this 1000i has a ripple lower than 15mV under load at 50c and regulation less than 1%
Titanium efficiency and the fact he said its the best PSU he's ever tested? Slightly cheaper then the EVGA T2 and much better then anything with the same efficiency that's cheaper maybe.
Its explained in the review you linked..
The problem is, EVGA has been stomping all over everybody lately when it comes to value, and we find their P2 1kW unit sitting at thirty dollars cheaper than this one. Even Seasonic has a Platinum unit this size for cheaper, though only by ten bucks. In fact, there are only two units more expensive than this one, and not by a lot: the Antec HCP-1000 and Enermax Platimax 1kW. Both of them are ten dollars more than this one. Corsair, I think you need to get this price down some yet. But I think it's at least as good a value as little brother, maybe even a little better than that, so I'll do an 8.5 here.
Not particularly invested in Seasonic or any other brand, but I do appreciate quality tech.
