A Detailed Look
The Corsair Professional Series HX1050 power supply enclosure is painted matte black and measures 180mm (7.2”) deep. It uses a single 140mm fan on the bottom for cooling. The dual ball bearing Yate Loon Electronics fan (D14BH-12) is designed to provide excellent airflow and is rated for 0.70A at 12VDC.
The HX1050 PSU features a large master On-Off switch on the back panel along with an AC receptacle and an open honeycomb grill that allows the exhaust air to exit the power supply with minimal resistance.
Around on the other end, the front panel incorporates 10 modular cable connectors. They are color coded and sized so only the proper cables will plug into their corresponding sockets.
The Corsair Professional Series HX1050 power supply comes with a good assortment of fixed and modular cables and connectors. All of the cables are covered with braided plastic mesh sleeving. The cables range in length from approximately 16" to 23" long (to the first connector).
In addition to the four fixed cables, there are 13 modular cables that can be used in various configurations. Up to six PCI-E connectors are available, although you can only use five if you need the second EPS12V 8-pin cable.
