OCZ Announces the PC Power & Cooling Turbo-Cool 1200 SLI Ready PSU

OCZ Technology Group today announced the release of the Turbo-Cool 1200 power supply from PC Power & Cooling. Designed to offer the consumer market a professional-grade computer power supply, the 1200W Turbo-Cool is the ultimate power solution for those that require the very best, long-lasting, industrial-grade components for their mission-critical system or leading-edge gaming machine.


Continuing a long history of technical innovation and industry leadership, PC Power & Cooling has designed the Turbo-Cool 1200 for optimum power distribution to all components by utilizing their customary "single +12V rail" design. This trail-blazing approach to +12V rail design ends the need to budget power "across the rails" as is the case with the less effective multi-rail design found in the vast majority of high-performance PSUs on the market today.

"The release of the Turbo-Cool 1200 is another landmark event for PC Power & Cooling," stated Doug Dodson, founder of PCP&C and CTO for the OCZ Technology Group. "The Turbo-Cool series has a long history of providing an industrial, server-class computer power supply to the consumer market and the 1200 model brings the product line to new heights with a massive +12V continuous output of 90 Amps and an efficiency rating of 83%. Many of the top OEMs in the computing industry are excited to see the arrival of this innovative power supply."

The R&D labs of major industry OEMs, medical research facilities, high-end CAD users, movie studio special effects and animation units, military labs and national security firms, and many other users with the highest professional and mission-critical requirements, already use a Turbo-Cool series PSU as their power management solution of choice. Customers for the new state-of-the-art Turbo-Cool 1200 include computer industry heavyweights such as the NVIDIA Corporation.

As the leading graphics platform in the world, NVIDIA SLI Certification to the highest level is an essential characteristic of a maximum-performance power supply. The Turbo-Cool 1200 is SLI Certified by NVIDIA to run Dual GeForce 8800 Ultra, the highest configuration currently available. NVIDIA's power supply qualification test is the most rigorous of its kind and end-users cannot expect a power supply without official SLI certification to reliably run an SLI system. Consumers can rest assured that the Turbo-Cool 1200 will provide stable, well distributed, certified power to today's most power hungry platforms and beyond.

Delivering 1.2 Kilowatts of continuous power with an amazing 1300 Watts peak through a complete array of connectors including six PCI-E, the Turbo-Cool 1200 offers the industry's most robust consumer power supply design on the market. The Turbo-Cool 1200 is backed by a new 7-Year warranty commitment and the in-depth knowledge of PC Power & Cooling technical support. Each unit will ship with its own unique 14-point Certified Test Report generated at the PC Power & Cooling lab in San Diego, California.Source: PC Power & Cooling

Looks like we really will need a 1000-1200w PSU for Triple-SLi.

But aren't power requirements supposed to get down? We can't keep going until PCs take more power than an Air Conditioner.

I loved this part sounds like pure marketing BS. I'm pretty certain +12V was moved from single rails to Muti-rail design based on intels spec and for safety reasons.

Im sure this is the best 1200W power supply around, but there is honestly no need for it. I suspect the Quad PC P&C 750 is the most youll need, if that.

multi rail systems really provide no advantages over a well built single rail system. they are basically the same thing, bridge the points on a multi rail psu and it'll be single rail. multi rail psu's are widely used to prevent overloading the wires. but you can get better wires that can carry more power without becoming overloaded, and thats precisely what pcp&c does. single rail provides stability and power for things such as tecs and compressors, something a multi rail psu cannot do.
