The Nexus RX-1.1K 1100W is a sleek power supply that delivers solid features and good performance when heavily loaded with a case full of power-hungry components.  From a feature standpoint, the accessories included in this package are nothing spectacular, but there is a good assortment of sleeved modular cables that support beefy SLI/CrossFire setups, and an easy-to-use and labeled modular connection design is employed.  The 23 inch cables lengths are acceptable, and should not pose problems if you have a bottom-mounted full tower case and try to route the cables behind the motherboard tray and out of sight.

From a functional standpoint, the RX-1.1K has an 80 PLUS GOLD efficiency rating and a very quiet operation, one of the quietest we’ve come across in fact.  However, the low noise levels, coupled with smaller heatsinks, cause the unit to run at higher temperatures than we usually see on a kilowatt+ unit. The internals of the RK-1.1K aren’t cramped so airflow through the unit does help offset things. The bit of excess heat also isn’t a problem in terms of performance and the tradeoff here is that the RK-1.1K runs very quiet, so good case airflow will alleviate any concerns.

With a retail price of approximately $240 USD, the RX-1.1K GOLD sits squarely in the middle of the kilowatt market segment, priced very well and offering good value for a modular unit of this power capacity. The main selling point of the Nexus RX-1.1K 1100W is probably its low noise levels and efficiency in a convenient setup. There really isn’t any other detraction on this unit; it is a very good all-round power supply that offers a compelling combination of features, functionality, and aesthetics while maintaining very low noise levels.
