The XPG Cybercore is perhaps left just a little behind by the EVGA (1000 P6) and Asus (Rog Thor II 1000) rivals, however it options additional excessive construct high quality and makes use of top-of-the-line followers we have now seen in a PSU thus far. Furthermore, it has compact dimensions and a great deal of connectors, which do not embrace a 12+4 pin, although, and its transient response at 12V is sweet. Due to its semi-digital platform, will probably be simply upgraded to satisfy the ATX12V v3.0 necessities, and shortly sufficient, it should even have a 12+4 pin connector to assist the RTX 3090 Ti and several other upcoming GPUs. Its upcoming model seems to be promising and can most likely earn a spot in our greatest PSUs article.
XPG takes energy severely because it has folks with huge expertise in energy provides in its arsenal. This time, it launched two high-power PSUs, with 1000 W and 1300 W max energy, and in right now’s evaluation, we are going to consider the Cybercore 1000. For the Cybercore line, XPG teamed with Nidec, top-of-the-line fan producers, so the members of the road use top-notch followers (XPG Vento Professional 120 PWM). In PSUs, two components are essential: the electrolytic capacitors and the cooling fan. Often, the latter has an issue maintaining, particularly below harsh situations, and if the cooling fan stops working, naturally, the whole lot else will do the identical after some time.
So fan performs a big function in a PSU’s longevity. The issue is that good followers price so much, so most often, you’ll be able to see high-end PSUs utilizing mid-level followers whereas the lower-end PSUs include sleeve-bearing followers, which aren’t appropriate for severe workloads.
Apart from a top-quality fan, the Cybercore 1000 makes use of a completely modular cable design, which on this model would not embrace a 12+4 pin connector. Nonetheless, XPG knowledgeable me that they’re already engaged on an up to date model that can encompass this connector. Our greatest guess is that it’ll incorporate the remainder modifications required by the latest ATX spec, together with improved response to transient masses.

The discharge of the ATX12V v3.0 normal rendered virtually all present PSUs out of date as a result of they lack the 12+4 pin connector, which will be discovered within the freshly launched RTX 3090 Ti. Nonetheless, this doesn’t suggest that your older PSU will probably be ineffective since even Nvidia included an adapter in its current launch to supply compatibility with the 12+4 pin socket. It isn’t splendid to make use of adapters, however they help you proceed utilizing your previous PSU whether it is sturdy sufficient to assist the brand new graphics playing cards.
The Cybercore 1000 comes with sufficient cables and connectors. It’s good to see super-long cables since these PSUs are for colossal chassis. Furthermore, the gap between the peripheral connectors is right. Lastly, there aren’t any in-line caps, and the cables by means of which can move numerous Amperes use thicker gauges. Every little thing is so as right here. XPG did an ideal job!

It is a barely modified CST platform offered by Channel Properly Expertise. It makes use of a double-sided PCB, which is extra appropriate for high-power PSUs, and its construct high quality is high. The identical goes for the components used, together with Infineon and Alpha & Omega FETs, Texas Devices controllers, Japanese caps, and a Nidec fan.
Nidec is likely one of the greatest fan producers, however its merchandise are tremendous costly. The platform makes use of a semi-digital design with an interleaved APFC, a full-bridge topology, and an LLC resonant converter on the first facet. We meet the standard stuff, synchronous rectification, and a pair of DC-DC converters on the secondary facet.
The transient/EMI filter is full. The NTC thermistor, dealing with massive inrush currents, is supported by a bypass relay to chill down quick as soon as the PSU is in operation and never waste vitality.
The pair of bridge rectifiers can deal with as much as 50 Amperes, which is greater than sufficient for this PSU.
The interleaved APFC has two converters working parallel, with a part distinction. Any such APFC permits for decrease enter and output present ripple, and it additionally gives decrease conduction losses and better effectivity. An MCU controls the interleaved APFC.
4 Alpha & Omega FETs are the first switching FETs put in right into a full-bridge topology. They’re pushed by an MCU and a pair of Silicon Labs Si8233BD ICs.
Eight Infineon BSC016N06NS FETs regulate the 12V rail. They’re put in on a board near the primary transformer to attenuate vitality losses.
The electrolytic caps are of excellent high quality, belonging to good collection of Japanese producers. A number of polymer caps are additionally used for ripple filtering functions.
We discover a number of bus bars on the modular board for energy switch use and several other polymer caps.
The principle supervisor IC is a Weltrend WT7502R.
Soldering high quality is nice.
The 120mm Nidec fan makes use of double-ball bearings, which have a excessive tolerance to elevated working temperatures. That is an costly fan, and our solely comment is that they may use a bigger fan, with a 140mm diameter, to decrease output noise.
