    Do want. I hope eVGA does well with the whole SR-2 line, the more focus we can get on this market the better.

    The TPQ is a single rail design split into 6 "virtual" rails for OCP protection. Shammy explained it I do believe so you can go look that up. Plus why are 24/7 stable guys ing about multi-rail this and OCP that? TQP obviously can handle ln2 cooled 980x and ln2 cooled Fermi(s) just fine. You are not going to hit any OCP with this PSU, especially since OCP doesn't actually kick until 50A. Before you come back with some lame argument about load balancing, you might wanna do a little search on the amps a 6ghz+ 980x draws too. A hint would be to go check out kingpincooling.com. Shammy posted all of the numbers they got at Antec's lab.

    As others have already said, this is way too late to the game

    Corsair already has them outclassed with their AX1200 PSU.

    I'm thinking eVGA is going to have to make this thing a bargain if they want to sell them. Most enthusiasts research their power supply before they buy it. It's pretty hard to beat Corsair's reputation for quality products (and their 7 year warranty too)

    80 mm fan huh?
    As if they didn't realize that they could've gone for 4x40 mm fans instead..

    I'm a little shocked they're letting the user adjust the fan speed - that's a recipe for disaster, in my books. Even a 80+Silver still makes a lot of heat at 1200W output.

    I am sure the fan will ramp up no matter what if it starts reaching critical temperatures.

    I heard that so then I'll get a multi rail to use for the video BUT will keep the single rail for cpu.

    That sounds just like EVGA strategy. This will most likely be more than a TPQ. I mean they have to pay for the stickers that cover the antec stickers.

    This Antec/EVGA has Enhance as its OEM while your Coolermaster is made by AcBel.

    They have NEVER let me down..

    Well, seeing what's come out with the new Silencer Mk II line so far, I'd hang onto your old ones as long as possible. Seems that changing OEM's from Seasonic to Sirfa wasn't the brightest thing to do.....while the new units do put out the stated amperage, the ripple/noise generated by the new units has about tripled compared to the old Seasonic made units. (Testing of the new Silencer Mk II 950W showed ripple/noise at full load of 70mV on the +12V rail and 30mV on the minor rails.....over 3X higher on the +12V rail and a 50% increase on the minor rails than what was seen with the Silencer 910W.)

    In fact, with its sloppier soldering on the PCB, looser voltage regulation, worse ripple/noise generation, it is handily beaten in construction and electrical performance by a comparable OCZ Z-series power supply, which is practically identical to the Mk II internally, and comparable units from Corsair, Enermax, XFX, Seasonic, and others.

    Like was said in a review:

    Re-branding Sirfa built OCZ-like products under the PC Power & Cooling banner makes PC Power & Cooling what Mercury has been to Ford for the last 15-20 years. As such, if this is the new hotness from PC Power & Cooling then, like another famous king, PC Power & Cooling just died on the toilet.

    Eh, it is pretty close based on comparing the Corsair to the Antec.
    The Corsair sits at $300 with a 80Plus Gold rating, the efficiency is above 90% most of the time.
    The Antec TP Quattro has a Silver rating and stays around 87-88% most of the time but is priced a little cheaper, $269-$329.
    The only other thing that really sets them apart is the fact that the Corsair has a 140mm fan vs the 80mm in the Antec. The Antec can get quite noisy when the fan ramps up.

    hmmm it took them this long to slap a new sticker on that thing?
    why are the buttons blue? shouldnt it be red like the board?

    and yeah a bigger fan would be better to keep the noise down and the psu cool id think?

    slap an overclocking sticker on it and charge three times the price. That is the state of things these days unfortunately.

    cause people are buying it... cant really blame companies for charging this much, they charge as much as people are willing to pay, obviously...

    it funny cause youd think with ocing going mainstream people would make more educated buying decisions and go for price perf, but the opposite is happening

    They call that thing modular? It has more cables off it than damn near any other power supply. At least the cables are nice and long.
