    Re: Corsair HX1200i

    And how long does Link work before burning out like it does on the AXi series?

    Tarinder, if I want a quiet build for a 980 Ti, why should I get this instead of the £80 cheaper fanless Seasonic 520W?

    I didn't realize Link on the AXi had these issues...

    I have an HX750i for 7 months and so far everything (including Corsair Link) works great.

    I keep seeing this posted (likely it's just you posting) and other than your post I can't find anything on it... care to expand?

    Have got a AX860i for over a year and a half now without issues. Didn't know this was a thing.

    I've used an AX760i for nearly 2 years, similarly I haven't had a single issue.

    If you're going to be using it solely for a single-GPU system then the answer is to go for the cheaper supply. If, however, you intend of creating a monster rig and don't want capacity to ever be an issue, the Corsair HX1200i is pretty much as good as they come.

    Re: Corsair HX1200i

    Speaking from personal experience, the AXi series is stellar whereas it is the Link software that's a mess of software, failing to report both accurate data (sometimes having data spikes way beyond what the hardware can do) as well as even reporting data at all. I've browsed the Corsair forums for a lengthy period of time in order to better understand what could be the reasoning behind the software's behavior and apparently it's been buggy for a long time, not having come out of beta status for around 3 years, if I'm not mistaken, and affecting Commander Mini and AiO users as well with different issues.

    With that said, all AXi hardware I've used was amazing, with the exception of me unfortunately getting an AX1200i lemon that had the auto fan feature broken, never spinning automatically and requiring fixed settings, alongside broken OCP, but after a reasonably swift RMA I got a new PSU that's been working rock solid. About Link, I've said it on another topic that I ended up installing it to configure the PSU the way I prefered, then disabled the software since the PSU stores user settings.

    EDIT: I'd like to add that both HX750 and HX850 have been reliable workhorses in the past as well. So far, the single issue I've had was the one mentioned above.

    Seriously. "Burning out"? Like what? Like the USB port bursting into flames? LOL!
