Are you guys making SP 140 fans that are not LEDs to go with the new H110i GTX?

THANK YOU so much for asking this!

I'm glad they mentioned they're making a new series of fans to replace the older 120 and 140 fans. Now I know I can wait for something better. :)

I can't wait, I've been dreaming of a Corsair "Noctua Killer"

Are all those deleted comments along the lines of "why are your PSUs so ****ty"? lol

  • 48 months ago

Unfortunately, people don't understand that Corsair actually has some dang good PSU's.

  • 48 months ago

It's more like the PCPP community has blasted Corsair PSU's so hard and so many have jumped on that bandwagon that many folks will immediately just look past the better quality Corsair PSUs to other brands.

  • 48 months ago

Unfortunately, despite many competent reviews, people know so little about PSUs. It's the "magic black box that puts out power". I see so many people spend $500 on a GPU and then $100 on a PSU. And then people compare apples to oranges by looking at reviews for higher end PSUs and then thinking that level of quality trickles down to lower end units in the line up.

I think 500 gpu and 100 psu would make sense, say a 980 with a 750w G2

Woah! It's jonnyguru! I bought my EVGA 850GS a while back because of your review! =)

Ironically, I also bought an EVGA 550G2 recently without a second thought and without researching because I thought that EVGA quality trickles down, too. Fortunately, in this case, it did. But your point is very valid.

Wait a minute I just realized who posted this. Your site is the only site I actually trust for power supply reviews. Thank you. For causing mess fires in this world.

Yup, Corsair actually doesn't have any crapp psu's that I know of that they are currently selling, sure some are mediocre like the CX series and most of the time they are't priced super competitively but that doesn't make it bad. I was actually thinking about picking up a RMi a while ago.

Are you guys going to make water cooled AMD cards?

Will you guys ever work with Caselabs on anything?

  • 48 months ago

Also you should sell NVIDIA graphics cards.

I have a lot of questions, should I post them in desperate comments or just one single comment?

  • 48 months ago

All in one is probably better - we'll collect them all and organize them before the stream.

What RAM do I want? More specifically, if I'm building a Skylake build I of course want DDR4, but I really have no idea on latency vs speed these days. Thanks

  • 48 months ago

Latency and speed doesn't matter for gaming or practical use, only for heavy video editing.

Q: Does Corsair have any plans to introduce a true successor to the 550D in the quiet case category?

  • 48 months ago

Will you be making any silent micro-atx cases in the future?

  • 48 months ago

Q: Will there be similar cases to the Corsair Spec 2/3?

  • 48 months ago

What do you consider to be your main business? I would consider it to be cooling equipment, but you guys might have some different ideas.

Would love to hear thoughts about the importance of CPU in gaming builds, especially on going forward where multi-core will be more important.

What's your logo supposed to be? To me it looks like the sails on a ship, but is it something else?

It's sails from a ship.

I had to do something during the video, does anyone know if they answered my question?

  • 48 months ago

Please, keep doing peripherals with aluminium, steel or whatever and stay away from plastic.

Could be a stupid question but, what is the difference between AX & RM etc at PSU? Is it the Size? Greets from germany

The differences are laid out pretty well here: http://www.corsair.com/en-us/power-supply-units

Which PSUs are more expensive and where? It's up to the retailer to set pricing. If they feel they can sell Corsair for more, that's up to them.

But take 80 Plus Gold 750W for example. RM750x is same as Seasonic KM3 (and the Corsair is arguably better and certainly quieter). RM750i is $10 more, but has full Link monitoring and control capability. XFX's TS is only $99, but it's not modular and is based on a 5 year old design. EVGA's G2 is actually $5 more than the Corsair RM.

Compare apples to apples when saying things like "why are Corsair PSUs more expensive".

That's a complete apples to oranges comparison. The AXi PSU is a fully digital platform from a tier one manufacturer (Flextronics). The Seasonic is... well.. .Seasonic.

+1 tier one manufacturer (Flex)

Well... TR2s are bottom of the line Thermaltake. So that goes without saying. That's like saying "My Subaru is so much better than that Yugo I had before."

  • 48 months ago

By how much? Also, keep in mind the AX 850i has Corsair Link.

[comment deleted]
  • 48 months ago

If "better" doesn't mean better voltage regulation, better ripple suppression, Corsair Link integration, etc... then you're correct.

But last I checked, ALL of those things matter when comparing one PSU to another. For the record: The AX860 is the same PSU as the SS P-860. And yet the AX860i is more expensive than the AX860. Hmm....

Try reading some PSU reviews so you can figure out that there's more to PSUs than wattage and 80 Plus rating.

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

well, this is incorrect. the AX860i is one of the best power supplies out. it's the better of these two for sure.
