Final Thoughts and Conclusions
Corsair is well known for producing some of the best PC power supplies on the market today and the AX1200 continues that trend.  The Corsair Professional Series Gold AX1200 power supply delivers clean DC outputs, with excellent efficiency and good voltage regulation.  Under normal operating conditions (below 600W load) the AX1200 is relatively quiet.  The AX1200 comes with an excellent assortment of all-modular cables that can support the latest CPUs and multiple, high-end video cards.  And let’s not forget active PFC, universal AC input and Corsair’s 7-year warranty!

The Corsair AX1200 power supply should be available in August 2010 with a MSRP of $329 USD.
