This explains the discounts on the other Corsair power supplies I've seen lately. I've used Corsair power supplies for the last 3 years and they are already nearly silent. I wonder if these fans will shut off entirely if they aren't needed. Too bad the gold-rated power supplies they make are so expensive.

I seem to remember that the 850TX v1 came out well before the 950TX v1.  Maybe, in the wake of Sandy Bridge's power consumption and single x16 lane, they decided that those running tri-SLI or 3 way CFX would have to be running X58, and thus consume more than 950W.  This seems to be geared for those Sandy Bridge users who will be running simple SLI or CFX with the latest high-end hardware, and it seems, to me at least, that it is well suited.
