Corsair RM1000x 1000W 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Review
Corsair ditches its Corsair Link integration with the new RM1000x and the result is a great unit at a lower price point.

Introduction

Ever since the release of the Corsair AX1200i digital power supply, we've seen a steady stream of digital power supplies bearing the Corsair logo. They have been revamping most of their products and as such, it seems only fitting that they add more features in an attempt to stay ahead of the competition. This includes the RMi series of units which is meant to be a rock solid unit without the bleeding edge price of a top end enthusiast units. We reviewed the RM1000i when it launched, and it proved to be a good unit.

 

 

The problem with adding more features is that it typically adds to the cost. On top of the added cost, some people simply prefer to have a simpler unit with fewer features. Think of it as a "simpler is easier" mantra. Enter the new RMx series from Corsair. It features the same build quality and performance as the RMi series, sans the digital control/monitoring from Corsair Link.

 

Corsair touts the same performance yet a lower price and let's face it, for most, they simply want the best bang for their buck. Let's start getting into this unit to see if that is just what it delivers.
