Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The Corsair Professional Series HX1050 power supply delivers good efficiency with clean DC outputs and good voltage regulation. Under normal operating conditions the power supply is very quiet. The HX1050 comes with a good assortment of all-modular cables that can support the latest CPUs and multiple, high-end video cards along with active PFC, universal AC input and a 7-year warranty. Overall, the Corsair HX1050 is very good power supply in its price range. Of course if you want even better performance (80 Plus Gold efficiency, even cleaner DC outputs and tighter voltage regulation) Corsair’s Professional Series Gold is available (AX650 thru AX1200) for few more dollars.
The Corsair Professional Series HX1050 power supply is currently available and typically sells for around $224 USD (Amazon.com August 2011).
