Default Thermaltake Thoughpower 1500 W Power Supply

Thermaltake Thoughpower 1500 W is probably the most power PC power supply in the world so powerful that it can't be sold in the USA, as it is over the maximum allowed power for household appliances set by the Underwriter Laboratories (UL) which is 1,300 W, by the way. Because of that, this model can only be found in Europe. The architecture used is really interesting: this power supply is in fact two completely independent 750 W power supplies inside the same housing. Besides its monstrous power capability which the manufacturer says can be delivered at 50 C with a peak power of 1,600 W , Thoughpower 1500 W has a modular cabling system with a total of eight power connectors for video cards and a 140-mm fan. In this article we will completely dissect this monster.

this PSU is certainly a big one. Maybe folding PCs that have 4+ 9800 GX2s will profit from this?

How much computing power can you cram into a single desktop PC? In our research on image reconstruction we often have to perform large-scale scientific computations, which can easily take weeks on a normal PC. To tackle this problem, we have developed a special PC that is capable of performing our computations just as fast as a cluster consisting of hundreds of PCs. Using this superPC, which consists mainly of gaming hardware and costs less than 4000 euro, we can now perform our three-dimensional reconstructions within a few hours: over 100 times as fast.

1500W is overkill though, even for a Quad 9800GX2 setup
no folding being done though :/
