That is an amazing PSU. Complete overkill even for 99% of enthusiasts but it is gorgeous.

Excellent review Hilbert. As hallryu stated, this power supply is total overkill for 99% of people out there. I've been playing around with this unit for about a week now and it's a solid design. EVGA did an excellent job on this one. In case anyone is wondering, I do have a load tester that will properly test power supplies and even take them to their limits if need be. This particular unit that I have "can" pull about 16 amps (15.62A to be precise) before OCP will trip. Milage will vary on other units. If my math is correct, that's is about 1880w. This is the only PSU I have ever tested that has gone +200w past is max wattage and managed to survive.

Monster PSU that. I'd go for that now if I was in the market for one similar to mine, the cabling is just beautiful.
