The Corsair Professional Series HX1050 PSU utilizes advanced DC-to-DC circuitry, and exceeds the requirement for 80 PLUS® Silver certification standards, for up to 88% energy-efficiency.
Corsair Professional Series power supplies are design for enthusiasts and gamers who demand high performance, high efficiency, the flexibility of modular cables, and unflinching reliability. Designed and engineered using cutting-edge technology, each Corsair Professional Series power supply is built to the highest quality standards, and delivers the features and performance that technology enthusiast’s demand.
Corsair Professional Series power supplies are built using Industrial Grade electrical components, ensuring the stable, clean and reliable voltages that are essential for high-end gaming PCs and workstations. Professional Series PSUs are rigorously tested at 100% load and an ambient temperature of 50°C, guaranteeing stability and reliability even in the most demanding, multi-core, multi-graphics card systems.
The Corsair Professional Series HX1050 PSU utilizes advanced DC-to-DC circuitry, and exceeds the requirement for 80 PLUS® Silver certification standards, for up to 88% energy-efficiency. This reduces wasted energy, reducing energy bills, and lowers the amount of excess heat generated, allowing the cooling fan to spin more slowly and quietly. Corsair Professional Series power supplies are built using Industrial Grade electrical components, ensuring the stable, clean and reliable voltages that are essential for high-end gaming PCs and workstations.
Corsair Professional Series power supplies boast an innovative semi-modular cabling configuration that uses low-profile, flat modular cables, which reduce air friction to help maximize airflow through the computer chassis. The modular design also simplifies installation as it allows unprecedented flexibility in utilizing only those cables which are needed.
The Corsair Professional Series is backed by an industry-leading 7-year warranty and comprehensive customer support.
The Corsair Professional Series HX 1050 power supply has been designed using advanced technology, including premium-quality capacitors rated at 105°C, to offer enthusiast-grade performance and best-in-class price/performance.
The HX1050 ideal for gaming and enthusiast PCs with the latest CPUs and multiple graphics cards, thanks to the dedicated 87.5 Amp single +12V rail, and 6 x PCI-E graphics connectors. The immensely powerful single +12V rail also simplifies installation, as you don’t have to worry about which +12V rail is connected to each component in your PC, as with multi-rails PSUs.
The use of advanced DC-to-DC circuitry means that energy losses due to AC-to-DC power conversions are eliminated, increasing energy-efficiency and performance.
Thanks to the sophisticated DC-DC circuitry and design, the HX1050 power supply delivers up to 88% energy efficiency, and exceeds the requirements for 80 PLUS Silvercertification. This means that less power is wasted as heat, helping to keep the PSU cool and reliable, in addition to reducing electricity consumption and energy bills.
The HX1050 is tested and guaranteed to deliver its rated specifications at an ambient temperature of 50ºC. This enthusiast-grade specification ensures that it will always deliver its rated power, even in the hottest running gaming and enthusiast PCs. The HX1050 keeps going strong even when you push your PC to the edge.
The HX1050 features a comprehensive modular cable set that caters for tall chassis and modern, high performance gaming PCs. The cable set includes 6 x PCI-E power connectors, and 2 x 8-pin EPS12V connectors.
The high energy-efficiency, which results in less electricity wasted as heat, means that the HX1050 requires less cooling than more inefficient PSUs. The ultra-quiet, 140mm double ball-bearing fan automatically adjusts its speed to deliver the proper amount of airflow, so high-performance power delivery is not at the expense of noise.
As of October 21st 2009, the European Commission adopted the 2009/125/EC ErP product directive, which focuses on environmentally friendly design of energy-using products. The Corsair HX1050 complies with the ErP directive and has qualified by Intel, which means that the power consumption of a whole system (with an ErP compliant motherboard) in either standby or off mode must be under 1W.
The HX1050 power supply comes with an industry-leading and reassuring seven year warranty. And with more than 15 years experience building enthusiast grade memory and components, Corsair has earned a reputation for quality, compatibility, and performance.
