Corsair HX1050 1050 Watt Power Supply Review

Inside the Box




Sliding things out of the box, we find that the power supply is well protected by lots of foam and everything is snugly in place so that it doesn't slide around.




Removing the power supply from its felt bag reveals a familiar matte black finish as we've seen with many of Corsair's PSUs. On top of the HX1050 sits the I/O specification label.




Both sides bear the Corsair logo and HX1050 identification.




Turning things towards the front, we find the modular connections. Native cables entering the power supply go all the way inside the unit and are well protected by the grommet in the opening.




At the back we find a massive toggle switch and the standard honeycomb mesh grill that allows for hot air to be vented from the unit.




Cooling the HX1050 is a 140mm fan with wire grill. The use of a non-standard grill looks great with the design of the power supply.




Plenty of modular cables are included with the HX1050. It is great of Corsair to realize that floppy connectors are not needed any more and simply include Molex to FDD adapters.




Also included in the box are the user manual, power cable, cable ties, mounting screws and a case badge.
