    Hot deal on this PSU @ $189.00. Not familiar with the seller though.

    Here's a link to the hot deal thread. $189 is freakin' sick for this piece of hardware, but I've never heard of the retailer before.

    Yes, I recall the 1000W unit doing very well, however I'd imagine some changes were necessary in order to increase output by 60%.
  8. X-3 1600W now for sale. Can we get a review?

    Link to item for sale, but no JG review.

    I'd like to know if this PSU sucks before I purchase it to power my new rig. It'll be a dual QX9850 and XFX X10850XTX XXX edition Quad-SLI with TECs on...

    You should check out the pic of the PSU label in this review... No mention of 2% on the 12V rail (from the manual?) It's just 1% p-p. :)
