After some SERIOUS power for your kickarse new rig? Where the sky's the limit, Silverstone are doing their best to reach it with their new monster PSU, the 1kW Olympia.

In terms of specs, this thing is pretty damn meaty with an intelligent fan controller for quiet operation (25 dBA @300W or below, 42dBA@ 1000W), a massive single 80A(88A peak) +12V rail and 1100W peak power output. The Olympia OP1000 features 4x PCI-E 6pin connectors, dual 8pin connectors, six Serial ATA connectors, Active PFC and support for ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS 12V.

More info at Techpowerup, and the official product page folks.

For SilverStone, reaching the 1000 watt milestone is another great opportunity to introduce a new direction for performance enthusiast power supplies. The Olympia OP1000 was built to withstand enormous loading requirements of high-end industrial server PCs at above average temperature of 50°C so its ability is unmatched by ordinary power supplies. However, to make this power supply more usable to more enthusiasts, SilverStone engineers altered several parameters such as inclusion of intelligent fan controller that adjust fan speed to run quietly at low to medium load and conversion to a single +12V rail. If the goal is to build a future proof multi-core CPU and GPU system, the OP1000 is a must have with its 80A ( 88A peak) +12V single rail and 1100W peak power output.
