Rosewill Unleashes Monstrous HERCULES 1600W PSU
 
For any power-hungry users who have ever had any concerns about being able to support that extra bit of hardware, your prayers have been answered.

The gods up on Mount Rosewill have sent their half mortal son to us, and he packs some serious wattage. 1600W of power, a 135mm silent fan on top, 16 6+2 pin PCI-E connectors, and an efficiency rating of 89% means this beast will feed that power hungry SLI or Crossfire setup you’ve been working on. Its a little larger than most power supplies, measuring 5.9″ x 3.4″ x 9.5″ but thats a small price to pay for the power, and the semi-modular unit even comes packaged in a nice silver hard case.

Hopefully still superflower, though I can't recall SF having a beast that big in there suite of units.

I love how the toggle switch is protected in the back, reminds me of the toggles on warships :)

I always wonder how companies like Antec, Corsair, etc. feel about competing with NewEgg's house brand at NewEgg... I know I wouldn't like it if I were in their shoes.

I would be less than happy considering I always find newegg's PSU's to be overpriced (except for rosewill conveniently). At the end of the day what can you do about it though? Newegg is a big order so it isn't like they are going to deny them.

Eh, its not the first time. TD does it as well, but I find more often then not Ultra is outsold even at lower price points. The main difference is, as of late Rosewill has chosen remarkable Units for there OEM's where, Ultra, having not learned from Jonny Guru's teachings when he was there (Original LSP and X3 series) suck as of late.

Really depends. People do a lot of research, and although good units the CS from the companies that ply there goods at the Egg outstrips what Rosewill and the egg have as a whole. And service sells these days so much more.
Besides, its in Eggs best interests to keep inventory on such items.

Do you think they have choice ? They can't afford to not distribute true New Egg
