    Corsair Memory, the worldwide leader in design and manufacture of high performance memory and cooling solutions, today announced the introduction of the Corsair HX Series power supply product line. The HX Series modular power supplies mark a new exciting first for Corsair. As the latest entrant into the power supply industry, Corsair's best in class, high performance, ultra-efficient power supplies are expected to set new performance expectations for modular power supply solutions.

    With the same legendary focus on performance and reliability that has produced countless award-winning products, Corsair has engineered the HX Series power supplies to stand up to the demands of the most robust PC systems. The HX Series is the ideal power supply for high performance PCs and gaming systems, audio/video workstations, and file servers.

    Corsair's HX Series feature an enhanced modular cable solution, offering flexible cables for superior cable routing. The modular design eliminates cable clusters and optimizes the airflow inside the computer case to help keep the system cool. Available in 620Watt and 520Watt models, the HX Series efficiently delivers continuous fully rated output with solid triple +12V rails for a combined maximum output rating of 50Amp (40Amp on 520Watt) even at 50'C ambient temperature. These output ratings exceed the requirements for even the most power hungry computers. Additionally, the HX620W and HX520W models offer native support for dual graphics card configurations and include two PCI-Express cables. The HX Series has been thoroughly tested and is compatible with today's NVIDIA's SLI and ATI's CrossFire solutions.

    The HX Series provides 80%+ high efficiency and Active Power Factor (PFC), ensuring the PSU generates minimal heat during operation using less electricity. In addition, the high quality thermally controlled double ball-bearing 120mm fan delivers excellent air flow with whisper quiet operation.

    The CMPSU-620HX (620Watt) nad CMPSU-520HX (520Watt) are available immediately through Corsair's authorized distributors, resellers, retailers and e-tailers. Corsair's power supplies are backed by a 5 year warranty and complete customer support via telephone, email, forum (www.askthepowerguy.com) and the TechSupport Xpress troubleshooting guide.

    heres something that worries me, theres a sticker on top of the capacitor in that picture, so i cant see the top marking, that might cause a bit of mistrust on my side becuase i dont know if its a g-luxon or a Matsushita, and when the psu is concenrned, i would like to have decent capacitors on it,

    Fantastic

    This thing is sleek, sexy and absolutely fantastic. I mean, things are only getting better for us PC Geeks. Corsair is a trusted manufacturer and I have no doubt they use top notch quality components. Not to mention, this is from a company that makes OC'ing its namesake. I cant wait to see some reviews on this puppy. :rockout:

    The OCZ PSU are being manufactured by FSP...which isn't a bad thing at all.

    Of course theyre not, just like Antec, OCZ, Silverstone, and most other dont manufacture their own either.

    What will decide how good they are is who theyve subcontracted. Topower? Etasis? Someone else? (im hoping for etasis as silverstone PSUs kick butt)

    I shall eagerly await a jonnyguru review :)

    Btw, thats a nice combined 12V, highest I've seen on a 620W. My Enermax Libery has 485W combined and the ST60-F has 515W iirc...

    +5vSTB @3A worries me a bit, I believe some DFIs draw 5A from it...

    What actually counts in a PSU is ELECTRICAL quality

    While Corsair makes good PC memory, everyone seems interested in gimmicks to increase sales and profits. L.E.D. style memory is pushing the envelope of good design/taste IMO.

    For those who get all "aroused" about PSU's and what color the L.E.D. lights are on the fans, the less than electrically optimum "modular design" cables or other trivial PSU details, what actually counts in a PSU is the electrical quality. The color of the PSU case or the pretty box it comes in or the Bimbo on the website ad, etc. have ZERO impact on the electrical quality of the PSU and the resulting performance of your PC. Your PC doesn't give a rat's azz about that nonsense, it only cares about stable voltages, proper current supply, and low P-to-P ripple. If you aren't checking out these aspects of a PSU and the size and quality of the internal components, you're just kidding yourself.

    No one on here isnt saying that. Dont know where you got that from. Yes, the psu is nice looking, but everyone pretty much knows what to look for. I dont see why anyone would get angry about corsair making a psu ::shrug:: More so than not, its gonna be a great build as the post tells a little bit of details on all the innards and pfc and all that. The website goes into detail even more. So, I have no idea why you would get all upset ::haha::

    EDIT: I didnt mean to offend anyone or piss anyone off, I was just stating the obvious from what I saw. I do apologize.
