The first ever Xigmatek power supply to hit [H]ard|OCP’s test bench is the NRP-HC1001‘ a 1000W PSU with 4 12V rails.  Unfortunately, it seems that Xigmatek spent more time and effort on the promotional material than they did on the PSU it’s self.  It did pass all of the tests that were thrown at it, but came in at the bottom when compared to other 1000W PSUs.  That is not necessarily a problem; it also comes in at the bottom when it comes to it’s purchase price.

“The “No Rules Power NRP-HC1001,” complies with the newest Intel standard ATX 12V V2.2 and SSI standard EPS 12V V2.91 simultaneously. So this PSU actually follows more rules than others? Should you care and does an extra standard give you anything at 1000 watts?”
