I have to say there are probably better choices.

The Galaxy 1000W delivers 75W divided along 5 12V rails. These 12V rails are divided into two groups. 12V1 and 12V2 are for CPU1 and CPU2, with a total max load of 34A. 12V3, 12V4, and 12V5 are for the video cards and everything else, including your hard drives and a total max load of 41A. I think 41A is not that much for all of that, esp. if you go SLI. If you don't use two CPUs, you basically have an unused rail (12V2).

In my opinion, if you run a single CPU rig, something like a PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750W with 60A on a single 12V rail should be just fine. Since it's a server, I don't expect overclocking, and the CPU should not draw more than like 8A (that's 96W). That leaves a bit more than 50A, which is mor than you would have available on the Galaxy.

A PC Power and Cooling Silencer 610 or 750 would be my top alternative. The Galaxy is HOOGE!

Dang. Some typos/omission in that post

For the Galaxy: 12V1 + 12V2 = 34A max load and 12V3, 12V4, and 12V5 = 41A max load.

Still, the main argument is still valid The PC Power & Cooler Silencer will have about 10A more available for your SLI and HDD's (Based on a single CPU server). Even with two CPUs, I think it's the better pick.

to clarify i was thinking about the 850 not the 1kw

What I like about the galaxy is the added cooling from the 2 fans

but performance/price (prices from www.newegg.com) wise its the best i can find

PC P&C Silencer is a better choice. It stays perfectly cool.

Hahaha.. I just argued the 1KW version probably won't do it... that goes even more so for the 850W version! With that one you have only 34A for the SLI and the 12 HDDs, plus everything else (Except CPU).

PC Power & Cooling... easily the better pick. And it's only $200.
