Rated 4 out of 5 by whymustienteranickname 6 dual pci cables sharing 4 25amp rails, not the best but good at what it does
Solid & compact well built unit, very quiet under full load.
My main gripe is that this psu has six sockets for dual 6+2 pcie cables i.e. it gives the impression that you could run six high end graphics cards at the same time. Sadly this is not the case as each socket does not have its own 12v rail. The best you can hope for is to run three or four high end graphics cards @ approx 1550-1600W.
If you are mining, then four cards is no problem. Get a copy of the user manual for specifics on which rails are shared.
For peripherals this psu is great as it was six plugs for Sata or molex or die (no ide cables included). Which means you could power 6 x 4 hard drives/dvd drives with ease.
Overall this is a great piece of kit but could of been even better is it had been engineered to have more individual 12v rails.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kwik Good features, just don't load one rail...
This is a well presented PSU, solid build and reasonable selection of extras.
It comes with 6x PCI-e 6 pin, and 6x 8 pin power sockets. More than enough right? Not really no.
If you are building a mining rig, this is not the PSU for you. Go with two 1300W EVGA units.
This has the power split strangely between the different sockets for different rails. 12v3,4,5,6 are split between halves of the pcie cable and also the sockets that power the molex/sata cables.
You end up needing to use two double connectors staggered when you get to four mid powered cards, effectively using up all six PCI-e sockets on the PSU. This PSU will not drive 4x 290s at just over reference. It will do 3x no problem, but as will the EVGA 1300. In a 6x 290 rig, two EVGA 1300's will serve you better.
Keeping this till more EVGA 1300's come in, then it's off to eBay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark Fantastic PSU. Very quite in excess of 50% load. Bought as a replacement for the EVGA super nova which frankly failed spectaculary as previously reviewed.
Cables could be a bit longer as I had to use extension cables to reach the connections on the server board as it is installed in a cosmos II case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ben Great power supply with flawless power regulation, everything you need.
Cable sleeving is poor quality, hard to put custom sleeving on. Expensive, but you get what you pay for
