I'll pass, thank you very much. EVGA will be releasing the much anticipated SuperNOVA 1600 T2 very soon. A 90 Plus Titanium 1600 Watt power supply is for the most uber of systems and I plan to get one the minute they go up for sale!

Titanium is 220v usually.

Its very difficult to do it at 110v, and would come with a whopping price tag if they did.

No. It's not. These are world power supplies and the key to that is actually the active PFC. The better the PFC is, then the better the power conversion. Most PFC's require a $5 retail chip. If you go with the new cutting edge ones: they're expensive, but darn impressive.

The only problem you'll ever run into with a 120v line is that it still carries just 15-20A. While the 230V lines will carry the same 15-20A (meaning there is twice the power in the line).

please link to a power supply that is 80+ titanium rated at 110v.

Ive never seen one.

There are several at 220

Titanium requires additional design circuitry as there is an additional requirement for efficiency at 10% as well as improved efficiencies at the other load levels.

Hey.That_Dude

Good lord get your voltages right.

Please scroll down and observe the GREATER THAN 90% EFFICIENCY ON BOTH VOLTAGE INPUTS, which exceeds Titanium's minimum required efficiency, through the entire load, while meeting all of the other efficiency levels with relative ease.

But, I mean, please continue to argue with the EE who's looked into making their own SMPS for very specialized needs and took 3 seconds out of their day to type 80+ Titanium, scroll to the first result in Google, scroll down the tech page and reach the pretty chart that shows you what you "couldn't find."

The Mac

umm....i have an EE degree so i know what im talking about.

That particular PS has been certified as Titanium, but at all input ranges?

i see no proof..

again, its exceedingly difficult to get titanium certification at 110v.

The margin of error is much smaller than at 220v

Hey.That_Dude

You didn't scroll down and look at the graph did you? Can't cure lazy, unfortunately.

EE with MAC in the name.... so sad.

Never said it was easy to get certification at 120. I merely proved the proof you asked for (which you couldn't be bothered to scroll down to).

avatar

The Mac

Yes, i saw the graph.

But that doesnt tell me what i want to know.

One of the requirements for titanium is 90+ efficiancy at 10% load.

That is what im concerned with.

avatar

Hey.That_Dude

look at the bottom of the graph again... you might see a 10% load marking if you look closely.

avatar

The Mac

i must be blind, i dont see it

i a 192w watt load which is over 10%

1) Go to the tab that says Tech specs
2) Scroll down to the second to last graph labeled "AX1500i Efficiency"
3) Observe the two curves drawn for the two most common input voltages
4) Check Titanium specs and see that the 115Vrms does actually meet and exceed all of those requirements (even if barely)

IDK where you're looking, but hopefully you can find it with this guide.

avatar

The Mac

aha! i didnt see the tabs.

ok, i see it complies.

now, how much is it going to be?

the 220v versions are not cheap.

avatar

Hey.That_Dude

Part of the conversation we just had, was on how I'm not Google... IDK where you live, where you want to buy it from, or anything else about that process for you.

In short: ASK GOOGLE.

The Mac

It was rhetorical...

Good stuff. Love me some 10 year warranty. I think they're just counting on people losing their proof of purchase or account information before they eventually have to use the warranty. (10 years is a long-ass time)

Policy has changed and the warranty is tied to the product. All you need to do for the 10 year warranty is register on the website. If you lose your credentials for the account, it has a password recovery option like any other site.

Basically if you buy this, you're covered.

That's what I mean, account information. Like if you can't remember your username OR password.

I miss the lifetime warranties EVGA used to provide for their AR model cards.
