Corsair HX1050 Power Supply Review

The HX1050 arrives in a very stylish box with a close up image of the fan and product details underneath.


Inside, the power supply is protected between thick foam inserts. There is a manual for the new range on top also.

Corsair supply a good bundle with the product. There is a region specific power cable, a felt bag for cable storage and mounting screws, a badge and cable tidies for the system build.

There are plenty of flat, low profile modular cables supplied, with the ability to power 3 high end graphics cards, 6x 6+2 pin PCI E power connectors are supplied. There are also 2 x 8 pin EPS12V connectors for higher demand system builds.

    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.

  • Brooke

    Their PSU’s are great, still have one I bought a few years ago, its been on 24/7 for two years now.

  • Frankinberger

    ill be looking at the 850W in this range in a few months……… hopefully its priced well (ideally £120 or less!)

    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?

  • Davis

    Excllent, another good one for a more mainstream audience

  • Thomas

    I need a new psu, 850w just as good in this range?

  • Peter

    Not for me, i boight their 1200w ax psu in jan, love it, great for my sli 590s

  • Colin

    I can recommend their power supplies, I have an AX and I love it.

    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.
