    i have the 1250w version of the revolution, it appears theyve hard wired one pair of pcie leads i believe to 12v rail 3... now they include 3 modular ones as well but there are still 4 plugs to chose from when connecting to the supply, does anyone know which one of those plugs is the hardwired one, dont wanna overload a rail............. i knew there was a reason i always bought the hx corsairs :) any help is appreciated, thanks :) georgie

    the design is split into 5 "rails" but its actually running off of a single main rail.

    im running 3 gtx295s , i7 920 @ 4.2ghz, and a few other power hungry items on my 1050watter no problem.

    I have one as well. The 85+ Silver efficiency rating helps with the draw from the wall.
