Corsair has taken the AX1200 PSU to the next level with its introduction of the AX1200i Digital ATX PSU at Computex 2012.
The AX1200i builds upon Corsair's AX1200 modular power supply to reach 80 Plus Platinum certification. The AX1200i’s digitally-controlled power circuitry provides stable voltages, and low ripple and noise. In addition, the AX1200i offers high energy-efficiency of up to 92%. These features are aided by the reduced component count and redesigned circuit-board layout, which is made possible by the DSP-based design. The high efficiency results in reduced heat, which allows the AX1200i to operate in a silent fanless mode until the PSU load reaches 40% of the maximum power rating.
AX1200i’s DSP-based design, combined with Corsair Link technology, provides enthusiasts with control over the features and performance characteristics of their PSU. This allows users real-time monitoring of temperature, current draw, and power efficiency, as well as the ability to adjust the speed of the internal 140mm fan. In addition, the features give users the ability to switch from the default single +12V rail configuration to a tailored “multi-rail” mode, with the ability to set over current protection set-points on a per-rail basis.
The AX1200i Digital ATX Power Supply will be available beginning in August, with pricing being announced upon product release. The AX1200i is backed by a limited 7-year warranty.
