The Chieftec APS-1000C power supply has a maximum wattage output of 1000W. This should be enough to run multiple of even the most demanding of graphics cards with SLI or Crossfire, although it is worth double-checking if purchasing a particularly power-hungry graphics card setup. Remember that a higher PSU capacity does not necessarily equate to a higher wattage output and a more expensive electricity bill. In fact, you may find that a higher capacity PSU will function more efficiently than a lower capacity PSU because it is dealing with a lower percentage of its maximum load - that is, it is not being stressed to the same extent.
The Chieftec APS-1000C has an 80 Plus rating of Bronze. This means the PSU operates at average efficiency levels of at least 82%, 85%, and 82% for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20% respectively. Bronze is the fourth-best 80 Plus certificate available, and as such the Chieftec APS-1000C is very efficient and is a decent PSU choice. The actual efficiencies for this PSU are 84.17%, 86.91%, and 84.68%, for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%.
The dimensions of the Chieftec APS-1000C (LxWxH) are 15.5cm x 15cm x 8.6cm. Make sure to compare these measurements against the case you desire if planning on using it in a build.
The Chieftec APS-1000C is modular, meaning that cables can be taken out and connected back in as necessary. This can make cable management much easier, leading to a less chaotic build, and better airflow.
The Chieftec APS-1000C is designed for low volumes, meaning that its constant drone while your PC is on would be less noticeable - ideal for those that prefer silent environments.
