The Cooler Master Real Power Pro 1250w sports three 20A 12V rails and three 28A 12V rails, which ought to satisfy even Quad CrossFire and triple SLI setups.   It also comes with a bottle opener key chain, hopefully for use after you've installed the PSU.  [H]ard|OCP found it to be a very quiet, stable and efficient PSU, with one issue that arises when the current dips under 100V AC, though many will never have to worry about that.

FSP has been making power supplies for other brands for a long time now, but have never really sold them by themselves.  The Everest 1010 PSU is a break from that tradition, and unsurprisingly it is a well executed kilowatt power supply.  It has plenty of 12V power, modular cabling and it was able to take what the Guru of 3D threw at it without displaying increased heat, or noise

As [H]ard|OCP rightly points out in their huge cooler roundup article, the CPU coolers of just a few years ago would feel quite inadequate next to the ones enthusiasts use today.  They would probably only feel comfortable around chipset coolers, something that didn't need to exist in the days of the K7.  Now though, coolers are huge, and the biggest and baddest are represented, and [H] shows you which are the best.
