edit: oops got a little bracket there in the title, pls remove?

fixed. i believe you should be able to edit titles using the 'go advanced' button in the editor.



that's one bad ass power supply but that's more than a 2500k and board or a good mid-high graphics card. maybe if you've got a gpu computation farm going on it'd be a solution.

Yeah, I didn't post it for its mainstream utility ... It's just a badass PSU as you said. POWAH.

It's manufactured by Enermax, by the way.

Wow, it blew some parts on the load tester, rather than blowing the PSU. That's a bit of a change from the usual reviews of junk PSUs that are usually the opposite.

So when should we expect to see the MAXREVO 1600 Gold? ;)

As for "needing" this much power you don't. Notice the peak efficiency occurs around 700W. That's a typical "high end" system load particularly if one uses dual power supplies for multiple GPU and the other taking care of multi socket motherboards, etc. It's not good to draw 100% load on a PSU for extended periods of time, even though better ones can handle it.

How often is a machine going to draw 700w though, unless your gaming non stop?

Wish I had time. :)

Gaming does not stress hardware as much as computing does. WCG/Prime Grid, etc. 24/7 load on CPU/GPU for months at a time. This requires a good PSU.
