[jonnyguru] Reviews - Corsair AX1200i 1200W - Page 11  

post #101 of 176
Makes me excited to see what I can do with some sleeving on this bad boy. Although I am curious on how the 24pin pinout and if there is double wires.

In anycase I will find out soon as Corsair has been so kind to sponsor me one. Keep up the good work George. =)

However, anything is possible, and I'll keep it in mind that it has been requested. I know this sounds bad, but I'm in charge of ever case, power supply, CPU cooler, fan, and all the Corsair Link products that come out of Corsair. I'm the PM for all of those. As you can imagine I get kind of swamped. And sometimes, little things I'd like to do just don't justify the time spent. I also have an 18 month old daughter and another kid on the way, so at some point I like to go home and play with her an hour or two before she goes to bed.
Then at night I get back on these forums and read more posts and comments.
I can't always go back and make products better retroactively, but I can incorporate a lot of things into newer products. A lot of you guys' opinions are already on my roadmap.
Just keep in mind my roadmap is about 3 years long.

It would make my case dreams come true if something like a E-ATX version of the 550D was on that roadmap smile.gif.

you could use the 650D. E-ATX boards are not officially supported, but they fit well enough in that and the 600T. the 550D is the 500R with a different (better imo) exterior and noise cancelling foam.

Relax man.

CorsairGeorge : ''Because I screwed up.''

It was a legitimate question. I know I can order an adapter, but my question was: why do we have to order an adapter?. It should have been there in the first place.

CorsairGeorge just answered my question. The existence of an adaptor didn't answer my question.

I have over 30 feet of tubing, 5 liters of water, 4 pumps MCP655, 9 radiators, 32 fans in my system. I don't need more adaptors, believe me. smile.gif

I will wait to buy a new PSU with everything I need already on it. My money. My choice. smile.gif

...You do realize how illogical your statement is, in terms of cost, right?

About 1% of the total computer market uses quad-sli...That's right, 1%...

Why would you supply a product to every single user when only 1% of the market actually has a demand for that product?

In Tri-SLI with this product, there is an issue but, it's being addressed.

Plus, you don't have to order it...You call them and they send it, free of charge.

Regardless of how you view the enthusiast market, the facts are the facts and supplying the adapter to every single user is incredibly noneffective.

More like 0.01% I bet.
Regular people wouldn't buy this PSU either, though. So yeah, I guess around 1% of people who buy this PSU might power Quad GPU...

Why do you even post, knowing that both Antec and Seasonic are both doing 1200W PSUs WITH 8X 6+2 PCIe cables for the 1% out there? Ask Antec and Seasonic WHY they are doing it, not me. smile.gif I didn't made that ''illogical'' decision (in terms of cost, like you said), Antec and Seasonic did it.

The facts are the facts.

If Antec and Seasonic are doing it for the 1% of us out there, Corsair can do it also. If you do a 1200w PSU, do it properly... like your direct competitors. smile.gif

I'm totally logical, you are not. Antec and Seasonic, both competitors of Corsair, are doing 1200w PSUs with 8X 6+2 PCIe connectors, competing with the AX1200i...

So if it was not ''logical'' for Corsair to do it, how can you logically explain the fact that Antec and Seasonic ARE doing 1200w PSUs with 8X 6+2 connectors?

1200w PSUs are already a niche market. Look at another product for exemple. The Asus RIVE. LN2 switch and sub-zero sensors on that very popular board, while only probably that 0.00001% of overclockers out there are using LN2... Is it ''logical''? It seems to be for Asus. smile.gif But they are selling ALOT of RIVE, and 99.99% are NOT using the LN2 switch and sub-zero sensors...

Same thing. Niche product for a niche market. smile.gif So when you do one, do it properly, like your competitors...
