    That's a 15A socket on that bad boy. I have never seen a 15 amp socket in a residential property. Call your sparky and have him install a 15 amp outlet before you buy.... Also there is probably going to be other things that will need to be done before your house can supply 15 amp current..... If this really does need 15 amps then check your infrastructure first.

    It may cost more to install the 15 amp circuit than it does for the PSU.....

    What?????? 15 amp circuits are a standard in most homes. That is probably one of the most common breakers in Home Depot, True Value, Lowes, and other home hardware centers. Hell, the place that I live in now has two 15 amp breakers and 2 20 amp. Double 30 amp for the dryer plug.

    Since nobody asks, why the handle? Do we really carry around our PSU that often?

    Time to get a extension from the basement washer :)

    A lot of places have it, it's just mainly used for washers\
    dryers mainly in house holds.



    Although for $450 they can put it were the sun don't shine..

    Weirdly, the 650W, 750W, and 1000W PSUs of EVGA's SuperNOVA series are made by FSP. The 1500W has a blank on the OEM column of my source. :laugh:

    Here in Australia the standard outlet is 10 amps. 15 amps plugs also have a larger earth pin so if you want to use a standard 15 amp cable you would have to at least change the plug here. Not sure if we have 10 or 15 amp breakers in residential properties here either. However I would imagine seeing as they would be on a 10 amp circuit you would only use a 10 amp breaker. Could be wrong though, however I know our sparkies at work normally have to make some changes when we want a new non-standard outlet.

    Different standards for different countries. Probably a consideration for anyone on 230v. My main point still stands. Check your power capabilities first.

    Now which one is the question? Corsair 1200 platinum or this?

    I like the braided cables in the eVGA. Other than that, I think Im more than fine with 1200watts platinum from Corsair...

    .... 50A? In a living room? Back home we had 30A max, and that was on a farm with heavy equipment running. 50A is quite a lot for a normal home, even on 110V. :laugh:

    On 110V, a 50A circuit would normally be used for something like a central air conditioner, electric range, electric water/room heater, dryer, etc. Most of those use 220V or 110/220 mixed voltage (220 for the heating element, 110 for the rest of the device's electrical needs; or for a large electric motor). The only one there I can see that would normally be just 110V at 50A would be electric baseboard heater.

    What he'd be doing with a 50A circuit in the living room, you got me. Our garage has a subpanel run off a 60A circuit from the main panel in the house... 15A is standard for plug-ins and lighting, 20A for kitchen plugs (with a T-Plug outlet).

    NEX1500 Classified

    Yes I love red/black combination and clean look.
    It's clean now when I remove Seasonic X-750 and their cables like snake when try to lose shirt. I love Seasonic PSU but their cables are joking and I still need fingers.
    If pay someone to make for me that overpriced NEX1500.
    This is perfect, five plastic bag hermetic closed with perfect thin, strong single sleeve cables without srink.
    I buy MDPC-X, Tool,.. everything and preper self to lose warranty... But this is paradise, sleeve is perfect wires are strong almost complete back in their position after bent, no different lenght srink, no fixing srinks after some time, no sleeve dropped from Srink...Paradise.
    Some people don't understand and they are ready to buy 100$ cheaper AX1200 or Seasonic Platinum and later to overpriced NEX1500 with normal sleeve cables to avoid this
