The HX1000W is the latest addition to Corsair's award-winning HX-series of modular power supplies. Featuring a twin-transformer, true dual-rail design, DC-to-DC conversion and high-quality solid state capacitors, the HX1000W delivers the rock-solid performance and stability required for high-end enthusiast gaming systems.

Since the product's release in February 2008, the Corsair HX1000W has received numerous awards, such as Hexus' "Extreme Recommended Award," HardOCP's "Editor's Choice Gold Award," and Hardware Canucks' "Dam Good Award."

"Once in a while we receive a product which is so good in every aspect that it makes even the most experienced of us go weak in the knees," stated SKYMTL of Hardware Canucks in his review. "For me, this is exactly what happened when I was in the process of reviewing the Corsair HX1000W."

The Corsair HX1000W has received these awards:
- Custom PC - "Premium Grade Approved" Award
- HardOCP - "Editor's Choice Gold" Award
- Hardwareluxx - "Excellent Hardware" Award
- - "Recommended" Award
- Hardware Canucks - "Dam Good" Award
- Hexus - "Extreme Recommended" Award

"The Corsair HX1000W is a different kind of beast... it's a modular 1,200W PSU in disguise," wrote Tarinder Sandhu of "Guaranteeing a continuous 1kW at 50┬░C, more cables than you can shake a stick at, and, with plenty of beef on the 12V lines, three-way SLI certification in the bag, its credentials are above average. Efficiency, too, is superb, and the under-load lines very strong."

"The Corsair HX1000W is the largest capacity power supply from Corsair to date and by most metrics it is also Corsair's best power supply to date," wrote Paul Johnson of HardOCP. "The HX1000W features very good voltage regulation, excellent DC output quality, a good noise profile given the unit's capacity, and an amazing build quality that features solid capacitors on the secondary."

"The build quality is nothing less than we would expect, as Corsair has a deserved reputation for quality," stated Christoph Katzer of AnandTech. "The stability sets new standards, however, as this unit has the best stability we have experienced so far and the output quality was as good as any we have seen."

The Corsair HX1000W power supply unit (CMPSU-1000HX) is priced at $279.99 USD MSRP, available through Corsair's authorized distributors, resellers and e-tailers worldwide. Corsair's power supplies are backed by a 5-year Limited Warranty, complete customer support via telephone, email, forum and TS Xpress troubleshooting guide.
