Gone are the days of the cliché grey metal power supply that housed cables no longer than your forearm. Consumers have wisened to the reality of protecting their money invested into quality core components, certainly not the least of which is the modern power supply. These days they come in various models and makes, wattages and colours, with manufacturers now offering a wide selection of choices to discerning users who will fork out a good chunk of their hard-earned money. And with systems typically consuming more and more power with each subsequent generation, the once-lowly power supply now occupies a place of honour and prestige in a computer system.
Which brings us to our topic of today: the Corsair AX1200i power supply. It’s a monster unit designed for those consumers who require a high-wattage power supply that brings top performance and a price tag to match. Marketed for enthusiasts (particularly gamers), the AX1200i has an entirely modular setup, is 80PLUS Platinum Certified, comes with an innovative hardware/software monitoring setup, and sports some other nice features that look very promising.
Let’s see if this Corsair AX1200i can meet our expectations.
