Although this particular PSU claims that it can handle 1000W of power, NZXT is adamant that this is continuous load - not merely peak load like many other companies have rated their PSUs in the past.  If you do the math on this PSU you'll see that the 3.3v and 5v lines actually total 199.2W - not the mere 150W that they are rated.  Also the +12v line is very large at 83A which totals 996W alone - almost the rated wattage of the entire PSU.  The -12v and +5vsb ratings are bang on.  If you add all of these up, you get 1216.2W.  NZXT is being pretty conservative with their 1000W rating.
