Excerpt: Corsair has been on a massive refresh of their various series of power supplies. We've covered just about everything they have to offer from the low output CX430V2 to the massive AX1200 and many in between. Today we are taking a look at another one of their higher end power supplies, the HX1050. As a part of Corsair's Professional series of power supplies, it is intended for those who demand high performance and high reliability.
Excerpt: Back when Corsair's HX1000 power supply came out, it was the highest powered unit they had. Indeed, it was one of the most powerful and impressive units in its day. Even now, it remains a popular unit for those needing gobs of power at a good price. But time hasn't stopped for anyone, and the market has changed. Not about to be left behind, Corsair is now looking to replace that aging unit with something new - the HX1050. It's time to find out what's changed.
Summary: Corsair's HX1050 addresses the users that can not afford the high price of the mighty AX1200 or simply don't need 1200W of power. The successor of the legendary HX1000W uses a completely different platform, which grants it almost Gold efficiency levels and ultra low ripple on all rails.
Pros: Handled full power at 50°C ambient, High efficiency, +12V rail remained within 3% regulation range, Excellent ripple/noise suppression, All measured rails registered low voltage drops during Advanced Transient Response Tests (however 3.3V almost failed in the 2nd one), Lots of connectors, including six PCIe and two EPS, Seven years warranty
Cons: High price, Worse than 3% voltage regulation (5V & 3.3V), Not all PCIe & EPS connectors can be used at the same time
Conclusion: Das Corsair HX1050 soll die Benutzer ansprechen, die viele Leistungsreserven für ihren Computer benötigen, aber gleichzeitig sparsam mit ihrem Geld haushalten müssen. Durch die vergleichsweise niedrige 80Plus Silber Zertifizierung sowie die Wegrationalisierungen von elektronischen Finessen schafft es Corsair auch, diese Nutzergruppe anzusprechen.
Summary: Das Corsair HX1050 Netzteil entstammt der Professional Serie und bildet innerhalb dieser Serie auch das Schwergewicht in Sachen Ausgangsleistung. Neben einer 80PLUS Silber Zertifizierung und Kabelmanagement soll das HX1050 vor allem genügend Kraft für Enthusiasten bieten. Neben dem Modell mit 1.050 Watt Leistung ist die HX-Serie auch mit 650, 750 und 850 Watt Leistung erhältlich.
