Do you need a 1000 W power supply to run your PC? Probably not, even if you did your best and paired the best CPU to play with the best graphics card money. But “wanting” and “needing” are two different things, and if it is to want a power supply with power masses at your disposal, this is the deal that needs to be overcome right now.
Newegg sells Super Flower’s 1000 Flower Edition Leadex Platinum main supply for $ 199.99, with a $ 249.99 discount. There is also a $ 10 discount coupon code that you can apply at the time of payment (93XRK82), which brings the price down to $ 189.99. This is as low as you can expect to pay for quality power in this power range.

You probably don’t need 1000 W, but at that price it’s not much more than going with a quality unit with less power. We also dig that comes with flat ribbon cables. Use the coupon code 93XRK82 at the checkout to get the full discount.
Super Flower is one of the premium brands in the food space and that matters: generic labels are usually of lower quality and less reliable in my experience. I stopped using cheap PSUs a long time ago when one of the Molex connectors started emitting smoke. Luckily, I didn’t lose any hardware (other than the PSU trash can), but the lesson learned.
It is a fully modular PSU, ideal for cable management; just plug in the cables you are actually using and save the rest, out of your box. And the accompanying cables are also made of flat tape.
It is also an 80 Plus Platinum unit. This is the second highest level of 80 Plus efficiency, just behind 80 Plus Titanium, and essentially means that very little energy is consumed as heat.
The icing on the cake is the 10-year warranty. It is very likely that this PSU will survive any computer you put it on and if not, you will be covered by Super Flower anyway.
