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.

HyperX Alloy Elite Gaming keyboard unboxing with Ed Baily

Its worth pointing out that this particular keyboard is not full RGB (they have the Alloy Elite RGB for that), however for an extra £20 spend over the Alloy FPS you get a wrist rest, volume slider, dedicated media keys and one button LED controls. Seems like money well spent to us.

    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.

    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.

  • Forrest

    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.
