Written by Slobodan Simic

For mainstream system builders

Corsair has added yet antoher series of PSUs to its offer, the Builder Series. Consisting of three different models, Builder series is designed for PC system builders/integrators that are looking of "affordable, quiet, and energy efficient PSU for mainstream performance on single GPU systems.

The PSUs feature a single +12V rail and are rated at 80% energy efficiency. They come with an ultra-quiet 120mm temperature controlled fan and have ATX12V v2.3 certification. Builder Series will be available in 430, 500 and 600W flavors and all three will have fully-sleeved cables.

Availability is expected pretty soon and Builder Series should hit retail priced at US $49.99 for the 430W model, US $64.99 for the 500W model and US $74.99 for the 600W model. The entire series is backed by a two-year limited warranty.

Looks neat.

This new lineup is not 80-Plus certified. The 80% efficiency is at optimum wattage. Obviously a lower quality, but still good enough product, that local computer shops will put into their custom builds.

I would myself pay a bit more to get higher quality PSUs from the Corsair HX Series.

I wouldn't pay more. These are overpriced period.

AFAIK Corsairs have some of the best pricing around considering they're not cheapo, but still, I agree with Bern, I would also pay more for a higher quality unit. Was thinking something in the range of Seasonic X line.

i would rather pay the same amount for a higher quality unit..i mean i'm looking at a 40$ 600watt 80+ certified psu after rebate (good brand, yay promotions). point is you can get better for what they are asking in the first place. and only 2 yr warranty on these cheapos while 3 years is standard warranty. the models they replaced were actually better. good job corsair, horrible reviews so far on this lineup especially about the fan being low quality/faulty the cx400 was 80+ certified. Funny when older models are better and less expensive. and these don't even get 80% effeciency but 'up to 80%' like bernard pointed out. so take that with a grain of salt. not trying to bash corsair but this series looks bad.
