    I did consider it but it is so egregiously overkill that I quickly dismissed the idea. By "Money is no object" I mean that price will not be a limiting factor, not that I want to waste money

    But it does look like an amazing PSU...

    This bit in particular:

    The only thing I would like to see improved is the +12V rail's load regulation, which wasn't very tight. Such a class-leading PSU should stay within 1% on this rail, but the HX1000i only managed close to 2%. However, I should stress that 2% isn't bad, but it definitely isn't ideal either, especially for a PSU that belongs to the high-end category. CWT obviously meant to provide the unit with the highest possible efficiency, leading to cuts in +12V load regulation, which, however, also happens to be the most important rail of all.
    (I did go with the Corsair HX1000i though as it fits all my requirements and should provide ample enough power for this build. The only slightly disappointing aspect of my HX750i is coil noise, back in 2015 I had to send back the first unit I received due to excessive coil noise, and even the replacement isn't completely silent in that regard. I'm more annoyed by coil noise than by the virtually silent fan, I'd rather have the fan spin lightly to be honest.)
