    London--8 June 2007--Akasa announced today that they will be shipping a new 1000W and 850W PSU in mid-July. Appropriately named PowerMax, Akasa are targeting this new range of high-end power supplies directly at the gaming market.

    PowerMax 1000 and PowerMax 850 demonstrates our ongoing commitment to both the gaming community and custom PC enthusiasts said Adrian Young, marketing director for Akasa. Dual high powered graphics cards demand more and more power. PowerMax more than meets that demand. This PSU is manufactured from high grade components, and its designed to work 24/7, so it wont let you down. I think its the best on the market

    Importantly, both PowerMax 1000 and PowerMax 850 have extended main cables for use in the new extra tall cases. PowerMax has a low noise 135mm fan, is nVidia certified, has two 12V rails with 35 amps each rail, and can deliver a continuous 1000W or 850W supply of power.

    Couple 8800 Ultras in SLI and an overclocked QX6800 would do that imo. :p

    + 3 optical drives and 6 hard drives and you're getting close.

    You sure? Enermax claim their Galaxy can run quad core, quad gfx and 24 HDDs on a mere 850w.

    I was just throwing numbers out on top of his. In hindsight I should have used less specific numbering. Since hard drives take 1amp each and each Galaxy rail is pretty beasty it's do-able.
