CoolMax CTG-1000 1000W ATX Power Supply
August 24, 2006

For many years a single processor and a single video card inside your computer would be typical, so something like a 500W power supply might be more than sufficient. Today's systems can include multiple processors, with multiple cores, and you can have a video card with multiple GPUs and even run multiple video cards. To run these monster systems you need a bigger power supply.

CoolMax is one of a few manufacturers that has introduced a 1000W power supply, and they have shipped their CTG-1000 to us for review. More power does not necessarily mean it is a better power supply, so let's take a look at this monster power supply and see if it can provide your system with clean and stable power.

Before jumping into the review, let's take a look at some published data on the company and the CTG-1000 1000W ATX Power Supply taken from the CoolMax USA website.

CoolMax was founded in 1992, with a goal to provide cooling solutions for using AC and DC fans. Since then they have begun to diversify and now have a vast line-up of product that include external enclosures for hard drives, network storage, power supplies, and cases.
