Those holding out for a new power supply need not wait any longer. This is the season of 1200 watt Platinum PSUs as Corsair releases the AX1200i Digital Power Supply to join the ranks of this small but growing club.

What makes the AX1200i 80+ Platinum different from the other three units like it? Well to start, it is a 100% modular unit from Corsair and it fully supports their Corsair Link technology. The latter addition gives you real-time monitoring of temperature, current draw, and power efficiency. It also gives you direct control of the PSU fan speed and over-current protection settings.

The 80+ platinum rating and Corsair Link features are achieved thanks to the Digital Signal Processor and full digital control circuitry. This design from Corsair simplifies the circuit design to boost efficiency, maintain low ripple noise, and deliver stable voltage to your PC. It is no coincidence the AX1200i has already won several awards since its initial coming out party at Computex 2012.

The Corsair AX1200i Digital PSU comes with a 7 year warranty and is available right now for US$349. Now, you just need to ask if you need this kind of power and which retailer is offering free shipping.
