HOW MUCH POWER do you actually need to run two water-cooled Socket 1207 CPUs at 3.0 GHz each, two overclocked Nvidia GeForce 8800GTS graphics cards, 150GB Raptor drive and 4GB of memory clocked at a fast 1GHz PC2-8000 clock?
If you ask around the show, you will get answers ranging from 850 to 1200 watts, but engineers at Corsair managed to produce incredibly efficient power supply. Rated at only 620 watts, this one offers nearly 90% efficiency and is able to support four hot chips, ton of memory and Raptor hard drives. Even the water-cooling setup is powered by that puny PSU.
Truth be told, this is not a new product – it came out last year, but it turned out that it is more than capable of running 2007 spec hardware, and will give out enough juice for the AMD Quaddies, when they decide to appear on the map.
