    It's CWT GPK with upgraded secondary, from group regulation to DC-DC.


    Original CWT GPK with group regulation, also a CM.

    Just two notes: first of all, I dunno in USA, but in Italy the V450S costs almost TWICE the G450M (47 euros vs 84 euros); then, the actual fan profile (as seen on relevant Aris reviews) is much more quieter on the GM, and even if personally I welcome that fact, on the other hand that's rather odd, because the GM is less efficient and sports less reliable caps.

    It definately looks like a modified CWT platform. I don't have any hints for Enhance. I'd like you to make sure before I cange anything in my review.

    Yeah your right, ain't awesome enough, so it can't be a Corsair.

    They didn't need it, Corsair already has the CS-Series Modular.

    Guess this second thermistor in series has been added to tame the inrush current, which in the G550M (with one single thermistor of similar size besides the bulk cap) was a bit high.

    It looks like a CWT, Aris spotted it as a CWT more than a year ago, RealHardTechX says it's a CWT, it differs a lot from an Enhance-based VS, Mask and your other finest co-forumers say it's a CWT, who on Earth is Phaedrus?

    Phaedrus, I'm just teasing, so please don't take offense!

    I'd add that I never saw a black PCB on recent Enhance units, but I'm not an expert in any respect.
