    Default Corsair Gaming Series GS600...

    Hi all,
    what's the difference between the existing HX series with the new gaming series?

    GS are CWT PSHII units rated at 40*C, with Taiwanese capacitors, fixed cables, a three year warranty, and a blue LED fan.

    HX are more high-end.
    It's my PSU in a box!
    Ooo-ooh,
    My PSU in a box, baby!

    Put another way, GS are CX series (still solid, but a step down in quality from even the VX series) plus blue LED bling.

    This isn't true, they're entirely different platforms with different specs. GS is significantly better than CX.

    Basically the problem was that VX/TX/HX used to be all pretty much the same quality (and costs were very close, save for the add-on for modular cables on HX).

    CX is basically designed to be the best <$50 products out there - and GS is meant to be the best price/wattage balance for a "gamer" type of PSU (for which, believe it or not, there is a significant market).

    TX, HX, and AX will remain the higher end, enthusiast and up, products.

    That's the new FAX series. Which doubles as a paper shredder since we sharpened the fan blades.


    Seriously though - there's a lot of different people out there buying PSUs and for the past 4 years we've only been able to address our core market. We've done well there - so now it's a matter of expanding into new markets that we don't currently address. That's all CX and GS are for.

    Huh. Obviously, you'd know, but that wasn't the impression you gave me earlier.

    They're both 3 year warranty, 80 plus gold white, 40°C rated, Taiwanese caps...

    I agree it's a different platform and all that, and I'm sorry if I gave that impression. The fact that they're significantly higher wattage is so obvious I thought it didn't need to be mentioned. I was referring to the quality level Corsair is aiming for.

    Can you explain how a GS600 is better than a CX400 in any way other than 50% more power?

    Ah... I just noticed that the new CX430 is a step down: 2 year warranty and rated for 430 W at 30°C.

    Is that what you're referring to?

    @Redbeard

    Is it true that Corsair will reduce (significant) the shipping of review samples? At least in Europe this is what I 've heard.
