CORSAIR RECEIVES 80 PLUS® “GREEN” CERTIFICATION ON ALL POWER SUPPLY UNITS

Corsair Eco-Friendly PSUs Deliver Performance and Efficiency


Fremont, CA, April 10, 2008 – Corsair® http://www.corsair.com, a worldwide leader in enthusiast computer and flash memory products, announced today that it has been awarded 80 PLUS Certification across the entire Corsair line of Power Supply Units (PSUs), including the award winning modular HX Series, powerful TX Series and value-performance VX Series.

More Efficient, Same Performance

80 PLUS Certification is the gold standard for power supply energy efficiency.  The 80 PLUS specification requires computer and server PSUs to be at least 80 percent efficient at 20 percent, 50 percent and 100 percent rated load, ultimately improving computer stability and saving money on electricity bills.  In addition, there are also performance benefits, such as reduced heat output which increases system reliability and minimizes the need for loud, high rpm cooling fans.

“We at the 80 PLUS program are delighted to recognize and applaud Corsair for having a complete power supply product line that is 80 PLUS certified,” said Jason Boehlke of the 80 PLUS Organization.



Build a Green PC

System builders will find it easier to design a Green PC rig by starting with any one of the 80 Plus Certified Corsair PSUs as their fundamental building block.

“At Corsair, we feel like it is our responsibility to maintain high standards so our customers don’t have to make the choice between excellent performance and energy efficiency,” said Jack Peterson, VP of Corporate Marketing at Corsair.  “They know that by choosing a Corsair power supply, they are getting premium performance, lower total cost of ownership and the smallest environmental footprint available,” added Peterson.

 Corsair are cleaning up the reviews recently. Not bad for a RAM company thats new to the scene. Power supply industry is pretty competive now, great bargains to be had.

Cool. I'm getting a 650W Corsair power supply for the rig I'm building, it should fit nicely in the Antec 900 case I got. Sould have no problems running a 9900 GT or 4850 without burning off half the power coming from the wall as heat before it even gets to the video card, CPU, and Hard drive. Stick out tongue

I see in the ATX 12V 2.3 spec they only have 70% as a requirement.
