    Early results:

    79% eff @ 20% load

    83% eff @ 70% load

    Only dropped .12V going from 2A on the 12V to 70A.

    Looks like Jonny is hanging with 8800GTS cards in SLI these days.

    Can 14AGW fit into an ATX pin? That's a hell of a step up from the typical 18AWG. SuperMicro units use 16AWG.

    WOW! The sinks sure are different from the 850 watter. It's almost 80Plus certifiable.

    How deep is it? How loud?
    Worth a good looking over. http://www.badcaps.net/

    Actually, those are eVGA GTX cards.

    Yeah. The 14g goes about half way down the cables and is then split into 16g underneath some heatshrink before getting split off into the connectors at the end. Very cool.

    That's what they're working on now. Getting that 79% up to 80%.

    It's only 6.5" deep and the 135MM fan is VERY quiet.

    Very cool The use of 14AWG keeps the typical rats nest of wiring around the output/secondary caps to a minimum. This will help the electrolytics lead a long healthy cool life.
    I've tried crimping two 18AWG wires into an ATX pin and it is not an easy task.

    One more question, what cap brand is the PCB populated with? Or should I just wait for the review?
