Corsair has just announced its latest CX Series power supply. It’s no surprise that it’s rated at 750 watts, considering that is the recommended PSU rating for NVIDIA’s latest RTX GPUs. This fully modular PSU is loaded with a number of options the modern PC builder may be looking for.

Push the button on the back, connect to a CORSAIR iCUE RGB Lighting Controller (sold separately), or use your motherboard’s built-in ARGB control with the included adapter cable. Control your lighting however you want to.

This PSU may not have a built-in option for NVIDIA’s latest 12-pin connector, and it is Bronze rated, but it does feature a number of other modern options, from integration of Intel’s C6/C7 sleep state functions to no less than three ways to control RGB, including off. They have tried to provide a robust feature set at a nominal cost. However, those wishing to fully maximize RGB with a number of recent AIB Ampere-based cards should be able to integrate some extra colors here if they feel there’s still not enough light coming from their rigs. The CX750F is listed for $109.99 on Corsair’s site.

  1. Yep, I agree we need to see some reviews. Over the years I’ve read a number of [USER=2]@Paul_Johnson[/USER]. The higher-end ones usually do o.k. but once you get into the bronze levels it can be a mixed bag. I have, however, used several Corsair Gold/Platinums in my rigs. All are 1000 watt or higher, and all have performed admirably for me. One of them is getting close to ten years old now(the one in my 4930K rig).

  2. I have an ancient OCZ 650W unit running a midrange desktop as a server, a 650W Seasonic Gold that I bought [I]used[/I] nearly a decade ago powering another desktop as a server, and an 850W EVGA in my gaming desktop which cost about as much as this new Corsair back before SHTF in the manufacturing industry.

    I bought the EVGA to assist in troubleshooting an issue that turned out to be PEBCAK and simply didn’t swap it out because it worked.

    The other two work just fine still, after all these years and numerous builds and abuse!

    But back to this new Corsair 750W CX – they just need to hit the basics. QA will be a big one, along with just making sure that the fan is tuned properly. If they do that, it seems like it’d become the ‘default value recommendation’ for many enthusiast builds.

  3. Hea my issue is the new products since ipo. Now its a new company with profit first more than it was before. So now we get to wait and see if they make quality hardware still.
