Breathing new life into a product line is never an easy thing to do. All too often, the lineup is just scrapped for something new to replace it. Corsair takes a different approach with this most recent update to the Corsair CX Series by adding modular cabling to the entire lineup.

Often considered a luxury option, modular cabling is often only found on expensive, high-end power supplies. This is always seemed backwards to me as modular cabling is designed to reduce clutter in your PC case and improve airflow due to few obstructions. This would be very helpful to budget PC builds where space and airflow is at a premium.

This should bring more attention to the CX Series 430, 500, 600, and 750 watt PSUs now with modular cabling support. The CX Series is also 80+ Bronze certified and comes with a 3 year warranty with a price range from $59.99 to $99.99 MSRP.

Corsair Launches CX Series Modular Power Supplies

– Corsair Unveils Modular Cable Versions of Affordable CX Series PSU Line –

December 18, 2012 — Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC hardware market, today announced the addition of the CX Series Modular™ power supply units (PSUs) to the company's award-winning PSU line-up. Available in 430, 500, 600, and 750 watt power configurations, the new CX Modular PSUs provide PC builders with the stable reliability of Corsair PSUs at a price that is easy on the pocket.

Unlike budget PSUs, the CX Series Modular PSUs feature a hybrid modular cable system that allows PC builders to install just the cables (PCI-E, SATA, and 4-pin) required for their computer's configuration, for a cleaner look and improved airflow and cooling. The standard ATX form factor and ample cable lengths of the PSUs provide worry-free compatibility with the majority of PCs. In addition, the 80 PLUS® Bronze certified PSUs deliver up to 85% energy efficiency at typical 50% usage loads, producing less heat, improving reliability, and reducing noise.

“Corsair CX Series PSUs have an unrivalled reputation for reliability, which has made them the clear choice for value-conscious PC builders,” said Thi La, Senior VP and GM of Memory and Enthusiast Component Products at Corsair. "We designed the new CX Series Modular in response to customer requests for a modular PSU at lower price points. They are built to the same high level of quality as our Corsair CX Series, with new configurable cables that simplify installation and help PCs stay cool and uncluttered."

Pricing, Availability, and Warranty

The Corsair CX Series Modular PSUs are available immediately from Corsair’s worldwide network of resellers and distributors. They are backed by a 3-year warranty and Corsair's well-earned reputation for quality, compatibility, and performance.
