Club 3D Rolls Out its First PSU Lineup

Club 3D, known more for its graphics cards, rolled out its first lineup of PSUs, ranged from a 400W entry level non-modular model to a 1000W high-end modular one, with 600W non-modular, 700W and 850W modular models along the way. The 1000W CSP-X1000CB, to begin with, uses a 4-rail +12V circuit with 38A per rail, it boasts of 80 Plus Bronze efficiency rating. Connectors include (apart from the 24-pin ATX and 4+4-pin EPS(CPU)): two fixed + four modular PCI-E 6+2 pin; one modular 4+4-pin EPS(CPU); three fixed + six modular SATA power; two fixed + five modular Molex; one fixed + one modular Floppy. This PSU has a blue colored 120 mm temperature-controlled fan. Next is the 850W CSP-D850CB, this 80 Plus Bronze certified PSU also uses a four-rail +12V design, but with 34A rails. Connectors are the same the 1000W model, except for: two fixed + two modular PCI-E 6+2 pin. This one, along with the 750W model has a green-colored fan.

Speaking of the 750W CSP-D700CB, this 80 Plus Bronze certified model uses a four-rail +12V circuit with 32A rails. Its connector configuration is different from the 850W model: apart from the 24-pin ATX and 4+4-pin EPS(CPU), only three SATA connectors are fixed. Rest are modular, which include: six SATA power; two PCI-E 6+2 pin; two PCI-E 6 pin; five Molex; one 4+4 pin EPS(CPU); and a Floppy power. Next up, are the totally non-modular value models. The 600W CSP-S600 sports two PCI-E 6+2 pin; six SATA; five Molex; and one Floppy; while the cheapest 400W CSP-S400 gives you just one PCI-E 6+2 pin; four SATA; 3 Molex. The 600W and 400W models are just 80 Plus rated, and feature a yellow-colored fan. Club 3D did not give out any pricing details.

Here are two examples: XFX 750 W Black Edition is a relabeled Seasonic M12D 750 W, and SilverStone Element ST75EF is a relabeled Seventeam ST-750P-AF.

It's like that with all electronics. What's interesting at this time is at what price it will be released imo. And stuff like warranty and support and that.

Wasn't one of the last major things BFG do was start selling PSUs before they shutdown?

Considering Most Club3D are just Powercolor clones (I mean, even the coolers) I would say they're not that bad. I've had Powercolors until now and they were quite good, considering the price. Also, you mixing different matters here. The PSUs are not made by Club3D, just rebadged by them.
