    Good Lord, when are GPUs going to 20nm?

    Regardless, I'm glad we rewired our house with 12g wire and 20a circuits.

    I was about to ask how you even run one a 1.5 kW rig on conventional household room wiring/circuitry without burning down the house. Reply

    The fact that it's Titanium helps. You can run it full load and not trip a breaker. But if you have a printer, etc. it should go on a separate circuit. Oh.. and if you burn your house down because your load at the wall is > 15A, you need to fire your electrician. ;-) Reply

    I lost all faith in Corsair after I learned how poorly written and rigid the software used to monitor their power supplies is. If they cannot even write software properly, can they really make proper hardware? Reply

    Exactly. How do "Poorly written power supply software" and "lost _all_ faith in Corsair" follow?

    It's like saying, "I lost all faith in Toyota when I learned that some of their 2009 Tacoma trucks had paint peeling problems." Um.

    Corsair writes their crappy software in-house. The power supplies themselves, however, are manufactured by companies that know what they're doing (Flextronics, in this case). Reply

    Actually, the software's not written in-house either. ;-) Reply

    Only someone going tri or guad gpu would need something like that... even there, tri or quad AMD gpu. After seeing the result of two 295x in CF, I don't see any point going tri or quad... or buying a 1500W PSU. I think Corsair is crazier than the video card makers... http://u.to/2RFKBw Reply

    This would be handy for a GPU based crypto miner(I have 7 cards running on my largest rig). If they had put this out 6-12 months ago, they would have done really well. Reply

    7 cards? With a 290X running 300+W I doubt that very seriously. I can't even do 3 on 1000w. 500 more watts is one card at max. Reply

    "has native USB support for Corsair Link for monitoring the power supply."

    shouldnt the corsair link software work on windows 8/8.1 first?! it has been over a year now and the software is not working properly, so......

    Actually, it's been over a year SINCE the version of Link that was Windows 8/8.1 compatible. Reply

    Jonny Guru's review of this is up, and it's a total beaut of a PSU.

    That said, who the hell needs this, other than miners or people with CF 295X2?
