Supports new Energy Star 2007 standard


Corsair
announced the launch of its new VX series of power supply units. The new VX series power supply line will be the first PSU in the Corsair lineup to feature an eco-Friendly design that is Energy Star 2007 compliant.

Available in 450 and 550 watt varieties, these new PSUs were designed from the ground up to be more efficient with an ultra quiet design, according to Corsair. Both PSUs will feature a single +12V power rail design to deliver continuous power even under the most demanding loads.

The units also both feature active Power Factor Correction (PFC) and a surprising 80% more efficiency under a wide variety of load situations. The thermally controlled 120mm fan is able to quietly and efficiently dissipate any heat the unit generates due to its double ball-bearing fan design.

The CMPSU-450VX (450 watt) and the CMPSU-550VX (550 watt) will be available immediately through authorized Corsair resellers. The units will be price with a MSRP of US$85.99 and US$99.99, respectively. Both units will feature Corsair’s 5-year PSU warranty.
