Plus PCIe 5.0 and a 12+4 VHPWR cable too!
It’s taking a while, but we’re starting to see more ATX 3.0 PSUs supporting PCIe 5.0, and NVIDIA’s massive cable hits the market. They will still have a price premium, but as competition increases prices should start to fall. The 2023 version of the Corsair RM1000e is now available for those looking to modernize their PSU for the next build. It is rated 80 PLUS Gold, contains capacitors rated 105C and comes with a seven year warranty cooled by a 120mm rifle bearing fan.
KitGuru’s tests revealed the Corsair RM1000e to be a very solid product, providing stable power with little to no ripple and efficiency levels that deserve the 80 PLUS Gold rating. The PSU also runs fairly quietly, at least until it reaches full load. Since you shouldn’t be running a PSU constantly at maximum levels, sound levels will stabilize at around 30dBA, keep it below 500W and the fan won’t even start.
As for the price, at $180 it’s significantly less expensive than the competition making it ideal for an ATX 3.0 kilowatt-per-hour class.
