is the AX1200i any different internally to the AX1200?

4) Corsair is the best with customer support if you ever have any problems. Hands down
Silverstone make awesome power supplies as well but If you're spending that amount of money, i'd highly recomend something gold or platinum certified. Also the Strider series has had annoying capacitors on their PCIE cables that are hard to manage while sleeving (not sure if they still do this)
Overall, this size power supply will for right now be overkill. You will however have the benefit of haviong a beast PSU if ever you decide to go for a crazy multi card set up in the future.
1) They are all fully modular
2) I'm not getting sleeved cables, I'm sleeving them myself as I want two tone (what's the point of modding if your going to buy it anyway, right?)
3) I completely agree
4) yes, corsair george even said that If we have problems with RMA we can even PM him and He'll sort it out
can't get any better than that, so no worries if it fails, just hope it doesn't take the rest of the pc with it. Do you think the AX1200 would still hold up with a high end PC in 7 years? that is really my main concern as I want to keep it basically until the warranty is gone.
Just read some newegg feedback, almost everyone who RMA'd got refused so I can eliminate that silverstone PSU
Thanks for not questioning me, but getting straight to the point +rep

. It got a good review from JonnyGURU
and is a rebranded Super Flower unit. It's also significantly less expensive than its Corsair counterpart...
I'm not to keen on the LED fan though

Get a car that runs 100Mph and you'll still be good, heck even if it drives 80Mph it's still good, only the RPM is a bit higher than a car that can hit 100Mph
Same goes for PSU's
the reason I want the 200Mph car is I'm investing a lot of money in it and I want it to last as long as it possibly can and still be up there near the faster "cars" in 7 years time or so. (the end of warranty) wouldn't you?
