I don't really get the point of overclock mode personally.. why not just allow 1650W when a 230 VAC source is connected?

Still, this PSU looks awesome. Is 16x 6+2pin PCIe right? That's enough for 8 cards by itself, not counting the 6 pins..

The specs are pretty awesome themselves, but I actually like the 10 year warranty, and EVGA's EAR and step-up programs. Anyone that can really get good use out of this kind of hardware is going to put it through some heavy workload. Nice to see they are making sure the customer is going to be set for some time. And if they want in the future the next best thing, they can upgrade cheaper by trading in this one, I really, really like that part. More companies should do that. Although in my personal experience, I wouldn't need it, I keep older parts around as a just in case type thing.
