Maximum PC - - DREAM MACHINE 2017 -

The choice of PSU this time around was an easy one to make: We went straight for Corsair’s HX1200i. Af­ter us­ing the 1,000W vari­ant last year, and ap­pre­ci­at­ing just how quiet it is with its 0dB fan tech, plus the fan­tas­tic Plat­inum en­ergy ef­fi­ciency rat­ing, there re­ally was no other choice.

We also went all-out this year and got in touch with CableMod to hook us up with some be­spoke ny­lon-sleeved PSU ca­bles. They’re cer­tainly not cheap, com­ing in at $311 for the lot, but the qual­ity is ex­cep­tional, and with CableMod’s cable combs, they re­ally add some ex­tra pop to your build. If you’re af­ter your own set of be­spoke ca­bles, head over to CableMod’s store, se­lect the con­fig­u­ra­tor, then choose your model of PSU, add the ca­bles you want, the ma­te­rial you’d like to use, and the color and length of the ca­bles you need, and just add them to your cart. Sim­ple.
