Ahead of Computex 2014, Corsair has launched a new line of power supplies, the HXi Series, which includes 750, 850 and 1000 watt models. They will be made available in August for $169.99, $189.99 and $229.99 respectively.
A list of specifications reveal an 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency, a fully modular DC cable set, and 100 percent Japanese electrolytic capacitors rated at 105 degrees Celsius. The list also shows a Zero-RPM fan mode for silent operation during slow and medium modes, and a 140mm fluid dynamic bearing fan.
"The ultra-efficient design found within the HXi Series generates minimal heat and runs exceptionally quiet, even when delivering high levels of power," states the PR. "The PSUs meet the stringent requirements for 80 PLUS Platinum certification by achieving greater than 92 percent energy efficiency — reducing both energy waste and the electrical bill."
The list of specifications also reveals a continuous power rated at 50 degrees Celsius. There’s even Corsair Link support, which is desktop software that monitors in real time "efficiency, voltages, power output, temperature, and fan speed plus user customizable setting of rail modes and fan speed."
"When we launched the first PSUs in 2006, the HX Series redefined what a PC PSU should be, raising the bar for PSU quality and performance and making them a long-trusted favorite of PC enthusiasts,” said Aaron Neal, product manager of PSUs at Corsair. “The new HXi PSUs build on that legacy."
Again, the PSUs will launch in August, so stay tuned for more details.
