Xigmatek Displays 80 Plus Platinum 1450W Goliath PSU

An 80 Plus Platinum-compliant 1450W PSU? No, we're sober. Xigmatek is flexing its engineering muscle in the PSU department with a semi-modular PSU that has both high-power and high-efficiency. The Goliath GP-1451 from Xigmatek gives you all the connectors you'll ever need, and with 1450W, enough power for 4-way SLI, 4-way CrossFireX, dual-socket systems. What's to not to like? The Goliath uses an asymmetric double 12V rail design, the first rail can deliver 55A, and the second 75A. Apart from 24-pin ATX and EPS connectors, most connectors are detachable to improve cable management. The beast is cooled by a 130 mm fan.

This looks like it should be a pretty good PSU.

:p BTW, very minor nitpick, but I think "What's not to like?" sounds better than "What's to not like?"

So it seems like platinum supplies are going to start rolling in at the top end from everyone in about a year. What's the next mile stone going to be? There isn't a rating above platinum yet is there? Palladium? Diamond? Tacos? I think they should just move the scale up from 80 plus to 90 plus; starting the color grading over.

A lot of times there are sacrifices made for the sake of efficiency. Namely voltage regulation. Some high wattage units can keep +12V regulation within 1% (Antec HCP1200 and Corsair AX1200) while some can't (Enermax MaxRevo 1350W). I wonder where this HEC built Xigmatek will fall.
