[jonnyguru] Reviews - Corsair AX1200i 1200W - Page 12  

post #111 of 176
Since when was 80+ efficiency "platinum"? Or am i missing something like larger capacity coolers are less efficient?

I have a window on my case, and I cannot stand Corsair's logo, let alone their ginormous look-at-me sticker on their power supplies.

If Antec and Seasonic are doing it for the 1% of us out there, Corsair can do it also.
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?

I already posted this.

As a BUSINESS OWNER, I've had bad experiences with both products mentioned above...So, for me and those that choose to be my customers...Corsair is the only option...I'm not alone, either, in that sentiment...I'm sure you'll find more than that 1% that agree with me.

1% is not enough to pander to...There's no profit.

So, the if they do it, why aren't you doing it argument...Really doesn't apply here.

There's a very valid reason as to why the Corsair AX1200i blew the Seasonic and Antec PSU's out of the water in EVERY SINGLE REVIEW.

1% is not cost effective...Will never be cost effective...And the situation has already been rectified by Corsair (As of my conversation last night) so, every single "point" you've made thus-far is moot.

They're fixing the problem for the future and again, 1% just isn't worth it.

I dont know. I dont understand how its rated O.o

On Newegg, there are filtered PSUs like " 80+ Certified, 80+ bronze, 80+ gold, 80+ platinum".

You do realize that if there was a psu at 100% efficiency, that still falls under the category of 80+, right? the platinum is to describe the category above 80 to narrow down the efficiency range. Also,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/80_PLUS

Though looking at the efficiency graph on jonnyguru, the psu falls short of the platinum line at 115v and should really be a 'gold' psu but excels with 230v which is where it should be called a platinum psu.

1200Watt+ PSU's anyway are created for that niche market (enthusiasts with multiple GPU's). It should be supported from the beginning regardless if 4-Way SLI or QuadFire is a niche market or not. Again 1200Watt+ PSU's are created for a market of users that use hardware above and beyond the normal computer user.....that's the purpose of these PSU's to begin with.

Being a business owner or Vendor you should be well aware of what market 1200+ watt PSU's are aimed at.

EDIT: Notice how he seems to come across as if his conversation was the influencing factor in Corsair decision to remedy the situation. Well that's how it came across from my perspective rolleyes.gif

That's so interesting. Thanks.

Edit: that came across as being sarcastic, but it wasn't. I thought that the "80+" referred to the fact that it was between 80 and 90% efficient.

Multiple GPU's does not = 4.

While I do agree that there was an oversight in regards to the cables...Look at how fast and easily it was resolved.

Again, there are reasons (hardware wise) as to why this CPU is the best on the market, regardless of it's current output.

If you have Quad-SLI, there are solutions available that Corsair has made readily available...For FREE.

Ultimately, the answer is very simple...If you can't use the PSU to it's fullest extent, don't buy it.

BTW, you'll come to find that a tremendous amount of people actually own this PSU that ONLY Sli...Anything above SLI right now, is a niche market and thus, 1%...
post #120 of 176
Anyone know if the AX1200i cables are similar to the AX1200 cables?

I had my AX1200 cables sleeved, and sold off the PSU without cables.
