Corsair rolls out RM series of PSUs
High-end computer hardware maker Corsair has announced a completely new line of power supply units called RM. The new product family consists of 6 models and succeeds the TX Series, adding 80 PLUS Gold energy efficiency, very quiet operation and real-time monitoring capability.
The entire RM line boasts exceptionally quiet operation even when under demanding power requirements and feature low-noise capacitors and transformers and Zero RPM Fan Mode, which requires the 135 mm cooling fan to spin only under the heaviest of loads. In addition, thanks to the 80 PLUS Gold certification, these PSUs reach energy efficiency of 92 per cent on 230V power networks. Corsair also says that these fully modular PSUs are also fully compatible with the newest Ivy Bridge-E and Haswell processors. The top RM1000 model includes the Corsair Digital Bridge cable (which is optional with the other models) that when hooked up to a motherboard can give the user real-time monitoring of fan speed and the +12V power delivery line.
The new RM line includes the RM450 model (450 watts) for USD 89.99, the RM550 (550 watts) for USD 99.99, the RM650 (650 watts) for USD 119.99, and the RM750, RM 850 and RM1000, which offer 750 watts, 850 watts and 1000 watts of power for USD 129.99, USD 149.99 and USD 164.99 respectively.
