Hi there I would love to hear some of you guys opinion on which PSU I should get. My current PSU the Ax860i is experiencing some issues at the moment and I have submitted a request with Corsair to process an RMA. The Corsair rep told me that the Ax860i is currently discontinued so there offering me two options the Hx1000i 80 Plus Platinum or the Ax850 80 Plus Titanium. Which one would be the better choice and have you guys heard any good things about either of these PSUs.

Hey jonny thank you for the reply, why would you choose the hx1000i over the ax850 ?

 

Because it's better?

 

The AX has efficiency going for it. That's it. Just efficiency. It's 80 PLUS Titanium vs. Platinum. But efficiency doesn't make for a better PSU.

 

The HX has a better fan, better build quality, is more robustly built, has the iCUE functionality..... I mean.. it's just an all around better PSU... except for efficiency.
