Corsair Extends Select PSU Warranties to 10 Years

One of the ways for a company to differentiate their products is by the warranty length. As a response to EVGA lengthening their PSU warranties to 10 years, Corsair is striking back by making some of their own warranties 10 years as well. This will apply to a few select high-end lineup which will see a warranty length increase from 7 years to 10 years. The extension applies immediately and without any need for extra registration.

Given the warranty extension, it appears that Corsair is quite confident about the quality of their PSUs. After all, the warranty length has nearly been increased by 50%. The extension applies to the AXi series,  HXi series, RMi series and the RMx lineup. All of these are produced by Flextronics and CWT, both of whom have close ties with Corsair. Interestingly, the very nice AX series aren’t covered  under the extension though that may be due to the manufacture being Seasonic, likely due to failed negotiations with Corsair.

Having a good PSU is critical to a system as a bad unit has the chance to wreck the rest of the expensive system. Given Corsair’s great track record with warranty claims and helping replace damaged parts, they must be confident to apply the warranty to products from the past. Hopefully, we will see more PSU makers extending their warranties as well. Let the warranty wars begin!

Corsair Unveils New RMx PSU Series

If you should be in the market for a new power supply or maybe a completely new system, then you might want to take a closer look at corsair’s latest offering. The new Corsair RMx series is 80 Plus Gold certified and comes with 550W, 650W, 750W, 850W and 1000W capacities.

The new series boasts one of the most popular features as of late as it decreases the overall noise in your system. When in low power consumption mode and your system isn’t drawing so much power that it generates too much heat, then the fan will not speed up and thereby create no noise. And we all love a silent system.

The new RMx series PSUs provide the high-quality electrical performance that you’ll want, using only industry-leading 105°C rated Japanese capacitors and specifically selected premium components to ensure long-term reliability and stability under even the most demanding conditions.

The series is fully modular, allowing you to install only the cables you need and keep everything neat and organized and they’re also compatible with Corsair’s wide range of optional cable mods in various colours.

Every PSU in the RMx range is backed by Corsair’s comprehensive 7-year warranty and Corsair’s worldwide customer support network.

The new PSUs should be available now as they are set for a September release and we’re pretty much at the end of that month. The suggested retail prices are $109.99 for the 550W model, $119.99 for the 650W, $129.99 for the 750W, $149.99 for the 850W, and $179.99 for the 1000W model.
