Warning obvious thing (Click to show)
]
If your system only has one video card you're wasting money you dont need a PSU in this wattage range so dont bother to look here for that

First off before i begin no i have not reviewed any of these units nor do i claim any credit for it, Its all done by Techpowerup so all credit goes to them. Since Techpowerup does not have reviews for every single 1000 watts PSU i can only pick the ones they have reviewed which means that some models are not here and a model is not bad because its not here

So lets be about it and start off with the Be Quiet Power Zone

Pictures of the platform (Click to show)





The fan is a 135 mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing Fan (SilentWings). The high quality cooling fan is provided by be quiet! and belongs to the SilentWings series. Its model number is BQ SIW3-13525-HHF-29 (12 V, 1 A, 2900 RPM max), and we strongly believe it to be too powerful and noisy for the needs of this PSU. The fan controller circuit fortunately restricts its maximum rotational speed to 2500 RPM, and it generally rotates the fan at low enough speeds for a quiet, not whisper quiet, operation.

The fan is a 135 mm FDB Fan (MGA13512XF-025). The fan is of high quality since it uses a Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB). These bearings offer a much longer lifetime even compared to ball-bearing ones and do, on top of that, produce less noise. The fan is made by Protechnic, one of the best fan manufacturers, and its model number is MGA13512XF-025. CM made, in our humble opinion, an excellent choice with this fan, showing the competition that they don't play around with this PSU, but want to jet directly to the top of the corresponding category. It is really sad to see high-performance, ultra-expensive PSUs with, from time to time, cheap fans instead of FDB ones.

The fan has Cooler Master's logo on it, but it's made by Young Lin Tech and its model number is DFS132512H (12V, 3W, 1700RPM, 36.28dBA, 91.16CFM). At normal RPMs it is quiet but at full speed it's noisy despite the only 36.28 dBA that its characteristics state.

The fan is a 140 mm Double Ball-Bearing Fan (HA1425M12B-Z). The cooling fan is equipped with double ball-bearings and is made by Hong Hua. Its model number is HA1425M12B-Z, and it is rated for 0.36A at 12 V. The fan can achieve 1600 RPM with the aformentioned power input, but the fan controller circuit restricts its full speed to around 1485 RPM. Only with a 110% load (1100 W) and at 46°C ambient did we manage to make it spin at 1550 RPM, which is still lower than its maximum-rated speed.

The fan is a 140 mm Double Ball-Bearing Fan (HA1425M12B-Z). The cooling fan is the same as in the G2-1000. It is equipped with double ball-bearings and is made by Hong Hua. Its model number is HA1425M12B-Z, and it is rated for 0.36A at 12 V. This fan can achieve 1600 RPM at full speed, but it will only engage once things get really hot if you pick ECO Mode (semi-passive operation). Speed is only rarely increased while the unit is operating normally, even under tough conditions.

The fan used is a 120 mm Double Ball-Bearing Fan (9S1212H403) The cooling fan's model number is 9S1212H403, and it is by Sanyo Denki. It uses a pair of ball-bearings, which should have it last a long time (40,000 hours according to its manufacturer, at 40°C and full speed). Unfortunately, it is especially noisy at high speeds. We believe Seasonic should use a quieter FDB fan instead.

The fan is a 120 mm Double Ball-Bearing Fan with Hybrid Silent Fan Control. The cooling fan, a San Ace 120, is provided by Sanyo Denki and its model number is 9S1212F404. At full speed it's noisy but in this unit most of the times it will work at middle-low RPMs and if you choose Hybrid operation then it won't work at all at low loads. The same fan is used in all X series PSUs (except the two fanless models of course!)

The fan is a 120 mm Double Ball-Bearing Fan (9S1212H403), The cooling fan with model number 9S1212H403 is by Sanyo Denki. We couldn't dig up any detailed information on this particular fan so we had to ask Seasonic about it and the informed us that it uses a double ball-bearings and its lifetime may look low on papers but the 40,000 hours are for 100% load at 40°C ambient or for 80% load at 50°C. Most of you and us would prefer however an FDB fan with a larger diameter instead. Seasonic will hopefully rethink their fan choice in the near future. These Sanyo Denki fans may be quality products, but they are noisy because they have to rotate at higher speeds to efficiently remove the heat. A 140 mm fan would provide just as much airflow at lower speeds, which reduce noise output significantly.

Next is the Seasonic Snow Silent

Pictures of the platform (Click to show)




The fan is a 120 mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing Fan (HA1225H12F-Z), The second and most important difference between the Snow Silent edition and the SS-1050XP3 is the fan. While the latter uses a plain double ball-bearing fan, the Snow Silent comes equipped with a fluid dynamic bearing fan of good quality. These bearings (FDB) last much longer than other types and are able to offer a quiet operation for longer. You see, as time passes by, ball-bearings inevitably wear off, which will affect noise output significantly. Seasonic says such not to happen with fluid dynamic bearings, and we have absolutely no reason not to believe them.

The cooling fan only carries SF's logo, but we are pretty sure that it is the same as in EVGA's unit, so its model number is HA1425M12B-Z, made by Hong Hua. It is equipped with double ball-bearings and is rated for 0.36A at 12 V. This fan can achieve 1600 RPM, but the fan-control circuit keeps it at much lower speeds most of the time. Also, it will rarely operate under normal conditions if you pick the semi-passive option.

The model number of the fan is AFB1312M (12V, 0.38A) and it is manufactured in China. Thanks to the relaxed program of its controller it keeps a low speed at lower loads/ambient and only if you stress the PSU really hard it significantly increases its speed, however, without creating an annoyingly loud noise. Nevertheless most of the time it will work silently.

The fan uses a highly relaxed fan profile, and there is also a semi-passive mode that lasts fairly long under normal operating conditions. It, as such, definitely won't produce a whole lot of noise wile operating under normal conditions.

It is a pretty strong fan for even a unit of this capacity. Thankfully, there is a semi-passive mode, so those who want an inaudible operation can have it; that is, at light loads and under normal operating temperatures.

The fan used is a 135 mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing Fan (RL4Z S1352512H) The fan is by Globe Fan and the sticker on it reads "Fluid Dynamic Bearing" in large letter. According to its model number it should be a plain sleeve-bearing fan but indeed it uses a Fluid Dynamic Bearing. Apparently Globe Fan made some changes internally and they just didn't change the model number on the sticker. From the moment the fan is a true FDB one this isn't of high importance, although it can easily bring confusion to reviewers (including us of course). This is a medium-speed fan that runs a pretty aggressive fan profile.

According to a spec sheet we found on Young Lin Tech's official site this fan is equipped with a plain sleeve bearing and not with a Hydro Dynamic one. On the contrary CM states that HDB is used, so we had to clear this up by cracking open the fan. In the end we discovered that the fan uses neither sleeve bearing nor HDB. The kind of bearing it uses is called Hysint bearing and is something in between. It provides longer lifespan and lower noise than sleeve bearing but it can't be compared with HDB/FDB. In the photos above notice the vertical V-shaped cutouts on the shaft of the fan. These curves pump the oil up and down on the bearing while the fan spins reducing friction. We contacted CM of course about this issue and they informed us that due to a patent on HDB/FDB each vendor has similar solutions with custom names, however there are also some differences in the design too.

Pictures of the platform (Click to show)





The fan used is a 140 mm Sleeve Bearing Fan (RL4Z S1402512HH)
The fan control circuit is installed on a small vertical daughter-board in the secondary side. A quality problem we spotted is that this small PCB is only held in place by several weak solder joints on its base. These solder joints completely detached from the PCB once we tried to disconnect the fan header, although we applied minimal force and were extra cautious. This means that strong vibrations (during shipping for instance) may cause these joints to detach as well, which would break the fan circuit, so the fan won't spin at any load/internal temperature. Such a fan's malfunction will, to make things worse, easily pass unnoticed since the fan only spins up at higher loads and increased temperatures, and the PSU isn't equipped with OTP to shut down operation once internal temperature go through the roof. An easy fix to this problem would be to apply some glue around the PCB to secure it in place. Some build-quality points where obviously lost here.

What does all this mean?

Now for some of you this is all mumbo jumbo and you dont understand what all that means, So you are probably going to ask well which is the best unit for the money?

The answer to that is the Leadex P2 and G2 takes a another win here, They are priced the lowest in almost every place i have looked, And they have won everything else so thats your best option unless the second or lower best rated is on a crazy sale.

Thats all

Thanks shilka,

Initially, my Corsair AX1200i was hot to the touch [RMA'ed and they sent a new one].  This one still runs rather warm for my taste, feels like it's throwing a lot of heat into my case...was thinking of getting a new PSU but had no idea where to turn.  Your post helped a lot, just ordered the P2...hope someone buys my 1200i [it being the holidays and all].

Been thinking of adding the NZXT HALE 90 V2 and the Antec High Current Pro Platinum

Anyone want them compare to the others?

Cancelled order for the P2, think I'll keep my server-grade AX1200i.  I'll fiddle with the software to get the fan going a little sooner to cool this puppy down.

I would have to say the EVGA SuperNova G2 is best value

But the P2 is a little better

Do you need 1000 watts?

Just curious, was reading your post from another thread. You posted a link to JonnyGURU; so I decided to see if my 2008 PSU was in his review. Well it was and with that said how do YOU think the Corsair HX1000 performs with today's line-up? And yes I know It's "overkill" but at the time this PSU was running 2 GTX 280s.

Its not actually not a true 1000 watts PSU its two 500 watts slapped together

Ripple on the two 12v rails are up to 4,6 times higher on the HX1000 vs the Leadex

Efficiency is 6 to 12% lower on the HX1000 vs the Leadex

Yeah I got that from comparing the 2 reviews as well. But what do you think; say running newer cards in SLi with the hx1000.
