CORSAIR Celebrates Ten Years of PSUs and Ten Million PSUs Sold!
FREMONT, CA – November 30th 2016 - CORSAIR®,
a world leader in enthusiast memory, high-performance gaming hardware
and PC components, today reached two new milestones, celebrating ten
years since first entering the PSU market and the sale of the ten
millionth CORSAIR PSU.
Over the past decade, CORSAIR has revolutionized the enthusiast PSU
industry with an unrelenting commitment to product quality and
innovation that has seen the PSU evolve from an after-thought into the
high-quality heart of a modern PC. CORSAIR has championed a range of key
features to push PC power supplies to new levels of performance,
functionality and customization. Modular PSUs have made building PCs
easier, Zero RPM fan mode allows the PSU’s fan to switch off entirely
under low loads and with digitally controlled power and CORSAIR LINK PSU
monitoring, users can find out exactly how their PSU is performing in
To commemorate this achievement, CORSAIR is proud to announce the extremely limited CORSAIR RM1000i Special Edition. Individually numbered, finished in striking arctic white and equipped with both a white LED-lit cooling fan and new individually sleeved white cables, only 100 of these PSUs will be built, giving enthusiasts a chance to own a unique piece of CORSAIR history.
Ten Million PSUs
With over ten million CORSAIR PSUs sold to customers around the world, CORSAIR has crunched the numbers to visualize this landmark. With every unit at full load, ten million PSUs could output more than 650 Megawatts; enough to power three Nimitz class aircraft carriers. What’s more, the combined length of all the cabling from ten million PSUs is enough to fully circle the globe (with 4,000 miles to spare). And the weight of ten million PSUs? Equivalent to four Eiffel Towers, 113 Statues of Liberty or 10,000 Asian Elephants!
