I'm still rather partial to those myself, as well as the Ultra X3 1kW. My CWT 1200W is still getting 24/7 duty in my main rig and doing fine.

anyone mentioned the corsair hx1000? not that I know anything about it, but the 620 is so popular

depends what you mean by 'best'.

overall?

there are so many criteria, personally for me, as long as it does the job, quietness and has to be modular, and some degree of longevity wrt connectors.

scrap that, just read it properly, dOH! if its for a server, its got to be top tier, or tier 2 I would say. does it HAVE to be this magic 1KW? I was well impressed with my etasis and zippy's, just not good for my home use...ie noise and not modular....if etasis made a modular and poss. with a huge fan, if that would fit, well....

just a comment, these are largely units thta are marketed toward enthusiast users, surely there are dedicated server psu's for industry use?

Corsair HX 1000w, hmm, that beast's supposed to be built by CWT, right ? I wonder whether it would use the same platform shared with the like of TT Toughpower series -repeating the VX 550w & TX 750w stories.

The model I originally saw was based on the same CWT platform as the 1000/1200w

It is based on that platform.

It's thoroughly modified, though. More than any other unit we've released. Comparing test results of our 1000W versus other CWT-built 1000W units will show some significant differences.

You did a TT Toughpower 1000W review, right? A direct compare/contrast would be very interesting.

Right now we're waiting on production to ramp up since we've just about finalized our changes. Once we get that and the boxes/labels all printed, it's done.

You're on my short list, of course. I'll have Steve send you one of the first ones.

I had the 1200w...but I haven't had my hands on the CWT PUC without any branding before. Ummm...yeah just have him drop me an email. Could do the Puc as a heads up with the HX1000 to see the differences. Might be neat.
