Corsair HX1050 Power Supply Review

Review Score:
1 Flares 1 Flares ×

Corsair have built up a great reputation over the years, and their power supplies have always scored very highly on KitGuru, with the AX range setting a new benchmark standard. Today we are looking at the new HX1050, the replacement for the successful HX1000 unit. Should this be on your shortlist for a new system upgrade?

The HX1050 on paper certainly looks impressive. It offers 80 Plus Silver Certification and it features a strong 12V rail able to output the full 1050W – 87.5A. Corsair are confident that the unit will last a very long time, as they are giving a 7 year warranty with the product.

The Corsair HX1050 utilizes advanced DC-to-DC circuitry and Corsair claim that it exceeds 80 PLUS Silver certification standards, with up to 88% energy efficiency (115v). With a semi modular design, 140mm low noise fan, 50c qualification and an asking price of around £160, this might very well be one of the best value for money power supplies on the market.

    another winner by the looks of it, nice price point. I remember I paid the same for a 850W. even if it was gold certified.

    hard to fault their power supplies. Quick question,. are they really a custom design or do CWT just build them to specification for corsair?

    I read on another site that Corsair get the CWT designs and then tweak it ‘in house’? this would mean it is a more a Corsair/CWT joint design right?

    They dont often drop the ball, and although they dont really seem to make anything themselves, they work with some great partners and force high standards.
