Arrow Corsair AX1600i Review

Quote:
Many moons ago, Corsair rocked the power supply world with the release of the AX1500i... a very impressive and also very expensive piece of hardware that showed just what this company was capable of. But that was then and this is now. Corsair's come back to the table today with another beast of a flagship to succeed that model in the AX1600i. This unit comes with a lot of design improvements inside, particularly in the PFC section. Let's see if it's worthy of carrying the Corsair torch for a few more years.

Wow, that vreg is A+++. And that modular connector bag looks like something I'd take with me camping to hold granola bars and stuff.

I calculate 0.10% average regulation cold if you include the 0.00% 5V rail. Is there a reason you only averaged 3.3V and 12V?

Another top notch PSU, good job Corsair (and Flextronix).

I think that in the 2020 area the next improvement would be the replacement of the magnetic stickers with full 16,777,216 colors RGB displays right?

If it was me, I would ditch averaging voltage regulation altogether. It loses the importance of 12V rail over the others. You wouldn't average the ripple from all rails, so why vreg?

considering the competition (or lack thereof) this unit is actually priced very reasonably. i expected it to be $100 higher. i like to customize my cables and build in smaller cases, so personally i would skip this unit altogether. however, for anyone looking for top of the line performance in the 1kWh+ area, this is the PSU to get.

hello guys. i just picked up this unit and was looking for sleeved cables for it. i called corsair's tech support and now i'm confused more than before.

tech support said that the main 24 pin cable is a type 4 cable (with caps) whereas everything else is a type 3 (no caps). corsair's website does not list unit as a supported model on any of the cables. can anyone confirm this before a spend a ton of money on the wrong cables and possibly set my house on fire?

thank you

I think you misunderstood tech support.

Type 3 and Type 4 are the same pinour. Only difference is that Type 4 has caps. Except the Type 4 24-pin which has extra pins for sense wires.

So, to be safe, you order a type 4 cable kit.

Tpe 3 will work.. except for the 24-pin.
