AnandTech published a review of a customized Turbo Cool 860W power supply from PC Power & Cooling:
A short while ago, PC Power & Cooling (PCP&C) revealed its latest addition to their portfolio: the Turbo Cool 860W. It does not use the same topology as the 1000W and 1200W power supplies from the same series, which we will see later when we open the unit up. Today we will be looking at a special unit we received from PCP&C. The company was nice enough to build a special edition PSU that includes extra cable harnesses and connectors - all according to our specifications. Our unit is ready for Triple-SLI with six 6-pin PEG connectors, three of which also perform double duty as 8-pin PEG connectors. On top of that, we asked for 15 SATA connectors to power up some special tests we will be working on this year.
This PSU features an excellent build quality and has a very high efficiency of up to 88% at 230VAC.

Beautiful specs, but too noisy. That's acceptable for its intended market, but too bad for enthusiasts looking for these specs, but in a quiet form factor.

And given the adjustable currents, I'm fairly certain this was meant for enthusiasts as much as server environments.
