Hey guys, i have decided to no longer wait for the 790 and just pull the trigger with a soon to be purchase. I am very grateful to say money is not a problem. I recently bought a Raidmax 1000w gold efficiency psu and was hoping that it would be enough to keep an Sli evga 780ti dual classified and i7 4770k with enough room. Thank you so much everyone

Raidmax are very very poor power supplies send it back.

I wouldn't trust my build to a low quality power supply.

I read many reviews on it as its a newer model raidmax and all of them said it performs very well at a great price which was why I purchased it. If I do sli the 780tis will the 1000w still be enough even if it is a different psu?

The 1 year warranty tells you that it's a piece of junk.

Here's a review conclusion.

The Bottom Line

The Raidmax RX-1000AE is quite the contradiction and this results in a passing, but not exactly impressive, unit. There were no tests in which this unit failed, but that does not necessarily make its performance outstanding. Indeed, when compared to its marketing this unit was sorely lacking on the efficiency front and the 1 year warranty support for this unit is laughable. On top of that, the voltage regulation was not great and the unit was a bit noisier in the upper 20% of its output than we have seen from a number of other units in this DC output capacity range. However, all is not lost as this unit did post significant improvements over the previous unit based on this basic design from Andyson we reviewed when it comes to DC Output Quality, the general build quality is good, and at $149.99 this unit represents the one of the cheapest 1000W units on the market today that has passed our testing. As such, on a strictly dollar based value assessment, this unit is a good buy so long as users are only looking for a power supply that will provides 1000 watts of power inside of the ATX12v specification limits and nothing more. Raidmax has on its hands a passing first offering, now hopefully Raidmax will take this unit and build upon this to develop some truly excellent products. And someone needs to do something about the fictitious 80Plus efficiency numbers that are not represented properly in the retail product.

Still seems to be a decent PSU for the money which was why I purchased it. Aside from its quality not being the best would 2 Evga 780tis dual classified in sli be fine with this psu? Thank you for all the responses btw!!

It has 4 - 12 volt rails with 36 amps so it should be able to , but I wouldn't trust with my components.
