I don't blame corsair, but dumb users and "experts" who don't know what they are talking about. Corsair is a company that wants to make money - if they don't have a product in a given market segment, then they are losing money.

I would challenge you to prove that any system built on current technology would ever demand a power output above your current PSU lineup. With the current trend of power/watt, and power profiles comming down, larger PSU capacities seem to be opposite of current and future needs. Even with SLI setu...

I’m not too convinced about the cooling fins, they look insufficient. Reminds me a bit of the Energy + which turned out to be a real bummer in the heat and noise department. Regardless, a review here at SPCR would be interesting. The cooling fins are actually more than sufficient for the combinat...
