Corsair Unveils Five 80 Plus Gold PSUs In The New RMx Series

Corsair announced the release of its new RMx series of PSUs today, boasting 80 Plus Gold efficiency across the line.

In addition to the relatively high efficiency rating, all of these new PSUs are fully modular and feature a Zero-RPM fan mode for silent operations when the power load is low. These new PSUs take advantage of a custom made 140mm rifle-bearing fan in order to keep the PSU quiet and adequately cooled. Corsair claimed that all of these PSUs use high-quality Japanese capacitors that are rated to withstand up to 105°C of heat.

RMx 650RMx 650Because all of the cables in the unit can be removed, Corsair announced that it will produce a wide range of optional cable accessories, including a range of colored cables for matching the theme of your system.

    I'd like to see Intel and AMD and all parties involved to update PSU design. Every component in PC seems to improve but PSU, make they smaller, make the mail power connector smaller.............heck you will make more money just by having people upgrade their systems.

    The whole point of the ATX specifications is compatibility across a wide range of hardware. If you decide to go and change that specification, you have a product gap that cant be crossed. Compatibility would then be split, and nobody wants that.

    $110 for a Gold modular 550W? Am I missing something here? The same thing from XFX ( SeaSonic ) retails for $90 and is usually available for $80. Semi-modular units are often even cheaper and just as good. The 24-pin ATX and 4+4-pin CPU cables don't need to be modular since you're always going to use them.
