Corsair has introduced updated versions of its HX1500i and HX1000i power supplies.
New for 2022, Corsair’s new HX1500i and HX1000i power supplies are fully modular, ultra-low-noise ATX PSUs that are 80 PLUS Platinum-certified. Among the highlights of these power supplies are three EPS12V connectors, a 140 mm fluid dynamic bearing fan with Zero RPM mode for near-silent operation at lower loads, and high-quality Japanese capacitors.
Corsair goes into more detail about these features in its press release, which can confirm that the HX1500i and HX1000i have earned Cybenetics Labs’ Platinum certification, something that’s reserved for PSUs with ≥89% to <91% overall efficiency.
Building upon the all-digital legacy of the renowned CORSAIR AXi Series, the new HXi Series power supplies offer the power, efficiency, and stability to match today’s, and tomorrow’s, most power-hungry enthusiast components. Cybenetics-Platinum certified and rated for up to 91% efficiency, HXi PSUs draw less power and create less heat at comparable loads, while a high-performance 140mm fluid dynamic bearing (FDB) fan keeps your PSU cool with impressively low noise, rated A for HX1000i and A- for HX1500i by Cybenetics. Support for 0 RPM PWM signals means the fan can even switch off entirely at low and medium loads, for near-silent operation. The HX1500i and HX1000i are both built with 100% industrial-grade, 105°C rated Japanese electrolytic capacitors, on a fully digital platform with resonant LLC topology and DC-to-DC conversion, guaranteeing exceptionally steady and reliable performance.
Corsair’s HX1500i and HX1000i power supplies also support the company’s iCUE software, allowing owners to adjust their fan curves, check their power output, and more. Users will also find a Modern Standby sleep mode for “extremely fast wake-from-sleep times and even better efficiency at low loads.”
CORSAIR iCUE software opens up a range of detailed control options for the HXi Series, so you can fine-tune your power supply to your needs. Use iCUE to create custom fan curves to dictate at which temperatures you want the fan to ramp up, monitor your power output and efficiency in real-time, and toggle between single or multi-rail overcurrent protection (OCP) on-the-fly.
