2 out of 5 eggsDoes ok, but has a 1.5 year life span.

This review is from: CORSAIR AXi series AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Did as it should, gave enough power to GPU and entire system.
Appeared well made and with great cables.
7 year warranty.

Cons: Ive had this unit for exactly 3 years and have gone through 2 units thus far.
Both units died exactly 1.5 years after installation.
RMA procedure is frustrating
Cost of shipping back another dead PSU at my expense...
Each time the PSU has died, it has taken my GTX 690 with it.

Other Thoughts: It performed just fine, but it's lifespan is a problem.
When the first PSU died it took my GTX 690 ($1000) with it to the grave. Luckily it was replaced by EVGA.
Here we are again with the PSU having died and taking my replacement 690 with it. Which is no longer under warranty.
Each time this PSU has died, it has killed my GPU.
You have been warned.

5 out of 5 eggsOverkill, but worth it.

This review is from: CORSAIR AXi series AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: This delivers clean power to my entire build, the fully modular design (as expected in high end PSU's) makes cable management a breeze. I honestly haven't bothered looking at the stock cables because I went with CableMod red/black cables fresh out of the box. Corsair Link software is pretty cool, however I only used it to see my total power draw out of curiosity, it is nice software though.

Cons: Zero cons.

Other Thoughts: Again, this is a massively overkill PSU, I could've gotten by on the 860w version of this and been just fine with my SLI 980 Ti configuration but I wanted to have headroom in case I added a third 980 Ti later.

1 out of 5 eggsQC defective, do not buy

This review is from: CORSAIR AXi series AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Sophisticated control software, runs quiet

Cons: This PS blew out after a week of not heavy use. This company needs to run their PS for a little while before sending them to customers, it's called QC. Avoid buying from this company.

2 out of 5 eggsPowers up and Powers off

This review is from: CORSAIR AXi series AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Nothing yet

Cons: Built a new pc and flicked the power button on the psu and on it went and off it went. PSU kept recycling on and off. Narrowed it down to the 24 power connector cable. Plug both the 14 and 10 pin connectors into the power supply and hit the self test button and the green light does not light. Unhook (either) the 14 or 10 pin connector and hit the self test button and the green light goes on. Put in a service ticket with corsair December 27th and so far just dead silence.

Other Thoughts: This seems to be a problem on this psu as i have read.

1 out of 5 eggsFaulty PSU

This review is from: CORSAIR AXi series AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: None.

Cons: I built my system, installed this PSU, and fired it up. The system was working perfectly, so I started a large file download that would take a few hours, and I went to bed. The next morning, I got up to check on the download. The computer was off. I tried to power cycle it, but to no avail. I popped off the front panel to take a look, and lo and behold, my AX1200i's red self-test LED was lit. A quick google search confirms that this is a common issue with this PSU (just search for "corsair ax1200i red light), and the only solution appears to be a new unit. I was really expecting more from a reputable company like Corsair. Needless to say, I'll never be purchasing one of their PSUs again.

Other Thoughts: TL;DR

Very unreliable unit. Don't waste your money on this defective piece of hardware.

4 out of 5 eggsIt does well

This review is from: CORSAIR AXi series AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: - Plenty of juice and then some
- Pretty
- Superb packaging as always
- Enough cables to hook up even most elaborate setup
- No noise whatsoever

Cons: I like the PSU but here's why I'm knocking an egg (it is also true of every single Corsair PSU):
- Modular cable connectors

What's wrong with them? Nothing. Except Corsair's money grabbing habit of making them different across all PSU series. While there may be a valid reason for differentiating the connectors for performance certification reason, someone please explain to me how would that be even remotely the case for SATA/Molex power? No, there's no reason, they're the same freaking cables.

I've got 4 Corsair PSUs, as it happens bought at different point in time + 2 others that have been long retired one of which this unit replaces. Some cables have been customized for the builds and now when upgrading the PSU the same has to be done all over again. And those old or leftover cables, instead of being reused end up in a landfill. Way to think of the environment Corsair, I hope it's worth your three-fitty.

Other Thoughts: A minor quip: The Corsair Link cable uses a USB header connector cable. In case you haven't noticed Corsair: USB 2.0 is on its way out and many Mobos will have 2 of those at most. One will obviously go to the case panel and then 1 spare can be used for whatever. That whatever in my case was Corsair's hydro cooler so there's no place to connect the PSU to. Not a big deal cause the Corsair Link software is so ugly that my computer shut down in disgust 5 seconds after I opened it, so I'm not using it anyways but as a matter of principal, including a USB header splitter or pass-thru connector would be nice given that their other products want to use it as well.

1 out of 5 eggsHad to replace after 60 days ...

This review is from: CORSAIR AXi series AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Cable connectors are better than competitors. Quiet.

Cons: Computer began to intermittently lose power about 45 days after first use. Check and re-seated all connectors. Power supply was plugged into UPS w/AVR and on dedicated 20amp circuit. Gradually became more frequent. Replaced with different PS and problem is gone. Deferring to Corsair for replacement but reluctant to use Corsair PS on my production PC again. Wasted much time plus costs to replace with another PS to find that this power supply is the cause of PC failures.

Other Thoughts: I paid allot of money hoping not to have the problems I encountered with this power supply.

3 out of 5 eggsIrritating sound

This review is from: CORSAIR AXi series AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Solid build, a ton of power, and Corsair link is awesome.

Cons: I've owned it for 2 years. Makes an annoying knocking noise every 5 seconds even when the fan is off. When running a completely silent build with a custom water loop a knocking noise can drive someone mad. Reinstalled my AX850 and the noise is gone.

5 out of 5 eggsI have the power!

This review is from: CORSAIR AXi series AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Excellent unit. Stays very cool so the fan is off most of the time which makes the unit very quiet. Plenty of cables for just about any set up. Corsair Link is really cool.

Cons: None so far.
