Yeah they won't be as uber mega overkill awesomesauce duuuuudezorz as the NEX1500, but they're still high-end PSUs, especially for the price.

You know what is inside for cooling??? Sanyo Denki 9G1212P4G03 AXIAL FAN, 120MM, 12VDC, 900mA; External; 12VDC, 900mA; External Height:120mm; External Depth:25mm; Current Type:DC; Supply Voltage:12VDC; Current Rating:900mA

Bust choice for cooling PSU. You now where is AX1200 weeker than AX650-Fan. YateLoon 140mm vs San Ace.
In AX1200i is again same YateLoon 140 mm. About fans in CM SilentPro Gold(same like in ordinary SilentPro)and some Enermax is stupid talking, in many exspensive models crap is inside.
With Enermax Platinum you got one fan more but you don't know for what, for case like gift or like reserve when fan inside PSU die.
This is very good choice for PSU with long warranty, I can say best PSU cooling options.
Very smart move because they decide to stay on 120mm because best world fans is 120mm and that is more than enough to cool all PSU, 140mm is not necessery at all for this.

Because AX1200i, Seasnoic X/ Platinum, and all kind of mod cables or buying finished CORSAIR cables you will pay more than NEX1500 an stay on 300+W less.
This is best looking software, far best looking PSU, far best single sleeve cables, finished without chance to always fix some wire, and wonderfull PSU unit.
150$ more than similiar. But what you do with similar 1200W PSU. This is for real enthusiast. They hate Seasonic and Enermax cables.
What they do. They pay 100$+ for MDPC-X, most of them 150$ more for someone hand to make everything to look good and you pay 500 or 600 and still on 1200W or 1000 or sometimes 1500 without software, multirail and 1650 in OC Mode. This for people who want to avoid yelloow wires on 300$ units and pay for than 100-200$ or any cost. Or who want to avoid NZXT extenmsions only for 85$ what CORSAIR call sleeve cables. They are good , that is inovation too, good thinking of CORSAIR but not like this, not even close.
You are aware that what makes a PSU worth the money is the ripple, voltage regulation, startup transients, etc... NOT total output or the cables, right? The cabling comes down to personal preference, and I personally prefer Corsair's cabling to that. Not the sleeving, specifically, but the cabling in general. On that note the sleeving on those eVGA cables looks fairly stiff, though probably not as stiff as what NZXT uses. Frankly the pricing on this unit, if what you're saying is true, worries me. We'll see once the die-hard testers get their hands on it, so don't try calling it until you've seen it then.

Yeah, it's a San Ace, so what? They're excellent fans, but implying that the ball-bearing Yates Corsair puts to use in some of their units can't do the job as well is downright foolish.

Yes but you know better than me about complains in YT140 and why is that choice in first AX1200Gold.
In AX1200i same, you know complains about fans in little AX brothers are less.
Do job. Yes for 350$ do job + cables 50$ less than NEX1500W. I think for enthusist who wants something better inside comp and who want to investment everything to look good. About ripple efficiency and other thing it's early to talk about. This is not ASUS PowerSupply or CM GX750.
Difference between these monsters with 3way and 4 way SLI and Tri Fire is not so big like you think.
And I give 1-2% efficiency immediately from my Seasonic for some cables like this and more 2% for fan controlling and software monitoring.

You talk about this cables
http://i.imgur.com/66PYQ.png

Same like Bitfenix extension, I think Bitfenix extension looks better. But it's normal to someone to choose to change fabric cables on this.
That is normal if cables persists, Seasonic owners can't change, they must buy and pay close to 100$ for sleeve and destroy warranty to make this, and how many people do this for 150$ + sleeve cables + shipping for more than 100W units. Count price of that.
About efficiency later, not now. And everything over 280$ OR 280e it's so little power difference and much more is about details, warranty, manufacturer glory, fan inside, looking...

You underestimate how important those "not so big" differences are in decision making with power supplies; buy what's best in what you can't change, not in what you can.

Software monitoring and fan control are gimmicks on a power supply. I thought enthusiasts had had enough of PSU gimmicks, this isn't 2005 FHS.

You're wrong on one count there; sleeving cables on a fully modular PSU will NOT void the warranty. Not Seasonic, not Corsair, not anyone. Even if it did, who cares? This is OCN, if you aren't voiding your warranty, you're either not doing enough or you aren't doing it right. wink.gif Either way, pulling the legwork on a unit like that to make the cabling how you want is our prerogative; again, buy what's best in what you can't change, not in what you can.

Seasonic service tell me I will destroy warranty if start to sleeve cables.
Maybe they lie to me or didn't know. I lknow for CORSAIR is OK to sleeve because of that I talk for Seasonic.
I don't know what is for Enermax. That's not look me like ready to support that. I thought CORSAIR separates from others with that.

People money is yours. You have AX1200, Enermax, Seasonix, EVGA, CM, Silverstone.
Buy what you want that is your PC, I know what is important for me and for people who pay 250e ove PSU price only for sleeve together with hands who know to make right cables.
Tell them it's not important you are good with fabric sleeve cables. Not to me. I know my priority.
Gold is enough, enough for me. Little number difference between that mean nothing for me. But fan control software, custom rails, fabric sleeve and 5 years more than X-750 and 3 years more than Platinum means much and fight with cables, remove pin from cables, I have everything next to me I 6 months can't start to do that.
Black MDPC-X 30m and MDPC-X tool is next to me. I know what Seasonic tell to me about cables.

You have always to pay 280$ for Seasonic Platinum and look this
http://i.imgur.com/qJ6Ki.jpg

7 year and I can beg if PC is your hobby after you see 10 other rigs with good cables you will wish to change something.
Than you have little options. All of them cost only little less than NEX1500 and some more than that.
But you have 4-5% difference efficiency, if you need 500W. No software, no "gimmicks", no custom rails, ...
You have always to make Platinum 1000 for 400e to look good without "unnecessary" things, if you know and have patient to sleeve.

Pretty much this. Your paying $150 more on the NEX for features that are pretty much gimmicks. The only thing holding me off from buying it. I already have a power meter so the software doesn't do much for me. I also never cared for how fast my fan spins on my PSU. Whatever is designed to keep it cool is fine, no need to "control" it.

I think this is targeted towards the individuals that run things well above stock clocks with cooling well below room temperature.

$150 more than what? The 1200i? There's a capacity difference that you're not factoring in. If you're comparing the NEX1500 to other 1500W PSUs (i.e. Enermax MaxRevo 1500), there's only a $100 price vista. However, Enermax only gives you a 3 year warranty on that unit. Whereas with EVGA's you get a 10 year.

There's still a lot of unknowns about the NEX1500 (like the most important part - how does it really perform) - but I'd say the price is not that far out of line compared to the marketplace.

Speaking more of the Lepa G1600. It's highly rated, good power delivery and darn efficient. You can get it for $280. Oklahoma Wolf really liked this PSU in his review. So, actually the NEX is more than $150 from its nearest competitor IMO (Although I do think the NEX is better looking and has nice sleeved cables):
