    60amps on a single 12v line, that's insane. Probably not as good for SLI/XFire users as a dual or triple 12v rail system would be, but certainly superior for cpu and chipset requirements. This is almost designed for super pi benchers. :D

    actually, I'm betting the single 12v rail would.. beat the crap out of a split rail system, when its rated this high.

    If one rail gets overloaded, and the other is at max, GG psu.

    I'm more worried about the wires melting from the current.. o_O

    the extra signal cleanness of multi-rail PSUs is a delusion. theyre all connected to a shared master overcurrent protecttor anyway.

    For those who don't already know, PC Power & Cooling makes the finest PSUs on the planet. They are OEM suppliers to Sun and other server companies for mission critical applications. I've tested and used a variety of their PSUs over the years and have yet to find anything even remotely close in performance, quality or value.

    I hope they have it in different colors. I doubt copper would look good with most cases...

    It isnt about looks. Its about performance. and if they used copper, theres a reason they did ;)

    humm its intersting to compair the 510 sli/express to this one the express 510 has a 40a 5v and this one has a 30a 5v rail this one also has les temp and humidity tolerances but other than that specs seem to idicate that this one is far supiror in all other respects (that i can see) though i wont pass final judgment till i see someone do a stress test while monitoring voltage ripple etc (if anyone knows of a review like that plz link)

    btw it isnt that much more than the express/sli 510 lol 197$ vs 199$

    Hahaha trust me I know. I mean the metal might serve a purpose in and of itself, but when you're into modding, a lot of cases just don't come with colors that match the "color" of copper. Like mine for instance is black and blue. It's just a thought. Then again, if you wanted to take the time, you could paint it, I guess...

    From the engineers/overclockers that want performance, not looks: Bugger off.

    This is marketted for performance, not modders ;)

    If you want looks, buy an OCZ. lol :roll:

    There are PSUS as good as PC POWER & COOLING

    Antec makes great powersupplies as does Enermax. Thermaltake and Mushkin do too. So yes, there are PSUs just as good if not better. However, PC Power and Cooling is one kick ass PSU maker, and they've been doing it for 20 years. Just thought I would throw my 2 cents in to the piggy bank.

    Nah, even other PSU makers will admit PCP&C = the best. period. :)

    Although there are quite a few other psu makers that are more than acceptable in this market =)

    Everybody needs to stop acking like they know what their talking about and put one of these babies under some stress tests. Becaue how often have you seen benches done on a PSU with 60amp on a signal +12 volt rail comparied to a dual or quad.

    Exactly the opposite as a single rail PSU most benefits SLI/Crossfire users.

    I know I know! Performance is everything, I always consider that first, I was just stating a point. Anyone who has a window in their case (I should have been clear that I was referring to people who have windowed cases) will most likely consider the color of the object they buy.

    But here is the caveat of this conundrum:
    With CPU's using less current to operate (with GPU to follow...hopefully in the near future) high power PSU's show their obsolesce already. So, it would be advantageous to create a PSU with better tolerances then more wattage as the days of P4, netburst have come to an end. Once these new AMD (K8L) and Conroe/Kentfield CPUs enter server land...the need for high power output PSUs are no longer needed. However, this is IMO...

    AMD and Intel have felt the power usage stick pretty good this time around...

    Ati and Nvidia however... seem to keep pushin on... :wtf:

    I'm gonna try this PSU, I'll let you how it can provide enough power for my rig, otherwise Zippy 850w it is.
