5 out of 5 eggsNice unit, plenty of power

This review is from: CORSAIR RM Series RM1000 1000W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Corsair RM1000 Power Supply

Pros: Nice PSU. Very efficient. Fan only turns on when it needs to, and even when it is on, it is very quiet.

Cons: Flat cables aren't quite as flexible as some sleeved ones. Also, the pin-out on them is not the same as some other manufacturers. Don't use other company cables on this PSU. But this isn't enough of a con to drop off any points.

Other Thoughts: I'm using two of these to power a system with 6 video cards. I've been running it for about 8 months with no problems at all power wise. I am also running 220V rather than 110V for that little bit extra power efficiency to save on the power bill.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat fan?

This review is from: CORSAIR RM Series RM1000 1000W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Corsair RM1000 Power Supply

Pros: I LOVE FULL MODULAR.

I bought this 1000W PSU out of a bug with the NEWEGG.com PSU estimator tool. My graphics card "required a minimum of 800W" as told by the tool so being a first time builder i said ok and just bought it.
few days later a veteran builder said he has a simalar spec'd build and runs a 500W PSU...well here i am with an overkill of a PSU when i only needed to buy a 650 or below.

I have nothing bad to say about this PSU however. the zero fan mode it comes is amazing. because i have such little draw the fan has never turned on and tempreture has never been an issue.

would highly recommend this PSU for first time builders because now i have a PSU that has given me room to grow.

Cons: not really a con...

There are so many power cords that this came with and i have so many extra that i know have the original box, filled with these cords, under my desk taking up valuable leg room.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 2 weeks

This review is from: CORSAIR RM Series RM1000 1000W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Corsair RM1000 Power Supply

Pros: Worked great for 2 weeks, then died.

Cons: Listen to the reviews! Just like the reviews said, mine died after two weeks. Even though this unit had many reviews of DOA or dying after a few days, I bought it anyway as the price was good and I have had good experience in the past with Corsair products. My fault, as I have several computer builds in my home, I waited a couple of months before installing it. Now it is out of Newegg's return window. As soon as I replaced it with a year old Corsair HX750 that I was saving for another build, this computer was back up an running in a matter of minutes.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, quiet PSU

This review is from: CORSAIR RM Series RM1000 1000W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Corsair RM1000 Power Supply

Pros: Cables are well labelled.
Decent manual.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Fan doesn't power on at low usage level. The manufacturer was smart enough to point that out so customers wouldn't freak and think the PSU was DOA.

4 out of 5 eggsCORSAIR RM1000

This review is from: CORSAIR RM Series RM1000 1000W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Corsair RM1000 Power Supply

Pros: 100% Modular, Single 12v Rail, (runs it all), Long Flat-wire Cables, Quiet, Efficient.

The 3000 character limit would hold back this full review and explanation of the issues, I placed the first part of the review in the “Pro section, and the second part continues in the “Con” section.

I was deciding between the Corsair RM 1000 and a comparably priced EVGA 1000 watt PSU. After spending WAY TOO MUCH time researching the reviews for both, I chose the Corsair because it had the "Flat-Wire" cables.

I figured the cable management would be easier because I could hide them in the back. That was really the only reason when it came down to it because otherwise, the reviews were all pretty much equal. After running the “paperclip test”, I started installing the PSU I realized right away that the Flat-wire cables were stiff and not at all as easy to work with as I thought they would be.

They were all plenty long enough to reach everything in my Corsair 500R case but they didn’t twist and bend the way I needed them to. So I used the 24 Pin Flat-wire Cable because that one definitely helped the cable management, and I used the OCZ 700w cables for the rest of the connection work.

It wasn’t until I finished and plugged the PSU in to make sure everything turned on, that I had begun a multi-hour learning curve on ‘why I couldn’t use the OCZ cables in the RM 1000’. The short answer is that the OCZ 700 watt PSU was a (4), 12v-rail system and the RM 1000 is a Single 12v Rail system.

I knew the RM 1000 was a Single 12v rail PSU. In fact, most of the new PSU’s these days have applied the latest technology that now permits a single 12v rail PSU to deliver the same constant power to any and all those components that require it.

This ‘new’ single rail mentality adds to better efficiency, and less heat and I for one, am all for it. However, there was no indication in any paperwork or on the Corsair website that warned me about the possible compatibility issues if one was to use multi-12v rail PSU cables in a Single 12v rail system.

As a result, the first time I turned on the power after completing the cable connections and routing, (with my OCZ cables), I noticed that two of my 120mm Excalibur Case fans weren’t spinning.Yet, 3 of the 4 other Excalibur 120mm fans were and they were all connected to the same fan-connector junction plate. A closer look revealed that one of the fans was getting a hint of power because the blades would make an attempt to spin and then stop after only moving a quarter inch .

I can go on about this in detail but I’m approaching my max character limit. So I’ll say this, I had begun to suspect that there was a compatibility problem and not a DOA PSU when I noticed how may various case fans, (as well as my H220 Cooling pump), would not run, or would spin-up slowly.

There were other ‘hints’ like the system would fold and shut down after I booted to the monitor. A “lesser man” would have attributed the issue/s to a DOA

Cons: REVIEW Part 2 (Continued from "Pro" section)

Not me, I took it personal and wanted to know why I was having this trouble and after a few hours, I decided to look into the ends of the OCZ cables connector and compare it to the RM 1000’s replacement.

EVERY one of the OCZ cable connectors had one less contact within the configuration. NOT ONLY THAT, but most, if not all, of the OCZ Cable connector’s contacts had at least one contact out of place in the configuration when compared to the RM 1000’s configuration of the comparable cable!

EVEN the 8pin + 6Pin connectors in the R 7970 GPU were different between the two cables! I conceded, and replaced all of my OCZ cables that were installed to the RM 1000’s ports with the stiff, Flat-wire cables. These often had superfluous, additional connector plug inclusions, (the 8 pin + 6 Pin PCIE cable for the Graphics card had an additional 2 pin plug that, in my case, were not needed for the R 7970 card), leaving unconnected plugs hanging in the air for all to see.

Corsair included a cable set for their “C Link” monitoring software. I had to remove that connection as well because I believe it attributed to other strange anomalies. The latest software download for C-Link was apparently released just before I bought the RM 1000.

The Corsair website forum was slammed with people who complained of all kinds of problems with the latest version of that program. They were describing issues that made me wonder if this was REALLY my problem all along!

However, I dismissed that as a remote possibility and at this time, believe the missing, repositioned contacts in the OCZ cables when compared to those of the RM 1000, was the main problem. I must admit and note that it wasn’t until I removed the C-Link software and the cable that connected the PSU to the mobo via a USB port, that ALL the “strange, small issues” were extinguished.

The bottom line is that I have no problems with The RM 1000 since I sorted that out. I typically OC my i7-2600K to 5GHz and my 7970 to 1100 MHz core and 1500 MHz memory, when I run my Flight Sim. The PSU holds up for hours with no sign of trouble and that’s what it needs to do.

The 4 stars instead of 5 is for Corsair’s lack of considering that some people may want to use their cables from an older PSU. They made no effort to warn about the possible cable configuration compatibility that may be an issue in cases involving multi-rail system cables.

Other Thoughts: I have a number of Corsair products and I consider them to be a pretty good manufacturer of computer components. Nevertheless, they've always struck me as a company that wasn't interested in explaining very much in there paperwork unless it had something to do with self-promotions.

In other words, you need to have a decent idea of what's going on if, and when, you buy many of the Corsair products that I've bought. "You're on your own, kid" is the motto I tend to think of when I buy from Corsair.

Oh sure, they'll honor warranties and quickly process RMA's if needed, but I consider Customer Support to include trying to sort out the problem and dealing with it as if the tech was the one who owned the item in question.

You know, they should put themselves in the buyer's shoes when they're dealing with them. I did get a reply once or twice when I went to the forum with the issue regarding the Cables and the C Link software. However, whomever it was that was answering left me wondering who they were, (I never knew whom I was talking to, a name please!).

Perhaps more importantly was the fact that they answered the question in a vague way and then wouldn't reply any longer when I asked them for clarification, or if their answer spurned another question to deal with.

CS & S is top priority in my book and the star I took off on this PSU was way less than I should have removed. However, the end result is that the PSU does what it's supposed to do and it does it well, and quietly.

5 out of 5 eggsFreaking Amazing!

This review is from: CORSAIR RM Series RM1000 1000W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Corsair RM1000 Power Supply

Pros: It works perfectly.
It is a lot smaller than I originally would have thought it would be. I went from a HX-750w to this RM-1000 and the RM-1000 is a lot smaller than the HX-750w. I love it though. I also bought the Corsair custom sleeved cables to go with this( not from newegg though) and they fit perfect and work well. I haven't had a single problem with this at all!

Cons: Absolutely no Cons about this.

Other Thoughts: I may have gone a little overboard with how much power I needed for my system. But this powers my build which is:
FX-8350 CPU (4.0 Ghz)
Thermaltake Water 3.0 CPU Cooler
Gigabyte 990FX-UD3 Motherboard
G.Skill Z Series 16GB RAM 2133
XFX R9 270x Double-D Edition GPU
2xSamsung 840 EVO 250Gb SSD
WD 1TB 7200RPM HDD
LG Blu-Ray/DVD Optical Drive
4x200mm fans
2x120mm fans
2x140mm fans
Kingston Hyper X Ram Cooler

5 out of 5 eggsBeastly

This review is from: CORSAIR RM Series RM1000 1000W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Corsair RM1000 Power Supply

Pros: Silent operation, runs cool, plenty of cables, modular cables allows for easy cable management, the color goes with my build.

Cons: It's cheaper now than what it was 3 months ago.

Other Thoughts: Although 1000w is overkill for me, I needed something powerful enough for multiple overclocked GPUs and a highly overclocked CPU. I felt safer with a high overhead than running close to 100%. I don't think I have ever heard the fan kick on since it's at the bottom and facing down.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

This review is from: CORSAIR RM Series RM1000 1000W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Corsair RM1000 Power Supply

Pros: Great product. I owned multiple PSU's throughout my gaming experience and from different companies. Corsair is to be trusted. Best part are the Connector compatibility between other Corsair PSU models. Big plus. You get what you pay for.

Cons: A little pricey, could always go cheaper, but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Runs a little warm during Crossfire mode. If there was a Fan/Cooling setting i could fix or tweak with, that would be a great improvement.

This review is from: CORSAIR RM Series RM1000 1000W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Corsair RM1000 Power Supply

Pros: Great psu, had no problems for a month.

Cons: Psu suddenly died - not under heavy load. I get that sometimes it happens, so I'm not knocking an egg off for that. I am knocking an egg for corsair making me pay for an rma shipping label.
