expired [eBay Plus] Corsair OEM RM1000i Full Modular 1000W 80 Plus Gold ATX PSU White $169.15 Shipped @ PC Byte eBay

PEACHY15

Original Coupon Deal

Was in need of a good psu that also did not have an aggressive fan curve. This one is top tier and is white if thats what you are after. For what youre getting it is a great deal imo. The cables are worth a bit too.

edit: Says more than 10 available but dont know how many.

Please note this is an OEM unit and it comes with lesser quantity and quality cables and connectors than a retail unit. It may or may not come with the full retail 10-year warranty. The eBay description is cut-and-pasted from Corsair's 10th anniversary limited edition literature and cannot be relied upon. — editor

OP EDIT: Warranty is clearly stated on corsairs website to be ten years. (check under tech specs). Also see images for cables….there are plenty. https://www.corsair.com/ww/en/Categories/Products/Power-Supp...

    This only has two twin PCI-E cables compared to four in the regular black pack. It also has less sata and molex and the cables are not sheathed as they are on the black. Worth paying a bit more IMO as the white cables are not the same build quality. The price however is good but I'm sure you can find the black RM1000i for a reasonable discount as well.

      Cheapest i was able to find the black one was around 210, im not too good at searching though feel free to link one. For the money though this is plenty imo.

      Yeah, I don't think nicer cables are worth 50 bucks more.

      •  

        I've seen on Facebook some people pay $200+ for some sleeved cables for their PC builds to look slightly nicer. Crazy world.

          I've seen on Facebook some enthusiasts pay $200+ for some sleeved cables for their PC builds to look significantly nicer.

          That's better.

          I would. Built a SFF and cable management is a pain.

    •  

      I am trying to find more info on this white OEM RM1000i. Can you give me a link to the source of your info, in particular less connectors and lower quality cables? The description in this eBay listing seemed to be a copy and paste job from the 10th anniversary limited edition and cannot be relied upon.

        I have had both types.

        The White OEM cables are less flexible, not sheathed so you need to cable tie them or they go everywhere, the quality is not as good (connectors), the OEM cables have joins and capacitors that are not noticeable in the black version and you get less cables.

        I'm also not sure on the warranty for the OEM, it's 10 years on the black which is stated on the box and warranty card.

        I don't think I found any info online about the white but I had purchased one so I could compare against the black which I purchased after that.

        •  

          Thanks for sharing your experience. I have updated the deal description with these important information. It made the deal much less attractive especially regarding the warranty.

        •  

          I had a 850w black retail one and now a 1000w OEM white one. The fact that the cable are not sheathed is a big plus, you are making it sound like a drawback. That means that you can make them play nice.

          I do not believe you can easily compare the cables, you have individually sleeved cables vs bunched together ones, I cannot contradict you that ones are less or more flexible, I personally did not notice.

          Regarding the connectors, again I did not notice any difference.

          I personally love the white version one. Like other people said it only comes with 1 EPS cable, my motherboard needs an 8+4 but in fact there are not really needed.

            Play nice? They are hard to keep free from dust, they are not neat, harder to route etc.

            I can easily compare as I've worked with electronics etc my whole life. I have had a number of the white cables start smoking when the wire failed and a number of their connectors melt under load when the black cables never missed a beat under the same load that was within specifications.

            Regarding the connectors, again I did not notice any difference.

            The cables are different quality with lower quality connectors.

            Unless you know what the difference is between wire and connector types you cannot say the white cables are better.

    i'm using coolermaster 450w psu from 15yrs ago.

    not sure if i need to upgrade for peace of mind.

  •  

    Something does not add up. The eBay description said limited edition, individually numbered from 1 to 100. And this was in December 2016. Surely all 100 units would have sold out by now?

      yeh i know thats what I was thinking, honestly no idea. i bought one so ill see what happens when i get it

    •  

      It was a 100 special edition in white for an anniversary, sold out in seconds and given out for promos. They later made a cheaper version of the PSU because it was so popular. Because it's OEM Corsair don't have that much info and backing behind it. Build quality isnt as good as what you'd expect from them also the size is huge! One of the biggest PSUs around. Efficiency and noise is average, rather get the 750w or 850w RX if you're after a white PSU. Whisper quiet and fan basically never comes on

  • +3 votes

    Got one of these last year from them, the fans rarely ever run as the max power I draw is like 430W. According to the Corsair Link software and HWINFO, efficiency rating hovers at about 88-92% which is actually Platinum grade

    •  

      i draw like 330w with a 2080 inside lol (hx1000i simillar shit) my efficiency is also around 88-92 but its suppose to be plat

    These are OEM products. They are the same but not the same with the typical retail product you would find on a store's shelf. The explanation is quite long. You can read this if you're interested. (https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/oem-products-cheaper-makeuseof...)

    I had the black version of this a while ago. Beautifully stable power supply, but just watch the dimensions if your case is limited for space, it's looooong.

    I'm not trying to shame this store. I bought one a few months ago. I turned it on. My room smelt like burning plastic. The burning smell was so bad, I asked for a full refund. I'd be cautious buying electronics on eBay

    •  

      Ive built 5 pcs using parts from ebay stores like computer alliance and pc byte. No issues.

      Bought a gpu off amazon u.s and it caught fire. Has nothing to do with the store front, faults happen. I still buy off amazon.

      Did you review that on ebay LOL i saw the same comments on ebay.

  •  

    Was about to get this, but according to umart these are the cables you get:

    OEM KIT ONLY:
    1 x 24 Pin ATX
    1 x 8 Pin EPS
    1 x Molex
    1 x SATA Power
    2 x 6+2 Pin PCIE
    1 x USB (Corsair Link)

    Only 4 sata power connectors aren't enough for what I want, and buying more seems rather expensive.
    I'd rather just pay the extra ~45 now and get the better quality cables (including 12 sata power connectors).

    Would like to know if you do indeed get more cables with this OEM unit so if anyone has one already let us know.

      View the link i posted in the OP. The corsair site shows images with the cables. here is a link to the specific image anyway: https://www.corsair.com/medias/sys_master/images/images/hc7/...

        That is the special edition though, not the OEM version (which this is), so the cables would not be the same, unless I am misunderstanding something?

        • +1 vote

          the ebay seller has the exact same cable image in their listing, scroll down on their page.

          Edit: I think the seller put the same "special edition" images on the page, but the images of the listing show the OEM product. I know what you mean, ill have to wait until i receive mine.

    •  

      Sorry maybe a stupid question but you mention one SATA cable but then say 4 SATA connectors isn't enough. Does the 1 cable have enough plugs for 4 SATA devices?

      • +1 vote

        From what I have read, yes that is the case.

        •  

          Perfect, thank you. I only run 3 SATA drives (in addition to M.2 NVMe) so this PSU should be perfect.

          Really needed to replace the 750W Thermaltake LitePower I use (I don't know much about PSUs but I've been told my current PSU is terrible).

  •  

    Thanks OP, ordered!

  •  

    Cheers OP!

  •  

    Received this yesterday, can confirm it's the OEM version with minimal cables and no box.

    Has a 4 way SATA cable, turned out I need 5 (forgot about my fans), so just added a $3 SATA Y splitter to it.
