    I got this PSU a couple of weeks ago. It looks really sweet in my black Tsunami case, its quiet too compared to my old Hyper PSU.
    It's having an easy ride for now, but will get more of a work-out when I get another 8800GT alphadog and go SLI.

    me wants!

    but for all single card configuration, surly a 620w is enough?? even for 9800Gx2?

    A very good PSU. I have nothing but priase for my 520W version.

    Having said that, I'd wait for the modular version, or the 1000W one.

    yup, the 620W version will be enough.

    This would be a no-brainer for me if it was modular. Still want one though.

    Damn those results are impressive! Corsair really know what they are doing with these power supplies... I just sincerely hope they will never put poorly performing models to the markets.

    Would being modular affect its performance at all? Or could we take it as read that the interconnect are merely personal preference and the fact this one is "awesome" means any future modular variant is guaranteed to be l33t?

    Another fine product from Corsair - I was sceptical at first, usually companies which start to try and diversify end up with distinctly meh products, but these are total cheesecake.

    Yes it does - by adding an extra connection into the mix, especially one "user driven" it can lead to voltage drops and more rarely improper power delivery.

    Well, if PC Power and Cooling are to be believed, personally I think as long as you supply a good, locking connector with corrosion resistance you can't really go wrong - after all - AV people specialise in getting data from one end to another as perfectly as possible and look how many racks of kit they have.

    Great review. Of course, reaches the quality that we have come to expect from Corsair supplies :)

    I can see where PCP&C are coming from, but unless you use a crappy, bodged connector I think it's a fairly unlikely situation. AV-ists use connectors all the time, probably because half the time soldering things together would give a worse connection than a decent interface.

    Exactly my point. Tbh, I think PCPC ride a certain wave of elitism and arrogance in their beliefs. They're obviously good at what they do, but to completely ignore an entire market segment and customer preference is ridiculous. I wish I could live off a business model like that.

    Too right tbh - if only the rest of us could ignore what I'd say is the fastest-growing enthusiast PSU segment.

    I know I certainly wouldn't bother with a non-modular PSU for my main rig anymore unless it was really special - I'd consider this Corsair simply because it's properly brilliant, but even then I'd have reservations about them bringing a modular version out...

    not entirely true, pcp&c belongs to ocz, so its bascially buy ocz for modular or buy pcp&c for non modular, but its the same company that ends up getting the money.

    I hear the Seasonic does a high efficiency and uber quiet psu (no voiding the sticker) especially on thier 650W model, any chance for a review/comparison? I've been eyeballing it on newegg for quite some time.. but the praise you lavish on this corsair makes me rethink what to do.

    Great review as always :clap: As this has passed all the test with flying colours, would it be possible to tes it at higher wattages? It would be interesting to see if this could cope with 800-850W for example.

    And surely even 3-way SLI doesn't need this kind of power?

    Nvidia's marketing scheme does need that kind of power for 3-way SLI though... ;)
