Rosewill is offering $25 back on $200 purchase.

I was looking for a new mining rig PSU for some VEGA Cards and this one has 8 PCI-e connectors (most have 4-6). It is Gold certified, not platinum.

I added a set of 3 case fans for $14 to get over the limit.

Ebay also has 10% ebay bucks when purchased through the app.

You could also just use 2 or 3 cheaper PSUs

I agree.

with two 800 or 850 watt PSU you'll get 12 PCI-E connectors (not 8) and you'll get double the amount of 4pin and sata, and you'll have a lesser load on each PSU.
Then just get one of theses adapters and your golden. Remember your typical 15 AMP circuit is good for peak of like 1880 watts and max continuous of 1440 watts. So realistically even two 750 watt PSU's would max out a 15 amp circuit.

Much cheaper to buy two smaller PSU's than to buy one big one.
You just need a connector piece if you want them both to power on and off at the same time.

or on amazon if that's your preference:

That coolmax you linked is not a better brand.

The thermaltake model probably is.

JohnnyGuru reviewed the 750 watt Rosewill Photon PSU here and gave it a 79% score. Good PSU, and works fine, but not the best tier.

agree on the 2 ps solution. Some people just don't want it or want to cram it into a tiny mini ITX case so you need it in a single ps. But for me I'll leave the PS on the ground if I can save $100.
