Corsair rolls green VX computer power units

Corsair VX Series

Corsair hoped to mend the environment today by introducing the VX Series collection of power supplies for PCs. Where past PSUs have largely focused on performance systems, the new models take steps to cut power use when possible: the 450- and 550-watt models each boast active power factor correction that prevents oversupply and are 80 percent efficient, meeting the tougher new Energy Star levels for green performance. The reduced power draw could also be useful for home theater PCs which are often left running for hours, according to Corsair.

Most every PC builder is said to benefit from the 120mm, double ball-bearing fan whose wide coverage lets it keep the PSU cool while spinning slowly and therefore quietly. The lone 12V rail is also flexible enough to deliver continuous power even under high stress, the company says. Both the 450W and 550W units are reportedly on sale today through resellers for $86 and $100 respectively.
