Upgrading Power Supply - ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII RANGER

Hello! I'm looking to upgrade my Power Supply. My current motherboard is the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII RANGER.

Granted, I haven't purchased a new Power Supply in about 5 years. Does anyone have any recommendations for a PSU of 1,000W that'd be compatible with my motherboard?

I tried browsing through Newegg, and there are many varieties of PSU's. I'm assuming the "type" I want is an ATX PSU given my MOBO is ATX.

Let me know your thoughts!

  1. Why do you need 1000 watts? Thats excessive except for the most crazy setups.

    Whats the rest of your system specs?
  2. My current setup entails two cards in SLI, as well as two monitors, a potential sound card purchase, three hard drives, two SSD's, and an Intel i7-6700k Processor.

    I'd like a 1,000W to be future proof for various components. I'm running a 850w currently, and simply want to upgrade/update it.

    Ok that makes sense (sorry to as but you would be surprised how many folks think they need 1000w for something nothing near that).

    I stand by EVGA for large PSU's, the 1000G2 is used by many of our members and will work well for you:

  4. the EVGA Supernova G2 / P2 is a good series
    the SuperFlower Leadex Gold/Platinum on which it's based on is fine as well and sometimes cheaper
    Corsair Hx/Ax/Rmx seeries would do fine as well (Ax being a bit better than the others)
    if you want complete overkill, the new Seasonic Prime Platinum series is very nice
