Which 1kW PSU?
Im looking at picking up a new PSU in the 1kW range and have it narrowed down to these 3:
Silverstone OP1000 Single 12V @ 80A
Coolermaster RealPower M1000 6 virtual x 12V @ 108A
OCZ GameXStream 1010W 4 virtual x 12V @ 70A
My preference is leaning towards the OP1000 but I wanted some opinions before I go ahead and buy one

Maybe check out http://www.bjorn3d.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7457
multiple rail probably more stable power if you're not oc'ing too much but for overclocking without risk of overloading one of the multiple lower amped +12v rails, single big fat amped +12v rail better.
But alot of multiple rail psu's are in fact reality a single rail in how they're designed/work.
Out of the 3 above, OP1000 would be my choice right now.

Re: Which 1kW PSU?
This is a frequent question on all the computer BBS
10 people will give you ten dif answers.
As far as your three:
George (the owner of this forum) likes the SS 1000
Of the 1010W OCZ, I think you mean the ProXStream, not the "GameXStream". They also have a 900W modular now.
On the CoolerMaster, I am now looking for one for myself (cant find it in the USA even tho its been around a while now), but beware there are two - the ESBA (MODULAR and higher Amps) and the EMBA - which is not modular
I simply dont buy PSU that arent modular any more, nor one that has less than a 120mm fan - for noise control, nor any that are huge - like the Galaxy.
CM is the quietest, but most expensive. OCZ Pro is rock stable, but noisy at high loads and non modular.
Just my .02 - heh
