The Raidmax RX-1200AE is a power supply that delivers solid features and performance and does it in a sleek aesthetic as well. From a functional standpoint, the unit has very good voltage regulation and 80PLUS Bronze efficiency, and will handle just about any hardware setup. The Bronze rating is at the lower end of the spectrum these days, but this Raidmax unit isn’t meant to compete against the Gold or Platinum products, and at $160 (we found it for $140 after rebate!) it’s not priced as such anyways.
From a feature standpoint, there are a wide assortment of sleeved modular cables included. There’s also an easy-to-use connection design, and a familiar Andyson design inside. The cable lengths here are quite generous, not the longest we’ve seen, but should be adequate for any mid-tower case.
From a performance perspective, the voltage regulation results were very good, while the ripple was well within allowable tolerances and encouraging. Again, nothing spectacular here, but nothing worrisome either; just a solid set of testing results.
The only real downside here is the satin finish which is prone to fingerprints. While there’s nothing really groundbreaking to speak of, there’s nothing really negative to mention either. The Raidmax RX-1200AE is a rather basic 1200W modular power supply, but it’s a solid one, and it comes with a very attractive price tag for consumers on a modest budget.
