Corsair HX1050 Power Supply Review

The Corsair HX1050 is shipped inside a plastic protective cover, which is underneath a felt pouch. You certainly cannot say they haven’t covered all bases for potential rough shipping.

The power supply is a very understated unit, ideal for many systems and is finished with an anti scratch matt paint which won’t mark easily. This isn’t a pure modular design, so there are a handful of cables feeding out from the chassis.

The power supply is fully vented to offer adequate cooling under heavy load. There is a power switch and a connector at the side.

The modular cable headers are colour coded and labelled to ensure a system build is as painless as possible.

A large 140mm fan takes centerstage at the top of the unit. No gaudy gold paintjobs either, just plain black. We will look more at the fan when we open the case shortly.
