    Just in case anybody is interested - the HX750 and HX850 were just 80 Plus Gold certified. I might be wrong but I think we're the only guys actually shipping our gold certified high-wattage PSUs. (well, and CWT, since they are the ODM).

    Hm, could it be that corsair uses a different fan on the produtction units??

    as you can see here it seems that there is an Ong hua HA1425H12B-Z fan with 0,5A/12VDC in the production HX750...

    of course the low load test is even more important than active mode, Intel will release the new power management C6 requirement soon the CPU will not consume power during idle mode and the power supply must capable with 12V/0A, It's great if JonnyGuru keep doing low load test 10% and 5% to find out the future proof power unit.

    So I have a question about the HX750/850 now. I have read that Corsair asked the 80Plus Group to degrade the rating of these PSU's to Silver? I also read that Corsair designed the PSU to meet the Silver requirement but when 80 Plus tested the units they actually qualified for the Gold certification. However the units were so close to the borderline of the Silver/Gold requirement border that Corsair decided to market the PSU's as having a Silver rating. My question is, is the above info true?......I wouldn't want to perpetuating FUD if I don't have to. Thanks.

    Yes it is indeed true.

    Confirmed by a Corsair employee on this website...if I could find the thread where he stated it, I would link it

    I can link this though

    Thanks for the link. I had read that before but for the life of me I couldn't find the models they were talking about anywhere on that page. Maybe it's time for me to visit the optometrist.
