CORSAIR AX1200i 1200W Power Supply Reviews

Best PSU for Cost/Performance, IMO.

Posted

Pros: Great PSU, Software is easy to monitor, excellent CS from Corsair.

Cons: Cables not included for Quad SLI

I run 2 of these in my Quad-SLI rig. 0 coil whine... Software has worked well for me, not without "some" problems but, not a bad experience, either. When I called in about my issues (I purchased these on day 1 of launch...The moment they were put up) I was forwarded to the gentleman that wrote the software and spoke about my issues -- I was glad to see them fixed in a later "update". I love these power supplies and would recommend them to absolutely anyone.

In my case, none whatsoever. I've seen a lot of reports of loud coil whine from these. Mine does coil whine, and it's very irritating, however I suspect I have one of the quieter ones (or my hearing at the high end of the spectrum is less sensitive than some peoples) because it is generally tolerable as long as the side is on the case, however I brought it partially because it should be very quiet (at low loads, the fan doesn't run at all), so it's a shame when...

Good Hardware..

Pros: Nice power

Cons: bad software

This is a very strong power supply, and quiet. Probably only of the best out there. One of the reasons I purchased it was the corsair link wattage monitoring software. On most systems, this probably works without too much issue, however, on X79 chipsets firmware 2.2 doesn't work well with RSTe 3.5 and higher. Firmware 2.1.7 and below do work ok with RSTe 3.0 and similar RSTe drivers. Pros Completely Modular Silent mode when no load Virtual Multi-Rail via Software Cables are ample Ideal for Quad SLI Cons Extremely long Expensive Software Issues
