The PSU you bought is a standard ATX PSU which means it will fit in every case that has room for an large ATX PSU and will work with all ATX motherboards which is pretty much every motherboard known to man

But with that being said there are better options out there and do you even need 1200 watts?

HX series is great. All of the reviews I have seen have given them high marks. My own personal experience with the HX750i and HX1000i agrees with those reviews. I used both of them in Heatripper Threadkiller (see sig for specs and build log). The only reason I switched from the 750W model is that my system pulls 660W from the wall while folding and that was a bit too close to the limit for my comfort.

And yes, it will fit in the TT Core P5 case, which has an adjustable power supply mount. I used that case for my previous build (TT Green, link in my sig).

660 watts from the wall is about 600 watts used by the system so there was no need to replace the PSU
Its rated to do 750 watts so 600 watts is not a problem not even 24/7 operations

While that is true, I will save money in the long run due to higher efficiency with the larger power supply.

I've only owned Corsair PSUs before, and have never had any issues with them. So I went with them again. When I used some online PSU configuration tools, it pointed me to at least a 1000 watt PSU given what I ultimately plan to do with the rig. I thought it would be best to bump it up a bit, just to play it safe and give me maximum adaptability.

Those so called calculators always overstate number by at least 28% and often much more so you went way overkill on wattage due to that misinformation
As long as you are not doing SLI or Crossfire a 650 watt would have been more than enough wattage, add a second video card and you are looking at 750-850 watts

And you are aware that Corsair does not make any of the PSU´s they sell?
You would have been better off with a Seasonic Prime Ultra instead of a HXi

Not that the HXi is bad the Prime Ultra is just much better

Edit: return that HX1200i you dont need that much wattage and while its not bad there are much better and newer options out there

Only issue I had with my AX corsairs was a faulty Link dongle that would cause a lot of random shutdowns/restarts. I switched to the Comm port version and had no issues since then.
