Well those who need this are minority but I can see some uses for such a PSU. Like, for example, powering your phase change unit from the same PSU as the rest of your rig.
It's gonna take me a while to find it. I know I saw a news post with K|NGP|N using a 1kW PSU for each 580.Originally Posted by jellis142
Find me a GTX 580 that pulls 1000 watts and I'll chew on my fake leather couch when I get home :
Just kidding... but really, that would be a kick-butt thing to see. This is obviously for Tri-Quad setups with elaborate cooling/peripherals/overclocks. Not bad to see a unit this powerful, as we've sort of hitting an efficiency plateau.
This guy is thinking along the same lines as I am.Originally Posted by Syan48306
I can pull up tp 1000W but if the 1500W's fan doesn't kick on till then, then thats a reason to oversize to 1500W
