I don't really get the point of overclock mode personally.. why not just allow 1650W when a 230 VAC source is connected?
Still, this PSU looks awesome. Is 16x 6+2pin PCIe right? That's enough for 8 cards by itself, not counting the 6 pins..
1650 W? What could you possibly do with that much power?:D
Plug in a mini cooler for your beer? But hey it does look good i love the blacm and red combo. If i had a color layout rhat would be it. Red and black but id preffer a corsair ax 1200i .... red and black baby. It sure is good for super noding need that extra juice
The specs are pretty awesome themselves, but I actually like the 10 year warranty, and EVGA's EAR and step-up programs. Anyone that can really get good use out of this kind of hardware is going to put it through some heavy workload. Nice to see they are making sure the customer is going to be set for some time. And if they want in the future the next best thing, they can upgrade cheaper by trading in this one, I really, really like that part. More companies should do that. Although in my personal experience, I wouldn't need it, I keep older parts around as a just in case type thing.
wow that things a beast but there's no way id take advantage of such a rebust power supply, heck im still using a 500W PSU and it runs my i5 3570K and a GTX570! As well as 2 case fans and 2 cpu fans!
Who really needs a 1500W PSU. . Just curious
If you need to Quad or Tri SLI a GTX 690
