Are you anxiously awaiting the launch of enthusiast-class Ivy Bridge-E chips? If so, you better settle down for the long haul; an Intel roadmap leaked earlier this year suggests that the first IB-E CPUs aren't expected to show up until sometime in 2013. Socket LGA2011 won't be left with empty stockings this Christmas, however, as a new report claims that Intel is working on an unlocked Sandy Bridge-E successor to the top-end Core i7-3960X that should be ready right in time for the holidays.
Can you remember the last time you utilized every single cable on your power supply? For most, it's probably been awhile, which is why modular power supplies are so popular, even if you don't suffer from OCD. If you've been eyeing up Corsair's Enthusiast Series PSUs and wishing they too came with modular cables, today's your lucky day.
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.
