ASUS haven't put out a PSU in quite some time; which changed at CES when they showed off the 1200W ROG THOR PSU at their booth. There is a lot to this PSU, from an OLED on the side which will display how much wattage is currently being drawn from it to a the huge assortment of power cables. As you can see on the back, there are a dozen SATA power connectors in addition to eight 6+2 PCIe power connectors and extra 12V for your motherboard. On the other hand, it is priced at over $300!
If the sticker shock hasn't finished you off, [H]ard|OCP put it to the test, and it did very well.
"ASUS is getting back into the computer power supply game in a big way. Today we have the Republic of Gamers Thor 1200 that promises to allow you to "HARNESS THUNDER." This is a massive 1200 watt PSU and the first thing that will catch your eye is the OLED panel that will tell you just how much power your a using at the moment. "
