Excellent review, Paul. I run this power supply and it is awesome. It handles Tri-SLI GTX280s and 4870X2 CrossFire with no problems.

Awesome review and awesome power supply, which is the reason I brought it.

Although, I am starting to realize that a few review sites have gotten some mixed results, one in particular claiming the 1000HX could not output it's rated power, which I found to be rubbish since every other review I've encountered has gone to say it's outputs it's maximum power without breaking a sweat, or in this case, a choke. :lol:

That's a killer PSU! Only 12 SATA connectors, huh? :P
