One of the first things that you'll notice about the Corsair AX1200 is that it is actually rated for a little bit more than the 1200W that is labelled on the box. It is actually capable of 1204.8W. This is because of the massive 100.4W single 12V rail in the AX1200. Corsair makes sure the 3.3V and 5V rails are beefy as well, with both of them capable of pushing 30A each.

Corsair doesn't skimp on any of the features with the AX1200. It has everything you can find in a power supply. All protections available are included in the AX1200. The power supply is also fully modular, including the 20+4 pin Main connector. A majority of the modular cables are flat ribbon cables. For the few that aren't, they are sleeved. The AX1200 is also rated for 100% continuous output at 50C while still maintaining high enough efficiency to earn it the 80Plus Gold certification.

 

As would be expected from Corsair, the AX1200 is available just about everywhere. The AX1200 comes with an MSRP of $299.99, but can be had for as low as $279.99 if you do some very quick searching. That's quite a hefty chunk of change to be dropping on a power supply, but it is in fact one of the most important components of your computer. Corsair obviously thinks the same way we do about this and backs the AX1200 with an impressive 7-year warranty.
