i bet 99% of people buying 1000W PSUs never get close to use it's full output, current cpus and gpus make these almost redundant due to low power usage

Great something to power my overclocking AMD 9590 and 7990 crossfire setup! X)

​You are right however if you have a r9 fury especially the ones which can be unlocked, these can apparently draw up 400 watts unlocked. Pretty frightening to be honest

There was a test done on YouTube where it drew a max of 405 watts paired with an I7. I am comfortably running a fury and a I7 4790k overclocked with a 500w EVGA psu. I guess for crossfire furys you would defo need something above 750w.

The Corsair iLink is useful for someone doing hardware reviews as it can graph the power consumption. However, the AXi series are more useful for that kind of thing AFAIK as they can give readings for their PCIe cables.
But this and even the AX*i range is still only made by CWT although they do use good parts. For this kind of money I would really like to see a top-notch maker like SeaSonic, Superflower or Delta though.

Good power supply, using it with a 6800K and a 1070, no issues but then again most likely an overkill for what I have. Unless you have 3x1070 or 2x1080 then its best you go with a 750W as it would more than meet any single card need.
Also bought this for £100 from Amazon last year.

Wonder how you managed to get it for £100. Was it new??. Because camel tells a different story uk.camelcamelcamel.com/Cor…EAO

Looks like the camel is missing a few humps, as I got it for £119 on 20th Nov 2015 via a lightning deal.

People are missing the point here. PSUs are most efficient when they are around 50% load capacity. If your system runs at 500W+, this PSU is for you.

While true modern PSU's usually have a very flat efficiency from 10% to 90% with 50% being a few % higher. You would never make the cost back from buying a 1000w over a 500w. The only reason I can see is if the 1000w has a quiet mode when under low usage, the 1000w would nearly never use its fan and therefore be silent.

I have a GTX 1080 founders, and over clocked i7 4770k with 16gb ram, 2tb hdd and a 275 ssd.... my current psu is a corsair 600w should I be going bigger really ?

I've got an MSI GTX1070 Gaming X, stock i5 6600K, 32GB ram, one 2TB internal hard disk, one BluRay writer, one 4TB hard disk and one 120GB SSD, all running off a (nearly) 8 year old OCZ Stealth XStream 600W PSU without any issues - a 600W PSU ahould be fine for you.

Not if it's stable.

should I be going bigger really ?

Thats a whole different part of the internet ...
Single Cpu + single GPU should be fine on 500w (easily) especially modern kit biggest draw is nearly always the GPU ...(afaik).. even modern games dont fully extend CPU+GPU at the same time

Don't think so.
Anandtech with LGA2011 i7-4960K @ 4.2GHz shows a gaming peak of 335W at the mains with 318W peak for FurMark (Nvidia throttles FurMark like crazy unlike AMD). They used a Corsair AX1200i so at the mains means around 300W DC load so in theory a quality 350W supply would do:

ComputerBase using an overclocked i7-6700K got a peak 292W at the mains:
computerbase.de/201…10/
Although I can't find what PSU they used, but assuming Gold, it would be around 265W DC.

Of course, it does depend on what quality your 600W Corsair is. While this HX1000i is made by CWT, it better quality than other Corsair supplies by CWT like the VS*, and CX* line. Or the Greatwall-made CS* line.

Just like the camel you seems to miss details.. Is this from amazon or 3rd party?..But atleast its for £120 rather than your first claim from your alt account 'noiren' stating it to be £100 . duh

1000w lol better roll out a max OC 6900k and Tri SLI Titan X system to even make a dent in the capacity of this. Super overkill.

indeed nearly bought this but its over kill unless running sli cross fire ect

Just checked my order back in November 2015, was actually £119.99 but even so I have seen it at the £100-110 price mark this year when I bought the 6800K and some other stuff.

Umbandi this is my only account, rather than it being an 'alt' account - please stop being so rude.
I thought 'lightning deal' would have left you with no doubt about it being from amazon, that and the amazon invoice snippet I provided.
