Providing 1200W of 80 PLUS Platinum certified power, Corsair says the HX1200i will be able to drive up to quad-GPU setups with 92% or better efficiency.  The fully modular design uses flat ribbon cables for clean cable routing, and Corsair has made use of "specially selected low-noise components" which include 100% Japanese capacitors rated to 105° C. For low noise the Zero-RPM fan mode only spins the PSU fan when needed, and the PSU is rated for continuous power at a full 50° C.

The HX1200i will carry a 7-year warranty, and also includes Corsair Link integration which allows users to customize the fan speed and offers "real-time monitoring of the PSU’s voltages, efficiency and temperatures".

So it's going to be more expensive than the EVGA 1200 P2? lol.

Same MSRP as the 1200W EVGA SuperNova P2. Both $269, of course this isn't always the retail at Newegg/Amazon depending on the week.  EVGA has a 3-year longer warranty, both have Japanese caps are are rated to full power at 50 C.  As far as this Corsair goes, other than Link software integration the Corsair also has flat cables, something I personally prefer.

The reviews for the hx750i were not good and the reviews for the hx1000i were lukewarm. The EVGA PSU got a perfect 10 out of 10 from johnnyguru and got editor's choice awards everywhere it was reviewed including pcper. Unless the hx1200i can manage such a feat, it should not be priced the same as a PSU that did.

Also, corsair's flat cables are REALLY stiff.
