Desktop computer systems available today have more and more power demanding components that offer the highest performance available. One of the most power demanding components is undoubtedly the graphic card, as more multi GPU and multi VGA systems hit the market. And because performance needs raw and high-quality power, PSU units have pushed their maximum output power to a continuous 1000W. One such solution is offered by the well-known PSU, computer chassis and computer cooling devices manufacturer, Cooler Master.
The company was the first to unveil first six +12V rails PSU unit, which is meant to render stable and powerful support to NVIDIA's QuadSLI multi graphics system. It was dubbed Cooler Master Real Power Pro 1250W. The power supply can easily be installed on any ATX computer case and as the name implies it is meant to provide 1250W of continuous power output, making it perfect for high-end computing rigs. The PSU isn't meant for your normal office desktop computers, as it wouldl be a waste of money to direct all that power into nothing less than high-performance hardware components.
High power means high temperatures and as far as PSUs go, it cannot lead to anything else but a big fan. This is why the Cooler Master product features a 135mm fan with an intelligent fan control system which allows it to provide a decent air flow, while keeping the noise level to a minimum of 16 dBA. You will be able to use up to eight SATA drives without the need of any additional cables and seven 4-pin peripheral devices can also be directly connected to the PSU.
As mentioned above the Cooler Master 1250W PSU isn't for everybody and the approximate price tag of almost $340 does nothing else but to further decrease the potential customers list.
