    Default Jonny's new Corsair gig

    Well guys... Once again I have to take a break from doing reviews.

    Last month I took a job with Corsair. To avoid conflict of interest, I'm going to refrain from doing power supply reviews.

    The position I've taken is more of a marketing position, as opposed to the product development stuff I've done in the past, but maybe it'll be a nice change of pace. The kinds of things I'm working on are marketing documents, blog posts, etc. In fact, this week they posted my first bit of work. I basically took apart the new AX1200i and pointed out how it's different and why. Check it out if you'd like: http://www.corsair.com/us/blog/ax-se...nical-overview

    And if you like it, please "like" it on Facebook and stuff.

    Early next week I'm posting load test results for the AX1200i. Sort of a mini-review. Of course, the 6th is the embargo date for the AX1200i so the web is going to be inundated with reviews.

    That's interesting, and totally unexpected.. Congrats Jon!.. hope it works brilliantly for you, and Corsair as well, can't wait to see the AX1200i "mini-review"

    Grats mate.

    With some luck, maybe I can take up the slack.

    Nice, congratulations!

    I actually saw and read your "commented disassembly" of the AX1200i last night, but that was my last browser tab for the evening, and I was dead tired so I haven't asked about it here... I thought you were a "guest commentator" of sorts, but this is even better. Corsair have made another good business decision, it seems

    Looking forward to seeing what the flagship Corsair can do.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Congrats and good luck

    As for the AX1200i... I'm dissapointed that it still has YL fan. I'd expect something better in the flagship model, especially since the there were complaints about the fan with the standard AX1200.

    According to xbitlabs, fan in original AX1200 spun @around 1200 rpm@idle. Even Silent Wings are not inaudible at that speed.

    Though being rated @2800 RPM max does not help spinning slow at standard voltages, no doubt about it - they would have to start at somewhere around 3V - good luck with that.

    I'll be content with getting idle noise down. Full load noise is very unlikely to go away @that power level - maybe with >95% full load efficiency.

    No beard. Just me.

    BTW: Finally getting used to the new Canon camera. Really appreciated the manual focus when taking a picture of that PWM connector on the fan.
