Corsair has a great reputation for being one the leading performance memory module companies in the industry. They are the providers of some of the fastest memory around, and it is no surprise that when they made the foray into the power supply market, they offered high performance units in the HX-series. Continuing the HX-series legacy, Corsair now offers the VX-series. Touting the VX-series as having "the industry's most efficient power management" and "rock solid performance", we'll see if Corsair can live up to these claims with the VX550 550w power supply.
The VX-series units closely resemble the HX-series units, with their black clad exteriors and 120mm cooling fan. The VX-series steps it up with 80 Plus efficiency certification, and the consolidation of it's 12v line from three rails to one.
