Probably the best performing ~1000w unit on the market. The Enermax Revo85+ 1050w was the only unit (previously) to do as good as it (did slightly better actually.)
The Revo85+ 1050w is discontinued and replaced by the worse performing Revo85+ 1020w unit.
OCZ ZX1000w and the Sparkle Gold Class 1000w are both VERY close to the Corsair; they are actually about 2% more efficient on full load, but the minor rail voltage regulation is worse on the minor rails (coming in about 2-2.5%, vs Corsair's 1-1.5%)
The Super Flower Golden Green 1000w Platform is good, but not as good as the Great Wall design used by Sparkle and OCZ. Nor as good as the CWT Design used by Corsair.
The Golden Green's 12v Vreg slips at 1000w to 1.5% (vs the 1% of the other units) and the ripple goes up to 86mv on the 12v rail. The Corsair barely hit 30mv and the OCZ/Sparkle Units have almost no ripple (less than 20mv)
