Corsair bills its Builder Series of power supplies as sort of the working man's PSU. They're relatively affordable, yet sport "features normally reserved only for premium power supplies," like extra long cables that are fully sleeved, quiet cooling, and energy efficiency. With this value proposition in mind, Corsair today announced a trio of new additions to its Builder Series, the CX430 V2, CX500 V2, and CX600 V2.
As the successor the current CX family of PSUs, these version 2 units all sport 80 PLUS certification and are aimed at entry-level to mid-range home system builds. Corsair also tacked on a longer warranty, extending the guarantee from 2 years to 3 years.
"The Builder Series CX PSUs have been an integral part of Corsair's PSU business, offering home system builders and hobbyists Corsair quality and reliability at attractive prices," said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager for Components at Corsair. "Low cost of operation and trouble-free performance are highly desired features at every price point and today we are proud to offer even better efficiency and a longer warranty with the new Builder Series CX V2 PSUs."
The new PSUs are available now for $49 (CX430 V2), $64 (CX500 V2), and $74 (CX600 V2).
