750W Platinum SFX PSU

Yes, you read that correctly. Somehow, Corsair managed to cram 750 watts into an SFX PSU. Not only that, but the unit is also platinum rated. I got the chance to stumble across numerous SFX units, but the highest I had seen up to that point was 700W with a gold rating. The fact that Corsair pulled off that wattage and efficiency blew my mind. It even manages to have a silent fan mode below 50c.

Surprising Focus on Accessories

Although CES can be a time to show off big things, Corsair focused on the little details that can make big impacts. Besides showing off an SFX PSU, they decided to give builders some premium custom sleeved cable options for PSUs as well. The kits come in a variety of colors ranging from black, blue, red, white, and various combinations of those. They are guaranteed to fit type 4 Corsair PSUs, with a compatibility list for others.

Corsair did something else interesting at CES. They announced cable extensions for the front panel connections…..in white. It’s one of those minor details that makes a world of difference for custom builders though. I may not be a white system kinda guy, but I appreciate the thought that goes into it for other builders.

And a lot More

White made the rounds on Corsair products, including their fans and CPU coolers. They even had a tube of their own thermal paste, plus a new LED design that ended up in the Dominator Platinum RGB RAM kit. You can see more on the video, and don’t forget to to check back for more CES announcements.
