Corsair AX1500i

The Corsair AX1500i Digital ATX power supply is claimed by Corsiar to be the most technologically advanced, energy efficient, and customizable power supply available to PC enthusiasts. Not only that, Corsair says that the AX1500i has gone over the 80 Plus Platinum and the AX1500i’s groundbreaking efficiency meets the current draft for ATX 115 Volt 80 PLUS Titanium for consumer PSUs. Features that the AX1500i boast are  94% efficiency at 50% load at 115V, Includes 8 PCI-E cables for support for up to 4 GPUs,Native USB onboard for Corsair Link, 100% Japanese capacitors, Custom-designed fluid dynamic bearing 140mm low-noise fan, Silent Zero RPM Fan Mode up to 450 watts and ultra-quiet operation at full 1500 watt output (26.5 dBa).

The AX1500i’s second generation digital architecture enables the PSU to consistently deliver up to 1500 watts of power with class-leading Titanium energy efficiency levels of up to 94%. The DSP-controlled circuitry of the PSU allows it to consistently deliver exceptionally stable voltages along with amazingly low ripple and noise. Tremendous power reserves combined with a vast array of cabling options enables the AX1500i to power heavily overclocked PC systems with up to four graphics cards in NVIDIA® SLI™ or AMD CrossFireX™ configurations with headroom to spare.

The AX1500’s leading performance is possible thanks to a streamlined component count and circuit-board layout made possible by the DSP-based design. The AX1500i’s high efficiency results in reduced heat, allowing the PSU to operate in silent Zero RPM Fan Mode until the load reaches 450 watts. A custom-designed fluid dynamic bearing 140mm fan, specifically designed for low-noise operation, allows the PSU to run quietly even when running at full 1500 watt power output.

Pricing, Availability, and Warranty

The Corsair AX1500i Digital ATX Power Supply is backed by a seven-year warranty and will be available in Q2 from Corsair’s worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors. The suggested US retail price is $449.99 USD.
