Who makes the HX series of Corsair PSUs? I just bought an AX650 and love it but my home server's PSU died on me and it's out of warranty (OCZ) and if the HX-series is made by SeaSonic, I might as well just buy that since it isn't my main rig. Does anyone know? I did a Google search and a while back it was made by Channel Well which is not desirable to me.

As of June 24th 2011 techpowerup.com says the HX series was still manufactured by CWT. Since that's not so long ago, I'd bet CWT still manufactures them.

EDIT: The HX 650 is currently a Seasonic made PSU if I remember correctly. The HX 750/850/1050 are CWT.

I heard they aren't good, this is true right?

how are the current reviews of said psu looking on sites such as newegg? usually you can tell from those. chances are if Corsair uses it, its probably somewhat decent, if it isn't, well corsair still has good warranties.

I can tell why Seasonic units are more desirable. My current TX750 is over 2 years old (so it is a SS, V1) and i just put in another 7970. according to pheadrus' psu calc, a 3930k and 2 7970s minimum req is 750w, and this thing still handles it like a champ.

Exactly why I want a SeaSonic unit, I have had experience with SeaSonic units and they are great and I love them. They also look pretty good, I guess it's an AX for my downstairs rig as well. May pick up a 750 and put the 650 downstairs.

hx650 has always been seasonic and the ax line from 650 to 850 are also seasonic and the tx v2 non modular units are seasonic

The HX650 is SeaSonic? Do you have proof of this or just word of mouth? I'm sorry but I have really bad purchase issues.

I think the HX lines are made by Channel Well Technologies? They are good and reliable from what I've read.

Found it, is CWT after all.
