    230W power adapter, that is nowhere near enough juice for this setup - my laptop power supply is more than that (at 240W!)! Not even close to enough power, doesn't the GTX 980 itself use up to 250W, which is already over the 230W power adapter! Is this a typo?

    EDIT: just looked up the current consumption of the reference GTX 980 - it's about 180W. That's lower than I thought, but that still doesn't leave enough overhead for the CPU and the rest of the system - it only leaves 50W for the rest of the system if you get the largest power adapter (230W). And certainly no room for overclocking. Must be a typo in the article for the size of the power adapters?!

    It seems to have two powerbricks? Maybe one for the GPU and one for the CPU depending on the model?

    Look interesting but to me it looks like a ps3 or a ps4 with the design of the case.

    Ah, that's more like it! 230W x 2 = 460W. So, that's enough power for a GTX 980 and i7 CPU, some overclocking headroom there too, although maybe not that much if you overvolt & overclock both CPU & GPU.

    It states a 230W "AND" a 180W power supplies.

    It comes with both, and requires both to work.

    You can't run a 4K game on a GTX 980 (+the rest of the system) and expect it to eat up only 230W.
