The Corsair HX and AX Series power supplies are a great choice to make your rig look cleaner and run more efficiently. Excellent Quality backed by a 5 to 7 year warranty makes choosing a power supply for your rig much easier.

We are going to start out with the biggest and baddest power supply currently on the market. (Yes I know there are higher wattage units, but this is the only one that can feasibly be run on a normal circuit 15 amp in America)


Yes boys and girls, this is the AX1500i. It is 80+ Titanium rated which means at it's peak effeciency, it runs at 94%. However, you aren't always going to be pulling 750 watts, so what it's efficiency across the board? A whopping 90% at any load . (According to jonnyguru.com)

Needless to say, this is an absolutely impressive PSU.

More details can be found at jonnyguru.com

Next up in the AX series we have the AX1200i.



This PSU has been on the market for quite some time now. Back when a 1200w PSU only could dream of being Platinum rated. It has stood the test of time and is still a choice for a lot of enthusiasts. It has receieved numerous awards including. "Must Have" from Kitguru.net, "Best Hardware" from Guru3D, "EDitor's Choice from Vortez.net, "Editor's Choice" from TechPowerUp, "Wish List" from Hexus.net, and the ever so important, jonnyguru.com recommended

Lastly from the AX series we have the little brothers to the AX1200i. The AX860i, AX760i, AX860, and AX760. All five of these are the updated versions of the now Discontinued AX 80+ Gold rated series. The AX860i has received just as high accommodations as the AX1200i. It stays true to the AX name and it delivers what you would expect from Corsair' top tier PSUs.

Welcome to the HX Series!

HX1050





HX850



My first PSU that I bought in late 2013 was the HX850. Why did I buy that? Go to Newegg. It has some of the best reviews (above PSUs that have less than 50 reviews, why newegg insists to have it set up to where if it has one five start review it will be in the top of the "best rated" section... I will never know) and has been tried and tested by many reviewers. It has performed admirably for me, and still does!

I thought I would be different and make only the modular kinds lol, Corsair has way too many psu's and alot of people on here have them, I would have to add 1000 members when I wake up lol, Do you like this club, like how it looks?

Hellz Yeah! My HX850 should be delivered tomorrow.

Theory, just a note to edit the wattage under the specs for the HX models. Currently it says "Power: 650 Watts" for each.

Nice clean look! You should add a Google Spreadsheet once you get more members. It's much easier to manage.

Silly me bought a TX850 for a mid-tower and now it's filled with cables lol

I looked for the HX450 and found some pictures but no specs, I later found out that corsair discontinued it and made the VX450W, I don't know why...

I know why they discontinued it, they didn't sell well (it was a bit expensive for what people generally expect from a 450w PSU). They told it to me when I e-mailed them a question about mine (if it could handle a Radeon HD5850 - to which they said it could without a problem) last year as the site already said it was only sold in limited areas of the world.

Anyway, this is a great PSU which is 80 Plus Bronze, which can very well compete with 550w PSU's which are not as good. But as we all know, a higher number always sounds nicer, and even people who know a bit about PSU's don't want to take risks or just don't know if the PSU can actually deliver the advertised wattage. For the connoisseurs, however, this is a great PSU that actually can deliver more than 450w - up to 550w (although it performs below 80 Plus Bronze that way).

I originally had an E8400, a factory overclocked 8800GT (Gigabyte Turboforce Edition) and a single HDD. I've since upgraded to a Q9550, overclocked it to 3.2Ghz (8x 400 FSB), replaced the 8800GT with a GTX 460 1GB, and added a second HDD.

What can I say ? This PSU is ideal for a midrange build!

Count me in!

Oh, and my PSU has a 7 year warranty, and so do all other current HX models, except for the HX1000 (edit: also the discontinued HX52w and 620w), which is only 80 Plus certified - only that one has a 5 year warranty. (the HX450 and HX650 are 80Plus Bronze and the HX750 and HX850 are 80Plus Silver). You need to correct that information on the first post.

Cheers!

Yep, I went to the first page and was just thinking about that. I went to get my manual: Here are the specs:

Specs:
Dimension: 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 150mm(L)
Power: 450 Watts
80 Plus: Bronze
ATX 24-pin & 20-pin: 1
EPS/ATX12V 8-pin/4-pin: 1
PCI-E Connector 8-pin/6-pin: 2
4 Pin Peripheral Connector: 8
SATA Connector: 6
Floppy Connector: 2
MTBF: 100,000 Hours




Oh, now that I have the manual with me, I just remembered that at the time the HX450w was sold, there were two additional HX ones: the HX520w and the HX620w.

But they are actually older in design and they came to market earlier too: check out this HX620w review (http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/p...odular_psu/1)- the manual does not even have the HX450w listed on the cover - my manual lists the three PSU's). They have three 12v 18A rails, while the HX450 is newer, rounds the wattage to '50' like all the ones that are for sale now and has a single 33A rail. The color scheme is different too. The HX450w already has the newer color scheme. Oh, and the HX520w and HX620w only carried a 5 year warranty.

More work for you to do hehehe.

And here are the specs for those:

HX 520w:

Specs:
Dimension: 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 150mm(L)
Power: 520 Watts
80 Plus: standard (not advertised) but certified: check here:http://www.plugloadsolutions.com/80P...x?id=25&type=2

HX 620w:

Specs:
Dimension: 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 150mm(L)
Power: 620 Watts
80 Plus: standard (not advertised) but certified: check here:http://www.plugloadsolutions.com/80P...x?id=25&type=2

Floppy Connector: 2
MTBF: 100,000 Hours



Cheers!

P.S. While checking the site above (see last link - directed from the 80plus site). the HX750 and HX850 are actually Gold certified. Corsair probably only manages to make them in volume with Silver efficiency and thus calls them Silver Certified. OR, they reserve the best and label them as AX series. But the fact that they are hiding those two HX series achieved Gold certification is nonetheless interesting.

P_dog89gt 02-15-2011 10:15 AM

Hey add me in, HX850.........BTW I changed my mind on the HAF 922 and I'm waiting on the 800D Obsidian. But the 24 pin doesn't reach the Asus P8P67 power slot in the HAF 922 without going in front of the MB. Whats the best site for a full HX850 extension kit or at least the 24 and 8 pin connectors?


Enigma8750 02-15-2011 10:34 AM

Please put me on the Roster as an HX-1000 Owner.


I have had my very expensive PSU for about 2 and a half years. Early this year after a transplant to another case I blew out the HX-1000. I contacted Corsair and I had no trouble. They asked me to send my old unit in and I did. I got a tracking number 3 days later. Then to my surprise I recieved a BRAND NEW HX-1000. It was a great experience and I will never buy another brand of PSU for my own systems other than the Corsair HX Brand.

I LOVE MY PSU

Just because it can output more than 450w for a short period that doesn't make it underrated or anything. The components used in there are for a 450w PSU.... so it's a 450w PSU nothing more.

Actually I had read a review two years ago that concluded it could actually perform like a regular 550w PSU (read: not within 80 Plus Bronze efficiency), but I've searched for it and can't find it online. Anyway, Corsair has a reputation for giving their PSU's some margin. Even the now discontinued entry level 400w (80 Plus) could perform as a non 80 Plus 450w PSU.

Personally though, I wouldn't deliberately use more than the rated capacity unless I really needed for a few days. The reviewers might have gotten lucky and received a better than average performing PSU hehehe.

I went with HX1000 over AX1200.

The coilwhine problems where too extreme for us who bought the earlier versions without the fixed/isolated components update. The HX1000 is back from the time when Corsair was selected as Best PSU/RAM manufacturer, 2010.

This system is taken down for now, just got my RMA number from msi. My 8-pin cpu-power melted in the socket, so Theres a bunch of hardened plastic in the mobo. Thinking things got a little hot.

Put a new connection on the 8-pin (from one of the spare cables), and now waiting on a tester from newegg, so I can find out if it was my psu or someting to do with the motherboard. I have had it folding 24/7 for months so well see

Someone correct if I'm wrong, but the ax850 would most likely be sufficient to power your system. The following review has it pulling 1045W before shutting down while maintaining 86.2% efficiency.http://www.kitguru.net/components/power-supplies/zardon/corsair-ax850-power-supply-review/4/
Maybe this is why Corsair didn't make the ax1000.confused.gif

Good read, thanks. Yeah the HX1000 or AX1200 would be for another system, its a i7 950, rampage III extreme, and right now one GTX570. I could easily do 850 currently but Im not sure once I add one or two more GTX570's

I think one more 570 would be just fine, but agreed, three definitely seems like too much

Being able to draw 1045w for a short time doesn't make it a 1000w, it's an 850w PSU and nothing more.

Just because it's capable of reaching there, it doesn't mean it is designed to run at that wattage 24/7.

Not at all true, from what I've read in this forum. They are each based on a different CWG design.

Anyway, the Corsair HX850 is one of my favorite components, next to the Twin Frozr GPU.

They built it to meet Silver, and when tested it happened to hit Gold efficiency. They chose to market it as silver because that's what it was designed to do.

Is that the new EK - Multioption RES X2 - 250 Advanced, the update from the previous series? I may be wrong.

For those who haven't read one of my reviews before: I do a picture unboxing and overview of features and connectors, then dismantle the power supply and do a component-level analysis, mainly detailing major design features, transformers and rectifiers, major ICs, capacitors, etc. I don't have much real equipment so I usually skip testing. I can do in-system testing with a DMM and Kill-a-Watt in my sig rig, but prefer not to since Athena is a royal pain to dismantle (what is it with Antec and thumbscrews?) and the data isn't all that useful in comparison to what Jonny or Paul or OK_Wolf get.

I think that voids the warranty... well sort of another user was asking for the "warranty void if removed" sticker because when he sleeved the PSU he had to open it, that's like common sense so my point is: If you don't really need to open the PSU you can sleeve it and it won't void the warranty. hope that helps wink.gif
