Well, it seems to be one of the ones of this range that I can get from Amazon (Based in the UK). I tend to keep my dealings with Amazon whenever I can because of their CS. Don't mind paying a bit extra if that's the case (Plus Amazon are always discounted to negate that anyway).

I already checked out a few cheaper 'AX860s' in different housings by other brands but Amazon didn't stock them.

Hey guys,

Just wanna say that I have been LTC mining on the RM1000 for 24 hours now.

Running a custom bios @ 1212v giving me a boost of 2246Mhz and ram just bellow 8K.

That renderes a Khash/s around 714.

The PSU is a bit warm, so is the card 84 degrees on air, but it is stable as a rock.

For your information I have 4 hard drives in raid (2 ocz vertex 4 in raid 0 and 2 barracuda's in raid 0 working none stop).

I have also been burning a lot of audio CD's for my car. - That + a overclock on my 4770k to 4400 and XMP rated rams running at 2666 Mhz should give me a stable usage of 750W+

No issues what so ever, this PSU rocks, no coil whine or anything like that.

Of course if I run 3D Mark there is coil whine in cloud gate, but it is difficult for me to tell if that is from the PSU or the GFX.

However, it is to early for me to tell if this is the best PSU I ever had, but I can tell it is not the worst.

If you have the money, if you want the bragging rights, go for an AX1200, but as that product is 153,12 USD more than my RM 1000, I paid 228,00 USD for my RM 1000 or equivalent to 1489 SEK here: http://www.webhallen.com/se-sv/datorkomponenter/182930-corsair_powersupply_rm1000_1000w_80_plus_gold I did not think it was worth for me to buy the AX1200.

As we now can provide custom colours for the RM1000 in all colors I think it makes it worth buying - Personally the only thing I do not like with it, is that they have chosen yellow. - I know that Asus's new mainstream motherboard series is Gold in colors, but if you like me like ROG - witch is not either worth buying to be honest, you are getting ripped of by ASUS buying ROG series, just for your info, but still with a custom sticker on it in red and black and a red and black pirate bay logo on top, it ROCKS thumb.gif

Definitely worth the 1489 SEK so far. - Also, Corsair is a well known and well respected company, that alone makes me feel safe when buying a PSU from them.

So everyone - Feel safe buying it, I am pushing this piece of supposedly well overpriced product to the limit until it dies.

having mined myself I bet that PSU cant handle 4x 280x's as I have run on a EVGA 1000w P2 for weeks on end?

you say its already getting warm running 1 card! well mine doesn't get warm running 4 cards 24/7 - 7 days a week. 1 card on a 1000w PSU is hardly testing its ability

for £20 more here in the uk its well worth the extra bit of dosh to get something better, even the G2 for £10 more!

the pcie cables are already sleeved red if that's the color your after & it comes with a 10 year warranty! yes 10 years!

the whole point of this thread I think? is to inform people that there are much better PSU's available at the same price or for a minimal bit extra tongue.gif

So if your happy with your PSU that's fine, just don't go telling people to buy it because of stickers LOL. (we can all make stickers for a couple of £)

Many on here run multi GPU setups with significant overclocks for benching/demanding gaming etc & well if experience has taught us anything its that a strong reliable PSU is critical for stability.

If your happy with it then fine! use it by all means, but trying to tell others to buy it cause of stickers & your running 1 card on a 1000w PSU is hardly giving credit to its ability if its already quite warm!

No offense intended but Seriously STICKERS!

Well if you do understand computers and overclock in general I guess you do understand that you can make 1 gfx especially a Geforce 780 ti Superclocked using a lot of power using a custom bios from here:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1438886/official-nvidia-gtx-780-ti-owners-club

If you do not understand that, please read through the 900+ pages - That will clear things up. Thank you in advance.

Regarding the stickers, well that was actually just for fun, but since some have criticized the product for the look, I have created alternative stickers and so have others, a few can be seen here:





So that the PSU gets a little warm, well as you might know since you have read every page in this thread, the fan do not spin until it utilizes 400watt +, so it is BUILD to get a little warm.

Regarding if I am happy for the product or not = It is a PSU nothing more nothing less. - It works that is all that matters. My ram costed me more than the PSU. - I do not in general tend to lean towards PSU's in general, but personally I like ThermalTake this one in particular: http://www.pcper.com/news/Cases-and-Cooling/Thermaltakes-new-semi-modular-kilowatt-class-ToughPower-PSU but that model wasn't availible.

K buddy!

Im Just pointing out that your PSU is hardly getting utilized fully! so saying its ok cause you mined on it for 24 hours with 1 780ti is hardly showing its potential.

a good majority of PSU's now have hybrid fan modes or ECO Thermal Control Fan System's so whats so special about the RM?

I don't get why your so insistent that this a good PSU for the money!

a good majority of PSU's now have hybrid fan modes or ECO Thermal Control Fan System's so whats so special about the RM?

I don't get why your so insistent that this a good PSU for the money!

There is absolutely nothing special with the RM1000. - It is just a PSU. But it isn't total crap either as some have tried to point it out to be - that is just unnecessary bashing towards a product and I cannot find the reason for it. That is actually why I am so active in this thread. = I find it preposterous without any hard evidence that the RM is more or less expensive than any of its counterparts and therefore I must fight for the right to say: The RM1000 is a decent PSU and it gets the job done.
