The new RMi Series PSUs raise the bar for what PC enthusiasts can expect from an 80 Plus Gold certified power supply with the addition of silent Zero-RPM fan operation, Corsair Link customization and monitoring, all 105°C- rated Japanese capacitors, and fully modular cables.

    I really dig the color scheme on these ones!

    I suppose these are the RPS0014, RPS0015 and RPS0016 model numbers that surfaced just three days ago.

    100% all Japanese 105°C capacitors: Premium internal components ensure solid power delivery and long-term reliability

    took a quick peak at them on corsair.com, they seem to be rated to a higher temp and have a better fan then the RM series. I would be interested to see how they do in testing.

    Could be, but the 650W is smaller, so that one is different anyhow.

    I'm only not seeing the usefulness off this serie with the RM and HXi already here, more so if all the RM's would get Jap caps.

    RMI 650 is different, yes.

    The RMi is more like a Gold HXi than an updated RM.

    The similarities:

    • 80 Plus Gold
    • Fully Modular
    • Zero RPM mode
    • SP135 fan
    • LLC Resonant Mode topology with DC to DC for the non-primary rails


    The "upgrades":

    • 7 year warranty vs. 5 years
    • ALL Japanese capacitors, including solids
    • Rated at 50°C vs. 40°C
    • FDB fan vs. Rifle bearing fan
    • Digital Link output allows for more monitoring and control than RM


    If/when RM gets "updated" across the board, it's just going to get all Japanese caps and will probably lose Link to reduce cost.
