The TX-1600 achieves top performance, taking the lead from the Wentai Aidan. Still, the Corsair AX1600i remains the performance king, thanks to its state-of-the-art platform with the totem-pole PFC converter and the digital controllers. Flextronics' work on the AX1600i looks nothing less but amazing, even after several years of its release!
The graph below depicts the cooling fan's average noise over the PSU's operating range, with an ambient temperature between 30 to 32 degrees Celsius (86 to 89.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
Under normal operating temperatures, the average noise output is deal low for a 1600W beast. Only the Asus Rog Thor bests the TX-1600 here.
The following graph shows the PSU's average efficiency throughout its operating range with an ambient temperature close to 30 degrees Celsius.
The Wentai unit is the performance king, followed by the AX1600i and the TX-1600 comes third. This is not bad, at all, given that the latter doesn't use a totem-pole PFC converter, like the aforementioned units.
Power Factor Rating
The following graphs show the PSU's average power factor reading throughout its operating range with an ambient temperature close to 30 degrees Celsius and 115V/230V voltage input.
The APFC converter needs tuning for higher readings, especially with 230V input.
