1 out of 5 eggsGood PSU with Fatal FLAW

This review is from: CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Enough juice to power even the most demanding needs. Looks good and i like the modular cabling.

Cons: The fan on the PSU is designed not to run all the time, it only comes on when the psu needs cooling. This is a good idea on paper but its execution is poor. The fan comes on for me about every 5 to 10 minutes except instead of coming on at a low rpm it comes on at 100% speed and it sounds like a leaf blower coming on, in about 15 to 30 second the fan slows and is quiets down. However this cycle happens about every 5 to 10 minutes and is most irritating. Unfortunately i have applied for the rebate and now i am stuck with a annoying psu.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent PSU

This review is from: CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: This is the best PSU I've had in quite some time. I purchased it back in 2013. My PC has been on for almost 24/7 since I got the power supply. It's nice, it's quiet, has a 7 year warranty and does it's job. Hopefully Corsair will maintain its quality builds when I purchase a new PSU.

Cons: It wasn't free.

This review is from: CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Has to work to have a "pro".

Cons: Dead on Arrival.

Other Thoughts: Inspection and quality check to ensure the unit is operational before shipping would be a good thing.

This review is from: CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: -Modular
-POWER!!!!!!!!! (Marty McFly should have had this thing)

Cons: -Honestly none only power-supply I use for builds now.

Other Thoughts: This is the only power-supply I will use for builds. I have purchased 6 from this series and all are still cooking with gas. You want the best you've got it!

5 out of 5 eggsSeems to be working

This review is from: CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: - Modular
- Good cable shielding
- Very, very quiet
- Comes in a fancy bag... though I don't know when I'd need to use the bag again.
- All PCI-E cables are 6+2 pin

Cons: None to speak of (yet)

Other Thoughts: Only 90% modular, the default cables are 24-pin ATX, 8-pin CPU, and 2 PCI-E 6+2 pin connectors... This didn't bother me though (nor should it most people) because anyone purchasing a 1050w PSU will most likely use these.

Also, it came with another modular cable for the CPU connector... not sure why this is needed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat power supply

This review is from: CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Lots of connector options, shuts it's own fan off when under low load, quiet when fan is on, over 1000 watts of power

Cons: Like almost all power supplies I've come across it needs more sata connectors. Had to go the molex-to-sata route to get all of my hard drives plugged in.

Other Thoughts: Use this in a 24/7 high end DVR which writes to 13 drives constantly. Clean, stable, power is critical and this PSU handles it well.

5 out of 5 eggs1st haswell Power sup

This review is from: CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Wow is it working?!! The fan rarely comes on. No heat no hick up, no bumps in the road on this bad boy. Here is the Lay out for you and you decide.

MSI Gaming 5 mother board
Crucial M.2 SSD 128 gig
WD Red 1 tera
Seagate Momentus 700gig
Intel i7-4790K
2X MSI R9 290X Lightning
Corsair Dominator 1600 32gig
H100i
Corsair Carbide Air 540
It fans up when a load hit her otherwise its off and cool.

Cons: Semi Mod

Other Thoughts: I am a believer that 850 watt is plenty for anything. I went a little further due to the 2 R9's. I think I would of been safe having a 850 in this series if they made it or something close. Anyhow its very very nice.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU

This review is from: CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: well this is a first time for a corsair purchase and everyone told me they were good, so word of mouth is why i made the purchase first off, well my friends were correct, this power supply unit looks well made to the eye, all the plugs and wires looked proper and not cut short or exposed like some other brands, you get a plenty supply of wiring for your needs for your entire case as well as internal stuff, as well as a case for the extras, as for the power supply itself it is running smooth and very quiet, no noise on startup and no noise upon running and no noise on shutdown and yes it works as it powers everything just fine.........the price i thought was fine for the similar products out there that were for the same or near the same but the quality with corsair might be he way to go ........buy with confidence,

Cons: none so far

2 out of 5 eggsit's a Squeeler

This review is from: CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: The connection cords where a good length. My EPS and mainboard connector both wrap nicely around the back of the case (Antec 1200) to remain out of sight.

Although it's not completely modular, by the looks of things if you have a system assembled in the last 10 years you'll use the pre-wired connections anyways.

Cons: Coil Whine, Capacitor Squeal, whatever you want to call it, it's **** parts. I searched the box, the website and every piece of literature about this PSU and although I found a lot of "High Quality 105 degree Capacitors" I've not once seen the name "Japanese Capacitors". Irregardless it's got a bad component that is so high pitched it would make dogs howl.

I should have closed the box and sent it back the moment I found the faux felt bag surrounding the unit. (Overcompensating much?)

It does have a 7 year warranty, but here's my dilemma. Do I shut off my computer and repack the PSU for replacement and wait 2 weeks for this one to ship out and a new one to ship in, OR, do I buy that Seasonic that has much higher reviews and request a return on this one and swap it out without the downtime.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We're sorry to hear that you're experiencing coil whine. We do offer express RMA's for those who need their replacements in a hurry, if you would like to get a replacement feel free to submit a ticket at corsair.force.com or call us at 888-222-4346 and we'll be happy to help you.

Thank you,
