Conclusion

The features of the Corsair HX1000W modular power supply are just about perfect for every hardcore benchmark. 24/7 gaming rigs and other users who are looking for 80%+ power efficiency and silent operation with a 3x SLI or CrossFire setup for gaming use or graphics work use will find the HX1000W to be a perfect solution to their PSU needs. Additionally, the modular design will greatly help in clearing up clutter and enhancing airflow inside a PC case.

Performance wise, the PSU is very stable during OCCT stress test + running 3DMark Vantage video tests on both CPU voltages during 24 hours for a week with 5v, 12v and 3.3v rails. All the while, the PSU ran warm and silent.

The Corsair HX1000W modular power supply unit can be found online for $270, while you can find it in the UAE local market with a price tag of AED1150 with a limited 5 year warranty.
