I guess, now I left with only two choices: get the AX860i unit or the HX1000i for an additional 50$ USD. By taking into account that my current PC upgrade budgets stand at 400$ USD, I'll probably go for the HX1000i.

Also, I heard that one of the Corsair OEMs are Seasonic. Is that true? And if yes, can somebody tell me which Corsair PSU series are made by Seasonic?


This is the best that I can do:




Some of the newer PSUs aren't on this list, but that's nothing a look at professional reviews of those PSUs won't cover. ;)

Loneliness is a good thing to share with someone.

The virtuous spirit has no need for thankful approval, owning a certain conviction that what has been done is right.
