Question Best 1,000 WATT PSU ??

Hi,

My first post!

What would be your choice for a 1,000 WATT PSU to run a workstation/server?

Is there one or two that stand out as best?

Thank you,

Chess Gator

Yeah, the problem I have about this one is the criticism of the noisy fan is there another one without the noisy fan?

It is to bad they did not figure out a way to make it quieter, I would probably buy this one!

The efficiency is only so-so on it, the voltage regulation isn't as good as other units, etc.

I'd have to say Coolermaster Real Power Pro 1KW. I've yet to find any review site not giving high praise to this unit.

Talking Ten Kilowatts of Power: 1000W+ PSU Roundup

Here is a recently published article Ten Kilowatts of Power: 1000W+ PSU Roundup. It is quite long so I have not read it yet.

I guess that when you really need 1kW of power the noise of PSU doesn't matter among video cards fans screaming, tons of HDD's seeking, a couple of 120 case fan's at full-speed...

My personal favourite, Thermaltake Toughpower 1000w or any brand that uses CWT 1 Kw & up platform. But Ultra 1 Kw seems pretty good, and Silverstone Seventeam's OEMed 1 Kw Olympia/Decathlon is a good alternative too.
