    Yeah, you heard that right. Titanium, a new standard that I didn't even know of. Corsair powerhouse 1500 Watt AX1500i is now qualified for 80 Plus Titanium efficiency rating which obviously is bett...

    Great looking PSU. Investing from now might save some power for 24/7 systems that working for years and someday buy its own price with efficiency.

    Looks like Platinum was added back in 2009.

    And here we talk about Titanium ;)

    Regadless, great PSU!.. though I am not sure what non-uber-high-end PC might ever need such power =)

    A monster PSU like this would last for many, many years, 3+ generations of ultra high end hardware, hence the price. :D

    Next 80plus PSU classification: Strontium

    Would be nice to see 90+% efficiency on 600W psu's.

    Look at the 230 V efficiency (115 V that the US has is less efficient).
    [​IMG]

    Goes from around 90.5 percent efficiency at 20 percent load, maxes at 95 percent efficiency at 50 percent load, and then drops to around 92.5 percent efficiency at 100 percent load.

    I'm on 230 V here (it's 230 V -6/+10 percent as standard in Aus, my local supply is around 245 V).

    So, you can get it with 600W PSU's.

    They get a bad rep on here because they are a mutli-rail PSU, which isn't bad in a good quality modern PSU despite what people think (google psu rail multi single)
