    Default Phanteks Revolt Pro/Power Combo?

    Hello,

    I am looking to power a monster workstation - 4x2080ti + 3970x. These components are regularly going to be under 100% load for hours on end. It seems the Corsair 1600w unit will not suffice, or at the very least be strained. I have burned out a couple PSUs in different systems in my time, a corsair ax1000 after 5 years of service and an EVGA 1600w after 2 years. Enter me searching for a dual PSU solution. The Phanteks power combo unit has terrible reviews, people complaining of it melting under load. So that seems a bad direction. Are the "revolt pro" power supplies by them any better? They are made by seasonic, so I think the actual PSU may be decent. I am mostly concerned with the power combo aspect of it. Open to any other suggestions as well.

    How have you "burned them out"? Did they just stop working, or.... ????

    They both stopped working.

    Do you think 1600w is enough for 4x2080ti + 3970x? It seems like it would be operating way out of efficiency.

    Corsair AX1600i is perfect for your build, best you can buy actually.

    The Corsair AX1000 is only 1 years old.

    Never heard anything about that thing anymore, but yeah it was clear on forehand that you shouldn't use it because it is dangerous.

    There is no such thing as "out of efficiency".

    Absolutely. There's Nvidia workstations out there using the same PSU pulling a lot more power.

    This doesn't make sense.
