NZXT announces fully modular C1000 Gold 1,000W power supply

A 1,000W single-rail and semi-passive, sign me up.

NZXT has unveiled a new 1,000W fully modular power supply featuring 80 Plus Gold efficiency and semi-passive cooling in an ATX format.

Dubbed C1000 Gold, it measures 150mm (W) x 150mm (D) x 86mm (H), which is quite compact for a PSU delivering such power. Its modularity makes for a perfect clean build using NZXT’s CRFT 10 H510i All Might.

Electrically, the C1000 Gold boasts a single +12V rail capable of pushing up to 1,002W (83.5A) total power. Enough to run even an RTX 3090 Ti plus Ryzen 7 5800X3D monster gaming rig. 90.5 per cent efficiency at 50 per cent load alongside a 0.96 power factor correction (PFC) reduces wasted energy.

As for connectors, we find all we could possibly need from a PSU of this calibre, starting with the bulky 24-pin, followed by two 4+4 pin EPS, six SATA and six Molex cables.

To keep everything cool, NZXT uses a 135mm fluid-dynamic bearing fan capable of stopping under low-intensity workloads. At max speed, this fan can rotate at 2,300RPM providing 93.02CFM of airflow at 44.5dBA.

The C1000 Gold is priced at €154.99 and comes covered by a 10-year warranty as standard.
