I think it goes without saying that many users would be interested in furthering the line of KingPin products. My question is, would a KingPin power supply ever be considered?

    EVGA already has a kingpin psu, but it isn’t called kingpin...

    I appreciate the link, though I wasn't just after capacity. KingPin products consistently over-deliver on quality and reliability, as is required for pushing a system past established norms. I was hoping for a completely custom and high quality power supply that didn't cut any corners, with features most people haven't considered or even needed. I wouldn't have the knowledge to understand if this is even a good idea, so I leave that in your capable hands. Thanks.
     
    Any thoughts?

    I understand. Cutting corners on a 2000w psu wouldn't be smart. The 2000w psu should already be built like a tank.

    Real talk, anything over 1300W on a PSU, you're being risky if your house is wired standardly.  Technically speaking I think most houses are wired for 1600W per plug or something thereabouts, BUT you have to keep in mind if a PSU is supply 1600W of power it's pulling more than 1600W from the plug... so yeah.

    When last I was running a multi-PSU system (1250W & an 850W), I made sure they were plugged in to different "circuits" in the house to be on the safe side, with a giganto-gauge extension cord... of course, you can't do that if it's only one PSU.
     
    If you really want to go all out, you can always find a local electrician that doesn't overcharge out the wazoo & have them add a dedicated breaker to your box that's specifically for your computer, wire it to the room it's in, and make sure it's the proper wire gauge to handle 2K+ watts - then you don't have to worry about fire hazard anymore.  I did this for my window A/C unit because it was tripping the breaker on the room it is in whenever the PC was active & drawing heavy and the A/C kicked on.  Haven't had a problem since.  But I'm also in a "manufactured home" so doing the wiring was a bit easier than it would be in a full on house.

    Back when I was considering LN2 overclocking (found out that the local LN2 source wants WAY too much money for a 50l dewar) I added 4 circuits into one of my rooms that are dedicated to being able to fully support a high power draw without causing any issues.

    Oh most definitely. Ash Thorp (designer) built a crazy 3D rig a while back and mentioned doing just that for his new home.

    15 amp breaker, 120 volt should be good for 1800 watts.  But that is total power.  If you had anything else on the circuit like your monitor, lights, internet router, it's all going to pull from that total.  1600 watt is doable, but I wouldn't put anything else on that circuit.  Newer house might have a 20 amp breaker and that would give you more head room, but it really depends on how the house is wired.  Better be safe than sorry.  
     
    I think it would be hard to differentiate a Kingpin PSU from any other High-end PSU.  Maybe if it had voltage or power monitoring?
