    Anyway, what are your market prices, if they are even there?

    Seems to be direct answer to all those cheap 80+ Gold units and semi-passive EVGA G2 which dropped to 550 W too, but with only 5year warranty.

    Even the addition of the minimal Link capability implemented in the RM is a significant cost adder. And with customers having to buy a dongle on top of that, the implementation was pretty much a complete failure.

    The RMx SHOULD be cheaper than the old RM; even with the all Japanese capacitors. And the RMi should be $10 more.

    I think he is saying he didn't know the original RM units were compatible with Corsair link

    Oh.. Yeah. It only monitors +12V load (in Amperes) and fan RPM. But the output is analog, so an analog to digital dongle was needed to plug it into a USB port.

    Have an RM650i, already published part of the user review.

    It's OK, some things I don't like (and that's NOT the caps in the cable)...
    Cables shorter than spec, ATX Main is more like 600mm, not 610mm...

    Survived Chroma but surprisingly it switched off before reaching 120% load...
