Even though the company started as a specialist manufacturer of RAM modules, Corsair has also been a major player in the PSU market for years. Nowadays the company offers a very wide range of power related products and their units are usually into every enthusiast's shortlist while browsing for high-end equipment. It would not be new if Corsair released just another high performance unit; however, today we are having a look at the brand new AX1200i, which is something more than a simple power supply. Bearing an 80Plus Platinum certification, boasting extreme performance figures and bringing the all-new Corsair Link DSP interface, Corsair obviously hopes for the AX1200i to become the favorite unit of hardcore enthusiasts. Does it have what it takes to entice the ludicrously demanding target group it aims at? We will find out in this review.
