Corsair RM Series - where to buy

Recommended Posts

Corsair's RM series power supplies were built to address my biggest remaining issue with quiet/silent power supplies. Electrical noise can often be more annoying than fan noise because of how erratic it is.

 

So on top of building in fan control that doesn't even turn on until medium loads, Corsair also chose components that are optimized for low electrical noise

Expensive, but may very well be my next power supply. I'm excited.

Corsair  has a lot of different models, could anyone tell the difference, or are they just upgrades from the last one? like this AX > HX > Rm > TX > GS > CX > VS oh god I think this is a consumer nightmare...

VS = BAD , CX = Good for buget builds , and possibly mid-range . GS TX RM HX = Mid range - high end , really good PSU's in general . AX =  The elite enthusiast PSU's with 80+ Platinum etc.

Thanks a lot for the direct answer, I may go for the RM.

Wait, what? It only has 2x6+2pin PCI-E cables? I see this on 650, 750 and 850 units.

 

This is a no buy from me, great PSU but I can only power 1 7870 with this unless I use molex to PCI-E adapters(WHICH LOOK UGLY AS HELL).

 

Why do all of the PSU manufacturers do this!?

So basically the RM series is a silence optimized version of the HX series? Was looking to upgrade from my TX650 to get modular +more wattage, and this seems like the better option than the HX 850.

Okay, got one wrong out of the three, the 850w has 4 PCI-E.

 

But the 750w and even 650w has more than enough power for a dual 7870 setup and they only have two.

 

What gives?

But if you look on the tech specs on their website it says that the 750 w version has 4 PCIe connectors:

Weird...it only shows two in the picture...and Newegg reports the same.

Correct me if I am wrong but I think that if you look on the picture there are only 2 cables, but each cable has 2 6+2 pin connectors on it, meaning that it achieves the 4 connectors using only 2 cables.
