Corsair RM Series Full Modular PSU Released – New Bang for the Buck Power Supplies
Published on September 16th, 2013
Corsair has released a new line of power supplies featuring a fully modular cabling system, an ultra silent capacitors and transistors, plus 80 Plus certified PSUs – the new Corsair RM Series. If you want a silent but power efficient power supply, then this is a must have for you. These Corsair RM power supplies are built with low-noise capacitors and is cooled by a 135mm fan that only turns on when in load. See specifications, features, price and where you can get one below.
The Corsair RM Series lineup features an 80 PLUS Gold certification, delivering over 92% energy efficiency at real world load conditions. It also features a full modular cabling system, and has a low-profile and flat black modular cables.
There are 6 options for the RM series namely; RM450W, RM550W, RM650W, RM750W, RM860W and RM1000W, each built with a Corsair NR135L fan that features a ZERO RPM Fan mode that only turns on during 40% and above loads. But if you have a Corsair AX/AXi or new the HX series, you have already seen this kind of feature.
All RM power supplies comply with the ATX 12V v22.4 and EPS 2.92 standards and has an Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) with PF value of 0.99. All are also fully compatible with the latest Intel Haswell and Intel Ivy-Bridge E systems, making sure that your system is future proof.
The new super silent and power efficient power supplies are also compatible with Corsair Link for real-time monitoring of fan speed, and power delivery. All the RM Series PSUs come with a 5 year limited warranty and judging from the price Corsair has given them, I’m pretty sure these are the new bang for the buck power supplies and will replace the old TX and HX series.
