Following in OCZ's footsteps, Corsair has diversified further beyond the memory business by introducing its first power supplies (PDF). Branded the HX Series, the two PSUs combine modular cabling, active power factor correction, 80% efficiency, and cooling via a single 120mm fan Corsair says is "whisper quiet." The two PSUs pack some punch: they feature 620W and 520W ratings, each with triple +12V rails and combined +12v outputs of 600W and 480W, respectively. As one might expect from enthusiast PSUs, both the HX620W and the HX520W also sport two PCI Express power connectors, making them ready for a CrossFire or SLI dual-GPU setup. Warranty coverage for both models is five years, right in line with OCZ's SLI-Ready PowerStream offerings.
Corsair says the HX620W and HX520W are available today, and we can already spot them listed at a single reseller on our price search engine. The 620W model is listed for $169.95, and its 520W sibling is $119.95. Corsair's press release doesn't disclose official pricing, though, so prices from other stores may vary.
