Are they still using Seasonic? Cause that is all I will ever buy... Or PC power and cooling.

Stupid. I just bought a CX series like a month ago.


I wouldn't worry about it, HiPro / Chicory isn't actually one of the better PSU makers.

I still think Corsair should of stuck with SeaSonic or Channel Well like they have in the past instead of going with a less notable OEM.

I just want to clarify that Corsair doesn't make their own PSU's they get OEM supplies from other companies and rebrand them as their own. Many PSU brand sellers do this.

For example all Antec units are either SeaSonic or CWT, The Earthwatts line for example was made by Delta.

All of XFX's PSU's are rebranded SeaSonic units. Some Rosewill PSUs are rebranded Super Flower units. Same for Kingwin, NZXT, and Sentey. PC Power and Cooling also uses SeaSonic for an OEM.

The brand name isn't important, It's WHO actually created the PSU, what capacitors they use, etc. That is what is important.


Apparently the new RM line uses worse components than their old TX line overall. A Corsair rep said it's basically easier for them to sell a PSU with nice specs on the box than one with overall solid components.

TX is old and overpriced for its current feature set. The TX series is expensive because it has a true 50C temp rating and very stringent requirements for the internal components, ripple, noise, and other things. This was all well and good when we initially spec'd the TX out 5-6 years ago. And since the minor updates have happened every 2 or so years, it's slowly been somewhat of a dinosaur in the market. People don't care as much about super tight ripple and noise and 50C temp ratings at this price point. This is why RM was created, to address the TX family's antiquated specs and price/performance ratio.


Yep, unfortunately he's right. Most people really don't care about the internals. Ah well, as long as it's not Raidmax quality or something.

So they are intentionally providing a lesser quality product because the majority of ignorant masses don't know any better about PSU makers and will still buy it because it says "Corsair" on the box.

I'm disappointed.

PCP&P are all seasonics nowadays from what I recall.

I agree, but I can't blame them.
