Awesome, I really like that Corsair gives you black cables makes it look much nicer, and when you go to sleeve you don't have to worry about any cables showing through.

Is that hybrid fan control that I see on even the non i-units like Seasonic's new higher end PSUs? If so, I'm glad I held out and didnt buy an AX850.

From AX1200i, AX860i, and AX760i boxes :
Unlike traditional power supply designs, the Corsair AXxxxxi uses a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) for tighter voltage regulation and lower electrical ripple and noise which improves overall system stability and component reliability.
AX760i and 860i all based on the same platform with 1200i (OEM by Flextronics).
Dunno for sure about standard 760 and 860, possibly Seasonic X series V2.

Yes CORSAIR is best PSU manufacturer last 3-5 years.
But I don't like their AX760i, AX860i, AX1200i PSU.

But what is with AX760 Platinum without I??? It's 30$ cheaper.
What is with part inside...???
And what is difference between AX760i and AX760 both Platinum.
No Corsair Link, different Fan inside-better, no monitoring software, inside is same???

I like more AX760 without I???
