THis is a great idea, tho i dont see much of usage, only few people can afford this.

Not a bad price considering you can use it to run two systems. I see this being a great component for a streaming/gaming pc and the space saver idea. I now have an itch to build a dual guest system for gaming.

It's actually not bad for an 80+ Platinum PSU. Considering that you'll probably spend more on 2x500W 80+ Plat, it's a good deal.
Regarding usage, not that many people are willing to try it out (due to lack of creativity, or because they are simply scared of new[er] products), but right off top of my head I can come up with at least a dozen usage scenarios that do not involve mining.

It's good if you have a few motherboards on a test rig where you don't have to keep plugging/unplugging. I would like to see digital readout on PSU to show how much wattage i'm drawing from the wall socket.

I mean, is not everyday scenario that you will see a dual-system.

Cool. I was actually looking at their standalone PSU splitter just the other day. I have an old Dell EATX case that would hold ATX + ITX boards after minimal modding.

I love that Phanteks is coming out with unique well done products like this. I also like their combo & splitter PSU product. I can see people not having a big use for them. But I'm just glad they exist and someone can do builds that are so standard.

The price is right too. That 1200W is just a few more.

That was my first thought, actually. If it had 3 ATX connectors, it could single handedly power a mining board... but then it would need like 30 PCI-E cables, and something north of 3000w capacity... :fear:

No, I was thinking more in terms of consolidating 2 PCs into one for internet cafes, or dual-rig servers for businesses and enterprises.
As an example I'll use a simple application from my new employer: we have 2 servers which run 2 different software stacks for separate testing purposes. Both servers are always located in the same spot, but about once every month or two they move around (e.g. different datacenter, customer's HQ, or our own office). Right now we have to move 2x4U every time, cause the previous admin liked an overkill in terms of size and cooling, but I can probably rebuild this thing with 2xITX systems and stick it into a custom 2U enclosure without sacrificing performance or anything else...
It's a highly situational need for a dual-system, but here we have it anyways.

Also, I'd like to have one in my house too. One for work, and another one for even more work :banghead:

The biggest call we are seeing for this is for folks who want a gaming box and workstation box in .... well one box. Examples:

1. CAD Workstation: Intel i7 / nVidia GTX system for 2D and 3D drafting and an Intel Workstation CPU / Quadro for rendering

2. Intel i5 / nVidia Gaming system for playing games w/ TR system for hosting game server.
