Corsair AX1200i Digital ATX 1200-watt Power Supply Review

Inside the Box




The unit is packed well inside the box with an inch of foam around the entire unit. Modular cables and accessories take up the rest of the space and make for a snug fit. The anti-static bag contains the Corsair Link USB dongle.




Pulling things out of the box reveals that things aren't as convoluted as they appear. The 8GB Corsair Flash Voyager mini contains a PSU test report from the factory. Also included are several zip ties, mounting screws and a case badge.




Pulling the power supply out of the felt bag gives us a great look at the finish on the unit as well as the I/O specification label.




One side displays the AX2100i logo.




The other side is identical except the log is inverted in so that the label can be displayed properly no matter where it is mounted inside the case.




On the back we find the standard honeycomb mesh exhaust grill with AC input and heavy duty rocker switch.




The modular connections on the front are labeled neatly. There is no need to list what rails are as the unit only has a single 12V rail. The comm port is the connection to the Corsair Link cable. There is also a self-test button on the front. This allows you to test the unit without connecting it to any components. Just plug in the power and press the button. If the light goes green, it is good to go. Otherwise, it will go red to let you know there is a problem.




Flipping over to the bottom we find the 140mm fan that provides cooling for the AX1200i.




The AX1200i is fully modular. All cables are either fully sleeved or of the flat ribbon type.




Rounding out the contents of the box are the AX1200i user manual and the paper telling you where to go download the latest version of the Corsair Link software. It would be nice to see them include a copy of the software on the flash drive since the text file only takes up 249KB of space.
