    Korean company Zalman is on the verge of launching its Goldrock series mid-capacity PSUs. Available in capacities of 550W, 650W, and 750W; the PSUs are 80 Plus Gold compliant, with 87% to 92% efficiency at 20% to 100% load. The Goldrock series PSUs strike a cost-performance sweetspot by providing high-end PSU features, and making up for it with fixed cabling.

    The Goldrock series PSUs from Zalman pack high-grade Japanese capacitors, active PFC, LLC resonant circuit, DC-DC switching. A single +12V rail design is implemented, which can deliver 45A of current on the 550W variant, 54A on the 650W, and 62A on the 750W variants. A 5VSB green IC gives the PSU ErP Lot 6 compliance. A secondary protection IC gives it protection against over/under voltage/current, overload, and short-circuit. The 550W, 650W, and 750W variants are expected to be priced at US $134, $145, and $158, respectively.

    Why? You want to blow it up and damage your other components?

    I feel their priced too high.. With a market already dominated by Corsiar's TX and HX series of PSUs, zalman may have a bad time.

    PSU is the one thing you should never feel bad about spend a tiny bit more for. Cheap os.
    Anyways i like their marketing with the electronics, at least they aren't saying it is the best.

    Cheap doesn't automatically mean crap. Look at Corsair CX, Chieftech, FSP..

    Corsair got PSU's made by SeaSonic. And Corsair PSU's are known not to be crap by default.

    Actually a lot of Corsair's PSUs are made by CWT.
