The E-Power EP-2KW 2000W power supply is an awesome piece of machinery, I do wish that the correct tools to test this power supply were available to put it through its paces, but unless you are looking to run a fully decked out Skulltrail with quad graphics, and pelt cooled the CPU’s and GPU’s you shouldn’t have a problem hitting the limit of what this power supply has to offer. Currently they are being built to order and quality tested before shipping. Top Power, E-Power’s parent company, is well know for producing high quality power supplies so this is no different. The only caveat being is the size of the unit, and the length of the cables from the power supply to the back of the case. With a mid tower there was just enough length in the cables to have it comfortable situated, a full tower may have some problems with the length. Currently this is about as future proof of a power supply to get that should have no problems what-so-ever running today’s and tomorrow’s hardest of hardcore machines.
While $699 may be a steep price to pay for a power supply, the average price for 1000W-1300W currently is in the $300-400 range. This is a high end enthusiast product that should give you a good return on investment with longevity. Instead of buying a 1000W+ power supply now for $200-300, and another 1500W-2000W power supply in the future when required, the hit now will save you in the long run.
