Corsair's HX-series power supplies are widely regarded as some of the very best, and the Californian manufacturer is today teasing two new models that will be launched before the end of the month.

The upcoming HX750W - pictured below in pre-production form - and a second of unknown wattage will arrive at retail with the familiar HX-series aesthetics, at least 80+ Bronze certification, flat-black modular cables and a new customised fan-speed profile to ensure quiet operation when under load.

No word on pricing just yet, but expect an official launch in just a few weeks. As with the recent HX450W, both new models will be backed by Corsair's seven-year warranty.

Any ideas who's the OEM for this one?
Our engineering partner for these models is CWT, although, as with other Corsair PSUs, they're based on a unique, customised design. We modified the PCB layouts and tweaked the components to minimise ripple/noise and generally improve performance, efficiency and so on. So they are very much Corsair PSUs.

This is excellent news. Although I don't really need 750W, getting anything less than that will feel like a downgrade compared to my current Silverstone. Depending on how good the reviews of the new Corsair are, I might well be getting a Corsair chassis, PSU and memory in my next build…
The other could do with being an HX 850W ideally. There's a hole in Corsair's product line around there. An 850W modular PSU with the same efficiency and low noise as the 520/620 would sell well I reckon. The HX1000 is too expensive and way too loud!:surprised:
