Nice price if you need something like this. Granted a lot of people won't be requiring a 1200W PSU, but for those that do this is really good price point for this model. You need to add the code HX1200i after adding to basket and you should see the discount.

Delivery is free on this as well.

Damn, not only are memory and GPU overpriced but so are PSUs. I bought my HX1000i back in 2015 for 119.99. Even that is overpowered for what's needed these days.
If you don't need the digital interface and prefer Amazon, they have th Hx1200 for £185.

You can always double up on GPUs and CPUs. Personally I've got a 750W PSU and feel uncertain as to whether I'll be able to add a second GPU. My current one already draws 200W, add a second then two CPUs bringing it to 630W total. Throw in RAM, fans, couple of SSDs etc...

Yeah another thing to bear in mind is the efficiency curve, most efficient at half usage
How much for a PSU????

Indeed. If this unit is 95% efficient at half load which is 600W it wastes 30W. If another unit is 90% efficient at full load of 600W it wastes 60W. At 15p per kwh and with 24/7 usage that's £40 saved per year with this beefier PSU.

That's not worth it for your average user but if your machine is on 24/7 under high load this PSU would pay itself off within a few years. Warranty is 10 years, plenty of time to turn a profit.

Excellent PSUs
Fantastic price (normally 220 and up) and good PSUs rarely go on sale
Heat
You'd be lucky to draw 250-300W from a Coffee Lake and GTX 10 series card...not saying there aren't use cases for 1200W, but think carefully before plowing so much of you budget into your PSU.

600 watts! That's over 5000 Kilowatts per year = about a thousand pounds a year (at 19 pence per kilowatt) You may be saving about fifty pounds but look what you are spending!

Hey, sometimes it's worth keeping a beefy machine on 24/7, I mean compare £5k of electricity to your amazon bill for a 600W equivalent machine being on for a year! Let's say that's 4 * 18 core machine, that'd be a c5.18xlarge instance which costs $2200 a month!

Obviously if it's a server of some sort then it's necessary but for a domestic machine...
My microservers are on 24/7 just because I think the disks last longer that way, maybe and the motherboards etc.
But they use no-more than about 60 watts

This is a great PSU but it's obviously expensive because it can be, it's so niche. Last month I posted a deal for the EVGA 1000W GQ series for £88 which is much more reasonable if you need that kind of wattage. I think it's one of those 'it's expensive because it can be' things.

Not worth saving £5 for losing the digital link, though I'd rather buy from Amazon any day. You can monitor the exact power consumption, reconfigure the rails and see all fans and temps from one easy control panel. I would definitely take the 'i' version wherever possible.

Also worth mentioning that many Gold-rated supplies will actually get up to 92-94% efficiency (like the Corsair RM) but they don't quite meet the Platinum standards at a specific level that's all so they only get Gold-rated.

I can only imagine these are used for mining or extreme machines with quad-GPUs for machine learning and workstation environments - even a super high-end gaming machine won't consume this much power.

Anyway, a good power supply will outlast your PC, think of it as an investment - you can use it for 5-10 years in most cases.
