Preview: Take the power back


Club 3D CSP-X1000CB is a standard sized PSU which will fit in all regular cases. It measures (W) 150mm x (L) 164mm x (H) 86mm.

The PSU comes with black matte paint job.

CSP-X1000CB features modular design and all the cables come in a black bag, except of course for the must-have cables – the motherboard 20+4 pin one, the CPU 4+4 pin one and 2x the PCI-e 6+2 pin. Club 3D decided to include two more cables in the must-have bunch – one cable with three SATA connectors and a cable with two MOLEX and one floppy 4-pin cable. As you can see, it’s a pretty thick bunch of cables but you’ll probably use them up relatively quickly. After all, why else would someone require a 1000W PSU?

Modular cables include:

  - one ATX12V/EPS 4 + 4 pin,
  - two  PCI-e cables with two conectors each (8-pin i 6+2 pin),
  - two SATA cables with three connectors each,
  - one peripheral with three 4-pin MOLEX connectors,
  - one peripheral with two 4-pin MOLEX and one floppy connector.

All the cables are displayed in the table below, split in two categories.

Length of the cables is standard, except for the CPU 4+4 pin cable that’s pretty short at 550mm. Enthusiasts and high-end users who intend to mount the PSU a tower case might have trouble routing the ATX cable from the back.

CSP-X1000CB features multi rail design with four 12V rails with 38A each.

The fan is 135mm in diameter and runs pretty quiet. The fan is blue, which in Club3D’s CSP series means that it’s a PSU intended for triple-VGA configuration. The PSUs with 800W and 750W (green fan) are intended for dual-VGA configuration whereas 600W and 400W (yellow fan) are for single-VGA ones.
