From a functional standpoint, the Extreme PX has very good voltage regulation and efficiency, requiring an extremely hungry system to tax this beast. With four rails and 960W available for them, you need a very hardcore and expensive system to push the Extreme PX 1000W. That being said, if you are fortunate to have such a system, this PowerColor unit will respond eagerly, providing strong and stable power for your setup in an efficient manner.

The Extreme PX 1000W is also very user-friendly for daily 24/7 operation, running very quiet with the fan managing to keep noise levels impressively low. A wide assortment of fully sleeved modular cables that support the latest multiple SLI/CrossFire setups, Japanese capacitors, and a unique and edgy aesthetic further add to the positives here. The cable lengths here are very good as well, and will work fine for users who are particular about their cable management. And with an 80 PLUS Bronze rating, this unit is quite impressive in terms of efficiency, though not quite up to some of the Silver or Gold units we’ve seen.

Solidly built with excellent quality components doesn’t normally come cheap, but we found the PowerColor Extreme PX 1000W for a competitive price of $170 USD. It’s not the lowest price, but it’s certainly far better quality than the cheaper kilowatt units.

PowerColor may be new to the power supply market, but the Extreme PX 1000W is an impressive outing for the new kid on the block. It’s a great power supply for demanding users, and if you’re in the market for a kilowatt unit then this one should definitely be on your shortlist.
