The Corsair Professional Series Gold AX1200 is ideal for any high-end gamer or those who simply want to power a vast array of high-end hardware, because it will happily deliver power to a range of system components including the most demanding high-performance PCI Express graphics cards. Under testing, the Corsair AX1200 achieved 100 per cent of the manufacturer's claimed performance based on real-world scenarios involving the most commonly used 12 volt rail. In terms of total efficiency, the Corsair Professional Series Gold AX1200 performed top of its class, beating all other units tested such as the Antec TruePower Quattro 1200 in pretty much all areas. Just to start, the standby efficiency was outstanding, being one of the best performers in this highest-end class. One of the few weaknesses we noted was the slightly elevated decibel noise levels when compared to the best power supplies such as the Thermaltake Toughpower 1500W, which was quieter overall. Thankfully for Corsair, that additional noise was justified because the fan performed excellently, helping to cool the PC efficiently. Reassuringly, the supplied power cables did not significantly heat up during high loads.
Why is the word 'overkill' used so regularly on the forums, with regards to power supply selection? It's a word that could, at times, be equally applied to motherboard, memory and processor selection, so why isn't it? I'll tell you why - because this a site for PC enthusiasts who like to have the latest, the best and most powerful hardware, even if they don't always push it to its full potential. Why are power supplies so different? If a member asks for advice on which power supply will be sufficient to run their proposed new build then give it - although people's opinions will vary. If a member ask for opinions on the best 1200W power supply then give it, but don't go telling them they don't need that much power and they could save some money by going for a 500W unit, because it's not what was asked and it irks some people. It's the member's money at the end of the day and if they want a 1200W power supply for no other reason than because they can, then that's fine by me - that's what enthusiasts do sometimes. A 1200W power supply for a 400W rig brings the added benefits of a stress free, cool running and quiet power supply with a certain level of future proofing, though who knows what's on the horizon?
