I can say without a doubt this is the best PSU we've ever made. I can also say that nearly nobody needs 1500W, so we're looking to bring that technology down in wattage eventually. But there's nothing else like this one right now.

release date? biggrin.gif

Last I checked it was going to be May. I know they're still polishing and tweaking things.

Did Flextronics make this one too? Or did you get someone like Super Flower to help as well. I know they were working on a titanium unit.

It's Flextronics in concert with our Engineers who've spent a terrific amount of time in China over the past couple years, despite being based in the US, to get this thing to where it is now. Flextronics doesn't make desktop/enthusiast PSUs regularly so this is a ground-up design with every feature specified from Day 0 by Corsair. It takes a long time.

This! A ~750W unit with comparable efficiency and features would sell like hotcakes.

Sweet! I look forward to this unit, even though I wont be buying one. I hope it lives up to the hype! A titanium unit actually on the market would be amazing.

Think you guys can work on an aftermarket GPU cooler and backplate for my GTX 770? biggrin.gif

And I was now starting to feel the HCP 1300 love. I guess if price isn't fight, Antec could still come out ahead. Either ways, I expect both units to be amazing. thumb.gif

I'm sure the HCP 1300 will be much cheaper.

I have no doubt that it's fantastic psu and overkill for almost everyone, even here on OCN (Although my haswell-e build might need something in this neighborhood depending on how much power big maxwell will require tongue.gif). I also applaud the push for better efficiency. Just commenting that the existence of the Ti badge and being able to label as the first of it's kind will have an exorbitant impact on the msrp.

Either George knows exactly what we want to hear or Corsair really is trying to prepare for the future by offering a PSU that can handle the ever growing rigs that we are building. On top of that, offering the consumer products that they know that aren't in high demand but still make it anyways for the people that can use it, is great business. Keep up the great work Corsair. PS: wanna bring the Plat ram prices down a little lol

Also, that Corsair quality is amazing. I have a 650 Watt PSU that I used to power my Q6600 w/ a CoolIt waterkit and SLI GTX260 and the 650 handled it very well. The CPU as overclocked to 3.4 and the GPUs had a high OC as well. Day after day it would handle the strain and not give me a single issue. Still works to this day.

All in all, I feel the price is right on the money. But that being said, I wont complain if the price comes down ahah.
