Corsair launches its new PSU Power series
by Slobodan Simic on15 October 2008
Update: Starts at 400W
Corsair has announced its newest Power PSU series that will be, as the press release states, economical, quiet and energy-efficient. The first model that has been announced in this series is the CX400W.
The new CX400W is rated at up to 400 Watts of continuous power output at 40ºC, supports the latest ATX12V v2.2 standard, has a 99% active PFC and an efficiency of over 80 percent. The single +12V rail on this new PSU is capable of delivering 30Amps of current and the PSU features six SATA, six 4-pin peripheral, two floppy and one PCI-E 6+2 pin connectors. All cables are sleeved and extra long, so full tower cases aren't a problem, and the new PSU is cooled by an ultra-quiet 120mm double ball bearing fan that is automatically controlled, depending on the temperature.
The rest of the specs are pretty much up to the standard, just as you would expect from Corsair. The new PSU has Over Current/Voltage/Power protection, Under Voltage Protection, and Short Circuit Protection and has a MTBF rated at 100,000 hours.
Corsair is backing this one with a 3-year warranty and it should appear in retail/e-tail by the end of October. The suggested price stands at US $59.99.
Update: We managed to find out that the price in EU should stand at around €50.
