At first glance the Quattro 1,000W power supply appears almost identical to the Quattro 850W unit but close inspection reveals several components have been changed to support the higher output.  For example the primary capacitor in the Quattro 850W is rated at 470uF, 400V, 105°C while the Hitachi cap on the primary of the Quattro 1kW unit is rated at 560uF, 450V, 105°C.

The secondary side of Quattro 1kW PSU features all Teapo caps rated for 105°C.  A small, secondary PCB attached to the top of one of the heatsinks further handles +12V distribution and fan speed control.
