MSI MPG A1000G PCIE5 Power Supply Review (with 16-PIN 12VHPWR Connector)

 

Conclusion and Verdict

Using an Intel Core i9-1200KF which has a default TDP of 125W (and a whopping 240-250W during Turbo boost), along with a Radeon RX 6750 XT (TBP of 250W), the total power consumption was well over 500W just for these two components. So it’s important we have a decent power supply that can handle it. A few years ago, I would have said a 750W-850W PSU would do it. But with today’s power hungry CPUs and GPUs, I would definitely recommend a 1000W PSU or higher. Make sure you do your research and make sure you are able to meet the power requirements of your system when getting a new power supply.

Now, with that said … we’re also looking for When it comes to power supply it’s important to have stabily at full load. And having a stable +12V line is the key. From our full load tests, both the +12V and +3V did not drop at all, which is is amazing. The +5V line dropped ever so slightly (-0.02V) which is neglible. I’m more than happy to say that this power supply should be able to handle everything you throw at it, inculding of course all the up-coming high-end graphics card that uses the latest PCIE 5.0 16-Pin connector.

If you’re a fan of RGB, then you’re out of luck. There’s no RGB lighting on the power supply, but it does come with 80Plus Gold certification, zero-fan mode, flat modular cables and uses high quality Japanese capacitors. 

With Nvidia’s imminent release of their next-gen graphics cards, the MSI MPG A1000G PCIE5 is more than ready to handle it. It comes with 2 special cables featuting the new 16-pin PCIe 5.0 connectors. The first cable is a 600W 16-pin to 16-pin, while the 2nd cable is a 16-pin to 2 x PCI-E (6+2 Pin).
