SOLVED - Building a dual xeon 2600 and I will need 2x8pin connector onto the motherboard. All standard psu's have 1x8pin (or split 4+4). Unless I go through ALL the psu listed here and click on all links I just dunno where to start to find such a PSU.
Alright this one is sloved! I have decided to go with EVGA 1000W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply because it has the power to grow and is fully modular. The server may or may not receieve Xeon Phi Coprocessor in the future and this means I have to reserve a hefty wattage for that. The beefier Phi cards could draw up to 300w if I read correctly. In the case we add Phi I doubt it'll be the top-end card, so more likely a 225w peak card... or 2. Let's hope by the time we add some coprocessors they will be less power hungry.
