Cabling Arrangement

Corsair does a good job of providing all of the cables that you should need to fully load down the 1000W provided by the RM1000x. There are four PCI-E cables with two connectors each which should more than take care of any set of video cards that this power supply can handle. Peripherals are given power via three SATA cables with 11 connectors total and two Molex cables with eight connectors total. If an FDD connector is needed, Corsair includes a single Molex to FDD connector.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail. There is no need to worry about load balancing here.

 

 

A Look Inside

Corsair always has a very clean interior layout that provides for excellent airflow within the unit. Three black heat sinks provide all of the passive cooling for the unit.

A pair of Nippon Chemi-Con caps sit on the primary side of the power supply.

The secondary side is filled only with Nippon Chemi-Con caps.

Corsair utilizes their NR135L fan to cool the unit should it get hot enough to kick the fan on.
