We mainly know Raidmax for their cases, but they also make power supplies. When talking about power supplies many people go for the highest wattage possible, but many people will never use that wattage in a 1200W+ unit. 1000W units are perfect for systems with multiple graphics cards and other demanding components. The RX-1000AE from Raidmax is a 1000W unit that is semi-modular, has an 80PLUS Gold certification, and a silent 135 mm cooling fan. What’s even better is that this unit is currently selling for around $150. Not bad for a 1000W unit with these features, but will the RX-1000AE make it through our tests? Read on as we find out!
Special thanks to Raidmax for providing us with the RX-1000AE 1000W Power Supply to review.

The RX-1000AE comes in some rather unique packaging. It is actually designed to look like a toolbox. It makes it very easy to carry the unit around and can be used after to store and carry your computer accessories.
Opening it up inside you will find everything nicely organized inside. Getting it all out you have the RX-1000AE power supply, modular cables, power cable, thumbscrews, normal screws, a vibration dampener, two sets of velcro ties and a user’s manual. I have to say Raidmax has included some great accessories that you normally don’t see included with power supplies.
