CORSAIR HX1000W open box test
1.Packing and case with high quality design, makes this PSU looks great.
2.Pass the “80PLUS” efficiency certification, modular cables with flat cable design.
3.Great numbers of connectors, even support 3 Way VGA or multi RAID platform as well.
4.The power supply present is stable on 3.3V/5V/12V test, differentiate gap is under1%
5.The power supply comes with low temp. when work, 14cm fan is quiet even in heavy loading mode.
6.CORSAIR test all these series with 50 degree temperature, also comes with 5 years warranty.
1.Although the website have HX1000W detail spec, but still wish the manual can have more spec. and test detail.
2.CORSAIR is famous but not that easy to buy in ASIA retail market,
if they can have more channel and better price strategy, customers will have more better choice.
Design/Components ratio: ★★★★★★★★☆☆
Outlooks/Shapes ratio: ★★★★★★★★★☆
Cost/Performance ratio: ★★★★★★★★★☆
The cost/performance ratio compares with other retail 900~1200W products,
personally I think we have to use same segment products to get more fair comparison.
Of course the high watts PSU C/P ratio is not that good compare with 400~700W segment products.
The CORSAIR HX1000W is about 270USD on NEWEGG in US, it’s already a great value high level PSU.
HX1000W is the top level PSU product of CORSAIR, comes with great spec. and rich connectors design.
Besides 1000W output supply, modular design and 80PLUS certified, also comes with many Japan caps, high stability voltage supply and high quality outlooks.
HX1000W comes with high price and segment, but it’s really worth it to get higher level design and packing.
Former CORSAIR PSU was OEM from other power supply factories, such as Seasonic designed the HX620W. This HX1000W seems made from CWT, CWT also have similar products.
But compare CROSAIR retail PSU and OEM factory products, CORSAIR did better job on cable design, more solid caps, heatsink size and warranty supports.
I think it’s because CORSAIR have higher standard and request on PSU OEM design.
