Corsair Announces New Line of Power Supply Units

– Corsair’s Gaming Series PSUs Offered in 600W, 700W, and 800W Models –

Fremont, California — September 14, 2010 — Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the Corsair Gaming Series™ Power Supplies. These PSUs are an ideal price-performance solution for building or upgrading a gaming PC.

The Gaming Series PSUs feature a single +12V rail, providing up to 65A of reliable, continuous power for multi-core gaming PCs with single or multiple graphics cards. The ultra-quiet, dual ball-bearing fan automatically adjusts its speed according to temperature, so it will never intrude on your music and games. Tri-color LEDs illuminate the transparent fan blades with blue, red, or white at your command; they can be turned off at the press of a button. (The GS600 features only blue LEDs). The entire family is 80 PLUS® certified to deliver 80% efficiency or higher at normal load conditions, generating a minimal amount of excess heat.

 “The matte black finish and illuminated fans make the Gaming Series PSUs the ideal complement for your gaming rig,” stated Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager of Components at Corsair. “Whether you choose the 600, 700, or 800 watt model, you’ll have the clean, efficient power to create the best gaming PC — yours.”

The Corsair Gaming Series GS800 is available for a suggested retail price of $119.99 (US). The GS700 and GS600 have suggested retail prices of $109.99 (US) and $99.99 (US), respectively. The Corsair Gaming Series power supplies will be available from Corsair-authorized storefronts worldwide. Images can be downloaded here.

Since the impetus of allowing tri-color LED selection is to customize the color scheme, it would be nice if the PSU label came in different colors or was either neutral with gray or white lettering.

Sounds like the a regular Corsair power supply just with illuminated fan blades. I don's know how these stack up against the HX series or the TX series?

Well, if you think about it all power supplies sound the same... but that doesn't mean they are.

Animator: "Kinda like toilet paper :) "

I like your thinking :P

Also animator, jturnbull cares for the color :D. His build is built to match :)

Don't want it to be "John Wayne Toilet Paper" that stuff is rough as hell and don't take crap off of anybody!

The PSU,......Why does it only have one 12V rail?

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
