Note that this 'review' doesn't actually test the PSU. They hook it to a rig that doesn't even get close to use 1200W (which they admit).

Thus, the only thing we know so far about this PSU is that it looks nice, has plenty cables, and yes, it works. That's it. Nothing about quality of the rails, voltage regulation, efficiency, temperatures, etc. Not even a view of the inside.

Here is an alternative review from Jonnyguru:http://www.jonnyguru.com/review_deta...=53&page_num=5
Pretty good, but not perfect.

Also, the PSU delivers 84A on the 12V rails, combined or single.

Good alternativea are the silverstone OP1000 (1000W, 80A on a single 12V rail), PC Power & Cooling 1000W (reviews of toght are here: http://www.jonnyguru.com/review_deta...=49&page_num=5) and the Ultra X3: http://www.jonnyguru.com/review_deta...103&page_num=4

Depends on what you hang on that PSU. 84A is a darn lot of current, and you'll need serious stuff in your case (triple 2900's, AMD Quadfather FX-74's, a RAID0 with a bunch of hard drives, etc.etc.).

It will draw 1500W from the wall at 80% efficiency and full 100% load.

Note that many vacuum cleaners use about as much power, and they don't shut down the house

There are blow dryers that draw up to 1800W

Note that on the AC side, W isn't equal to V x A.... not sure what the exact formula is though

Europe FTW! lol

For those interested, most sockets can handle up to 16A, and our circuit breakers are 14-20A

Looks cool and all but I would still get the X3 1000W guy before I got that thing .

Isn't 1400w the max you can pull from a single (standard) home socket?

probably depends on the power company.

i'll probably never use more than 700W. right now i'm not even fully utilizing what i have now
post #20 of 27
By the time we will actually use this kind of power it'll be old and dieing.

750W Silverstone or PCP&C with single rails that are at 60A is more than enough to power the biggest, baddest rig out there today.
