BFG Tech has taken a whole new approach to computer power supplies with the EX-1200 power supply.

Most power supplies are inefficient at lower loads, making it difficult to plan for future expansion while maintaining a green initiative. By using Frequency Conversion technology, the EX-1200 power supply can actually emulate virtually any size power supply and therefore be at least 80% efficient, even with loads as low as 10% of the unit's maximum capability.

The EX-1200 has the lowest minimum load requirements and the best +5VSB efficiency on the market. Plus, it uses all Japanese capacitors for longer life and gold-plated pins for improved conductivity.

  • newegg ATX12V and EPS12V Compatible Compatible with the ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V v2.91 standards, the BFG Tech EX-1200 provides maximum power stability to drive the latest Intel and AMD processors as well as other components for desktop and server computer systems.
  • newegg 1200W Continuous Power A continuous power of 1200W delivers safe, reliable output for even the most extreme computer systems. Four industry-leading independent +12v rails are provided for more stable and safer power output.
  • newegg 80 Plus Certified The 80 PLUS certified power supply provides high power efficiency of at least 80% at any load between 20% and 100%, saving your money on your electrical bill, reducing heat in your computer's system and prolonging its life.
  • newegg 135mm Cooling Fan with BFG Thermal Control Technology The large 135mm intake fan increases overall airflow in the power supply to ensure operation stability. With BFG thermal control technology, the fan slows down during regular operation to reduce unnecessary noise.
  • newegg Modular Cable Design The modular cable design allows use of only the cables you need resulting in improved internal airflow and reduced system clutter.
  • newegg Six PCI Express Connectors The BFG Tech EX-1200 features six PCI Express power connectors (three 6-pin and three 6+2-pin) to support high-end graphics cards for extreme multi-GPU performance.

5 out of 5 eggsBest psu i have ever had.

Pros: Plenty of wattage regardless of what you have in your pc. When im just surfing the web my pc only pulls about 260 watts and the most i have ever had it pulled because of my hardware was 800 watts.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I didnt really like the rounding of the cables that much my old coolmasters had, which was flat cables and fit better in my CMStorm case for plugging in the harddrives in the back of the case. Overall they were fine though just a little snugger then i was used to.

5 out of 5 eggsGood PSU

Pros: Lots of power, shouldn't need a new PSU for a long time
Fairly quiet, did not notice any extra noise when I installed it
Plenty of cables included

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: Bought this so that I would not need to worry if I was running close to the edge of my old PSU's limit. I am currently in the process of performing major upgrades, and this thing will have no problem with the new computer either (i7 and ATI 5850)

2 out of 5 eggsBFG = Buncha Freakin' Garbage?

Pros: Seems to power an OC'd Intel i7 860 with two GTX 285s in SLI just fine.

Cons: The bundle of wires in the supply touch the cooling fan and generates an annoying clicking sound--just waiting for it to short out once all the insulation is worn from the wire. They tout the cables as being long. They're not. They're shorter than average. Almost couldn't reach the hard drives. Questionable reliability. Wish I had read these reviews before purchasing.

Other Thoughts: This power supply replaced a Corsair 750w supply. I originally had two GTX 250s in SLI (also BFG), but the fans were annoyingly loud, so I went to the GTX 285 (unfortunately, again, BFG). I thought the Corsair wasn't enough juice for the GTX 285s because I kept getting bad video performance. Turns out the cards were just hitting 100 degrees C! I had to download a third party utility to control the fans (which are now loud again in typical BFG fashion) and ramp the clock & memory settings back to standard levels (BFG felt the need to clock them to an unsustainable level). I'll never buy another BFG product as long as I live. Purchase one of these if you enjoy aggravation. Otherwise, you might want to steer clear.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a Champ!

Pros: 1200 watts. (4) 40amp 12V rails. Worked when I powered it on.

All hard-wired connections were pretty much necessary with my rig except 1 connector which they could have made modular. I think it's time to reduce the amount of molex connectors that are hardwired into a PSU. I could have done with 1 connector period, not 3 daisy chained on one cable. Everything's SATA now and you can daisy chain any fans between themselves.

Cons: Documentation is lacking any substance. The manual was completely useless, but if you read my other thoughts, you will know why they did it. You don't really need to know what 12v rails are assigned to which cables because each PCI-E pair of cables are on their own dedicated 12v rails.

Other Thoughts: The manufacturer is correct when saying you don't need that much documentation, but it would have been nice to state the following somewhere just so we knew they were smart in designing the PSU.

12v Rail 1 = All 12v connections. (Excluding any PCI-E connections, Modular or Hard Wired.)
12v Rail 2 = PCI-E Modular Connector 1
12v Rail 3 = PCI-E Modular Connector 2
12v Rail 4 = Hard Wired PCI-E Connectors.

So if you have each "pair" of PCI-E connectors running to (3) SLI/Crossfire video cards. Each video card would be running on it's own dedicated 40amp 12v rail.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU!!!!!!!

Cons: It doesn't feed my cats in the morning:(

Other Thoughts: I have this power supply ina rig that I built for my sister, it powers everything that I have connected to it without any problems what so ever. For me this is a very reliable power supply.

1 out of 5 eggsQuite a pain to deal with, poor quality

Pros: Lifetime warranty

Cons: Lifetime warranty, you'll spend most of your time replacing this product. I do not own the 1200w, but I do own the 800w, and its performance is sub-par. when my phone is plugged in and charging, the psu struggles to power up, and my system runs at 200w on idle....how does it struggle so much to power on? this is my 2nd replacement, and after requests for an ES800 over their legacy 800 (which is what i keep getting back) they simply will not return my phone calls.

Other Thoughts: Despite this being a "lifetime warranty" product, you will spend a lifetime replacing it. ask anyone who has ever had one die on them, it will not be the first time, BUYER BEWARE, switch to a different brand for higher end PCs

2 out of 5 eggsLifetime Warranty?

Pros: Worked great, while it did

Cons: When the first failed, BFG replaced it quickly. But when the second failed last year, there has been no response to my e-mails and phone calls for another replacement.

Other Thoughts: Paid a lot for it initially thinking it meant better quality, now I know better.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Four 40 Amp 12 Volt rails.
Six modular outputs.
14 AWG power cord.
Off switch.

Cons: There is NO documentation, sheet saying the model number, warranty, how many amps over what volts/rails. Nothing.

How do I know which rails are shared?

IE: Three video cards requiring 49 Amperes each, if I combine two on a shared rail I will only get 40 amps.

Other Thoughts: From what I guess the two rows on the modular plug in are the first and second 12v rails, default PCIe is the third 12v rail, and rest are on the fourth 12v rail.
