mine for a little less than $110 after rebates, which is one reason why I got it.

Phaedrus's PSU calculator has recommendations based on wattage. I would suggest putting in the hardware that you want to put in your computer, then using that value. That calculator also gives some wiggle room, so you don't have to be exact.
