Final Thoughts and Conclusions

Corsair took their time and did it right.  The new HX1000W modular power supply is one of the best 1,000W PC power supplies we have tested to date.  The HX1000W PSU provides excellent voltage regulation and delivers clean outputs with very good efficiency.  As if that weren’t enough, the HX1000W does it’s job quietly, is 80Plus and NVIDIA Triple SLI certified, and comes backed with a 5-year warranty and 24/7 support.  Highly recommended!

It’s hard to find anything not to like about the HX1000W.  OK, the original pre-production review unit exhibited a QC problem, which has now been addressed and fixed.

The Corsair HX1000W power supply is currently available and typically sells for around $259.99 USD.
