Corsair, for years has been named as one of the best manufacturers of computer power supplies. This time they went a bit further when compared with the competition by offering the users quality that was only seen in power solutions only used for high-end servers.
AX 1200i is the first model of computer power supply that is targeted for home usage that is using a DSP (Digital Signal Processor), which controls its functions.This chip is meant for a rigorous control of the outgoing voltage in comparison to the values that are specified by the ATX standard. That’s how ATX power supplies work within the permitted deviation of voltage in a limit of 5 percent, while this power supply’s deviation frame allows it to deviate by only 1.5 percent.
The digital control brings some other advantages as well. It brings a noise decrease and a decrease in other deviations, which are up to three times lower than in a normal power supply. The precise control has brought also a big efficiency improvement, which surpasses even the hardest standards, like 80+ Platinum and it has an average of 92%.
So that it is not just a server power supply converted in to a home usage power supply, they have implemented Corsair Link- that will allow the user hardware tracking of all the data parameters. The power supply is connected by a special connector to an internal USB connector and on the motherboard and through special software it enables the user to see the full as well as the individual power consumption of every component in the computer. The user can also check the systems consumption in different time periods. Even though the power supply is made as a single rail, the software enables it to control the power intensity to all the connected cables individually.
And it comes with a lot of connector cables and all of them are modular. Even the other specs like 100 amps on a branch of 12 volts, a fan that doesn’t even come on until the power consumption is lower than 400 watts and the automatic check system of the powers’ properness is nothing than impressive.
The price of 350 $ is also impressive.
