    Default Corsair HX1000i 1000W Power Supply Review

    Two weeks ago, we had a look at the first and smallest unit in Corsair's new HXi line of power supplies. Enabled with Corsair Link, that unit proved itself a solid little unit indeed. It's time to go two sizes up from there and see how the 1kW unit behaves. Come on in, won't you?

    Another excellent unit. CWT have stepped their game up with the HXi for Corsair. Pity it's more expensive than the EVGA units.

    Never expect that you would say that.

    Wolf begs to differ, it seems.
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

    He's just jealous.

    In all seriousness, performance was still a 10. The .5 for functionality is for "too many Molex" (didn't see that one coming). 8.5 for value because Platinum is still expensive and pricing is based off of MSRP. Besides, when the Leadex was reviewed and given a 10 for value, it was over a year ago and only available in Taiwan. The price was actually higher than the HX1000i is now.

    Now, that said... when the Leadex based EVGA was reviewed, it was almost a year ago and on sale, but now it seems you can get it for a hard $199.99 @ Newegg which is a pretty damn good deal for a Platinum 1000W.

    Yeah I know. It was more tongue in cheek than anything else. I do generally prefer SuperFlower as a manufacturer over CWT, but my usual complaints about CWT (loose screws and sloppy soldering) don't seem to be there on the HXi

    Not long ago the EVGA P2 1200W was only $6 more than the HX1000i. The HXi will drop of course, it's brand new. But still.

    CWT improves their kw platform well. Although I didn't hear much about the former HX1050 Gold for comparison.

    I'd love to see comparison of similar models between EVGA and Corsair.
