"Corsair has earned a reputation for engineering the best PSUs on the market, and with the new Build Series, we now have a best-in-class solution for those who need a great value power supply for basic system builds and upgrades," said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager of Components at Corsair. "The Builder Series is perfect for system builders who want to take advantage of Corsair's legendary quality and reliability."
Designed specifically for single GPU setups, Corsair says it still managed to cram in a few high end features typically reserved for gold label PSUs. For example, the Build Series rolls all the +12V amps into a single rail design and delivers up to 80 percent energy efficiency. And while not modular, they do ship with "extra long-fully sleeved cables" so shouldn't come up short in that hulking tower you scored for cheap at the local computer fair.
The Build Series is available now for $50 (CX430, 430W), $65 (CX500, 500W) and $75 (CX600, 600W).
