    Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance power supplies, and computer and flash memory products, today announced the launch of the new Corsair Professional Series HX850W and HX750W modular power supply units.

    The Corsair Professional Series power supply units have been designed by Corsair and engineered to the highest quality standards to meet the demands of enthusiasts that expect the very best. The Corsair Professional Series HX850W and HX750W PSUs utilize advanced DC-to-DC circuitry and meet 80 PLUS SILVER certification standards for up to 90% energy-efficiency, reducing wasted energy and lowering the amount of excess heat generated.

    “Our new Professional Series HX850W and HX750W power supplies build on the phenomenal success of the award-winning Corsair HX620W PSU, offering even higher levels of performance, efficiency and reliability, including an industry-leading 7 Year Warranty” said Jim Carlton, VP of Marketing for Corsair, “The HX850W and HX750W have the power to handle the latest multi-core, multi-graphics PCs, and include the features that enthusiasts demand, including a comprehensive modular cable set and super-high efficiency.”

    In addition to super-high efficiency, the Corsair HX850W and HX750W power supply units utilize a low-noise, temperature-controlled 140mm cooling fan, which use a specially modified fan-speed curve that prevents the fan from ‘spinning up’ until the PSU reaches 70% of the rated load. This ensures whisper-quiet running in typical PC configurations, even when gaming or performing processor-intensive tasks.

    The Corsair Professional Series HX850W and HX750W PSUs both include powerful, single +12V rails and are qualified to deliver their full rated power output at an ambient temperature of 50°C, ensuring stability and reliability even under the most stressful conditions. A powerful +12V rail is essential for supporting today’s high-end components, which is why the HX850W can supply up to 99% of its total wattage (840W) on the +12V rail.

    The Corsair Professional Series HX850W and HX750W are available immediately from retailers worldwide and are backed by an industry leading 7 year warranty and comprehensive customer support via telephone, email, forum and the Tech Support Express helpdesk.

    The 850 on the egg is 199.99 but it just came out price will drop a bit more than likely, as well with rebates in the coming months.

    Good to know that they've filled this fairly obvious hole in their product line-up.

    It's based on the CWT DSG design instead of the common CWT PSH design.
    A really good review can be found over at HardOCP

    The 850 and 750 you are talking about are the TX850 and TX750 which are non-modular and they use the CWT PSH design... The HX850 and HX750 is the gap filler between the HX650 (or 675, I forget) and the HX1000.

    However, all Corsair Power Supplies are superb from the budget CX versions to the high end HX versions.

    a_ump, they have none modular and modular PSUs, so what if some of the none modular ones are rated for the same amount of power?

    well it's not really outrageous, there's an 850watt by Xig that's are $179, but then there's Rosewill's 850watt that's $108. price range goes all the way up to $279 for thermaltake. Guess just depends on what you thk the PSU is worth. Personally i wouldn't spend $279 on the thermaltake when the Xiggy 850w is rated up to 87% efficient with good reviews for $90 less.

    i didn't realize they were different, i thought they'd already released an 850w and 750w modular. my mistake :p

    It's a Corsair you will find people who are brand loyal enough to buy it. Not saying they aren't nice PSU's but all expensive for my tastes.

    the only thing I don't like is the fans are top side compared to older models which were bottom side however because the wire guard is in the housing which makes the top side completely flat you can just flip it upside down so I guess I shouldn't complain. I do wish they would include modular dust caps like other companies they are basically these plastic covers you mount on a unused connector so dust doesn't get in.

    Uh before this modulars jumped from 620 to 1000. That's why they made these, so yeah. I know I'm not the first to say this, but, damn dude, damn. :shadedshu

    haha yea man, off mah back :p. well i usually, like i'm sure most u, feel i know a dam good bit bout hardware, but PSU tech is one area i've never really learned much about, and i obviously don't pay attention to PSU releases :laugh:. hum found something to google and read up on while i pass another school night.

    wow, see i never paid attention to modularity(thk that's a word). but dam big price diff.
    newegg corsair PSU's
    The non-modular 750w is cheaper than the 620w modular. u guys really value a PSU being modular to pay that premium? Can't figure it's actually that hard for the manufacturer to make a PSU modular is it?

    it's not really about modular cables but more about cable management and air flow some cases are compartmentalized like the Antec Performance One, Silverstone TJ-07, Lian Li V1xxx, V2xxx and Tyr PC-X2000 so there is no need for a modular power supply and some cases like the HAF 932 have premium cable management because of the width of the case it has a lot of space from the distance between the right side panel and motherboard tray so that you can store two non-modular power supplies if you really wanted to.

    ah, well my PSU isn't modular and i don't have near the best cable management, but everything that i could move i tied down and out of the way near the top of my case with some rubber like strings i found in my kitchen drawer lol. For me i'll save the money on a modular psu and just take some time to tie cables down :cool:

    Yeah I think we're all with you on that. I don't understand why they have to charge so much. Seems ridiculous to me.
