    Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash memory products, today announced that it has been voted “Best Power Supply Manufacturer” by the readers of Custom PC Magazine for the second year running.

    Corsair was chosen above all other brands by Custom PC’s audience of true technology enthusiasts and overclockers in the magazine’s annual awards survey. Over 4000 votes were cast and Corsair emerged as the clear winner in the Power Supply category with high scores in all areas, including ratings of 9.5 out of 10 for Performance, Reliability and Build Quality.

    “This year Corsair once again proved to be the leading brand in the Power Supply market.” said James Gorbold, Deputy Editor of Custom PC. “Corsair received more votes from Custom PC readers than any other brand in the sector, and was rated highly for performance, reliability, build-quality and post-sales support.”

    “Corsair is honoured to be voted Best Power Supply Manufacturer 2008 by the readers of Custom PC” said Andy Paul, CEO of Corsair. “Corsair is dedicated to designing and building the highest-quality power supplies possible so that Corsair is the first-choice for enthusiasts and consumers worldwide. Custom PC’s technology-savvy readers understand the importance of using a high-quality power supply and to again be selected as their manufacturer of choice is a testament to the dedication and expertise of Corsair’s engineers.”

    Enthusiast-class Corsair power supplies, such as the critically-acclaimed HX1000W, are engineered and tested to the highest standards using Industrial Grade components. They are qualified to operate at 100% load at an ambient temperature of 50°C, guaranteeing stability and reliability even in the most demanding PCs. Corsair power supplies are backed by a 5-year warranty. Complete customer support via telephone, email, forum and the Tech Support Express helpdesk are also available.

    Good for them! I've heard nothing but good stuff about their PSUs, When/If I decided to go crossfire, I will prob look into getting that HX1000W.

    Corsair is sadly enough the only PSU that died on me, but i know there will always be a few faulty units of any brand, personally i have several zalman psus and not a single one gave me issues and are still very silent.

    Gotta love the stability and silence of a Corsair. My only grudge is the price, but you get what you pay for I suppose.

    Actually, their prices have become more reasonable, especially with the release of the TX series. Good for Corsair.

    I always recommend Corsair PSUs to my friends (even people I dont like :p) specifically the TX series. I know one person that received a DOA TX750w. I assured him it was a fluke and he should replace it with the same unit and everything was perfect with the second one.

    If it was a woman, I'd happily make love to my HX520. A 500W PSU that outputs peak 600W? and can handle my specs with a quad overclocked?

    You just cant beat them IMO. If i go for the 4850X2 ill look into that HX1000 too - overkill i know but future proofing hurts no one ;)

    <3 my HX620, best PSU I've ever had, and it wasn't really all that expensive either. There's a deal on Newegg for 120$ after rebate right now.

    Gotta love my HX620. Still can't believe it powered 2 8800GTX's with ease!

    I learned what quality is when I purchased my Corsair 750W. I had a Nspire 750 that couldn't even handle my 6000+ AM2 and 2x 3870's. Now my Corsair is working with a 9850 B.E @ 2.8Ghz and 2x 3870X2's. It's got some balls!

    Very nice, I didnt realize how many of us actually own Corsair PSUs. Seasonic sure does make some nice Power Supplies.

    nice,

    but as many other big names they don't build the PSU themselves. The HX and VX series are build by Seasonic and are basically the S12 and M12 with minor differences. Seasonic is awesome, so nothing bad about that :D
    Some of the HX and VX (500W+) as well as the TX series are manufactured by Channel Well (CWT).

    Corsair manufactures PSU? I thought their PSUs were CWTs and Seasonics
