    ONLY USE SUPPLIED CABLES

    As with most Corsair products I've purchased, this power supply feels well-made. I'm unlikely to have much use for the cheap draw-string bag it came in, but the velcro flap pouch for the modular cables seems like a good way to keep them together if you're not immediately using all of them: because YOU MUST NOT INTERCHANGE MODULAR CABLES. Apparently, there is not a "standard" pinout for these: so do not assume that cables from a different modular supply will work, or you might end up replacing hard drives or even your mainboard. (I'd seen the custom kits for people who want to add color by swapping out their cables for fancy ones, and mistakenly thought that meant that I could avoid wrecking my neat cable management job. 16TB of cooked drives, a dead burner, and one frotzed GIGABYTE board later, it is NOT a mistake I'll make again.)

    Make Sure You Have Enough Room

    This power supply is large, so make sure you have a case with sufficient room behind the power supply to plugin the power cables and route. I mounted the PS in a Cooler Master tower case, make sure you have the power cables plugged into the PS, I had a hard time getting it into the allotted space in the case, if the cables had not been attached I would have had to remove the PS, attach the cables and reinsert. Once I had the PS mounted with cables attached, everything went smoothly after that.

    Powerful and stable modular PSU

    I purchased the Corsair RM 1000x to replace a 10 year old failing PSU. This beast is driving three GPUs (2 RX 580 and 1 GTX 1080) on an i7 Skylake Z170 board with plenty of other peripherals connected. Even still there are several unused rails. It doesn't break a sweat and runs near silently. Rock solid voltages. This unit is hefty without being over-sized. It has only been a month but so far I am very pleased with it.

    The fans don't spin unless absolutely needed this thing is so quiet I thought it wasn't working but it really does. For the price and capability, it's worth it. Not worth it for SLI setups or crossfire but who uses these combos anymore other than to show off their rigs? Handles any GPU you throw at it. Would buy again for new build. I only trust this brand for PSU. Best buy had the best sale deals so I picked this up in store.

    Aside from no real way to test this if something ELSE is wrong when you build a PC, its an perfect and well built Power Supply! The cords/cables on this model are thicker and round, you might want to go with the 1200xi... If you need to “test” this you cant do the paper clip test as ALL wires are black, just fyi..

    Straightforward/High Function

    Installation was simple and straightforward. It came with everything I needed to install right away. I was able to get up and running in minutes. No issues and had more than enough power for all components. Runs silently most of the time with only a little increase in noise when fan runs. Perfect for my PC setup.

    My gaming desktop just failed on me. Why? Old power supply that wasn't very high end to begin with. This power supply feels quality. Braided cables, plenty of head room for overclocking and components. SLI, i9, 32 GB of RAM and multiple VMs running nearly 24/7.

    Excellent modular PSU with lots of connections

    I replaced an old PSU on my i7 system, and everything seems happier. Only possible negative is the slight short distance between SATA headers on the same cable, in case you’re connecting two or more hard drives stacked on top of each other. A little tight but still usable.

    Solid Power Delivery

    The power supply has two 8 pin EPS connectors. The power delivery was stable and the unit ran quite. The 24 pin cable is somewhat thick so depending on your routing and case openings it may not be the easiest to bend/connect.

    This unit works great, and has been powering my rig for over a month now. Wattage meters shows its operating at the expected input, and the modular cables made it really easy to install. I would recommend this unit or the rm1000i if they’re available.

    This power supply is more than capable of providing constant, steady voltages for any computer load, especially over-clocked. I don't drive my vette 150 mph, but it is nice to know I could.

    Completly modular, so you can pick and choose your cables needed for your PC build. Price isnt bad. Watts are great if you plan on using RGB fans or lights. A

    Great for my gaming system. However I would have preferred the cables to be flat. The cables were tough to fit into the case but I managed.

    This thing is beefy! Modular setup made it possible to run all components in the PC. And the wraped wires look and feel great.
