    Corsair's PSUs are superb in my experience, and according to many of the best reviewers. Now they just need an HX model at around 720W to replace my luverly Zeus!

    Until Corsair settle on a decent single PSU manufacturer I'll take any such release with a pinch of salt. My heart sank when I heard the newer models were manufactured by CWT and not Seasonic (limited to the VX PSUs?), so who knows who makes these? Is this going the same as Hiper - great, value enthusiast PSUs perhaps released at a loss to build up reputation, then make all that loss back by cutting down on manufacturing costs by choosing a budget manufacturer while retaining the same initial costs?

    This isn't a dig at Hexus itself, but my nature, but in a review I couldn't trust Hexus to review the products either as they're sponsored, and by their own admission 'powered by Corsair'. As such any Corsair review is immediately met with a degree of scepticism from this pessimistic reader.

    1000w PSUs aren't just a niche product, I'm struggling to think of any application for a genuine enthusiast 1000w PSU. Seriously - even a quad Crossfire or SLi set up would push that. It's an advertising point, soaking up the uninformed with big numbers.

    perhaps overclocked skulltrail, 16GB of memory, quad fire and a heap of HDDs as a backup media server under virtualised linux?

    bring in stability and longevity (i.e. not threading on the lines of its max rating..).. I'd say 1000W isn't too far off..

    and the practical use of that isn't too far fetched for an enthusiast..
    Me want Ultrabook
