    The fact that our web team is the same size, but now Corsair has thirteen product categories.

    And there used to be some TX models with hardwired cables, 80plus regular to bronze and probably silver efficiency.
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    What's the difference between the RMx and RMi fans? Which is the better?
    I don't get if the RMx and RMi are just the same PSU but the ICUE and Corsair Link

    RMi has a better bearing (FDB vs Rifle) so the fan should in theory last longer, otherwise yes the only difference between them is the iCue functionality.

    As for the fans themselves, it's just the bearing design which has changed. A rifle bearing and an FDB are close in nature as they're both sleeve derivatives which use a groved shaft to move oil through the bearing keeping it lubricated. An FDB uses a sealed bearing and a different type of oil which gives it a longer lifespan.
