Corsair HX1500i Platinum Power Supply Review

With new graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia due out soon, concerns have already been raised about how much power they could potentially need. Whether you believe these rumors or not, it’s hard to deny that many recently released PSU models are now departure in the 850W area with more and more going well beyond these allocations as potentially some kind of future measure. – Simply put, buying a PSU right now seems like a tricky business and one that could potentially backfire if you choose wrongly.

With the release of the new Corsair HX1500i, however, this is one power supply that definitely has you covered. – Delivering a whopping 1500 watts of power output, combined with a host of excellent features, this definitely has all the hallmarks of the PSU that it’s just going to be able to handle the next generation of graphics cards, but probably more more to come!

Power supply Corsair HX1500i

This new series of power supplies from Corsair is available in 1000W and 1500W variants. For this review, however, we are specifically going to take a closer look at the latter which not only comes with a loss of power output but also many other great features including; a fully modular cable design, support for the next 5-12 pin PCIe power standard, an 80-Plus Platinum efficiency rating and much more.

Simply put, it’s not your average power supply. For all intents and purposes, the Corsair HX1500i should be considered a high-end design that seeks, where possible, not only to provide you with an excellent and trouble-free power solution, but also to stand the test of the time. !
