    That's simply not true. The GPA/GPB series are meant to be a replacement/evolution for the PUFP/PUF series. The latter have proven to be a disaster, so they were rescinded by CWT, and GPA/B offered instead. There are still some PUF-based PSUs on the market, some of the lower-end Enermax NAXN and Chieftec Arena (ANP) series... Either way, it's a modern 12V-centric design, and not an old ATX 1.3 5V-heavy design.

    It's not only that, Ecova Plugload Solutions (the certification company behind 80 Plus program) doesn't allow for 220V testing for 80+ compliance in consumer units. Only some server units are allowed to be tested at 220V, but they must also be capable of running at 110V. So even if Corsair wanted to pay for the 80+ badge, they wouldn't get it.
