A little over a year ago, we took an in depth look at Corsair's AX1200. The unit proved to be quite the beast. It was packed with just about all the features you could think of at the time including a full set of modular connections, 80Plus Gold certification, near silent cooling and a ton of power. On top of that, it performed almost flawlessly. We even sent the unit over to our very own Chad Sebring for some testing of his own in his highly overclocked system. He was able to pull several hundred more MHz out of his processor and a tad bit more on the video cards. We simply couldn't recommend the unit enough, but there was always one question that loomed in the back of our heads: "Where will Corsair go from here? They have to beat it somehow don't they?"
Fast forward to now and Corsair has answered our questions. They have used the original AX1200 and improved upon it in just about every way by bringing us the AX1200i. Many are thinking that since the unit already performed so well that the only thing we are talking about are minor improvements all the way around with efficiency, DC output quality and voltage regulation.
Corsair promises all of those are in fact improved, but there is more than that to the AX1200i. Corsair has also managed to work in the Corsair Link hardware and software with the AX1200i to give you the ability to monitor the entire power supply and even do some custom configuration to how the unit performs. Can these improvements really make that much of a difference and will the integration with Corsair Link be that beneficial?
