Well at least it would be the last PSU you would ever buy...

Take a look at the manufacturer's specifications for the power supply. It uses a 20A plug, which looks like -| |, compared to a 15A receptacle which looks like | |. Using a 15A receptacle this thing will only pump out 1,281.6W (continuous) without tripping the circuit breaker or ruining the receptacle.

It could easily trip a breaker before even hitting what it could at peak. Some well built 750w power supplies will trip breakers under load.

I really don't understand who needs 1600w out of their computer (unless it is a business application)

Anyone still running a GTX 480 would need this.

Probably sounds like a nuclear reactor when it's fired up....
