    Scythe unveiled its new ultra-high capacity PSU, the Chouriki 2 Plug-in 1600W. Measuring a massive 240 x 150 x 86 mm WxDxH, the PSU uses a dual asymmetric 12V rail design, featuring a 110A rail, and a second 50A rail. It boasts of 80 Plus Silver, with high efficiency at low AC voltages such as 90~120VAC (although 220~250VAC is supported), and most modern PSU safeguards, governed by its secondary IC.

    The Chouriki 2 Plug-in is partially modular, with its 24-pin ATX and two 8-pin EPS connectors being fixed; while sixteen 6+2 pin PCIe, sixteen SATA power, eight Molex and two Berg connectors are detachable. The unit is cooled by a temperature-controlled 135 mm fan, with manual fan overrides. Slated for November 21, and backed by a 5-year warranty, the Chouriki 2 Plug-in 1600W is priced at 26,980 JPY (US $340).

    Which connectors take power from the 50A rail?

    110A on a single rail is still to much imo.

    but aren't all PSU's plug in? (i know... they're probably referring to modular... but still)

    This thing would trip one of the breakers in my house. Damn 15A and 20A lines. (110v)

    Not to be picky but you'd think they'd put a grommet around the cable exit.

    Scythe USA >> DEAD

    Scythe USA is dead, so unless your importing direct from Japan, you will never see one in the USA!

    Scythe makes PSUs?

    Anyway, with new CPUs and GPUs having improved power efficiency, I don't know why anyone needs more than a 800W PSU.

    Even in the extreme case of dual CPUs and quad GPU setups, I still don't think anyone needs 1600W.

    Definitely an E-peen item.

    Four OCd 7970s and two OCd Westmere Xeons, and this already isn't enough. You could also add high-RPM HDDs, watercooling...

    But of course, that hardware setup itself is very much e-peen.

    As I said, I'm talking about recent power efficient CPUs. That would be from Sandy Bridge on.

    But I doubt even that setup needs 1600W at any one time. Could be wrong, but would like to see the numbers on that.

    Point is though, the number of people who actually need this PSU would be very close to zero.

    Because I read a lot of complain on NEX1500 Classified price lets see what people get for 90$ more over this Scythe Silver half modular PSU.
    First let's count PSU like same power, EVGA can 1650 OC Mode this is 1600W.
    -Gold Standard
    -Full Modular
    -Custom Rails (Single, Multi, OC Mode)
    -Software Monitoring and fan + 12V Rail control(readings are better and voltage increase is exactly 0.05V measure with voltmeter because of that you can keep strong 12V rail)
    -10 years warranty
    -bunch of single sleeve cables competitive with every custom sleeve better than any other

    Holding and bag is for someone plus for someone not, and far far far better look.

    There are advantages for 90$. People must now only 1500-1600W without anything is 350-400$ without looking in Gold, Silver,...80 plus normal can cost 300$.
    That is not 1200 and Seasonic and CORSAIR try to avoid what they can to present for 1500W not to talk about something more.It's not only about Scythe with other manufacturer is same and price can hit and 350-360$ easy with every other manufacturer who start to offer 1500-1600W.

    Only without cables with everything other NEX1500 price is about 360$.
