Great power supply by all accounts. Can I ask why you've gone for such a high powered unit?

 

If the answer is because I wanted to then that's good enough for me! ;)

 

Cheers

It was one of the recommended psu on this site. I wanted above 1kw , on off switch and modular .

The price was very good for that much power.

I know , it's a lot . :blink: I remember getting a 600w psu and thinking I will never need more power. :)

EVGA has excellent X58 models.

 

I do like evga ,both of my vga cards r evga as well as my M/B. :thumbs-up: Which of their boards are good oc'ers?

I do want sli, but not both sli and crossfire. Willing to go as high as 250.00, but hoping not to.

Thanks.

Crossfire is enabled by default on the X58 chipset. If it can SLI, it can also crossfire.

 

I read however that NVIDIA may be developing a new Intel chipset. If it happens, you might see in a while i7 motherboards supporting only SLI, if that's what you want.
