    BFG Technologies, Inc., the leading North American and European supplier of advanced NVIDIA-based 3D graphics cards, power supplies, and the Phobos High-Performance Gaming/Home Theater System, announced today the BFG EX-1200 modular power supply with Frequency Conversion Technology, which emulates virtually any size power supply and is at least 80% efficient, even with loads as low as 10% of the unit’s maximum capability.

    The BFG EX-1200 modular power supply is rated at 1200 watts continuous at 40 °C (140 °F) and features 98 amps on the 12 volt rail. The unit also has a separate +5VSB which provides better efficiency when the unit is in standby or powered down. The EX-1200 power supply is 80 Plus certified and supports NVIDIA 3-Way SLI, making it the perfect choice for high efficiency and systems running multiple graphics cards.

    “Most high wattage power supplies are extremely inefficient when idle or running day-to-day office tasks”, said John Malley, senior director of marketing for BFG Technologies. “Our exclusive Frequency Conversion Technology enables the EX-1200 to maintain at least 80% efficiency even when not being tasked with power intensive 3D games, and when the system is idle it uses approximately one fourth of the power that it would during gaming. That means real energy savings for the customer and a greener environment for everyone.”

    Availability:
    The BFG EX-1200 modular power supply will be available at Newegg.com starting the week of March 23, 2009. For more information, please visit the product page.

    why would they make it modular? i don't think the guy that will buy this would use only 3 cables thus not nearly the 1200W this thing can give. I'm sure that if you buy this you pretty much need alot of Watts and Amps so modular makes no sense to me. sounds good enough though ill wait for a nice review on it.

    To help keep it clean and tidy. With the need for 1200 watts, it would make sense to some degree to help out as much as possible with cable management. Not to mention, even if you dont use all 1200W it still can convert itself down to what you need therefore not wasting alot of power.

    there is no way you can keep 3-way-sli an 8 pin cpu power cable the MOBO cable and the few sata power connectors that nice and tidy. i've been working in a computers lab and built i have no idea how many system and it actually seems that non modular PSUs are much simpler to arrange.i think it has something to do with the fact that all the cables come out as a single branch unlike modular PSU that they are a bit far from each other not sure yet.
    and the other thing if you dont use all 1200W [well maybe 800W] there is no reason to buy this monster it just costs so much more then an 750W PSU. the only reason you would buy this is if you actually do need a 1200W PSU and if you do then you are probably going to use most of the cables so its just going to be a pain using the modular system.

    If you need a 1200 Watt power supply you aren't going to give a crap about the amount of power this is going to save.

    But, please put it on my 3/4/500 Watt 80 plus gold certified PSU as standard...
