At £115 this is an incredible price for a 1,000W PSU, but we have to admit that originally alarm bells started ringing whether this was one of those "1,000W too good to be true" bargains. However, having tested it we know that it has stable voltages and good efficiency, even to 100 percent load.
Akasa throws in a three year warranty too which matches the likes of Nanopoint (Tagan, Seasonic etc) and Enermax, but it's lower than many others five year warranties like Cooler Master, Antec for example. The saving grace on this front is that Akasa has a UK RMA base should you need it.
Compared to even the great value ~£140 Corsair HX1000W the Akasa is impressively inexpensive, but you do get what you pay for. The Akasa suffers from a cheap, basic look, very few cables, coil whine, hot running and fan bearing noise, even if the fan itself isn't itself overly loud, and insufficient 12V rails - certainly not enough for a true 1,000W PSU.
