Pros - Powerful - Silent - Great Aesthetics - Great Value - Modular
Cons - Not platinum certified - MIR is a pain
Summary My former Corsair 850W did seem to lack the required juice once my 3770K and Titan SLI were all heavily overclocked. The last few weeks have shown that the XFX 1050W has enough power for my system.
This power supply is really a bargain at the price. The electronics are made by Seasonic which is in my opinion the best power supply manufacturer. I really enjoy the fact that the cables are modular which helps for air circulation.
The only downside is the MIR. I believe that XFX will send a americanexpress gift card which is not widely accepted. That is of course assuming that I will received the gift card...
Pros Hybrid fan control(manually switchable) - same as Seasonic X-1050 Modular design 3 dedicated PCI-E power output slots for 3 GPU's Heavy gauge wiring Under the skin its a Seasonic X-1050 Picked it up for $129.99 with rebate from XFX
Cons 5yr XFX warranty vs Seasonic X-1050 7yr warranty
Summary Excellent PSU, extremely quiet even with the fan going at under 50% load. Using it to power Gigabyte P67X board, two nVidia GTX550Ti's in SLI, plus six 3TB hardrives, LG Bluray burner, Sb soundcard, Intel i5 2500K.
Pros Looks good No LED fan Fully modular You can use both 8 pin EPS connectors and all 6 PCI-E 6+2 pin connectors at the same time should you need to Have not noticed any coil whine Cables are long enough to reach the top of my XL-ATX case but are ugly so I used extentions anyways.
Cons The cables are pretty stiff (also a pro because they used thicker wires I think.) Both the cables that contain only 2 connectors, 2x molex and 2x sata, are very short and will not reach top mounted optical drive bays in most cases (no pun intended)
Summary I bought this to replace an older PC power & cooling 750W powersupply after it started whining when I made my new build. The new build only draws 470W from the wall under load but this will give me room to grow. my system for refrence is 3570K d4.7GHz, Sabertooth z77, 16GB 1600MHz Ram, 2x560TI 448 d 900MHz core, 3x 1tb WD Black Raid 5, 240GB Mushkin Cronos Deluxe, 6 120mm fans and a 230mm fan, oh and H100 with push/pull.
Pros Awesome look High wattage Tons of cables Fully Modular Semi-sleeved cables.
Cons Would like to see fully sleeved (tip to tip) cables. Rear XFX emblem is upside down in my 800D (my OCD is crying)
Summary Just enjoying the look as of now. System hasnt been on yet due to missing parts. Hopefully all will go well
Edit: It powered up long enough to install windows then randomly shut off and never powered up again. XFX was quick with an RMA though. Hopefully its on their end and not mine :S. So my new rig will have to wait another 2-3 weeks probably... For this I remove 1 star! (insert angry face here)
