Review Roundup: Week ending 8/15/2014

CORSAIR Technical Marketing

This week, Corsair launched the long awaited HXi Series of power supplies. The HXi features 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, full modularity, a fluid dynamic bearing intake fan with a Zero RPM mode that keeps the fan from spinning until loads exceed 40% of the PSU's capability, and Corsair Link compatibility.


The HXi is available in 750W, 850W and 1000W versions, with a 1200W due out later this year. Both 750W and 1000W units made it out for review.

The HX750i was reviewed at both Guru3D and Sweclockers.

In Guru3D's conclusion, they said, "If you like to be a power efficient, seek quality with that geeky modular design combined sheer silence, then the HX750i might just be what your tech-doctor has ordered. It is an impressive power supply from A to Z and we can't really find anything that concerns us (believe we tried to find something!)."

They awarded us with a "Top Pick" award.


Over in Sweden, Sweclockers found the HX750i to have stable voltage regulation, top class ripple suppresion, extremely high efficiency, found it to be very silent and awarded us with the rare "ToppKlass" award.


If a higher wattage is what you're looking for, look no further than the HX1000i. This unit was reviewed by Overclock3D and Kitguru this week.

Overclock3D produced a video showing the HX100i being run through its paces using a SunMoon SM-5500 load tester.

The HX1000i was awarded Overclock3D's Gold Award.



KitGuru also had a look at the HX1000i. They found it to be a competitively priced 80 Plus Platinum unit that is well built, looks great, with first class modular cables and excellent voltage regulation. They found the HX1000i to be very quiet and appreciate the fact that Corsair offers a 7 year warranty on the unit.

In the end, KitGuru awarded Corsair with a "Worth Buying" award.


Over in the Netherlands, Hardware.Info reviewed both the HX750i and HX1000i together.

Both units received their "Gold Award".


Of course, the HXi Series wasn't the only PSUs reviewed recently. France's Conseil Config had a look at Corsair's CS450M.

They appreciated the voltage stability, the low noise and efficiency and awarded the CS450M with 4.5 out of 5 stars.


Other Corsair components have been reviewed recently as well.

Over in France, Les Numeriques reviewed the M45 Raptor mouse.


They liked the feel of soft touch surface and found the optical sensor to be very responsive. They awarded Corsair's M45 with four out of five stars.

Finally, the Voyager Air 2 gets gone over by Joanne Tech Lover on her YouTube channel. You can catch that video here:

Today was also the day the embargo was lifted on our new Air 240 case. We anticipate a number of reviews over the next few days, so please keep your eyes peeled for a special edition of the Review Roundup next week that will feature nothing by Air 240 reviews.
