[TPU] Corsair AX1500i Officially Titanium Rated - Page 8

post #71 of 148
I have my computer running off of my kitchen circuit and my 3 monitors/speakers running on the living room circuit. My computer was snapping the living room circuit at full power tongue.gif

Split level house. The living room and kitchen are a giant room. I have a big couch separating the rooms and my computer is kinda on the dividing line between being in the kitchen and being in the living room.

To everyone stating this is "overkill" or "it's great for mining", kindly head over to classy club.

A couple of 780Ti Classys overvolted and not LN2 but water cooled can easily pull more than a 1000W just by themselves.

Tri 290/290X or even 7970s in the 1200-1300MHz range with 1.3v or above can push the mightiest of PSUs out there today to its limits.

Lepa 1600w G has terrible ripple when reaching it's limits and Tt PP1475w is a very old design, so it would be nice if we can have decent products on the high-end for their high-end prices, not just because there is no other alternative.

Key word: a couple overvolted.

Mine is on a 20 amp Isolated circuit, isolated home run ground also. Its easy to do.

Most PSU will produce ripple as they reach closer to their, thermal or volt cut off.
The more you pay the better it should be. I only buy Enermax for my personal computers. Because Enermax PSU's are built by Enermax people, in a Enermax factory, signed off by an Enermax qa inspector.
In the old days they were the best.

Now a days there are a lot at the top.

Temperature considerations sound more reasonable for gamers.

(gamers don't run farms)

600W without the fan turning on on this sounds good.

I always liked the idea of systems not even needing fans turning on.

The point is, it's not happening. X99 is going to be using huge amounts of power. NVIDIA announced the Titan Z today. The 780 Ti, the 290X, all new GPU architectures are using huge amounts of power, and the ultra-high end people are putting multiple GPUs in their systems.

The truth is that the average power consumption of a "mainstream" computer will go down. But there'll always be people pushing the limits. That's who this is for.
I agree 100% with George. This new hardware release is perfect timing for me. I am getting ready for a new building in the 900D using three 780 Ti cards. As soon as X99 and Haswell-E are here, I'll be up and running. The last bloody thing I want to worry about is having enough good, clean power. Kudos to Corsair for not being a follower, but a leader.
And no, I am not one of the "uniformed".

more option more feature can mean more faillure too , not sure i would like my psu to have too many gimmicks.
corsair link is a good idea if only it was distributed more wiedly , it s way to expensive and hard to get in many countries.
same goes for the corsair platinium ram light bar, great idea but now i know all these corsair feature are used to sell you the base item and then they never bother distributing the rest making the premium that you pay in the first place a ripe off.
That's pretty much why i don't buy corsair anymore,...you pay a premium and it s nearly everytime for nothing, give you the right to buy more stuff for it after if they feel like doing the effort to sell it in your aera/countries, otherwise it give you the right to pay twice the price to get it shipped to you , what a great deal , amazing.
