    Enermax Galaxy - 1kW PSU

    Currently in final production at the time of writing, the two samples in the photos are engineering samples so we couldn’t get out hands on one for testing, but having run the figures past Rys, they add up to just a little over 1000W output, drawing 1400W from the mains… so no need for a dimmer switch in the lounge anymore!

    The term "electricity shortage" springs to mind.

    Probably be cheaper to build your own wind turbine.

    Just remember kids, it won't use 1400W of mains power unless you fully load it, but still... blimey!

    The trouble is if people keep making these huge capacity powersupplies, then component manufacturers will think energy efficiency doesn't matter and go for bigger rather than smarter CPUs/GPUs/etc. Then again it's just following the general trend of bloating, take the system requirements of successive M$ operating systems for instance - the new ones are plain scary.

    PC Power & Cooling (who Alienware use in their super high end ALX systems) currently have a 850w PSU with a peak of 950w. It is currently for sale, but costs nearly $500. So for this Enermex, expect an enourmous price to go along with its enourmous wattage

    Can anyone say overboard. Common what in the holy god do you need to do with a Kilowatt of power. If you need to have five or more drives then it is time to look into a dual PSU redundat setup not a lone Kilowatt PSU.

    I nearly bought a PCP&C PSU not long ago. They are the mutts nuts.

    I expect the Enermax will be very expensive, given that mining dilithium crystals is no easy feat.

    I wonder HOW much hardware would be required to get this to run at "FULL LOAD"

    I expect the electricity bills will be quite hefty as well to say the least.

    Steves 1/2 right - only I heard it was naquadria in there

    I hear that they are considering using two of these to power the next enterprise?

    I'm scared at how many sci-fi shows we have referenced in this thread.

    You could quite possibly need this PSU to run a quad opteron system, or quad SLI- http://www.tomshardware.com/hardnews...26_155843.html
