Bolt on a garrett, dump valve, lets swap out the cams, rad, zorst etc and we'll get 2000w out of it

(Goes to read review)

Rumour has it that when Antec set about designing the Quattro, they enlisted help from a group of teenagers found performing hand-brake turns in their local supermarket car park on a Friday night!

Silly me but if a PS says 1000watts it should put out 1000 watts in the real world.

It probably will, that was just due to our load tester not being able to reach 1000w...yet

Yeah, 919w is about as close as we can get to 1000w, after that the load tester hits about 1100w.
