[TPU] Corsair AX1500i Officially Titanium Rated - Page 6

post #51 of 148
Im really impressed with my AX760, the psu is a little over room temp when gaming. i wonder if the ax1500i while be just as cool running a 780 ti or 290x?

I needed this thing when I built my rig o.o

Just got my AX1200i in today at the crypto-flation price of 399 from Newegg because my XFX 1050w Pro Series melted on me.

According to Corsair Link, my components are pulling 1200-1300w DC (higher from the wall).

That's with only 3x 290s.

That's a problem since I have 4x 290s >.<<br />
Probably going to buy an AX1500i at launch.

The point is, it's not happening. X99 is going to be using huge amounts of power. NVIDIA announced the Titan Z today. The 780 Ti, the 290X, all new GPU architectures are using huge amounts of power, and the ultra-high end people are putting multiple GPUs in their systems.

The truth is that the average power consumption of a "mainstream" computer will go down. But there'll always be people pushing the limits. That's who this is for.
I agree with this completely. I am obviously a multi GPU user and testing my sig rig under load it is pulling a little under 1200 watts from the wall. I, like my many others in here plan to get X99 Octocore Extreme and OC the hell out of it and add 3-4 GPUs so I need all the power I can get. Keep up the good work George and BRING ON THE OVERKILL!

I hope everyone knows after Gold the advantages of power draw alone are laughably minimal. It's like saving $3 a year or something.

Only look after voltage stability after a point.

The rating will tell you a rough estimation of the build quality, if the contraption is totally trash or not, but if it's Gold or better, start looking for stability of output.

They practically sell to children with this obsession with a sticker with a fancy name.

There are good review sites on this. (not replies in this forum)

You're right, the electricity cost, noise and heat differences might be unnoticeable but now that I know there's Titanium out there I want one.

There's that smile.gif and also this: Only 80PLUS Titanium rated power supplies are tested at 10% load which is where computers spend alot of their time. At 20%, Titanium is 5% better than Gold. Assuming 24/7 operation at 300 watt load between an 80PLUS Gold 1500w and an 80PLUS Titanium 1500w, the annual difference in power cost would be about $20 at $0.15/kWh.

Not too much, but it helps. And the difference is even more pronounced at higher loads.

No it doesn't

That's a random conclusion. You have to calculate duration, cases, overalls, results, difference from cheaper equipment price. You just laid out technical specs only.

Chances are the statistical advantage is miserably insignificant, if not negative.

I strongly suspect rating is only useful for a rough, initial, quality assessment and power draw alone is either insignificant or not even an advantage if the price of the equipment is higher. With Gold in most cases being the ..golden rule it starts becoming a bad choice.

It any case it needs assessment, but intuition alone says only the childish "I want it cause" is its higher merit.

And in general look at output stability, not only rough ratings.

Okay.

80PLUS Gold requires an efficiency rating of 87% at 20% load
80PLUS Titanium requires an efficiency rating of 92% at 20% load

A 1500w Titanium PSU with a 300w load will draw 326.08w from the wall at 92% efficiency.
A 1500w Gold PSU with a 300w load will draw 344.83w from the wall at 87% efficiency.

That is a difference of 18.74w in current draw at the wall.

Which means a difference of .449kW/h per day assuming a 24 hour load.
Which means 13.47kW/h per month assuming a 30 day month
Which means 161.64kW/h per year assuming a 12 month year.
Which means $24.26 at $0.15 per kW/h


You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. Without even running the numbers, you declared my conclusion false. Good day.

If you can't handle the stress don't respond.

"Clearly"?

Ok, let's talk about clearly. You keep giving technical specs. The price per watt you keep calculating is not a comprehensive analysis of value to the user. You don't even include the difference of cost between the different equipment that even a child would think to do.

I do believe Mr. Fateswarm is absolutely correct, but I'm simply not going to trouble my mind with all those calculations. I've had an AX860 Platinum for over a year, it never makes a sound, any sound, it's stable, it's a world-class PSU, George's team designed it from a Seasonic base, I love the way it operates and love the way it looks, got the custom Corsair GEN 3 red PSU cables that also look freaking amazing, it simply makes me happy in every way, and when my PC is stable, smooth and effortless I get more work done, I get paid more, that's the real benefit, having a dependable PC that allows my work to flow out me without restriction, pure speed, no hiccups, no bumps in the road pure Corsair/Seasonic reliability, that pays off every day I use it.

I couldn't care less about saving $3 or $8 or $30 per annum, who has time to even consider such a dribbled waste of your personal time, George will design a Corsair Titanium PSU line-up this year and I'll order a brand new 860watt to 1000watt AX model, and get right back to work, end of story, thank you Corsair. thumb.gif

This is my beautiful AX860 Platinum in my M8 chassis, motherboard tray removed to diagnose a bent socket pin, was able to realign it easy enough.

Corsair PSUs Forever!!!
