Corsair has today made available a new line series of modular PSUs, designed for enthusiasts. And it that sounds too much for your pocket, you may take a look to the new ZS PSU series by OCZ.
Corsair's Enthusiast Series Modular PSUs share a platform with the company's Enthusiast Series TX V2 line, with the TX V2's fixed cable set upgraded to a modular cabling system. Cabling consists of an attached, fully-sleeved ATX 12V cable and a complete set of flat detachable cables that allow system builders to use only the cables they need. Enthusiast Series Modular PSUs are 80 PLUS Bronze certified, delivering at least 85% efficiency at 50% load. Designed for reliable operation in high-performance PCs, they are rated for full continuous power delivery at 50° C. The PSUs are equipped with 140mm double ball-bearing fans with adjustable fan speed in response to system temperature.
Enthusiast Series Modular power supplies will be available from Corsair-authorized retailers worldwide in July. US suggested retail prices are following:
TX550M 550 watts $109
TX650M 650 watts $129
TX750M 750 watts $149
TX850M 850 watts $169
OCZ also today announced the ZS Power Supply Series, designed to offer users value for home desktops and gaming systems.
"The ZS power supplies are available in a range of wattages and are engineered for consumers seeking both solid performance and reliability at a very cost-effective price point," said Steve Lee, Senior Vice President of Power Management at OCZ Technology Group.
The ZS Series has been designed for system builders and gamers, and is capable of powering dual-GPU platforms equipped for NVIDIA SLI and ATI CrossFireX modes. The PSU is kept cool under heavy usage with a large temperature and load-controlled 135mm double ball-bearing fan, and also meets strict 80-Plus Bronze energy saving requirements. Furthermore, the ZS Series complies with ErP (Energy Related product) Directive to ensure less than 1W of power is used in passive standby and off modes.
The OCZ ZS Series will be available in 550W, 650W, and 750W models, and all ZS Series power supplies come backed with a three year OCZ PowerSwap Warranty.
