Doesn't look like you know how retailers sell Corsair products. If it has sails expect a significant markup because the uninformed will always buy it.

Yes, because everybody with a Corsair part in their system is "uninformed" rolleyes.gif

Come on, man.


Here's a 350D for $20 less than the MSRP @ Newegg
Here's an HX850 for $30 less than the MSRP @ Newegg
And a n M65 for $10 less than MSRP @ Amazon

We are always putting stuff on promo and very few people are pricing above MSRP these days unless something is new and hot, and even then we typically get them to drop it back down pretty quickly.

Sounds like someone is bitter about the GPU "crysis" wink.gif

How about the mining affected PSUs that have not been dropped back down? The ax1200i was at $399 at Newegg before getting sold out ($50 over MSRP) : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139039

The RM850 has an MSRP of $149 but Newegg seems to think it is $159 and so has graciously offered a $10 discount: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139057

Ditto with the HX1050 except that they didn't even bother lowering their inflated MSRP, they let your mail-in rebates (let's not even get into that!) do the work and bring it back down to actual MSRP: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139034

In the future less power will be needed,not more.

In George's defense , Corsair's stuff typically is rebated $20 and discounted 10-20% after the initial run goes to early adopters.

IMO The only problem is the RM series was less than stellar given the alternatives (~$80-90 , RM550 has been $60 before) and the CSM is "Great Wall" (it's been $50-60 before)

AX760 has hit $130 on Newegg too and the AX860 has been $140.

You'd have a point if you were outside of the USA.

Not only that, but most of the time it happens to be a .. product.

What is needed and what is wanted are two very different things. People have been saying this to us since we started selling PSUs 8 years ago. "Low wattage is the future."

The point is, it's not happening. X99 is going to be using huge amounts of power. NVIDIA announced the Titan Z today. The 780 Ti, the 290X, all new GPU architectures are using huge amounts of power, and the ultra-high end people are putting multiple GPUs in their systems.

The truth is that the average power consumption of a "mainstream" computer will go down. But there'll always be people pushing the limits. That's who this is for.

Moreover, the impressive efficiency at the lower wattages negates my usual point of sizing a PSU to the load. If this unit comes with the 7 year warranty, you'll have a safe bet for at least that long, no matter what the future holds.
