Corsair Launches the HXi Series Power Supplies

Corsair, the most awarded PC power supply brand in the world1, today announced its new HXi Series PC power supply, the latest evolution in the award-winning line of HX PSUs. Available in 750, 850, and 1000 watt models, the HXi Series PSU feature 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency, fully modular cables, near-silent operation, Japanese electrolytic capacitors, and Corsair software monitoring and customization. Akin to all Corsair PSUs, the HXi Series utilizes high-quality componentry to guarantee clean, stable, continuous power when needed most.

The ultra-efficient design found within the HXi Series generates minimal heat and runs exceptionally quiet, even when delivering high levels of power. The PSUs meet the stringent requirements for 80 PLUS Platinum certification by achieving greater than 92% energy efficiency - reducing both energy waste and the electrical bill. Built with specially selected low-noise capacitors and transformers, and a Zero-RPM Fan Mode (that only spins the PSU fan under the heaviest loads), the HXi Series PSU deliver ultra-low noise operation during common daily use. Within, a 140 mm fluid dynamic bearing fan runs quietly at all speeds for remarkably discreet operation and additional cooling.

Lastly, Corsair Link software gives enthusiasts complete control over their HXi PSU. Real-time temperature, power usage, efficiency monitoring, and selectable single/multi rail mode straight from the desktop.

"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 with upgraded efficiency, fully modular cables, software monitoring, and some of the best voltage regulation, noise, and ripple specs in their class."

If the warranty on these units are 5+ years, I'm tempted to get the HX1000i

I hope these won't be another RM series.

I'm surprised they didn't market these as Gold power supplies to not hurt their AX series sales.

I hope Corsair can justify its price with AX1500i-like performance.

If not EVGA G2 will always be the first choice.
