Corsair HX1200i 1200W Power Supply Review

When it comes to power supplies there are always a few names I always recommend and Corsair is typically at the top of my list. I still find it quite impressive that Corsair has transitioned from a memory to producing some of the best cases, power supplies, AiO watercoolers and more. Corsair’s HXi Series power supplies and designed with gamers and enthusiasts in mind. Each HXi model features 80PLUS Platinum certification, Corsair Link compatibility, and a Zero RPM fan which means it will not even spin up at medium and low loads. Today we will be taking a look at the flagship unit the HX1200i, which if you can guess is the 1200W unit. Let’s jump in!

Special thanks to Corsair for providing us with the HX1200i 1200W Power Supply to review.

The HX1200i comes in Corsair’s typical retail packaging, which is always very informative. On the front there is a photo of the unit, and it lets us know some of the main features which include 80PLUS Platinum certification. a 7 year warranty, Corsair link compatibility, and ultra low noise.

At the top of the box there is a listing of the different connectors. This is great as you might need a certain number of connectors for your system and it is great to have this on the box so if you are at the store you know right there.
