Silence is golden, or in this case, 80 Plus Gold certified
Corsair on Thursday added a new line of quiet power supplies (PSUs) dubbed RM Series to its product portfolio. These are intended to replace the TX Series of PSUs while adding 80 Plus Gold level energy efficiency, whisper-quiet operation, and monitoring capabilities, Corsair said. Even when delivering high levels of power, Corsair claims you'll hardly hear a peep out of its RM Series.
"Built with low-noise capacitors and transformers, the PSUs feature a Zero RPM Fan Mode which only spins the PSU fan under the heaviest loads, allowing near silent operation in most everyday usage," Corsair explains. "The custom designed fan is extremely quiet at all speeds, allowing the PSU to remain remarkably quiet even while the fan is running. Like all Corsair PSUs, the RM Series power supplies are designed with high-quality components and are guaranteed to deliver clean, stable, continuous power."
Using a Corsair Digital Bridge cable, which is included with the RM1000 SKU (optional add-on with the other models), you can connect the PSU to your motherboard or Corsair Link hub to monitor fan speed and power delivery in real-time with Corsair Link software.
The RM Series is fully modular and comes in variety of wattage options, including 450W ($90), 550W ($100), 650W ($120), 750W ($130), 850W ($150), and 1,000W ($165). They willl be available at the end of October.
