Paul Lilly

There's no mistaking the target audience for Corsair's new line of power supplies; it says so right on the box. Enthusiast Series TX V2, is the name of the new line, which is the successor to the original Enthusiast Series TX family. This time around, Corsair says you can expect more of the same -- like Japanese capacitors and a comprehensive fixed cable set -- as well as improved energy efficiency, 80PLUS Bronze certification, and lower noise levels.

"For years, the Enthusiast Series TX PSUs have been a favorite of gamers, high-performance PC enthusiasts, and anybody who requires reliable, low-noise power delivery," said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager for Components at Corsair. "The new TX V2 power supplies are quieter and even more energy efficient, while providing the same legendary reliability, flexibility, and value that customers have loved about the original TX PSUs."

Interestingly, the flaghip V2 tops out at 850W versus 950W for the original Enthusiast Series. All of the V2s sport a single +12V rail with the 850W boasting 70A on the +12V line, 8 SATA connectors, 8 4-pin peripheral connectors, and 4 PCI-E connectors.

The new PSUs are available now in the U.S. for $140 (TX850 V2), $120 (TX750 V2), and $100 (TX650 V2).
